The retail space where a well-known Sunnyside Thai restaurant is located is up for rent.
Dee Thai, which has been located at 46-17 Queens Boulevard since 2008, has a giant ‘for rent’ sign in the store window.
The restaurant has been managed by Kanruthai Makmuang, known by the name Oh, who has participated in events such as Taste of Sunnyside over the years.
Several Thai restaurants have come to the area since Dee Thai opened. They include Vera, previously known as Yum Yum at 43-01 Queens Blvd., Thai Diva Cuisine on 46th Street, and Zen Yai Pho, formerly called Blu Orchard, at 45-04 Queens Blvd.
Dee Thai is best known for its Bangkok street food and southern Thai cuisine.
