Thai Terrace was founded by 4 friends that have great
passion cooking Thai cuisine, and fell in love with the Okanagan.
Kannika (May) Kamlapit moved to Vancouver in 2000, where she opened her own restaurant. She came to the Okanagan for a visit in 2002 and after that visit, she decided to move her family down to Kelowna. She has worked as a head cook and kitchen manager for 2 different Thai restaurants for the past 17 years. Now she has an opportunity to open a Thai restaurant in the heart of the Okanagan.
Atchara (Ess) & Atsawin (Luke) Sumpantarat moved to Kelowna in 2006 & 2003, respectively. Ess and Luke were the founders and owners at Thai Fusion restaurant in West Kelowna. They enjoyed bringing the great flavours of Thai food, using the local produce of the Okanagan to the West Kelowna community for 6 years. They are eager to get back doing what they love by bringing their passion and expertise to Kelowna.
Choncharee (Tik) Phangathunad moved to West Kelowna in 1998. As with all the other partners, Tik fell in love with the Okanagan. She has worked with different Thai restaurants over the years and also has experience working with the Okanagan vineyards. Tik’s passion for foood, and wine is the same for Thai Terrace.
