Thai Esane, formerly located on 12th Avenue South near The Gulch, will open Tuesday, September 17, 2019, on the ground floor of the Element Music Row building on Demonbreun. This authentic Thai restaurant has been a Nashville staple since 2014. The owner, Nina Sayasack, has a “follow her anywhere” reputation in town, best known for her family’s King Market, a popular Thai café in Antioch. Nashville Guru stopped by to take a look inside.
The new 3,500-square-foot location has an upscale feel with high ceilings, natural light, and captivating décor, including a six-foot tall golden Buddha from Thailand. Guests can grab a seat at the bar or dine with friends at one of their tables or booths.
When the weather is nice, there is a patio that can seat up to 40 guests, perfect for sipping a signature cocktail like the Thai Tonic or Bloody Esane.
Thai Esane is staying true to their authentic Southeastern Asian cuisine. Crowd favorite dishes are the papaya salad, Khao Soi noodle soup, and Malaysian noodles. Their extended bar menu will feature new and signature cocktails.
