About Us


…a destination for authentic Thai ambiance and exquisitely prepared dishes. This beautifully remodeled restaurant is as colorful as Thailand itself. Every piece of original artwork, the unique bar, handcrafted fountains, and hand-painted mirror illuminating the main dining room, was shipped directly from Thailand to San Luis Obispo. The elegant interior is befitting the king of Thailand.

Co-owner Teerapan “Tee-Tee” Teeratarkul has loved the restaurant business and grew up working with his family in their own restaurant in Pichit, Thailand, which was run by his mother, Taungpetch Teeratarkul. So it was no stretch to continue with their desire to serve authentic Thai dishes at Thai Palace in San Luis Obispo. Upon remodel, they hired Thai Palace’s current chef who cooked professionally in Bangkok for 20 years. Meanwhile, Tee-Tee and co-owner Judy Hengcharoen focused on the redesign of the interior décor. After much hard work to create this successful gem, a labor of love as they call it, Tee-Tee’s mother retired to fulfill her dream of becoming a Buddhist nun, leaving the restaurant in the capable hands of her family.

You can count on Thai Palace to always provide a delicious meal that’s reasonably priced. This is a place for families and we invite your family to come and be a part of ours.
