Doo Dee Noodle
Back in 1975, near a beach town in Chonburi, Thailand an elderly couple opened a little noodle shop called “Doo Dee.” Decades later, we have brought the family recipe right here to Gainesville, Florida. Our restaurant is the only place in the U.S. where you will find the unique Doo Dee Noodle. Fragrant flavors of lime and garlic come together to create the broth. From there, you can choose your noodle type and whether you want the classic Doo Dee with ground chicken and short rib or the Seafood Doo Dee.
Our cocktails are made from scratch and infused with a blend of ingredients inspired by Thai and Japanese culture. On our cocktail menu, you will find our traditional Thai Tom-Yum cocktail and our refreshing Asian Pear and Shiso. Aromatic hints of Thai Basil are used in The Lab, and our Yakuza Gimlet is infused with matcha and yuzu.
Our teas are freshly brewed in house every day using premium loose leaf tea leaves. Come in and enjoy a classic nitro Thai milk tea, a fragrant pot of our jasmine pearls brew, or try one of our creamy If It Is signatures.
