Apsara History

The restaurant was founded by Mrs. Thao Te and Mr. Chhun Seng Lim. Apsara was originally established in 1986 at 310B Broad St. Providence, RI 02907 as an authentic Asian food catering business.

While attending classes at night school, Mrs. Thao Te noticed there many single Asians in the community who are too busy to prepare authentic Asian meal at home. For a small fee, Mrs. Te would prepare authentic Asian meals (Monday – Friday) for those who are too busy to cook an authentic Asian dinner for themselves. While preparing dinner for her clients, customers would knock on the door wanting to try the food.

It was then that Mrs. Te decided to open her doors to the public. There was no official menu at first, her customers would be served any delicious meal she prepared for the day. By word of mouth many customers would discover that Apsara Asian Restaurant not only served delicious authentic Asian food, but also provide a very generous portion.
