Nam Tok means “waterfall” in Thai and Lao. It’s also the name of our signature dish. Since we live in Deschutes county, and “des chutes” means “falls” we thought this was an appropriate name.
Our focus is Northern Thai food, and Lao food from the region that Lee, the brains behind the food, was raised with.
As a rule, the food tends to have more fish sauce, and be more savory than the sweeter dishes from southern Thailand. Thai food tends to be very Americanized and it is our wish to share with you the food that we are accustomed to. We hope that you will really enjoy this experience rather than the run-of-the-mill Thai food.
