Please Welcome Our Newest Member, Fon's Kitchen!

Authentic Thai food made with love in Belfast! The restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere, both indoor and outdoor seating, chop sticks and flower centerpieces, and a bar in the back.

Owner Sarunya "Fon" Rock comes from hospitality experience both in Bangkok and more recently in Camden. It was always her dream to open a restaurant. She has learned a lot about cooking from her mother, from experience and from other sources. “The more you cook, the more you get better and then it became my passion,” she said. For those who have never tried Thai food, she recommends dumplings or a chicken sauté.

Hours: Tue - Sat Lunch 11:30am - 3pm, Dinner 5pm - 8pm, 8:30pm on Saturdays
