Emporium Thai Cuisine is a Southern Thai Specialty Restaurant established in 2000, conveniently located near the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) in the beautiful neighborhood of Westwood. The restaurant was ranked as one of the Top 100 Best Thai Restaurants in the USA. Visit the Emporium and indulge and experience their delectable cuisine at affordable prices. They proudly offer an outstanding selection of delicious, authentic Thai dishes, prepared with fresh natural ingredients, exotic native spices, and fresh herbs for your dining pleasure.
Emporium Thai Cuisine is family owned and operated, they have been sharing the wonderful flavors of authentic Thai food with their customers for over 12 years. The owners say they just can’t help it, it’s in their blood. Their 85-year-old mom, Supis Sungkamee, bore 12 children in Southern Thailand, instilled in them a love for authentic Thai cooking at a young age. She certainly did something right because almost all of them are now in the U.S. with her, making names for themselves in the restaurant business.
Emporium Thai Cuisine’s Executive Chef, Gina Sungkamee, studied for four years at the Culinary University in Bangkok then went on to earn the aforementioned Best Thai Restaurant distinction and her brother, Chef Tui Sungkamee, at Jitlada On Sunset perfected a family recipe and has become well-known to spicy Thai-food lovers city-wide.
Just like their Mom and Dad did back in Thailand, Emporium Thai Cuisine uses only the finest ingredients bought locally. In the interest of supporting local growers they purchase their vegetables from the nearby farmers markets and shop for fresh seafood, meats, and produce almost every morning.
The Emporium Thai Cuisine is located in the heart of Westwood, one half block South of Wilshire Blvd. Dine in their recently remodeled restaurant designed by two-time Emmy winning interior designer Peter Gurski. Or order take-out (delivery or pick-up) to your office or home. They also offer an extensive catering service and work closely with their clients to create a memorable dining experience. Visit and discover the most fresh and authentic Thai cuisine in Westwood. And say hi to Mom while you’re there!
