Our Mission

Our mission at 55 Thai Kitchen is to help the communities that we’ve become a part of. We believe that giving back should start locally and we have made that a top priority through school donations, discounts for students, elderly patrons, first responders, and military service members.

Our motto ‘Thai Food For the Community’ serves as a reminder to give back and we pledge to keep our Thai food affordable, healthy, & creative for all to enjoy.

Our Story


Why we do what we do:

Our Story


Why we do what we do:

The story of 55 Thai Kitchen begins 45 years ago with our Owner and Head Chef Vijit Pipatkhajonchai or 'Jit' for short. In Bangkok, his family owned a restaurant that he worked at before the age of 15. It is here that he began to develop his palette and love for cooking. Jit knew at a early age that this was his calling and at 19 he opened up his own restaurant in Bangkok. 25 years and 9 different restaurants later 55 Thai Kitchen is born. 

What makes 55 Thai Kitchen different from his other business ventures is that this is Jit's opportunity to give back. As the restaurants develop and stabilize, it is our short term goal to provide free meals once a month for the children in the communities we’ve become a part of. As for our long term goal, we are working towards setting up a program that turns our profits into financial aid for underprivileged children in Thailand.

We believe in consistency at 55 Thai Kitchen. The meals prepared at our restaurants reflect our core values: provide the very best Thai food while remaining affordable to all in the community. We've sourced all fresh ingredients and cook them to perfection with recipes that have been cultivated for over 45 years in our head chef’s family.

Our House Special for example, a Massaman Chicken Curry, is always made from scratch in order to give our customers a fresh and authentic experience. One could say this is the only Massaman Curry that doesn't come from a paste in all of San Diego.
