Our motto is a Family that cooks together stays together. At Family Thais Asian Bistro, we are all family and we are all chefs. Our chef backgrounds stem from food that Grandma taught us in a small Thai village, a hotel in Pattaya, Thailand, a culinary academy in Bangkok, Thailand and classic French training. Our experiences and training may vary, but our passion and love for food are the same, and we hope that it shows when you visit us at Family Thais Asian Bistro.
Family Thais Asian Bistro is a fast, casual Thai restaurant in the historic West End of downtown Dallas. Our menu is a whole-hearted family effort of passionately executed Thai comfort food and bistro fare. We offer a modest beer and wine menu, and while Thai food is the star of the show, we also offer a variety of bistro fare such as handmade-to-order crepes, shakes, bubble waffles, pastries, Boba tea and a full espresso menu.
Family Thais Asian Bistro is owned and operated by Tony and Jab Street and sons. Jab Street and her cousin Ka Yamsopee are the chefs of Family Thais, and Tony makes sure that each dish has just the right amount of Thai authenticity to please every Thai food-lover’s palate. For 38 years Tony has been working as a chef in France, Mexico, England and Texas and currently owns three successful restaurants including the 23-year-old West End icon Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse. Mrs. Street was born in Pattaya, Thailand, where she first learned to cook from her Grandmother before she began her career in the service industry. But it was at Toy’s café, one of Dallas’ first Thai restaurants, where she honed her skills as a chef for 17 years. Ka Yamsopee is a very talented young chef who recently graduated from Sompong Culinary Academy in Bangkok. Other partners include Ka’s parents Rang and Krisdina Yamsopee and Arturo Lamas, who has been managing the kitchen and thrilling diners at the Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse for more than two decades.
We are all chefs and all are family. Our goal is to create a fun and vibrant atmosphere with warm, friendly and professional service. If we ever fall short, please let us know personally at firstname.lastname@example.org.
