In June 2021 we let you know that Lum Thai would be coming to Muddy Branch Square, in the space previously occupied by Roggenart and Canela Bakery at 806 Muddy Branch Road. Since then things have been mostly quiet, but renovations began for the upcoming restaurant a couple weeks back (photo below). We stopped by earlier this week and the previous bakery counter that was located at the front of the store is now gone, with construction underway.
Lum Thai is a Thai food and chicken restaurant, according to signage, but we have not been able to find out too much more about the restaurant. A restaurant in Jacksonville, FL with the same name and similar font used in its logo has told us there is no connection between the two restaurants. Based on current construction progress, we anticipate an early 2023 opening for the restaurant. We will provide additional information as soon as we have it.
