We heard someone raving about this place in line at the coffee place. We walked over on a Saturday night and got a table because it was late. My husband had the chicken coconut soup and I had squid and pork skewers, and one of the salads. All delicious. The wine was good, and the waitstaff friendly and efficient. The... More

Truly a taste of it's own.....great flavor combos with sutle taste in every bite. Great selection of dishes and appetizers. Do not miss out of one of Portlands best restaurants!

I had brussel sprouts and squid. The small plates vary in size - these were big enough for a meal, but others had only a few bites.

Fantastic food - I call it funky and yummy Thai - the Brussels sprouts appetizer is a must - if you don't like them you will now. Everything else was delish too - wish I lived in Portland so I could go to boda again and again!

Portland, Maine is earning a reputation as a foodie town, and it's not just for lobsters and fish. Go to Longfellow Square and you'll find several new, ethnic restaurants like Local 188 featuring Spanish inspired food, Pai Men Miyake for fabulous noodle dishes and what I call gourmet Thai at Boda. The Crispy Calamari was one of the best calamari... More

My sister and I wandered into Boda recently during her visit.... we had been to Local 188 but got the "cold shoulder" at the door..... (see separate review) .... not so at Boda. We were welcomed right in and given a nice table along the wall on the upper level. I had been here a couple of times before, though... More

This restaurant was suggested by the staff at the Pomegranate Inn. What a delight, and my wife and I were glad that we listened. Not your typical Thai menu, and that's what makes Boda special. We started off with the Spicy Thai wings. Great taste, good kick and nice size wings. We then had the beef skewers, which were delicious.... More

On vacation in Portland and we needed a restaurant close to our B&B. Based on a review from the B&B we decided to give Boda a try. This place is great. The menu is not large but what they offer is quite good. I would have to say it was the best Thai food I have ever eaten. Great food,... More

Stopped by for some appetizers and a drink on a Friday night, and really enjoyed the atmosphere and service at the bar. I had the pork belly skewer and the mussels, the mussels were truly outstanding with a delicious broth. I also enjoyed the house mai tai which was great! Would recommend to friends and will absolutely stop by again!
