My boyfriend and I just came back from a very pleasant dining experience at Satang Thai Bistro — a newly opened restaurant located at Åboulevard (i.e. boulevarde) where Frederiksberg meets Copenhagen.
‘Go and eat there’, is all I want to say.
People have different reasons for choosing one restaurant over the other. While some people get inspired through social media, others take cues from friends or simply keep a keen eye on what’s new and happening on the food scene.
We, apparently, fit into every category. This week we went to explore a new restaurant. The aptly named, Satang Thai Bistro.
At the first glance, we were impressed by the design which strikes a perfect balance of old and young, authentic and traditional, ingeniously put together in a beautifully coordinated fashion, making the restaurant a standout among the multitude of bland Thai eateries in Copenhagen.
Satang Thai Bistro is owned by Suppi and Niran, a thirty-something Thai-Danish couple who have worked in the hospitality industry since they were teenagers.
Niran, the husband, is in the kitchen, while Suppi, the wife, is on the floor and handles the business side of things. Together they aim to combine the accessibility of Thai food with the experience of fine dining, yet in an affordable package.
This classy dinning place has a wide range of customers, some of whom are familiar faces who have followed Niran and Suppi for years as they honed their skills in different restaurants. Some are Thai expats, some are chefs. And some are even staff of Michelin restaurants in Copenhagen.
This certainly bodes well for the level of cooking.
So don’t just take my word for it.
