Our Story

Thaï Express is a new take on traditional Thaï Cuisine, and the global leading brand for fast casual Thaï dining.

We believe in providing variety, quality and authenticity at our modern food boutiques, adding some exotic (or adding spice) to your everyday! Headquartered in Canada, the first store opening over 10 years ago, now has grown to over 200 stores worldwide.

Famously fond for Pad Thaï , Uzma and Sachin realised there was void of authentic Thaï cuisine in London. They forged a bond and, united under their entrepreneurial spirit, decided to stir things up and bring the best Thai they had ever tasted to the UK palette. Their first Thaï Express opened in 2012 and there are now four locations across Greater London, with planned expansion in the Midlands.

Our Mission

We felt that the UK was stuck in a cold food to go rut. Just about every day, thousands of people eat the same sandwich from the same refrigerator from the same supermarket. We knew that there had to be a healthier alternative. Our ingredients are fresh, our preparation is fast and our packaging is fun and functional – making it ideal for those who have to eat while on the move.

Our purpose built, open-plan kitchen lets you see your food being made to order. So you can watch our expert wok chefs show their flair for cooking from the moment you order. We think that beats a cold refrigerator sandwich any day of the week!

We strive for excellence and take great pride in the food that we prepare. At Thaï Express we are committed to achieving superior customer satisfaction by providing a wide variety of affordable products in a trendy atmosphere with genuine and timely service.

Our vision of success is to always exceed expectations by offering a tasteful variety of authentic Thaï cuisine prepared and served by well-trained and motivated team members. The perfect ingredients for a memorable experience!
