DEARBORN, Mich. (WXYZ) — If you don’t feel like cooking and want to feed your family for days, a Thai restaurant in Dearborn is offering catering style carry-out.

Bangkok 96 started offering takeout after being closed for weeks, just in time to spice up your meals.

“I’m sure everyone is sick of cooking at home, ordering the same stuff.

Steven Vang is the manager of Bangkok 96 on Telegraph, just south of Michigan Avenue in Dearborn.

He describes this family owned business as “hidden secret gems in Dearborn.”

When the COVID-19 pandemic shut down restaurants, only allowing carry out, the employees told Steven they wanted to stay closed just to be safe.

“Maybe we should stay home, you know, and see what happens with what’s going on.”

Steven says it was important to leave it up to the employees. For the most part, the restaurant was doing ok financially.

But now they are ready to work, opening this week for takeout.

“For many, many years the Thai steak has been the number one seller, on top of the Pad Thai,” he explained. “I’m like drooling right now just thinking about it.”

Not only are the offering their full menu, they are also selling catering size options.

This is great for those who don’t want to cook for days or leave the house to get more carry out. You get about 10 meals in like one full size tray.

“We are working on our updated website, have online ordering in-house and then they can do the traditional way as well, that we’ve been doing since 1996, call through the phone.”

Bangkok 96 is open Monday through Friday 11am to 8pm and Saturday 12pm to 8pm.
