Thai Sapa Story

  • Thai Sapa best Asian food in Zion, Springdale & southern Utah

    2003 - The Idea

    Thai Sapa was born out of Chef Tung’s passion for cooking in her native home of Vietnam, & her husband Dennis’ love of both the town of Sapa & the world-famous Thai coconut dish, Tom Khaa Gai.  An opportunity opened up upon their arrival to Springdale, Utah & Zion National Park in the winter of 2003 when the owners of the Watchman Cafe, which closed for the evenings, offered them a nightly venue for their Thai Sapa restaurant concept.  The overwhelming success from Thai Sapa’s weekends-only start in March led to being open seven nights a week by October.

    The popularity of Thai Sapa came from the best Asian food inspired from the Sapa tribe & great restaurant service to guests.

    2011 - Interior & Exterior Remodel

    In the Spring we were able to bring our Thai Sapa restaurant to its original starting location, the old Watchman Cafe building in Zion. Thai Sapa underwent a complete interior & exterior makeover. The newly updated look accentuates the amazing & unique Asian & Thai food. We made the new & improved Thai Sapa in Springdale, Utah the best restaurant & home for us.

    2004 - Thai Sapa Opens in Springdale, Utah

    The Watchman building changed hands & Thai Sapa subsequently moved to a location in the Big Screen Theater Complex down the street in Springdale, Utah, where we worked hard to build an excellent reputation for Thai Sapa in Zion National Park with a menu full of the best Asian and Thai food, in spite of the marginal location.

    1999 - The Story Began

    The name ‘Sapa’ represents the hill tribe community that lives at 5,000 ft. in Vietnam 30 miles from the Chinese border in the extreme North of Vietnam. Originally Thai Sapa would open as Franksapas’, a pan-Asian cafe restaurant serving Thai & Asian food within the courtyard of our planned Guest House on the edge of Sapa. However, plans changed leading up to our immigration to America!
