An old favorite in Downtown Cedar Falls is getting a new name. Located at 111 West 2nd Street, the restaurant formerly known as Ginger Thai Cuisine is reopening this month.

In September of last year, the restaurant owners made an announcement that they would be saying goodbye to Ginger Thai Cuisine. This Thai eatery closed in the fall of 2021, but many of their most popular dishes were still available at their sister business, Tata Yaya. Both businesses were operated by the same owners.

The popular Thai cuisine restaurant is officially back up and running, but with a different name. Bid farewell to Ginger Thai and hello to Yummy Kook Kook.



This family run business will be be celebrating their reopening from January 19th to the 21st.  They will be open from 11am to 2pm for an express Thai Lunch (Thai Express Lunch) and 4:00 pm to 6:30 pm for dinner.

For more information on the reopening details make sure to check out the restaurant's Facebook post.

Over the past year, the Cedar Valley has seen some major growth. Several new spots have opened this past summer in Cedar Falls.
