Situated in downtown Oxford, this restaurant redefines trendy, and sets the bar for incredibly tasty authentic Thai “street food”.

If you have visited Thailand, ¬†you will recognize the same feeling of fun that you found there – the Thais call it “sanuk”!

Though, at the same time, the world-famous Thai hospitality and sincere attention to the well-being of their guests are apparent in the service at Thaikhun. It is actually a very difficult balance to achieve: being fun yet at the same time respectful – ask any trainer in the hospitality industry!

Yet for Thais, this quality is simply part of the culture.

As is extremely delicious food!

In fact, it was from the hands of the Thaikhun bartender that I tasted the most excellent cocktail ever, in my life! And I do not say that lightly.

Here is a close-up shot – the Thaikhun!!!

Taste it to believe it!

But dig the dupe interior decor, including long-tailed speed boats and a real Tuk-tuk!
