Neisha Thai Cuisine
In 1999, Rick Kitchrayotin made his childhood dream a reality by founding Neisha Thai Cuisine. “NEISHA” means “INDEPENDENCE”, “INDIVIDUALISM” and “UNIQUENESS”. All qualities that characterize Rick’s most precious jewel of all, his first baby girl.
And so was born the restaurant, named after his dearest daughter, expressing that same spirit of uniqueness and carving out its own identity in northern Virginia. Rick always dreamed about sharing the love of his home, Thailand with his new community in the US. He cherished his homeland’s exotic beauty, warm and friendly atmosphere, and the fragrant and delectable tastes of Thai’s dynamic cuisine. He wanted his new community to enjoy it for themselves and felt confident that his neighbors would respond to a new dining haven. He wished to create a reliable and lasting experience that people would return to time and time again.
As Rick considered his dream restaurant, he felt that each of his dishes should represent his precious gems, each with its own rich facets of flavor.
Upon relocation in 2013, Rick took the opportunity to create a New Neisha Thai. He has enhanced the dining experience by bringing in authentic textiles from Thailand, enriching his guests’ time with a visual feast, to compliment the feast set on the table. Neisha Thai has built upon its classic dishes as its foundation, and evolved into an exquisite experience, an oasis of Thai culinary.
