LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Eating your dinner and staying safe. Restaurants around the valley are continuing to make adjustments to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and that includes Archi’s Thai Bistro.

Servers remain busy bringing out fresh food at Archi’s Thai bistro, as customers remain loyal amid the pandemic.

“After Gov. Sisolak reopened the state, people started getting a little more confident. We are seeing more people coming in to dine again,” Ronnakon Silpasubun, the owner, said.

He says he is glad to have customers dine-in again. It’s a possibility he wasn’t sure of back in March when Gov. Sisolak shut down businesses due to the pandemic.

“When it first started, it was a huge scare. You didn’t see as many people coming out,” Silpasubun said.

He says the restaurant has taken stringent measures to ensure proper social distancing and hygiene. Capacity has been reduced by 50% and everyone’s required to keep their masks on until they start eating. A screening process is also in place.

“We measure their temperature before they come to work and before anybody even sits, we limit the parties to five and we check their temperatures,” Silpasubun said.

He also says it’s been an adjustment for customers, noticing how much they want to go back to normal.

“At first, people were concerned if you’re not following the suggestions or regulations. They’re now a little bit annoyed when we have to temperature check them every time, they come in,” he said.

Silpasubun is still making sure the restaurant’s measures are up to par and remains committed to keeping customers and employees safe.

"We’re just happy to be able to keep up and keep serving our loyal customers,” Silpasubun said.
