What's up at King of Thai Noodles? [San Francisco]

soupçon Jan 15, 2014 10:08 AM

The Richmond SF Blog reports that the two King of Thai Noodles shops on Clement street have covered up the "King of" on their signage and are now just "Thai Noodles." The blog speculates that it was pressure from the North Beach KIng of Thai Noodles.

However, digging into Corporation Wiki reveals that the corporations that own North Beach and Clement KOTNs are headed by the same person, Saranya Chaichacha.

It's possible the Clement St. operations have been sold, I suppose.

Has anyone noted changes at the other KOTN locations around town?

      Actually I misspelled it. It's Chaichana. But KIng of Thai Noodles in North Beach started out as King Cha Cha.Thai just to confuse me. King Cha Cha moved to San Bruno as the North Beach place was being redone and renamed.. Clear enough?

      The King of Thai Noodles in Alameda also changed to "Thai Noodle House of Alameda" quite a while ago. The last time I was there the quality seemed to have gone down, too.

        Perhaps they are simply acknowledging that they are no longer the kings, then. Such honesty!
