Versital Marble Bar Tops specified in Chaophraya Newcastle’s Thai Transformation
Versital is delighted to have been specified in Chaophraya, a contemporary Thai restaurant in Newcastle. The restaurant has recently undergone a £1.55 million transformation that offers an impressive blend of contemporary Thai cuisine in unique surroundings.
Stunning Marble Bar Top
The restaurant, based in Eldon Square near Grey’s Monument, offers modern Thai dishes and authentic surroundings with items sourced from Thailand on display. Chaophraya Business Manager, Simon Wright says:
Practical Solution for Delicious but Messy Food
“While it is indeed delicious, Thai food can be messy and therefore prone to staining. We needed a practical solution for our new restaurant that would project an opulent and authentic look, while still being fit for purpose and keep looking as good as new for a long time. Versital’s bespoke faux marble means we now have the best of both worlds for our restaurant – a beautiful, premium marble bar and ‘pass’, without the drawbacks of the naturally porous material.”
Versital’s 100% non-porous stone resin panels, bar tops and table tops are made to measure allowing you to specify the exact shape and size required. They are available in over 90 colours and finishes such as marble, granite, sparkle and high gloss.
“There are so many benefits of opting for cultured marble within the hospitality environment. Not only is it stain proof, non-porous and easy to clean, it can also designed to a completely bespoke dimensions, shapes and sizes. Faux marble has been known to last for more than 30 years in the restaurant environment. We are delighted with the final result for Chaophraya.”
