Strength and Survival: History of Baanthai Cuisine |  News

Tucked away on the corner of Bogue Road and Garden Highway in Yuba City is a quaint little restaurant known as Baanthai Cuisine.

Baanthai is owned and run by Paulette Rees, 19, a Yuba City High School graduate and former Walmart employee. Rees had been studying for a social work degree at Yuba College when her stepfather suddenly began experiencing a dark set of health problems. Her mother quickly became overwhelmed, and since her older brother was already working as a nursing assistant, Rees knew it was up to her to step in and help keep the family business running.
