Thai Restaurant Opens Across the Street from Kew Gardens Courthouse

Jan. 15, 2018 By Tara Law

An authentic Thai restaurant that serves an array of curry and noodle dishes opened across the street from the Kew Gardens Courthouse on Friday.

Ocha Thai Cuisine, located at 124-32A Queens Boulevard, serves classic Thai dishes such as pad Thai, noodle soups, fried rice and meat and vegetable dishes seasoned with curry.

The restaurant is owned and operated by Sinchai Sookjit, who grew up in Thailand and moved to the United States more than 20 years.

Sookjit previously owned a Thai restaurant in Los Angeles before moving to New York in 1999. He currently resides in Elmhurst.

Sookjit chose to open a Thai restaurant because he loves food and it is the cuisine he knows best.

“We’re Thai people, and [obviously] we’re experts on Thai food,” he said.

Ocha Thai is open daily from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. The restaurant seats 16 guests, and will deliver.

The restaurant does not have a liquor license.
