Long ago, Rick fantasized about a unique place of his own, a place that would become famous for its exotic beauty, its warm, friendly atmosphere, and its marvelous tastes. He dreamed that a combination of his creations and outstanding service would make such a lasting impression that people would return again and again to enjoy its pleasures.
In 1999, Rick took the first step toward making his fantasy a reality by founding Neisha Thai Cuisine. Nothing is more precious to him and his wife, Pui, than the beautiful young lady that will forever capture their hearts. Therefore, Rick named his fantasy world after their daughter, Neisha. In Thai, the word "Neisha" means "independence," "individualism," and "uniqueness," which are the qualities that characterize precious gems. The theme of Neisha Thai Cuisine is "The Cave of Gems" which symbolized Rick's home of origin, Thailand. The marvelous tastes of Neisha Thai Cuisine are enhanced by the exquisite reflections of the Thai gems for which Thailand is famous.
Rick and his entire staff hope that you will enjoy the marvelous tastes and unique creations of Thailand as a recurring honored guest in the exotic, flavorful world of Neisha Thai Cuisine.
