BarnYen is now open in Pflugerville.

The restaurant serves a variety of traditional Thai food, including fried rice, curry and pad thai.

The Thai word BarnYen translates to mean four o’clock flower, which is one of the most commonly grown species of the Mirabilis plant, according to the company’s website. The flowers usually open from late afternoon or at dusk, typically 4-8 p.m. These flowers emit a powerful, sweet fragrance during the night and subsequently close in the morning.
