(August 12, 2021) It is perhaps the only Thai restaurant in an ice rink in the country, or elsewhere, in the world.
“It’s weird, I know,” said Bo Sasomsin, owner of Siam To Go.
It all started when Sasomsin was looking for a place to open a restaurant. Nantucket Ice was looking for someone to run their snack bar. The space was available and affordable.
Nine years ago, Seubsiri Thairatana opened the island’s second Thai restaurant, at the end of Old South Road, where the Dancing Pickle was located. She called it the Thai house.
It only converted to take-out at the start of the pandemic.
The sauces for his pad thai, noodles and curries, Thairatana said, are all freshly made every day.
The Thai House, 118 Old South Road, and Siam To Go, 10 Backus Lane, are open for take out for lunch and dinner.
