about us


Started out by Raymund Venzin as a small market stall selling homemade Thai curry pastes in 2000, fast forward to 2016 and we are now a proud family run business that includes four of Brisbane's best loved cafes and restaurants. 

Mons Ban Sabai Thai Restaurant in Camp Hill was where Brisbane audiences first got a taste of our passion for the finest quality food, served without any fine-dining pretense. Nowadays a Southside institution, just a few years after opening we were very lucky to win the award for 'Best Thai Restaurant in Brisbane' three years in a row.

When Raymund's daughter, Giorgina Venzin, finished her studies it was time for our team to grow again. Pawpaw at Woolloongabba proved that breakfast is the favourite meal of the day for many locals and was a hit with Brisbane foodies.

Two more cafes followed in recent years with Picnic opening next door to Mons Ban Sabai at Camp Hill, and very recently Piggy Back Cafe, our first venture into Brisbane's Western Suburbs.
