Thai table is one of two Thai restaurants owned by restaurateur Suwapat Whitted. She first opened Thai Kitchen, a successful restaurant in Centerville. She decided to expand and opened her second restaurant, Thai Table in a more residential neighborhood. The floor space is also much larger than the previous restaurant, providing a calmer, open space giving customers room to relax. The extra room also allows for social distancing while at the same time accommodating more customers. The restaurant serves authentic Thai cuisine and other Asian dishes such as sushi.
The restaurant’s interior is based on nature themes from Thailand, aiming to provide a serene, tranquil setting like a Thai village with hardwood floors, taupe colored walls and natural stone tiles. The walls also feature large murals reflecting Thai cultural and natural beauty such as Asian elephants and large Buddha statues. There are also large, vertical windows that let in plenty of natural sunlight and tables are decorated with tropical flower arrangements native to Thailand such as lilies and orchids in elegant vases. Tropical foliage, representative of Thai jungles, is also used throughout the restaurant on the wall and in potted plants. There is also a widescreen television in the dining area for the guests' pleasure.
In keeping with the natural theme, the owner chose wood furniture with chairs in dark brown finish, reclaimed style plain back booths and reclaimed looking laminate table tops. For chairs she chose the designer series Logan vertical slat chair in a tasteful mahogany wood finish tha blended in with the motif. The chairs came in padded vinyl seats upholstered in brown vinyl to match the walls and the other seating. The vertical slat chairs also give the restaurant an upscale look. The wood chairs help give the restaurant a classy look and shows that it strives to provide guests with quality, comfortable seating.
To go with the chairs and booths, reclaimed look laminate table tops were used which matched the other furniture and contributed to a more authentic Thai look. The table tops have a slightly distressed look with remade planked oak that makes the tables fit in perfectly. They also enhance the decor and add to the relaxing, casual vibe of the restaurant. The tables are popular for their versatility and their ability to blend in with many types of interior design whether it's modern or traditional. The tables came with cast iron table bases in a black, powder coat finish which provides a strong, durable pedestal for the tables with a refined look. .
Commercial grade dining booths were also ordered and upholstered in brown vinyl and came in as wall benches, l-shaped and double booths. The restaurant booths came with boxed seat frames in reclaimed look that matches the tables and the hardwood floors. The remade oak plank look has a slightly sun weathered appearance that helps the booths and tables look like they fit in seamlessly with the natural surroundings as if guests were dining in a Thai village. The custom made booths were tailored to match the owner’s specifications and blend in with the overall look and feel of the restaurant. The booths can be custom made in any shape, length or height and upholstered in just about any material.
