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.

Our Excutive Chefs
