About Tom

Tom was born in Thailand in a small city of 7000 called Ta-key. He learned to appreciate the cusines of Thailand from his dad, uncles and many cousins. He came to the US at the age of 16 with his mother Siri. During his early employment, Tom worked in several restaurants and served as Chef at the Smugglers Inn in Biloxi, Mississippi. Tom joined the USs Army and spent a career in the Field Artillery and Infantry with a Personnel MOS. His service included tours of duty in Germany, Kosovo, Kuwait and Iraq. He retired as a Seargeant First Class.


Challenges

One of the challenges Tom faced when opening an authentic Thai restaurant was to find both the ingredients needed and a kitchen staff to help wiht the food preparation. Many of his Thai ingredients are sourced and shipped from Tucson, Albuquerque, and other major cities. Tom used his years of leadership from Sugglers Inn and the Airmy to train Key people in authentic Thai food preparation.
