Khailing Neoh

Khailing Neoh is a first-generation Chinese American woman, who, like many chefs, has a passion for both food and people. In the 1980s, her grandparents and parents immigrated to Ohio and opened up a variety of restaurants, including Chinese buffets, Asian takeout spots, and American steakhouses. After growing up in restaurants, Neoh felt the industry calling her despite the fact that she graduated from college with a degree in chemical engineering. Today, Neoh is the owner of Sum Bar, Greenville, South Carolina’s first dim sum restaurant and bar, which showcases many of her family’s recipes that have been passed down through the generations along with original menu creations. At Sum Bar, Neoh’s mission is to showcase Asian American cuisine through a unique dining experience.
