Thai Mama in Maryland Heights to Open Soon

Thai Mama in Maryland Heights to Open Soon

Thai Mama in Maryland Heights, Missouri, will open in March 2024.  The opening date will be announced soon.

MARYLAND HEIGHTS, MO (STL.News) In a long-awaited opening, Thai Mama is excited to announce that the electrical and plumbing work has been completed today.  Inspecting the electrical and plumbing is the next step to wrap up the remodeling, which has taken much longer than anticipated.

Cleaning the facility and stocking it with food items, etc., will be completed over the next few days.   Then, the health department will perform its final inspection.   The opening day could be as early as the end of next week.

A significant amount of money was spent on authentic Thai decorations that are being shipped and should arrive before April 1.

Thai Mama is a new brand for the owner, but the menu items and service are not new to the community.  The owner, Sasimonthon Ongartsutthikul, owns the popular Thai Kitchen family-owned chain with locations in the following communities:

The reason for the new location is that there is an existing Thai Kitchen in Maryland Heights, MO.  Ongartsutthikul opened that location in 1999 but sold it several years ago.  She wants to return to the community but does not want to confuse the public with two Thai Kitchen locations.  Therefore, she created the new brand name of Thai Mama.

Opening Update as of March 1, 2024:

As of yesterday, February 29, 2024, the electrician and plumbing contractors had completed their work.  Today, Friday, March 1, 2024, the fire suppression company will conduct its test, and then we should complete most of their inspections next week.

Opening Update as of March 7, 2024:

Today, they passed the Fire Compression System inspection.  This week, we failed the Plumbing, Electrical, and Health Inspections.  The failures were all related to small items that the contractors are in the middle of fixing now.  We should be able to reinspect next week and receive Passing scores.

Opening Update as of March 11, 2024:

The contractors have corrected all reasons for failing inspections.  Reinspections are scheduled for this week, which we expect to pass.

They are on target to open in March, but it may be sooner.
