***ORIGINAL STORY (Nov. 26, 2019)***

The new Thai restaurant that has been in the works in the Town &  Country Shopping Center at Stroop Road and Far Hills Avenue in Kettering is gearing up to open in the next week or so, its owner says.

Mint Thonawn, founder of Singha Thai Homestyle Thai Food, told this news outlet she is putting the finishing touches on her new restaurant and may do a “soft opening” shortly after Thanksgiving.

Singha Thai is located at 4123 West Town and Country Road in the “Village Shops” section of Town & Country, which consists of smaller retail spaces behind the main Town &  Country retail building.

Thonawn and family members previously operated another restaurant called Singha Thai in the Hyde Park section of Cincinnati, but recently sold that restaurant, which now goes by Singha Thai Contemporary Thai & Sushi, and began looking in the Dayton area. She immediately liked the 2,000-square-foot space in the Town & Country shopping center, which is in the same retail building as First Watch restaurant, near Panera Bread Cafe.

She and her family have moved from Cincinnati to Kettering. “People here are so much friendlier than people in Cincinnati,” Thonawn said. “And they drive better, too.”

The menu will include many classic Thai dishes but will also include special offerings that come from family recipes, Thonawn said.

“What we cook at home, we cook and serve here,” she said.

Singha Thai will seat about 32 and will be open for lunch and dinner six days a week, closed Mondays. The restaurant will open without a liquor license, but intends to apply for one soon, Thonawn said.
