Taokaenoi Restaurant and Franchise has won the exclusive management licence in Thailand for Hinoya Curry, a Japanese restaurant and championship award winner at the Kanda Kurry Grand Prix in 2013.
The company in February opened the first branch at The Market Bangkok on Ratchadamri Road in the Pratunam area, the first branch outside Japan. The restaurant distinguishes itself through authentic, flavourful curry with almost 30 kinds of toppings, while also serving various special menus for Thai foodies.
“To continue our ‘food innovation’ concept, the company has been awarded the exclusive right for the Hinoya Curry franchise in Thailand,” said Itthipat Peeradechapan, CEO of Taokaenoi Restaurant & Franchise Co Ltd, an operator of “Taokaenoi Land”.
“The brand stands out through the concept of ‘filled to the brim with curry sauce’. The special recipe spans three generations under the slogan, ‘Champion of curry rice’.”
Hinoya Curry is a famous Japanese Curry Rice Restaurant originating in Yushima, Tokyo in 2011. Although the restaurant was not at a busy location, Hinoya Curry boasted excellent sales performance and always had long queues of customers. From that first small restaurant, it has grown rapidly, thanks to the power of word of mouth.
