Eed Banchanurat Landon, the Chief Chef at Thai by Thai, has been cooking traditional Thai dishes for as long as she can remember. Eed continued to develop her passion for cooking while she studied for her MBA in Illinois, and it was here she met her husband Matt, who was studying Thai and SE Asian Studies. They moved together to Bangkok for a few years, where Eed worked at IBM Thailand, before returning to the US with their young son.
Eed and Matt have always tried to incorporate innovative and healthy concepts into their restaurants, such as using canola oil from the time they first opened their doors, adding a gluten-free menu, and now using cane sugar-based soft drinks. They are thrilled to be able to share their love of Thai cuisine with more people as Thai by Thai continues to grow and thrive.
