Nara Thai Cuisine was founded in 2003 by owner Narawadee Srikarnchana (Yuki) and a group of female entrepreneurs with the aim to let diners experience Thai culture from authentic Thai cuisine. The restaurant name “Nara” comes from the Sanskrit language meaning “Thai woman”. Therefore, the logo of Nara was developed under the concept depicting a traditional female accessory worn by Thai women in the olden days, which is a bracelet clasped on one arm as an item of hi-class jewellery.
Nara opened in the basement of Erawan Bangkok in 2006 and was quickly acclaimed for its boat noodle and authentic Thai comfort dishes. Due to the great popularity of the restaurant, Nara opened its second branch in 2009 at Central World on the 7/F. Henceforth, Nara has become popular amongst locals and tourists for its authentic comfort Thai dishes.
In 2018, Nara opens its very first restaurant in Hong Kong, in order to continue its aim by bringing the most authentic Thai dining experience to the people of Hong Kong.
