    Jun's Island Fusion
    Hello everyone so a little about us is that we use to be a Thai restaurant (savanh) but now changed to Jun’s island fusion restaurant and the reason behind that is that if you really look at the demographics within a 10-15 miles radius there’s a Thai restaurant everywhere but Filipino there’s none. So we know that some dishes filipino’s have are very strong and Pungent so that’s why we wanted to fusion it out and make the flavors and bit more settle for everyone to enjoy.
