This is really good Thai food. I stopped here to get take-out. Good vegetarian choices, the ingredients are fresh and the meals are very flavorful. The price is quite reasonable. I look forward to trying more dishes. The spring rolls are very fresh and tasty, the curry selections are good. I called ahead for my take-out order, and it was... More

We've gotten take-out here for years, even as the ownerships/management has evolved. We heard there are new owners again. We recently ordered red curry, pad thai, satay chicken, panang nuah, and it was all delicious.

Really good neighborhood take out Thai...nothing fancy but consistently nice. Very good value at $7-$10 per entree. The Tom yum soup is excellent and the fresh spring rolls are recommended. Laab gai ground chicken and yum nua spicy beef salad are nice. Many dishes are similar vegetables in different sauces with choice of add - meat or shrimp or tofu.... More

Great place for Thai take-away though in the recent past their spice scale has not been reliable....I have received a dish that was supposed to be one star that could have easily passed off as a three star and on other occasions, the two star has been bland as bland can be!

We were passing through Portland and were happy to find something fast and fresh. The vegtables were garden fresh and the flavour was excellent!

I have eaten here on several occasions, just hoping it would get better. Consistently inconsistent food especially the pad thai. The owners can be rude and they won't admit to mistakes or fix them if you get your order home and it's wrong. There is better in Portland.
