Any of you who frequent Thai House Express on Larkin will recognize that back around the beginning of 2011, the interior decor changed significantly and there were all new faces (at least in the front of the house). Well it seems that back in January of 2011, there was a change of ownership:
Does anyone know the extent of this change? Are the new owners in the same family? If not, where did the old owners go? I know a recent article about the opening of House 530 by the son of the Thai House Express owners, Paul Meeriyagerd, mentioned nothing about the original family being anything other than the current owners of Thai House Express. I found a brochure about THE advertising in SF Chronicle interviewing Pro-Phol Meeriyagerd as the owner of THE. I'm aware that the original owners/operators of THE are/were Krittiya and Suraphol Meeriyagerd. Maybe it was just a handoff to siblings or progeny?
I haven't noticed any change in food quality, although maybe others can weigh in.
