Support Khao Hom Thai Cuisine

Personal message

My name is Stephen and I'm a regular patron of Khao Hom Thai Cuisine, an authentic, family-run Thai restaurant. Khao Hom opened a little over a year ago in our neighbourhood and makes arguably the best Thai green curry in Cape Town!

Over many visits, I've gotten to know the owner, Mia, and her family. Mia is a kind, generous person who has provided complimentary food in the past and even shared some of her cooking secrets with me to try out at home. I decided to give her a call to find out how she's holding up during the Covid-19 lock down. The answer: "I'm really not in a good situation".

She said it meant a lot that I called her but she was really worried about paying the rent, her staff and supporting her kids. On top of everything, the restaurant had an attempted break-in right before the lock down, smashing the front window and adding extra costs.

Mia's business is the EXACT kind of business we need more of in this world, and we can't let it fail. South Africa is facing so many hardships, even before the coronavirus pandemic hit us. Now is the time to rally together to make sure every small business can survive.

SUPPORT NEEDED

Please help support Khao Hom during this difficult period. Mia says she is afraid to do things like this online, but "I have to try everything I can". She said her English wasn't good enough, so she asked her daughter to write this message:

"Khao Hom Thai Restaurant and Takeaway had been open for just pass a year and has been hit with this devastating pandemic. It has truly put us in difficult times where our staff such as chefs, waiters and part-time workers can not be paid.

We started off very new to the idea of running a business but through our passion for cooking and the Thai culture that we wanted to share, we opened up this family like restaurant."

"We truly appreciate each and everyone of our customer and through this fundraiser we only hope to raise enough money to be able to pay our staff who are now left without jobs and earnings to survive this time of Covid-19. We hope to be able to get back up on our feet after this pandemic has passed and be back to cooking for you."

The funds used will be to help Mia pay her staff salaries during the lock down, help her cover the rent and buy new stock when they reopen the shop. As Mia said, "My hope is just anything will help".

Funds will be paid directly into the beneficiary's bank account.

My name is Stephen, a resident of Cape Town and a regular patron of Khao Hom Thai cuisine, an authentic, family-run Thai restaurant. As a real lover of Thai food, I was delighted when Khao Hom opened nearby a little over a year ago in our neighbourhood. Even more delighted when I discovered it was a family-run, woman-owned business which makes arguably the best Thai green curry in Cape Town.

Please help support Khao Hom during this difficult period.
