During a summer weekend trip to Bend, Oregon in 2012, JJ Chaiseeha, owner of the Bai Tong restaurants in the Seattle, Washington immediately fell in love with Bend’s beautiful landscape, budding arts, and cultural scenes. JJ was inspired to bring the delicate authentic Thai tastes and elegant fine dining to this community, and thus the first Noi Thai Cuisine was officially born later the same year to become Bend’s newest Thai food destination! Noi Thai Cuisine offers a variety of traditional Thai dishes that will please the palate and transport you straight to the heart of Thailand.
Noi Thai Cuisine continues the tradition of Bai Tong Thai Restaurant in Seattle, which began as a favorite stopover for Thai Airways crews at Sea-Tac airport. Come and experience the best of the best at Noi Thai Cuisine.

Meet Sandy Burns
Director of Operation, Noi Thai Cuisine
I am so very honored to be a part of the Noi Thai Family! Which includes the Bai Tong family. I was fortunate enough to have been chosen for the General manager position back in February 2014, which was only about 4 months after the opening of the first Noi Thai Cuisine in Bend, Oregon! What a great adventure for me with passion of restaurants that I have, I have had the opportunity to learn about Thai food and culture, truly an amazing experience this has been.
Even though I don’t speak Thai, I understand our goal of serving amazing food, prepared by our dedicated Chefs from Thailand.
I am now semi-retired and have my dream job as Director of Operations for all Noi Thai Cuisines locations. I am looking forward to the opening of many more Noi locations throughout major cities in the U.S. I hope you will join us and enjoy a truly Thai experience at Noi.
