Hailing from Thailand, Chef Mike Ponluang was immersed in the restaurant industry from a young age, helping his family in their small restaurant. He traveled extensively, living and studying in London before settling in Fort Lauderdale in 1980. In 1991 he opened the successful Coral Springs restaurant Thai Pepper, which he owned for 15 years before opening Coco Asian Bistro. Of the decision to revamp Coco’s menu, Chef Mike says, “we are honored to be a part of the Fort Lauderdale community and are so thankful for our guests. We are pleased to continue offering traditional Thai favorites in addition to exciting and unique new dishes.”


Coco Asian Bistro’s tried-and-true lunch and dinner options remain in place. Chef Mike’s carefully curated menus feature traditional Thai cuisine mixed with other Asian dishes and an extensive sushi and nigiri selection. Signature dishes include:
