I visited Poms Thai restaurant during a weekend trip to Portland. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. They were very attentive (even just refilling the water) - just like being in Thailand. The food was very good and the ingredients were fresh. If you have a chance, check out this little gem in Portland, Maine.

In a strip mall, close to the Curtain Shop in S. Portland, this Thai restaurant was a lovely surprise in its contemporary décor, excellent service, and most important, delicious and very well prepared dishes. As soon as we were seated, we were given complimentary, refreshing salads with a light ginger dressing. My husband and I both ordered seafood dishes with... More

Hard to rate as I only ordered two apps to go. Loved the egg rolls but wasn't fond of the steamed veggie dumplings. They didn't have much flavor. I waited in the restaurant for my order and saw a lot of food go by and it looked pretty good. Giving this 4 stars for what I saw others eating and... More

Have been here several times for dinner. My boyfriend (who is not a huge lover of Asian food) and I both consistently enjoy it. Portions are generous. Drinks can be strong, which isn't always a bad thing!

We stopped in for dinner when our first choice had along wait. What a nice surprise. The food was tasty, the portions large at a reasonable price. Lots of choices on the menu with different degrees of spiciness. Will definitely stop in again when in the area.

This was a first experience with Thai food. My best friend was visiting and she loves Thai so she recommended we try it, since I love trying new things I agreed and I'm glad I did, it was a great experience from the service to the food.

I had the shrimp salad and it was very fresh. The "medium" spicy specification resulted in a quite spicy variation even for one who has been seeking out great Thai food for decades so if you are a novice ask for mild.. My companion had the salmon and reported that it was good. The service was efficient and did remove... More

If I had gone for lunch, I'd be singing a different tune. The food was tasty. I had some coconut milk based soup, samplled some Tempura, tasted a couple other soups at the table, shared a scorpion bowl (Packed a PUNCH!) and got a second app that was good too. Like I said- The food was tasty, but when the... More

Was craving Thai food but was disappointed in taste of food. Service was good but food tasted bad. I got shrimp pad tai and it tasted sour.
