Misleading Articles

Both the Columbian and Reflector printed misleading articles about the owners of Teriyaki Thai restaurant that have hurt their business.

Seems the FORMER OWNER was charged and pled guilty to forced labor, visa fraud and tax evasion and both papers printed that he was “the owner of Teriyaki Thai restaurant in Ridgefield.”

But the current owners Sombat and Rujir Wongthawinkul bought it from this convicted owner two years ago!

Sombat reported their business has tanked in the last several days because local people think they are the guilty ones – instead of honest, hard working people who value and treat their employees very well.


  1. This is horrible news! I just read the recent great article about them in the Vanc Business Journal. Outstanding food and service. I send my business clients and contractors there to eat when in Ridgefield. I live in Ridgefield and its one of the best (and only) places for Thai food.

    Columbian/Reflector needs to post a new article immediately. False news like this is drastic for a small business. Please patrons and public, go back or stop by for the 1st time. Help support a business that has been hurt financially by this article.
