WHAT IS NOK NOK?
Perhaps you paused to wonder what NOK NOK means? In choosing the name, we were inspired by the restaurant’s archway facade, where on either side of the main entranceway you can see figures of birds on the columns. In Thai, nok means bird. These sculptures originate from the pre-WWII period, as does the whole building, which was one of the few in this area to survive the bombing. Why the owners of that time positioned birds to guard either side of the entranceway, remains a mystery.
