30 seconds — that’s how much time is allotted to prepare each meal on the busiest days at Heritage Eats, according to manager Chris Cutini.
Since the restaurant opened on May 25, it has served over 300 customers in just one day, surpassing the record set by its popular predecessor, Thai Cafe, according to Cutini.
Starting in May, the new restaurant will feature house-made drinks, including boba, in addition to Asian cuisine. The official date of the restaurant’s grand opening has yet to be determined.

Thai Café is Stanford’s hole-in-the-wall restaurant, tucked in a niche near the Math Corner but well known to many for offering good yet affordable food. A longstanding Stanford institution, the establishment has been serving food to the University community since 1987, when it was founded by the petite and gray-haired Mykanh Bahlman and her then-husband.
The Thai Café is set to reopen Sept. 20, two doors down from its original location in the basement of Jordan Hall. The café was scheduled to open by the start of the spring quarter, but was delayed until the beginning of the fall quarter.
