Sen Thai moves to new Washington Avenue spot next week

January 11th 01:01pm, 2018



Sen Thai Asian Bistro is heading to new digs downtown. The restaurant, which has been located in the Shell Building at 1221 Locust St. since 2002, will move to 1000 Washington Ave., the space that most recently housed Prime 1000.

Manager Nuttamon Pongmanawut said this Saturday, Jan. 13, will be the last day of service at the Locust location.

“We have been thinking of moving for a long time,” she said. “We’ve been here for quite a while. We thought we’d move out of downtown, but we still love downtown.”

She said the new space’s location on the corner of a busy thoroughfare that was within walking distance of the previous location for longtime customers made it the perfect choice.

Pongmanawut said the move will take approximately two weeks, and the restaurant should reopen by the end of the month, depending on how the inspection process goes.

The space has been subdivided since the Prime 1000 days – the other side is now home to Caruso’s Deli. Pongmanawut said the new Sen Thai will feature 100 seats, roughly the same as the Locust location, and the menu will remain the same – for now. Eventually Pongmanawut said they will broaden the menu to include other Asian cuisines.

“We’re going to expand and add some items,” she said. “The intention of the owners in the beginning was to be an Asian bistro, so we’re going to add more types of Asian food.”
