Quality Thai Food – About

Thai food has always been a passion. “Thai Chef” was founded in 1999 by Natttachai Changrattanachaichok (known more commonly as Chang).

It began humbly enough in Napier as a weekend food business – ran out of a caravan. Regularly attending the local markets, Chang started to gather a loyal following.

Chang decided to take this success a step further into full-time work. Chang’s caravan took up regular residence serving delicious Thai food outside his house on Kennedy Road in 2000.
