Looking for authentic Thai cuisine served in a gorgeous space by an ultra-friendly staff? Pawit’s is the place. Since the affable Ponpawit Numnuan opened his namesake Thai restaurant in Holladay, the place has been teeming with a loyal clientele, who come back for generous servings of classic satays, Thai curries, salads, stir-fries and house specialties like honey ginger duck, spicy tofu and the Thaistyle omelet called kai jeaw. Some of the proceeds from Pawit’s Royale Thai Cuisine help support schoolchildren in Numnuan’s northern Thailand home village. Add reasonable wine and beer prices to all that good food and good karma, and you can understand why Pawit’s is a favorite of so many.
