Itt Koovanichkul

My name is Itt and I’m Thai! I grew up in Thailand, where I learned that quality Thai food was an essential ingredient to good living. As a child, I watched my parents prepare culinary masterpieces from scratch and spent my time researching the art of street food.

In the year 2000, I decided to follow in my parents’ footsteps and took a culinary journey to Canada. This journey led me to Niagara “the beautiful food and wine region” and graduated in the culinary program from Niagara College. In 2007, my wife and I opened Itt’s Thai restaurant. I believe in preparing fresh, nutritious meals using a combination of quality, fresh, local/imports, and whole foods  in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Our menus are designed to meet any dietary restriction and food allergy to provide meals that will suit Niagarian lifestyle. My goal is to offer healthier choices of Thai cuisine and to make Niagara aware that eating healthy doesn’t mean sacrificing flavour or variety.

Chang, in Thai, translates as elephant. An animal renowned for its superior strength and mental capacity. Elephants played a major role in Thailand’s history, taking warriors into battle against invaders as well as being used in royal and religious ceremonies. In particular a white elephant was a venerable creature worthy of use by royalty and all those of noble birth.

The two white elephants on the Chang beer logo symbolise happiness, harmony and prosperity.
