The second branch of Ruen Mallika was opened on 9 March 2010 on the ground floor, E Building at the Crystal Design Center, covering the area of 186 square meters, after the first at Sukhumvit has earned the name the reputation among Thai and foreign gourmets and has been proven a great success. Ajarn Mallika decided to expand Ruen Mallika to other location in a wish to deliver the service to more customers. However, due to the difference in location and surrounding, Ajarn Mallika thus had to adapt the building style from the original wood-built to a more contemporary design that still preserves the beauty of the heritage lifestyle and Ruen Mallika's identity as much as possible. This is the story behind the origin of Ruen Mallika, Crystal Design Center.
