Anyone who lives in the catchment areas of Ballsbridge, Rathgar and Park West will no doubt have heard of Kanum Thai. This family-run business spearheaded by Marc Fitzharris has built a fantastic reputation of delivering restaurant quality Thai food at takeaway prices. We managed to steal five minutes with Marc to find out a little more about his stores….
As the proprietor of Kanum Thai, can you tell us in your own words a little more about the philosophy behind the concept?
“It’s authentic Thai food cooked by experienced Thai chefs, using fresh ingredients and sold at a price point our customers are willing to pay. We’ve been running it now for 8 years”.
What is the best-selling item on your Marvin menu?
“Marvin special meal for 1”
We are always looking for quirky or funny stories that happen in takeaways – would you have any you could share?
“One of our staff members (I won’t give names!!) was serving a customer who was dairy/lactose intolerant, so the customer ordered a Green Coconut milk curry. The staff member asked me then if there was dairy in coconut milk!!”
As you know Marc, we aim to always give more at Marvin, so do you guys have any exclusives currently running you could tell our readers about?
“All our deals are EXCLUSIVE to Marvin!”
Well, we can’t argue with that! If you’re mad for a bit of spice in your life, then we would highly recommend you give Kanum Thai a try!
