Chandler-ites will be welcoming a new Asian restaurant to the dining scene as of Thursday, April 10 when Silk True Asian opens its doors for business. The restaurant will be located at 4995 S. Alma School Road in Chandler, inside the Promenade at Fulton Ranch.
Silk True Asian comes courtesy of owner Watchuree Gerding, a native to northeast Thailand. At the new restaurant she's focused on offering affordable, healthy Asian foods from Thailand, Vietnam and China.
Gerding, who moved to the States in 2010, says opening a restaurant has been a longtime dream and is excited to bring healthy Asian cuisine to the community.
Silk True Asian's menu will include dishes such as Vietnamese Pho; Pad Thai Noodles with stir-fried rice noodles, bean sprouts, egg, green onion and peanuts tossed Silk's own sweet and sour tamarind sauce; and Thai Curry made with curry paste, coconut milk, meat, seafood, vegetables and herbs.
