Chantanee, a favored Thai restaurant in Downtown Bellveue, currently located behind Sports Authority in a remote alley for the last 14 years, has announced that they will move locations.

Their 6,000 sq ft new location will be located a couple of blocks away, at Key Center in the Downtown core. The move is expected to happen by September of this year.

A new menu, with new dishes, along with a full bar is expected to coincide with the opening of the new location. Chantanee will also add a happy hour to their menu, free WiFi, and outdoor dining.

Unfortunately, the move comes with a couple of downsides. Parking during the daytime will not be free, and it will become more of a hassle getting in and out of Key Center. Also, with escalating rent and costs of supplies, prices at Chantanee will increase after the move.

All and all, we think this will be a great move for Chantanee and ensures their presence in Downtown Bellevue for years to come.
