About

Bangkok-born Chef Alex Boonphaya conceived the original Circles at 15th and Tasker Streets in South Philadelphia in 2009 with the goal of providing Philadelphia’s foodies with delicious, authentic dishes from his native Thailand.

In late 2011 Alex opened a second Circles at 812 N. Second Street in Philadelphia’s Northern Liberties neighborhood with a focus on changing the region’s perspective about Thai cuisine. While the original Circles purveys traditional Thai dishes, Circles in Northern Liberties offers an ever changing menu featuring progressive Thai dishes inspired by recent visits to Bangkok, Phuket, Chiang Mai and other destinations within The Land of Smiles.

Philadelphia magazine awarded Circles Best of Philly in 2011 for “Best New Thai”, and again in 2012 and 2013 for “Best Thai Restaurant”.
