The Scene

Gai Noi's light and bright design provides a stark contrast to the dark, industrial atmosphere of the previous space. Reflecting Chef Ann Ahmed's menu, much of the restaurant is influenced by the style and scenes found throughout northern Laos, with the city of Luang Prabang providing much of the inspiration. The dining rooms are open and airy, and a heavy use of woods, cane panels and plants give the space a natural relaxed, vacation vibe.
