There's been some recent changes at Kao Soy, the casual Thai restaurant that's been drawing curry seekers deep into Red Hook for the past year and garnered one star from Pete Wells. Co-chef Kanlaya Supachana has apparently left over "personal issues," according to Eat the World, and traveled all of 174 feet down Van Brunt Street and opened her own pop-up called Chiang Mai Restaurant. She's borrowing the space from the living room style cafe Home/Made for the next six months, while she looks for a permanent home for her restaurant. <strike>The menu's not up online yet</strike> (see update below), but a staffer confirms that the Supachana's signature khao soy (a yellow coconut curry dish with noodles, chicken, and banana blossom fritters) is available, along with "many new things." The team also plans to add delivery, once things settle down. Over at Kao Soy, Eat the World and a few recent Yelpers note that the food isn't what it once was.

Update: Chiang Mai shares its full menu.
