Remodeling work and menu development are coming along for the new Asian restaurant that’s going into the former Taco Town Buffet space on 41st Street.
The new restaurant will be called Pad Thai and will specialize in Thai food and the Vietnamese noodle soup known as pho, said Terry Teng, who is partnering with Paul Chan of Fuji Sushi & Hibachi on the venture. In addition to the restaurant’s namesake, other Thai dishes will include curries and soups, Teng said.
“We hope to open in October,” he said. “We’re all excited.”
Pad Thai, which will seat 50 to 60 customers, will be open for lunch and dinner daily.
Teng moved to Sioux Falls a couple of months ago from Mitchell, where he worked in a Chinese restaurant. He immigrated to the U.S. from China about 20 years ago.
“My partner knows how to do Thai and Vietnamese,” said Teng, who will manage the restaurant at 2700 W. 41st St.
Teng joins his brother in offering Asian cuisine in Sioux Falls. Leon Teng started Ramen Fuji almost two years ago.
