Chef Suree Coates collects her Royal Thai Select Award

Chef Suree Coates collects her Royal Thai Select Award

This week saw a very special appointment for Shropshire Thai Chef Suree Coates.

Popular amongst the diners of the region, and beyond. In recent years receiving a string of accolades from Shropshire Curry Chef, to Thai Curry Chef of the Year, and National Guides including The Good Food Guide Restaurant of the Year. Chef Suree can now proudly display her International ‘Royal Seal of Approval’ from the Thai Royal Court as one of their ‘Thai Select’ venues. With only 14 in the UK and only 7 outside London, now including The King and Thai in Broseley.

‘Thai Select’ is a seal of approval granted by the Royal Thai Court in Thailand, following recommendations from officials, to Thai restaurants overseas that serve authentic Thai food.
Recognising ‘consistent dedication to traditional Thai methods in cuisine, service and high standards’. The objective is to increase the recognition of quality Thai restaurants as well as to encourage Thai restaurateurs and food producers to raise their quality while maintaining authenticity. Placing the King and Thai amongst the best Authentic Thai Restaurants in the World.

“I was so humbled to receive the award” comments Chef Suree Coates “I did n’t even know we were being considered. To be honoured by the Thai Royal household is the icing on the cake for my career. Being born in Thailand and remaining passionate about my homeland and its cultures, cuisine and foods is second nature to me, so to be recognised in such a way, really is special.”

November celebrations. To celebrate their Royal seal, Chef Suree and team have put on a series of authentic Thai specials for the incredible price of two courses for just £15, served Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.
