Thanks to a global pandemic that shut down much of indoor dining for a time, new restaurants in town were hard to come by this past year. Not to mention, some popular dining hubs, such as the Palm Garden, closed their doors for good during 2020.
The silver lining? Another restaurant has moved into the friendly yellow building on Sixth Avenue. Palm Garden Thai Cuisine opened its doors in late March, bringing all-new flavors while keeping part of the name Aberdonians have grown to love. Owner Saw Jack is excited to be the first person to open a Thai restaurant in town.
“We’ve been pretty busy so far,” he said. “There are a lot of people that like Thai food in Aberdeen.”
Though the first part of the restaurant’s name might ring a bell, the cuisine served is completely unique. The whole menu consists of authentic Thai food straight from Jack’s Thai heritage, including pad thai, curry, spring rolls, and various flavors of mochi for dessert.
Dine-in is now available for restaurant go-ers, along with an option to order online if takeout is more your jam. Jack said he’s happy to be bringing Thai food to Aberdeen and the surrounding area, and given the buzz about the new restaurant, it seems Aberdonians would agree a Thai restaurant is just what we ordered after the past year. // – Kaylyn Deiter
