    Thai places near you.

    Was just wondering how many thai places are around where you guys live. Probably alot of restaurants and take-aways. Here in Antwerp Belgium we have some thai owned pubs. So lots of guys going to LOS spend their times in there and offcourse most of the thai boys and girls that live around here. Last sunday night had some sort of barcrawl. Went to 4 different thai pubs around here. And if my memory is still good there are about 9 to 10 places just to go drinking.

    No bars , but lots of restaurants and a couple of small shops selling ingredients. The closest restaurant is about a minute walk from my house, right on the beach , great food , but a touch more expensive than LOS .....

    Quite a few restaurants, but more importantly at least 5 or 6 Thai massage joints around the Manchester area........

    hundreds of Thai joints in Sydney...King St Newtown had 30-40 Thai restaurants along it alone...there is a proper little Thai town down near Central/China Town as well but Thais have spread out into many areas of Sydney these days...many high streets would have Thai grocers on them

    thai town in sydney is great, population around 100k, also out at cabramatta there is a strong thai influence albeit a vietnamese area, thais are well represented with video shops grocery, hardware, fish mongers, butchers and of course restaurants.

    no bars but there are 3 thai restaurants in the town i live (victoria point, Brisbane). not bad considering i live in a small town in the suburbs. also there's around 3,000 thai's living in the Brisbane suburbs of sunnybank, Browns plains, and calamvale area's. so im sure there would be several bars and restaurants there.

    Have seen the invites in Antwerp. Try to make it overthere if my daughters birthday party on saterday doesn't end too late and the weather is fine. Couple years ago it was in Antwerp. Lots of people sunny weather and a nice vibe to it.

    i think you'd get the thai trade w/o a doubt
    but i don't know how appealing it would be to a broader customer base

    but i think just having yout thai missus working at the bar would bring the thai restaurant industry trade.

    the pub does really well with normal customers.in fact its a big hit with american tourists. its a really old and famous pub in one of the best locations in dublin,it is on one of the pub tourists maps.
    not sure his lady works there, but i know a lot of her friends use it as a starting point on there nights out. thai community in ireland is growing fast so nice for them to have a joint like this.
