Chef Pacharee “Maew” Tunkanitlert-Oliver brings the flavors of Thailand to Bradenton.

Maew opened Chang Kao in May 2019 with the goal of bringing the flavors and spirit of Thai cooking to the Gulf coast. Maew chose the white elephant—Chang Kao in Thai—as a symbol for her restaurant because of its royal symbolism. Guests at Chang Kao can expect the royal treatment—the freshest ingredients cooked to order, every time.
