Looking for authentic Thai cuisine served up 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 teaming with a loyal clientele. They come back for generous servings of classic satays, Thai curries, salads, stir-fries and house specialties like boneless duck with red curry, salmon topped with Thai salad, stir-fried eggplant and the delectable Thai-style omelet called kai jeaw. Some of the proceeds from Pawit’s Royale Thai Cuisine help support 200 schoolchildren in a small elementary school in his home village in northern Thailand. Add very 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 Thai-food-loving Salt Lakers.
