Bangkok Lounge Group, owner of fine Thai dining restaurants in Shefford and Harpenden, has seen its weekly covers exceed 600.
Bangkok Lounge Group has grown rapidly since its launch in 2003, with both restaurants establishing a large and loyal clientele. The 66-seat Bangkok Lounge Shefford, for example has increased covers by 120 to 500 per week – a 417 per cent growth rate. As a result, the restaurant has expanded its lounge and cocktail area to further enhance the customer experience.
Customers at the 40-seat Bangkok Lounge Harpenden meanwhile, enjoy an intimate dining experience amid its authentic and traditional Thai décor.
Many Bangkok Lounge customers are regulars, who, on average, dine at one of the two restaurants 12 times a year. Among them is Mrs lmmantle who, writing on TripAdvisor, said: “Taking my mum here has become a bit of a birthday tradition. We both love Thai food and, having lived and worked in New York and London, have been to our fair share of fabulous restaurants. For us, the Bangkok Lounge is definitely up there with some of the best. The food is fresh and light with some great flavours.”
Also writing on TripAdvisor was Colin B, who said: “The food here is superb with amazing presentation… the service was amazing too. Friendly and efficient.”
Bangkok Lounge, which is also recommended by Metro Online, is launching a new website and an online take-away and reservations service through www.chefonline.co.uk soon.
Motin Miah, owner and general manager at Bangkok Lounge Group, said: “It’s been great to see both our restaurants become so popular within their respective communities. We’re constantly improving fine Thai dining for our customers with exquisite dishes made from the best quality ingredients, unrivalled customer service and an authentic dining ambience. And with our new website and Chef Online listing, we’re also making it easier for people to plan their Bangkok Lounge experience ahead.”
