“The first thing we like our guests to feel is the friendly, welcoming atmosphere,” says owner Laurenzo Moerman. “Friendliness matched by authentic Thai cuisine,” adds his wife Kanteeya. She is the ‘Mama’ running the kitchen, although the name Mama Thai is in honour of her mother, who taught her the finesses of Thai cooking. Laurenzo and Kanteeya have been running Mama Thai for four years now, serving authentic Thai cooking from central Thailand, where culinary traditions are strongest. They offer a genuine Thai eating experience, encouraging customers to order a selection of dishes to share and combine.
