Chaophraya, Unit HF5, High Friars Greys' Quarter, Intu Eldon Square, Newcastle, NE1 7AP.
Join us at the end of January for the first member event of the year with Iain Leigh, MD of Thai Leisure Group, responsible for both Thaikhun and Chaophraya restaurant chains.
Operating currently out of 18 sites, with the first restaurant opening in 2004, ambitious plans remain afoot to cement their reputation as the leading Thai restaurant operator within the UK bringing a recognisable Thai brand across our cities and high-streets.
As a family friend of Kim Kaewkraikhot, the initial founder of the first Chaophraya restaurant, Ian was asked to join the team to help the business grow after 11 years as MD of Bergander Ltd. Specialising in performance improvement, managing talent and organisational development, Ian worked alongside many professional sports clubs and teams across the UK, including Chelsea football team, and has brought a wealth of operational experience to Thai Leisure Group.
Ditch the January detox and join us at Chaophraya for a tale of culture, growth and ambition alongside sampling what the restaurant has to offer.
