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,

We bought lunch to go for our sons (12 and 14) who are Thai food fans, and they spoke quite highly of the food. As noted by others, this is a small, not fancy place near MMC, and well worth a visit if you're in the area.

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? Three... More

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
