Abersoch’s Thai Restaurant Receives the Accolade “Best Oriental Restaurant in Wales”

The Coconut Kitchen Thai restaurant in Abersoch won the award of “Best Oriental Establishment” at Monday’s glitzy award dinner held at the Mercure Holland House Hotel in Cardiff.

A tremendous effort was made from the Welsh public, as thousands of nominations were received for the inaugural Food Awards Wales.

The awards aim to recognise the hard work and efforts of the Welsh food industry. Accolades include restaurants, takeaways, gastro pubs, hotel restaurants, cafes and bistros, as well as shine the spotlight on the wonderful local producers who supply their delicious ingredients.

The Coconut Kitchen had been shortlisted for their category and faced some stiff competition from top Japanese, Thai and Chinese restaurants in the Capital and throughout Wales.

Preechaya Phetprasert, head chef and co-owner of The Coconut Kitchen commented, “We are so pleased about this award! We started the restaurant 8 years ago and this award recognises hard work put in by us and our amazing team both in the kitchen cooking fresh Thai food and the front of house staff that give our customers such great service.”

Paul Withington co-owner and general manger also commented “We would like to also thank everyone that voted for us and all our fantastic customers that keep coming back and give us such great feedback on what we do, it really spurs us all on to carry on improving”

The black tie ceremony was hosted by Capital 1’s breakfast presenter, Polly James. As well as the Awards, the event will also helped raise funds for the official charity partner, Make A Wish Foundation UK granting magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions.

Yasmin Mahmood of event organisers Creative Oceanic commented “After the great success of the Food Awards England and Wales which were held in Manchester last year, it was apparent the Welsh food industry deserved a greater platform for recognition.

We had a fantastic response in nominations, for the inaugural Food Awards Wales and we are pleased to recognise those who provide and supply us with gastronomic delights.”
