Love Thai Sushi, a family-owned, Thai restaurant concept in Christiana, will open its second location in early July at Fountains at Gateway in Murfreesboro, announced developer Scott Graby, president of Hearthstone Properties.
Serving authentic Thai and sushi to a dedicated customer base in Christiana for five years, Love Thai Sushi will also offer its Fountains at Gateway customers a wide range of chef-created menu options, from homemade dumplings, eggrolls and other starters to soups, salads and an extensive list of Thai entrees and sushi rolls.
Owned and operated by husband-and-wife team Wetchayan (Puy) Darasawang and Phitsamay Vannavong, Love Thai Sushi’s new 2,312-square-foot retail space at Fountains at Gateway faces Medical Center Parkway, just inside the entrance to Fountains. Interiors were designed by Paradym Studio to have a light and airy Asian feel, with garage doors that open to create a magical evening atmosphere on the patios and string lights overhead.
Customers can place carryout orders on Love Thai Sushi’s online ordering system. When dining at the restaurant, guests have the option of ordering online or from their server.
With decades of experience, Chef Puy and a fellow chef from Thailand develop the menu and prepare the array of dishes. Mrs. Vannavong runs the business.
“Our motto is Good Friend, Good Food and Good Life,” said Mrs. Vannavong. “Puy opened his first business in Thailand. In 2015, we came to the United States with a dream to create a small family business here. Our dream came true when we opened Love Thai Sushi in Christiana and had our first child. Our son, Dragon, is now four years old, and in early July, our dream continues as we open our second restaurant and serve more friends and customers.”
Graby said he and his family had heard great things about Love Thai Sushi’s restaurant in Christiana, but he wasn’t particularly fond of Thai food and steered clear of Sushi. “I sent our staff to try out the food for me to make sure it was as good as we’d heard. They came back raving about the food and brought me samples, which were actually amazing. Even the vegetable roll. I’ve since become a fan and am excited to introduce Love Thai Sushi to Fountains and Murfreesboro.”
