The building the restaurant, Sweet Octopus, will occupy in downtown Duluth is shown in this photo. A report surfaced this week that the restaurant is expected to open in August.

Fans of Thai food and bubble tea may be in for a treat two months from now, according to a metro Atlanta development website.

What Now Atlanta has reported that Paul Yuwachit, the owner of Thai and Sushi EAV and Donkey Mexican Bar and Grill, will open Sweet Octopus on the edge of Duluth’s Parsons Alley, possibly as early as August.

The restaurant has already launched a Facebook page which shows its future home, a two-story building at the top of a hill overlooking the Duluth Town Green and across Lawrenceville Street from the rest of Parsons Alley’s businesses.

The restaurant’s address will be 3559 W Lawrenceville St., Suite 600.

What Now Atlanta reported Sweet Octopus will serve Thai-style street food with ingredients such as brown rice, quinoa, cauliflower rice, organic chicken and grass-fed beef on the first floor. The second floor will be a bubble tea bar which serves items such as snacks and alcohol-infused boba.
