A friend recommended Pom's Thai Restaurant on Congress St. It was an excellent choice for lunch. Service was prompt and attentive. The menu was varied and offered many choices. The waiter was very attentive to my food allergies, and answered all my questions about ingredients graciously. My... read more

I ate for the first time in 2011. Since then I always went back to eat at this restaurant whenever I passed the city of South Portland. Most of the food are delicious. Tom Yum for soup, Kra Thong Thong for appetizer, Thai ice tea for drink, spicy crispy duck/pineapple fried rice/kra prow for main course, and mango sticky rice... More

This has become one of our favorite Thai restaurants. The menu selection is large, the food is delicious and the service is attentive. We definitely recommend it!

While traveling through Portland on our way to Bangor we stopped at Pom's Thai for dinner. We ordered fresh spring rolls and dumplings which arrived in record time. Staff was friendly and attentive. Our meal consisted of Drunken Noodle and Garlic Chicken and the food was well portioned and fresh. We found the food excellent and we were back on... More

Six of us got take out so we got seven different dishes. The crab cakes were hard as rocks. The rest of the food was okay, but nothing like the descriptions of the complex flavors listed in the menu. I've had lots of Thai food in my time and this one was just okay. When I polled everyone afterwards all... More

I stopped by this place based on recommendations from a few friends and because it's the only place I could find Panang curry, my favorite Thai dish. A nice enough place and friendly staff. The curry was really good, not quite to great level though. I'll be back for sure.

The service is not even luke warm. The restaurant is dirty, especially the bathroom I can't believe it passes code...and these are the areas visible by patrons. I had spicy pad thai that smelled like feet...that is the only way I can describe it. Their rice is not even good, way to overcooked and too sticky. AVOID. Needs a complete... More

Pom Thai is our go-to Thai restaurant. My wife and I have been multiple times with friends, with family, and sometimes just the two of us. The service is friendly and excellent. They are happy to modify dishes any way you wish, e.g. add broccoli, calamari, etc.Their martini is the most generous I've experienced. Can't wait to return.

I do not have much experience with Thai food but I am always up for an adventure. When I found myself in South Portland, Maine, staying at my favorite motel, I decided to drive around to see what my food choices were aside from the typical chain restaurants. The one that caught my eye was POMS Thai in a small... More
