“We provide Fresh Thai Street food using the best of Irish and Thai produce available”

Once Upon A Thai is a food truck serving fresh, authentic Thai food using Irish and Thai ingredient where possible. The Free Range pork and beef we use is from Jim Ryan’s farm in Ballinlough, Kells, Co. Meath.

We also work closely with a number of producers and food service companies that over the years of working in the hospitality industry I have established a great relationship with and they understand what I expect when I order produce from them. We are based in Trim, Co.Meath

Our Story

I have been working as a chef in professional kitchens in Ireland, England and Australia for the past 18 years. I first visited Thailand in 2003 and instantly fell in love with Thai food, people and their culture.

I then visited Thailand every year and in 2011 I met my future wife Auan who had worked in some of the best 5 stars Hotels in Thailand and is an amazing cook and shares my passion for Thai food.

We both noticed that we could not find anywhere to eat in Ireland that delivered the authentic Thai street food flavour and after doing a lot of research we decided to start a food truck that gave our customers genuinely authentic Thai Street food.


Dear Custumers

Our chicken wings back on the menu today

Dear valued customers

We will be in Trim on Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th from 4.30 -9.

After that we will be closed for 2 weeks and will be back on Friday 13th August.

Unfortunately our chicken wings will not be available to order today as it would be too hot in our van for our staff with the fryers on. Cold wings will be available which can be cooked at home in an oven, air fryer or a deep fat fryer. Portions of spring rolls will still be available. Apologies ...for any inconvenience.
