tasty and quick

The food is not too salty (contrary to other reviews) it is basic Thai/American cuisine with quick and friendly service! prices are on par with other Thai places around ($7-$15ish average meal) parking is street parking/annoying... most places in Portland are stuck with bad parking choices, locals... read more

This was the second time I've had food from here and it won't be the last. We ordered take out from work and by the time I got to it, it was still warm and delicious. I had the drunken noodles with chicken. It had a good spice level (2 stars) but it's always a gamble since every restaurant rates... More

We ordered take-out on the recommendation of friends: big mistake! Portland has a large number of modest but tasty Thai restaurants, and several very good ones, so this was disappointing to say the least. My Crispy pad thai with pork was a few noodles with a large container of glutinous, under-seasoned (except too much salt) muck with a few hunks... More

Hello, We are extremely sorry about your tasteless Pad Thais. Unfortunately, we were understaffed that day and had help from an undertrained cook. We invite you to come back and try our Pad Thais again and we will be sure to give you a special deal. Sincerely, Saeng Thai House More

My husband and I stayed in Portland and ordered the Spicy Pad Thai and the Crispy Pad Thai from the online menu to be delivered to our hotel. My husband said his Spicy was "okay," but my Crispy bore no resemblance to the menu description. Now, I'm wondering if there was a soup that was mistakenly sent to me. I... More

This is a cute little restaurant with a nice staff, but my meal was mostly inedible. I order pad thai with tofu, and the first few bites were great. However, the cumulative effect of far too much salt or MSG made the entire dish impossible to eat. I gave up with about 1/3 eaten.

Well, I have to say that I am very unhappy to write this particular review of this sweet little restaurant, which I have visited many times, and have always had a good experience- until now. It was most embarrassing as well, because I had a friend up visiting from Florida, who requested having "good pad thai" and I promised this... More

We enjoyed a very pleasant lunch in this modestly sized place outside of downtown Portland (you would not want to walk here from downtown unless you are quite fit!). The service was good and the food is really excellent and, given that my wife is from Thailand, we can confirm that the dishes are authentic, and really good. We will... More

We got there after a day on the road at 8:30 and the place was full. We asked for take out and received it at 9pm. The staff was apologetic and offered us water while we waited. I accepted gratefully since the room was hot. By the time we checked into our Scarborough motel the food was still warm and... More

Food seemed fresh, service was great, clean, loved the cute little restaurant, romantic, I got some kind of chicken dish on a half pineapple which was excellent. I've had better pad thai. Reasonable prices. Pretty easy to find street parking,
