To celebrate a successful first year of business, owners of Payson’s only Thai restaurant laid out a feast Tuesday for community members who helped make the family’s dream a reality. Mam and Mac Katepratoom had imagined opening their own restaurant for years, but never dreamed Ayothaya Thai Café, 404 E. Highway 260, would be such a success when they opened last year. That success is due both to the quality of and authenticity of dishes, diners said Tuesday. Gary Richardson, district sales manager with Sysco, said he has visited many restaurants in his career, and Mam and Mac are some of the easiest customers to work with and put out a great product.
