South West-based restaurant group, Koh Thai Tapas, has signed on an undisclosed site in Bristol. The company has revealed that the venue is expected to launch this winter, hosting around 100 covers with an additional al fresco dining area.
Koh Thai Tapas opened their first restaurant in Boscombe, Dorset, in December 2009. An ambitious expansion programme has seen the group open further sites in Bournemouth, Southsea and Bath. The latest venture will bring the multi-award winning Thai sharing concept to its biggest city yet. Bristolians can expect fiery stir-fries, curries and salads served in a bespoke sharing style, paired with cocktails, international beers and fine wines. The eclectic fusion interior will incorporate Thai designs and a modern cocktail lounge atmosphere.
Koh Thai Tapas recently received national attention by winning the Best Medium Restaurant Employer in the Hospitality Awards 2013. To celebrate their new community, Koh has sponsored the 2013/14 season of the Old Bristolians Rugby Club, a Bristol institution since 1925. Koh CEO, Andrew Lennox, shared his excitement about the move:
“Bristol, and particularly the local area of Clifton, has been firmly set in our sights for the best part of three years and it is an amazing feeling to have acquired such a great property. We are looking forward to adding a totally unique dining experience to such a bustling restaurant scene.”
