Move to business events for Mantra Thai

A Thai restaurant is celebrating a successful first year in business, with plans to recruit after making a £600,000 investment.

The family-run Mantra Thai Restaurant, which opened in December 2014 on Forth Banks, plans to increase its 30-strong workforce throughout 2016 to cater for its increasing popularity.

Mantra Thai owner Jeab Prapunwong also plans to introduce a bespoke event offering for the city’s business community, providing networking space for seminars and events with tailored food and drink menus to suit each occasion.

Jeab said: “We have had a successful first year and the ongoing regeneration of Newcastle’s Quayside has done much to bring customers over to this part of the city – even more so following the renovation works at the Stephenson Quarter and Central Station.

“We will also be developing our venue offer to provide an excellent environment for businesses looking for external settings – we can cater for anything from small, intimate get-togethers to events for 150 plus people.”
