“The concept has spread thanks to word of mouth from customers”owner Titiporn Jutimanon told the AFP, adding that the images of the peculiar restaurant quickly began to be a trend on social networks.
“You have to fight your way through the floodwaters while holding the customers’ food,” he said, adding that staff also have to clean up the mud at the end of the day.
Bangkok restaurants have seen a back and forth of restrictions this year as the third wave of deadly coronavirus infections took hold. “If I have to close the restaurant again, I’m sure I wouldn’t survive.”said the owner.
