Bangkok Garden Mourns the Loss of Longtime Owner/Employee Ricky Laohapant

Bangkok Garden announced the loss of longtime owner/employee Ricky Laohapant on Wednesday. Ricky was the owner and operator of longtime Bethesda restaurant Bangkok Garden, which closed permanently last August.

Bangkok Garden opened its Rockville location in 2019. The full statement on Ricky’s passing can be seen below. Our condolences go out to his friends and family.

“Dear Friends, Family, and Valued Customers,

We, the Bangkok Garden family, are saddened to announce the passing of Ricky Laohapant. Ricky was the face of the Bethesda location up until its closure in 2021. You would find him behind the bar, taking orders, or doing one of many tasks to not only work, but do what he loved. He would greet every customer with a smile and get to know everyone who walked through the doors. All his customers became his friends, his family. He was admired by many and loved by all. So as a family, let us say farewell to Ricky and may he find peace.

-Bangkok Garden Family”
