I've eaten here several times and the food is excellent, the staff extremely personable and friendly and the prices are reasonable.

In a relatively bare area/strip mall, but excellent Thai. Had the green curry 4 peppers hot (not very hot) and Thai tea, both of which were excellent. My only complaint is no Panang Curry...but it will certainly do. I'll definitely be back.

Opting to stay away from downtown Portland on a Saturday night, we opted to try this Thai restaurant near Cabela's. We loved the steamed dumplings. I really enjoyed my stir fry with chicken and vegetables. I asked for them to go light on the brown sauce and I thought it was delicious. I also enjoyed a very good glass of... More

Stopped by to grab take out for dinner. Got two meals and a small order of fried spring rolls. Meals were the orange chicken and pad thai with chicken The pad thai was good, the chicken was a little tough but over all very good flavor and consistency to the noodles. The orange chicken was not very good. While I... More

We've been coming here for several years on our trips back/forth from Connecticut to Maine. It is right off Exit 42 on the Maine Tpke which makes it a convenient stop for lunch or dinner. Fresh spring tolls are always a treat but my favorite dish is the Ginger stir fry which has plenty of tasty veggies and lots of... More

We always go to Thai 9 when we go to Scarborough. Usually, because I really like it, I order green curry with seafood. For some reason, it didn't quite taste the same as before, but I also ordered brown rather than the usual white rice. Everything was very fresh and served nicely. I guess the fish didn't absorb the sauce... More

I and a friend tried this restaurant for the lunch and the food and service were great. There is a down home atmosphere. Give this restaurant a try you won't be disappointed.

My husband and I have been going to Thai 9 in Scarborough for about a year or more as suggested by a close friend. We fell in love with their food. I became a regular (weekly) customer to indulge in their Tom Kai soup and mango curry dish that is to die for. They knew me by name when ordering... More

We stopped in for dinner because it was close to Cabela's. We ordered 3 dishes with hot rating of 4 stars. Each dish was varying hotness !!! The first one was mild (sort of like a salad), second one was fine and the third one was pretty HOT. It didn't bother me at all, but I was sort of worried... More

Ate in the restaurant. This is probably better for takeout, not much atmosphere here. The food was excellent. We ordered way too much but enjoyed the leftovers at home. Skip the appetizer and just go with the main dishes. The Chicken Teriyaki is terrific. Service was excellent. Prices reasonable. We haven't tried any other Thai places in the area and... More
