Meet Tan & Sam Sophanthavong, The proud owners and dedicated chefs of Sunee Thai & Lao Kitchen

Born and raised in Thailand, Tan comes from a family of restaurateurs. She came to Portland to help her mother, Sunee, open the restaurant in the mid-2000s.

After Sunee stepped down as head cook, Tan took charge of the kitchen, but unscrupulous business partners nearly derailed the restaurant until “we kicked them out and started fresh,” says Sam.

The early years for the husband-wife team were challenging. At times they ran the restaurant on their own, with Tan cooking and Sam taking orders, bussing tables, and running deliveries all around Portland.

Tan describes it: “It was crazy! sometimes Sam would be out on a delivery and customers would help us, they would ring in their own orders and put cash in the till, or bus their own tables—” 

“Bottom line: the neighborhood believed in us. They love Tan’s food, and they wanted us to succeed,” adds Sam. “We’re so grateful for their support. Now we have an amazing business with over 10 employees, we run the best late-night Thai delivery in Portland, and we’re going to be here for a long time.”
