Mantra Thai was founded in October 2014. As Newcastle Restaurant Week 2018 is taking place this month, we thought now would be the perfect time to present a little bit of history on our beloved restaurant.
Mantra Thai was founded by Jeab Prapunwong, who spent his early years as a waiter working at The Waterside Palace in Newcastle – the very same place where Mantra Thai is now located. After realising the true potential of the venue, Mr. Prapunwong decided to turn his dream of bringing authentic Thai cuisine to Newcastle into a reality.
“I’ve always been passionate about Thai cuisine,” Mr. Prapunwong told Living North Magazine earlier this year.
“I wanted to provide a genuine Thai dining experience for the people of Newcastle, so they could enjoy the fresh vibrant flavours of the cuisine. Diners have the opportunity to enjoy the vital, tantalising flavours of authentic Thai dishes, made by our chefs who have over 40 years’ experience between them. Their skill means our diners benefit from cuisine which is full of flavour and expertly crafted.”
Thanks to the dream of Mr. Prapunwong and the passion and dedication of our chefs, waiters and waitresses, we are now considered the top Thai restaurant in Newcastle.
With Newcastle Restaurant Week 2018 taking place across the famous North East city, Mantra Thai will be taking part with a very special offer. Don’t forget; you can always make reservations online.
