Itsy’s co-owner Nandnapit Pho-loy says Preston is a great way to share their authentic cuisine with locals.

“We saw the opportunity to open the restaurant for the students and the local restaurant and because there isn’t an authentic Thai restaurant like this around here,” Nandnapit said.

“There are plenty of take out options, but we believe our food is authentic in Thailand – we have had experience running a Thai restaurant for over 15 years.

“We eat a lot of food, noodle soup, noodle curry and even crispy noodles with Thai sauce.”

“We want to offer tasty food, friendly service and a funky atmosphere when people come here.

“We’re excited to open up and bring people in – it will be different from other Thai restaurants because we use a lot of our own recipes that we’ve created over the years.”
