Boda was recommended by a local. He said it was one of his favorite and I understand why. Boda is small but the the short wait was worth it. The aromas coming from the kitchen backed up the great flavors of our food. The Thai Sticky Rice Ball was simple but delicious. If you're in Portland, make sure you make... More

Small, but nice location downtown Portland. Good service and awesome thai food very well served. Nice big portions for an average price! I really recommend this place!

Absolutely delicious twist on authentic Thai cuisine, unique signature cocktails, beautiful presentation, modern decor, excellent service, get there early or plan to wait for a table but entirely worth it

This place was SO GOOD!! The flavors were phenomenal and fresh. The service was also very prompt and friendly. I had the braised beef noodle soup (a special for the day) and it was amazing. I would love to return to this place the next time I come to Portland!

The restaurant is lovely inside and the service was warm and friendly. My husband got a beer and I (being pregnant) begrudgingly got a lemonade, which ended being very good. We got two appetizers: the wings (which were good and spicy) and the lobster chips (which we got for the sake of novelty, and they were okay, but nothing special).... More

Here you will find a perfect bite of food: Order the Kanom-Krok Quail Eggs, the bacon wrapped asparagus skewers, and the Thai sticky rice ball. Ask that they be served at the same time. Scoop up a perfectly cooked and perfectly seasoned quail egg, top it with a small bit of charred garlicky sticky rice, and a small bit of... More

Went to Boda after a concert and a several month hiatus from eating there. It was especially exciting that they were even open because it was late on a Monday evening. I believed they were only open late on the weekends but the waitress told me they were open until 12:45 p.m. every night. I love the consistent quality and... More

This has been our favorite go to restaurant for many years. We love the wine and cocktails as well as a big pot of ginger lemon tea. The pad thai is wrapped in a sheer layer of egg that makes it different from any pad thai we have every had. Another favorite is the duck and the beetle leaf appetizer.... More

This is a "go to "place for us in Portland. Great place to go before or after a performance at One Longfellow square. The service is great and fast and the food never disappoints. Great intermingling of tastes.
