Leon to launch first Thai fast food restaurant
The restaurant will debut this spring in an existing Leon in Shaftesbury Avenue in London’s Soho.
Working with a team of chefs from Bangkok, Leon has developed every dish on the Tuk Shop menu to combine a love of Thai food with its love of fast food.
True to Thai cuisine, Tuk Shop will deliver a host of classics including aromatic curries, noodles, rice dishes and salads, plus some dishes that will be newer to UK guests.
Tuk Shop marries Leon’s mission to make it easier for everyone to eat well, and Aylmer Aaharn’s commitment to share true Thai cuisine and culture.
Leon co-founder John Vincent said: “Over the past 15 years I have been fortunate enough to experience the culture and flavours of Thailand first-hand.
And fortunate too to meet and learn from David Thompson (founder of Aylmer Aaharn), whose chefs have worked hard to make this happen.
I hope in the long run Tuk Shop will allow everyone in the UK to experience the joy of this food. In the meantime you will have to come to Shaftesbury Avenue – grab a spoon and ‘tuk’ in.”
