Member Spotlight: Thai Palace

This is a northern Arizona member spotlight for Thai Palace in Cottonwood & Sedona ThaiPalace3Looking to change up your date night this week? Have you always loved Thai food but you haven't found that special spot that has it just right? Or maybe you have never tried Thai food, and you're looking for a new experience for your taste buds? If you have plans to be in the Verde Valley, you're in luck! Thai Palace has some of the region's most delicious and most authentic dishes!

With two locations, one in Uptown Sedona and one in Old Town Cottonwood, Thai Palace is a Verde Valley favorite. Opened first in Staff ThaiPSedona in 2007 by owners Dena Smith,  Angelica "Bo" Krathinthong, and Darlene Kyurn, they have always taken pride in offering a "taste of excellence" in every dish. Chef Bo has been developing her thai cooking skills for 11 years in the Verde Valley. Long before that she became interested in cooking from her grandmother in Thailand, this is where she learned the authentic art of Thai cooking and some old family secret recipes. Finally, after about eight years of working for other Thai restaurants she opened her own restaurant in Cottonwood. Dena, with her many years of serving, bartending, and management experience runs the front of the house in both locations. Darlene focuses her efforts on making the business run. It's a great family effort and their hard work pays off!
