Following a seemingly endless string of successful endeavours celebrating Northern Thai cuisine and filming two seasons of the Food Network Canada series Wall of Chefs, acclaimed chef Nuit Regular has just opened the doors to her highly-anticipated second PAI restaurant in Uptown Toronto.
In addition to a selection of signature PAI classics on offer such as the khao soi, the pad gra pow, and the ever-popular pad Thai, chef Regular also plans use PAI Uptown as the launch point for a number of new menu items, including a pad see ew, a khao pad baan nok, and a newly-developed vegan menu.
“Our goal with [the new location] is to continue to serve the favourite dishes that everyone has come to know and love at our flagship location while making it accessible to even more of Toronto,” said Regular in a press release. “The new space is fun, inviting and a place where guests will feel like they have been transported to Thailand every time they visit.”
Although her latest venture is currently only offering takeout and delivery, when the restaurant does open for dine-in services, guests can look forward to a spacious and laid back atmosphere equipped with two private dining rooms, and multiple “dining coves” that can seat groups of four to 30. The restaurant has also incorporated a stage into its design to showcase live local entertainment once performers are already to resume their work indoors.
PAI Uptown is open from noon to 9:30 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and from from 4 to 9:30 p.m. on Sundays.
