The 1,500-square-foot restaurant is open daily for lunch and dinner, seats 30 and has five employees, said Pirom Tintong, co-owner of Nida Thai Cuisine. The menu focuses on traditional Thai cuisine, including curries, stir-fry dishes and specialty noodle dishes. The owners are seeking a liquor license.
The ribbon-cutting, with representatives of the South Metro Chamber of Commerce, is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Thursday. The grand opening, featuring free samples from the restaurant’s menu served buffet-style, will follow the ribbon-cutting, from noon to 2 p.m. The space in the Centerville East Plaza previously housed Carmela’s Pizzeria and, before that, a Cassano’s Pizza King restaurant.
