The meal, a delightful noodle based curry dish, is served on an artists palette, befitting the ‘gallery’ style décor, and provides the opportunity for guests to customise the dish to their own taste. Additionally, following significant interest from international diners, Just Khao Soy will begin franchising operations domestically and internationally from late 2010.
