About Us

river thai main front 250hThe River Thai opened 20th November 2003 after Michael McMahon and his Thai wife Aunchalida found after much searching in both Echuca & Moama the current location in Meninya Street. "With a wide frontage and adequate parking and the perfect size large interior it seemed like a dream come true to both of us" Aunchalida mentiones.

Moving from Sydney and then Melbourne and finally closer to Michael's family who reside in Moama, Michael and Auchalida initially thought they were going to open a "Noodle Hut", but lucky for all of us, they changed their mind.....
The River Thai was born!

The Restaurant employs Thai Cooks, Aunchalida's brother Sasja is the main Chef (employed since 2009) with Michael out the front as host and Aunchalida, the kitchen powerhouse - helping to pull it all together!

"I get a kick out of making an evening for our guests as fun as possible, in a professional and friendly manner..... ensuring everything flows and runs smoothly" Michael beams with his infectious smile.

Michael and Aunchalida pride themselves on providing a relaxed atmosphere with a Rural Thai interior fitout and a high quality kitchen - all this combined with Authentic fresh ingredients (sourced locally where possible) produce the best "Central Thai"food possible.

Disable toilet access, easy off street parking, and vegetarian and gluten-free menus (dine-in) are just a few of the extra services offered.
