About Us

During a summer weekend trip to Bend, Or. in 2012, JJ Chaiseeha, owner of the Bai Tong chain restaurants in the Seattle area, had 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 southeast Asia. Family style or individual.


Noi Thai Cuisine continues the tradition of the Bai Tong family of 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.

Settapong Nilket, Executive Chef

My name is Settapong Nilket, but I go by “Pag”. I am the new head Chef here at Noi. Ever since I was a little boy growing up in Thailand I always knew that I wanted to be a Chef one day, now here I am! I came to America about 3 years ago to pursue my dream. Following my path I attended Culinary School until having to return to Thailand, but I knew that one day I would comeback to the USA. After returning from Thailand I settled in Seattle Washington and worked as a Chef at Bai Tong restaurant. Last August I had the opportunity to move to Bend and help open Noi, what an experience that was; I will always look back at that time as a wonderful experience.

Now, as the Head Chef, I have created a new lunch menu for your enjoyment with authentic dishes for you to experience. I hope that you will feel free to stop by the kitchen anytime to give me your food for thought! I am always learning and hope to learn from your experiences. I promise to put my heart and soul in every dish I prepare for you.

Thank you for dining with us, have a tasty day!

Chef Pag, Settapong Nilket
