Toronto's ever-popular downtown spot for khao soi and pad thai, is opening a second location, and it's going to be massive.
Pai on Duncan Street has announced that it's opening up a second restaurant in midtown Toronto later this year.
A new 12,000-square-foot Pai is slated to launch at 2355 Yonge St., just north of Yonge and Eglinton.
This new iteration will span two storeys, with private dining rooms, a separate takeout entrance, and a stage for future live music entertainment.
According to the restaurant, the decor will be similar to the original flagship, reflecting the "everyday hippie-style of the town of Pai in Northern Thailand."
A recent Instagram photo also hints at clusters of lanterns hanging from the ceilings.
The menu will be largely the same, so expect the usual pad gra prow and grabong. However, it being Yonge and Eg, the new Pai was also have a new wine program.
Chef Nuit has also been filming Season 2 of the Food Network's Wall of Chefs.
The original Pai was closed for over a month and a half during the initial stages of lockdown, though they've since reopened for pickup, delivery, and more recently, dine-in via reservations.
