Southeast Asia is so hot right now. While we’ve got a plethora of magnificent Vietnamese cuisine to choose from in this city, other Asian flavors aren’t as easy to come by. Thai food is known for its balance between spicy, sweet, salty and bitter flavors.
One of our babes recently made the trek to Thailand, and her photos have had us longing for a Southeast Asian adventure ever since. La Thai Uptown has been consistently voted the best Thai in NOLA. La Thai’s brand new Nit Noi lounge features an exclusive menu of sharable, authentic and innovate small plates, focusing on modern Thai cuisine with a Southern flare.
The restaurant’s elegant 60-foot, bamboo-lined bar, as well as intimate banquet and lounge seating options with soft and romantic Thai decor elements makes you feel like you’ve escaped to an exotic paradise for the evening.
Here’s what you have to try on your next visit

La Thai introduced their brand new lounge Nit Noi in the Fall. The name translates to, “little bit” in Thai. Owner and Executive Chef Diana Chauvin Gallé is a proud part of the first family of New Orleans Thai. Her mother, Punnee, affectionately known to all as “Mama,” moved to New Orleans from Bangkok to introduce authentic Thai food to the city in the 1970s and the family has been serving locals and visitors alike ever since.
Thai and stop us from going back and eating all of this all over again. Catch y’all at the Nit Noi lounge next time!
