San Diego Thai Food Destination Supanee House Of Thai Under New Ownership

January 7, 2022

One of San Diego's most prominent destinations for Thai cuisine, Supanee House of Thai in Point Loma is now under new ownership. 

Supannee House of Thai was opened in 2011 within a quaint shopping plaza adjacent to Point Loma's Shelter Island. Founder Supannee House (yes, that is her real name) grew up in Bangkok, Thailand with nine brothers and sisters and met her husband Alec House while working as a server at a local Thai restaurant. After launching a successful catering business with the help of her older sister, Chef Sangwan 'Wan' Chant, Supannee and Alec decided to open their own brick-and-mortar restaurant. With help from her family, including Chef Wan running the kitchen, Supannee House of Thai has become known as one of San Diego's top Thai restaurants and a true farm-to-table eatery. The restaurant sources most of its vegetables and herbs from two of its own expansive gardens that Supannee personally oversees - one in Point Loma and the other in El Cajon. 

Due to recent health issues with her sister Chef Wan, Supannee decided to sell her restaurant last month to Suree Suksudecha, who also owns Siam Nara restaurant in Mira Mesa and operated Amarin Thai in Hillcrest from 1998 until the eatery closed in fall 2020. Supannee House will stay on as a consultant and continue to provide produce from her farms to the restaurant. 

Supannee House of Thai is located at 2907 Shelter Island Drive, #110, in San Diego's Point Loma community. For more information, visit
