The wait is over.

Kao Gang, a Thai, sushi and noodle restaurant in Palm Beach Gardens, opened for business last Saturday at 2626 PGA Blvd. The restaurant serves authentic Thai dishes created by master chefs Tutu Sarjai and Noopy Arrerak. It’s a sister to Malakor Thai in West Palm Beach’s Northwood neighborhood.

Creator Billy Manthy, an artist, showcases his works there, too. A  video he shared to the restaurant’s Facebook page shows him putting finishing touches of an elaborate leaf design on the doors of the men’s room. It’s in the style of a bodhi tree, which is revered in Buddhism. The page also shows Kao Gang being blessed by Buddhist monks.

The menu includes tom yum seafood noodle soup, Thai red barbecue pork with white egg noodle soup and whole hog snapper pad cha. Kao Gang also has vegan dishes. A daily happy hour from 3 to 6 p.m. features $5 rolls, $3 beers and $3 hot sake.
