Thai Mama is a Thai restaurant that recently opened in Maryland Heights, MO, with high online reviews.

MARYLAND HEIGHTS, MO (LoveAsianFood) Thai Mama opened in March 2024 and, in its first month of operation, has locked in almost 100 5-star Google reviews.  Based on our experience, this is unprecedented and deserves attention to see what they are doing to earn these ratings.

The owner is Sasimonthon Ongartsutthikul, who also owns the Thai Kitchen chain with 5 locations spread across the St. Louis Metropolitan region.  The locations are in the following neighborhoods:

  1. Florissant, MO
  2. Maryland Heights, MO (this location operates as Thai Mama)
  3. O’Fallon, MO
  4. St. Charles, MO
  5. St. Louis, MO
  6. Wentzville, MO

There is a Thai Kitchen location in Maryland Heights, MO, which is not affiliated with the Ongartsutthikul chain.  She did start that business in 1999 but sold it to her sister, who then sold it later to the existing owner.

Why is Thai Mama ratings this high?

We think they focus on the quality of food and service.  Ongartsutthikul trains each server to provide the service she has successfully enforced upon her staff for several years.

We believe lousy food with superior service will save a restaurant, but you are destined to fail with lousy food and bad service.  Ideally, good food and good service and the owner will be secure.
