Melody Thai News Flash

The City of Menifee is thrilled to announce “Melody Thai Cuisine” as the July Business Spotlight, a program that is a part of the Economic Development Department’s B3 (Building Better Businesses) program. 

Melody Thai Cuisine is a family-owned, Thai restaurant located at 26846 Cherry Hills Boulevard in Menifee. Owner Pramuan (Meow) Voecks opened her flagship location, “Jazz Melody Thai BBQ”, in Bellflower, CA. In 2022, she then opened “Melody Thai Cuisine” in her hometown of Menifee. She aspires to share the flavors of her Thai culture by bringing something new and exciting for guests to experience. 

Voecks opened her first restaurant at 17 years of age in Thailand, later moving to Hawaii and eventually to Menifee. She utilized her travels and experiences to create a unique, yet traditional, take on Thai cuisine. Some of their classic dishes include Kao Soy, Spicy Basil Fried Rice, a variety of Curries, Drunken Noodles, Pineapple Fried Rice, Pad Thai, along with many other signature Thai dishes.   

From her employees to her patrons, Voecks takes each one in as her own and treats them as family.  Even though most of the time you will find her in the kitchen cooking up tasty dishes, she still finds time to visit and greet her restaurant guests tableside. Voecks has come to know her regular customers and remembers their favorite dishes and creates meals based on their dietary needs. She has even found a way to make curry without curry, to accommodate her guests’ dietary restrictions so that everyone can experience the flavor of Thai cuisine. 

Melody Thai Cuisine is actively involved with the community and contributes to multiple organizations including Paloma Valley High School, Arts Council Menifee, Cherry Hills Golf Club, the Menifee Women’s Club, as well as Menifee’s senior programs and clubs. Voecks also has a special place in her heart for Menifee’s military community, as her husband Derek is a veteran. To show her support for veterans, Voecks has hosted and catered many events in her short time as a Menifee business owner to honor local military customers and their families. 

“Melody Thai Cuisine has bolstered Menifee’s emerging culinary scene with a fresh and exciting take on classic Thai cuisine,” said Mayor Pro Tem Bob Karwin. “Not only are they making an impact through their kitchen, but their commitment to the community is positively making a difference in the lives of Menifee residents.”
