Langbaan is an intimate 24 seat restaurant located inside of Paadee, a casual Thai restaurant focusing on regional Issan cuisine. The name Langbaan comes from the Thai word for “back of the house,” the area in a Thai home where the kitchen and dining room are located, the area where meals are both prepared and lovingly eaten with family and friends. 


Here at Langbaan, inspired by the warm and convivial atmosphere of Thai kitchens, we transform classic Thai food into a refined multi-course tasting menu using the bounty of Pacific Northwest ingredients.  We pride ourselves in providing a unique Thai-style dining experience inspired by century-old traditions here in Portland, Oregon. 


Due to the developing situation regarding COVID 19, we regretfully will be closing our doors for the next few weeks. We care deeply about the health of our staff and our guests, and want to be sure that we are doing everything in our power to comply with government health mandates and prevent unnecessary exposure. For now, we will be halting reservations and resuming service when it is safe to do so. Thank you to every guest that has dined with us, we are so happy to share with you all what we love to do every day.

In the meantime, please feel free to purchase gift cards online and allow a few days for yours to be mailed the address you provide at checkout.


Hope to see you soon,

All of us here at Langbaan
