Look after the Locals: New restaurant set to impress
Welcome to Queenstown! Bangkok Eatery Thai and Sushi, the new business being established in Frankton at Terrace Junction.
It’s another chapter in a very successful Alexandrabased business, ‘Pisa Pizza’ which opened in September 2004. Initially a small local and friendly takeaway pizza shop, the first stage of expansion
occurred in 2007, when Ole’ Termnuwong joined the business owned by Bruce Wallis and the Thai kitchen was added. Some nine years later another stage in this businesses development will occur when the doors are opened on ‘Bangkok Eatery (Thai and Sushi) at Terrace Junction in Frankton. Having already successfully expanded into Oamaru in 2010 when ‘Bangkok Recipe’ was opened, it is now the turn of the Central-Lakes District to embrace this new eating place and sample their delicious menus. Bruce and Ole’s philosophy in their businesses is to ‘Look after the Locals’, which means residents in the Frankton, Lake Hayes, Queenstown and surrounding areas can be assured they are able to have easy access to good quality food at an affordable price. Ole’ says they are extremely proud of every dish that they send out from their kitchens in terms of the quality of the food, and is an aspect which is consistent across all three venues. However, they do plan to include a range of products into their Queenstown outlet which only those living in the local area will have exclusive access to. And the most popular item on the menu? Having a pizza shop helped the team to create their signature entre´ e dish which is Ham and Cheese Wontons, although their Rice Patties are proving to be popular and compliment many of the other dishes they sell. Step inside the doors of all three eateries in Frankton, Alexandra and Oamaru, and the level of service people can expect will be exceptional. ‘‘Our team are highly experienced and motivated. Their Eastern service-attitude is one of the main reasons we asked them to join the team,’’ Ole’ said. Establishing their various businesses has enabled them to share the good products they create and have a steady list of return clientele who will readily vouch for the yummy food available from them. So when you visit the new Frankton ‘ Bangkok Eatery and Thai’, make sure you say hello to Gibb, the main restaurant manager, Prasit and Mon the Thai chefs who are already well-known in the Queenstown area, and Keita the Sushi Chef. And if you time it right, there’s every chance that Ole’ will be on site to prepare your menu selection.
