LEON to serve up Thai offerings in new fast food pop-up

It has partnered with Aylmer Aaharn to launch the first location of Tuk Shop.

A joint venture with Bangkok-based food group Aylmer Aaharn, the restaurant will debut this spring in an existing LEON on Shaftesbury Avenue in London’s Soho.

Working with a team of chefs from Bangkok, LEON has developed every dish on the Tuk Shop menu to combine Thai food with fast food. Tuk Shop will deliver a host of classics including curries, noodles, rice dishes and salads, plus some dishes that will be newer to UK guests.

LEON co-founder John Vincent said, “Over the last fifteen years I have been fortunate enough to experience the culture and flavours of Thailand first-hand. And fortunate too to meet and learn from David Thompson (founder at Aylmer Aaharn), whose chefs have worked hard to make this happen. I hope that in the long-run Tuk Shop will allow everyone in the UK to experience the joy of this food. In the mean-time you will have to come to Shaftesbury Avenue. Grab a spoon and tuk in.”
