New Thriving opening new restaurant today

The New Thriving Restaurant is set to open an opulent new eatery on Main Street today.
“Part Buckingham palace, part Taj Mahal” the restaurant will boast authentic Chinese, Thai and Japanese cuisine, a press release on behalf of the restaurant said.  This “oriental food emporium” is said to be of a magnitude and magnificence probably seen only in the world’s biggest cities.

“We want our customers to feel special,” Fung, the manager, said. “Whether they are rushing in for some coffee or ice cream, want to have a romantic meal, or are entertaining a large group-when they are here, even for a short time, they will be looked after, they will get what they want, and they will get it in style,” he said.

The first New Thriving restaurant was opened on Regent Street in 1993 by Che Jiang Ping and her husband Xiao Guang Zhao. It quickly became one of the most popular places to dine or order “authentic Chinese food” to take out. The menu featured standard Chinese dishes such as fried rice, Wonton Soup and Eggs Foo Young along with more exotic fare.

The couple soon opened a second restaurant in Alexander Street, Kitty and a third on Main Street in 1997. “We’re indebted to the Guyanese people. They have always supported us. Wherever New Thriving has gone, they’ve followed, and we are grateful,” she said.  After the Main Street restaurant in the Park Hotel was destroyed by fire in 2001, management rented a second location on Barr Street, Kitty. It was then the idea to open the ultimate eating establishment took root and is now being realised with the new Main Street eatery.
