Emporium Thai has been voted one of the 100 best Thai Restaurants in the US. Family-owned and operated, we have shared the wonderful flavors of authentic Thai food with our customers since 2000. We can't help it: Cooking is in our genes.
Supis Sungkamee, our 88 year-old mom, bore 12 children in Southern Thailand and instilled in us a passion for authentic Thai cooking. In 1990, she won a lottery for a U.S. green card which allowed our family to become US immigrants and eventually US citizens. We are blessed and grateful to be able to share our family's recipes. Emporium Thai has become a favorite destination for those who appreciate fine Thai cuisine. Mom is so proud!
Our Executive Chef, Gina Sungkamee, is passionate about cooking. She studied for four years at Bangkok's most prestigious culinary school. She specializes in the cuisines of all regions of Thailand, particularly the cuisine of Southern Thailand, where our family grew up. It's no surprise, then, that our food has been recognized for its excellence. Our many awards include:
— L.A City Guide: Most Favorite Thai Restaurant 2015 – Los Angeles Travel Magazine
