About So Thai Restaurant:
The Sookthis family opened their first restaurant, Siam Wok in Warren MI, in 1987. The restaurant was a small 800 sq. ft. carry-out restaurant. Since then, they have opened multiple restaurants in Warren, Troy, and Birmingham. As the Detroit area approaches a new revival, the Sookthis family felt the need to re-package and re-market a new restaurant to compete in this modern economy. So Thai Restaurant services include dine-in, carry-out, delivery and online ordering. They offer traditional Thai dishes that have never been introduced to the Metro-Detroit market as well as Sushi and other popular Thai dishes. So Thai Restaurant is located on Elizabeth Lake Road next to the Rite Aid at the southwestern corner of the M-59 and Elizabeth Lake Road intersection. Learn more at www.eatsothai.com.
