NORTHERN MICHIGAN BEAUTY BECKONS
Thai Orchid owner Thomas Vangyi thought Petoskey was a perfect place to open a new restaurant.
I liked this town and I traveled many times through here, he says. It had beautiful scenery, back like in Thailand in the mountains, and a lake.
The experienced restaurateur and married father of five has co-owned a Thai restaurant in Mt. Clemens with his brother-in-law for the last six years, but moved his family north in September.
We have another restaurant in Detroit in Mt. Clemens, says Vangyi. Our family, we do restaurants, and
we came here and we felt like we cant let this thing go, we have to put another restaurant here.
Ive worked in the restaurant business for a little over 10 years now, he continues. Its not new to us.
Tastefully decorated with pale lavender walls, multicolored tapestries under glass for tabletops and plenty of orchid pictures in homage to the restaurants name Thai Orchid Cuisine offers an extensive menu at reasonable prices.
