The place is on the small side, but worth the visit. Pad Thai was excellent, along with the crispy duck I had for dinner. Priced right, & extremely friendly staff. Will definitely be back when I visit Portland.

Must have the Thai Iced Tea - tastes like a caramel chai tea, don't be scared by the milky orange color. Both entrees were delicious and filling. Served on clean contemporary white plates - very nuce presentation. Fast service! Neighborhood is a bit sketchy as we parked a couple blocks away, maybe by a halfway house or community housing?

This place was great. The happiest, kindest, even a bit cheeky (which made us laugh!) waitress you could ever imagine. Something that really impressed me was that she repeated our order back to us to make sure she got it and the details right. The food was delicious. We've never had Thai iced tea before. It's like sweet caramel iced... More

Having read the reviews, we had to try Saeng Thai House. I am an aficionado of Pad Thai and make it myself with a recipe from the woman who supposedly brought it to this country. I thought the one here was excellent, but having said that, I do prefer the recipe I use and I agree that this one could... More

This is a small little Thai restaurant with fast service, no frills and very good food. Prices are average. I would recommend and would go again when in the area.

We headed to Portland to redeem a coupon deal, but the restaurant wasn't open yet. Our options were to wait, which wasn't really an option, because we were hungry, or to go to the nearest place. Saeng Thai SMELLED so good from the street, and my feet really hurt, so they won our business. The restaurant is pretty rustic looking,... More

The only reason I haven't given Saeng Thai House five stars is because its so tiny that its difficult to get a large family party a table. That said, when you are eventually seated, you're treated to the best Thai food, served by friendly staff. Top tip, on a cold evening, get a table that's not in line with the... More

There's a reason it's ranked #13 in the city on tripadvisor, don't listen to 100 other opinions about this and that place having the best Pad Thai, get it right the first time with the real thing. Only downside, you're disappointed everywhere else you go for thai in (and even out of) town, be it as a result of price,... More

My friend and I ate dinner at Saeng Thai on last Thursday and it was fabulous. I had the "Seafood Delight": "Sautéed! combination! of! shrimp, fish, scallop, mussel, and squid with!mixed vegetables in Thai special sauce." The flavors popped and the service was quick and efficient. I would go back in a heartbeat. Awesome meal. No liquor license so BYOB.

Quaint restaurant located down the hill on Congress from Intown Portland. Scrumptious drunken noodle served with a complimentary small salad. Highly recommend taking the time to find this place.
