Best Thai Restaurant in LO

Portland is a goodie paradise, Lake Oswego/West Linn... not so much. I was delighted to discover that Curry in a Hurry was something more than I expected from a suburban restaurant. The Pad Thai with grilled chicken and peanut sauce is fabulous. I love the pumpkin curry. The food is well... read more

We love this place. Super friendly and the food is great. I can call in an order and pick it up on the way home. We love the Pad Thai and Pad See Ew. Also the Musman curry is delicious.

We have been eating here for quite some time, mostly for take-out and this time I am displeased that we were charged a tip. We generally line out the tip option and write in orig total. I was surprised that this is the first time they charge us a tip of $2.00 with tip sec being crossed out. Also, we... More

TOM KAH. This soup is a must have when ever I visit. It's a hot and sour soup in coconut milk with cabbages, zucchini, mushrooms and carrots, topped with cilantro. Shrimp is my favorite add-in and they don't skip on the number of shrimp they put in the soup. Chicken or tofu is also a nice selection. Pad Thai is... More

Initially I was seeking an Indian restaurant because I love Indian food . . . when searching online, this restaurant was shown as an Indian restaurant, but after arriving, I discovered that it is primarily Thai food and run by Thai people. There were a couple of Indian meals on the menu, but I decided to go ahead and order... More

Curry in a Hurry is one of my favorite Thai restaurants. The place is very comfortable, service if fast and friendly, food is absolutely delicious! They have many vegetarian options as well. We love their hot soups, they have a great vegetarian option that serves a family of four. We've had their fried tofu, spring rolls, stir fry noodles, green... More

This hole-in-the-wall place is warm and inviting once inside. The owners take great care to use fresh ingredients and the portions are generous. This last visit I started off with their tom kah soup with shrimp. The complex flavors in this coconut based soup is excellent and with a bit of added rice, it's a meal in itself. Next came... More

My nephew introduced this place. Admittedly, I was kind of skeptical based on the name of the restaurant. BUT...what a lovely surprise! The menu was broad, and the food was outstanding. I have to say that it is the best Thai food I've had in years. I will definitely go back!

Tried this place on a Wednesday evening, it was late and we were the only guests. I asked about the spiciness scale (1-5 stars, etc.) since I eat Thai quite a bit, and after a bit of confusion was told "Hot, Medium, Mild" So, I ordered medium-hot, expecting my Thai beef salad to be fairly spicy. They also pointed at... More
