A new restaurant concept called Thai Kitchen will open soon at 11255 Woodstock Rd in suite 500. The 2,150-square-foot space was previously home to Nosh Table and Tap, a restaurant and bar that featured contemporary American cuisine and cocktails.
The location is part of Stonebridge Square, a retail center that is home to longtime tenants That Dirty Dog and American Hair Cuts.
Thai Kitchen is eyeing an opening between mid-January and early February of next year. Owner John Yoon told What Now Atlanta that the menu will feature basic Thai food such as Pad Thai and other noodle dishes, fried rice, and several different appetizers. The forthcoming full-service restaurant will also serve beer and wine.
“It will be a place where people can stop by and drink beer with an appetizer,” Yoon said.
Developing the menu is Yoon’s cousin, who will serve as the restaurant’s chef, and has plenty of experience in Thai cuisine. Yoon’s cousin owns two successful Thai restaurants in Seoul, South Korea, and has been featured on TV several times. Yoon calls him “a really good chef,” sharing that he went to Thailand several years ago to learn Thai food and is now bringing some of those original recipes to Roswell.
When asked what attracted him to Roswell to open a restaurant, Yoon said the area is really nice and people seem to settle down there. Woodstock Rd also “gets a lot of traffic,” he observed, noting that the location where Thai Kitchen will be opening is just a stone’s throw from a Trader Joe’s anchored shopping center.
Yoon himself is no stranger to the hospitality industry, having worked in restaurants for the past 20 years. He is the owner of Samurai Blue, a Japanese grill in Lawrenceville, and previously owned Asian restaurants in Seoul, New Jersey, and Stockbridge, Georgia.
“I know how to cook Korean, Chinese, and Japanese,” Yoon said. “But I love Thai food and have been wanting to do that for some time. We [Yoon and his cousin] are going to be in the kitchen together and I can’t wait to open.”
Thai Kitchen will also offer to go and delivery through Uber Eats and DoorDash.
