We ate a delightful meal beginning with spring rolls and a papaya salad, followed by three interesting and delicious entrees, eaten family style. The atmosphere was lovely, service great and the food outstanding!

With a party of 10 we just decided to give this place a try. There was little hope that everyone would be pleased considering all our diverse tastes, not to mention my mom, who is the pickiest eater on Earth, so there was little to lose. As the appetizers arrived there were some happy sounds, and then all of a... More

We were wandering around in the Lloyd Center area, hungry for dinner and saw this place from the sidewalk. I was really excited to try their fishcakes appetizer, but unfortunately they were out of fishcakes. Our friendly, attentive server mentioned the chicken satay appetizer as an alternative and I assented when I learned that I could order us a combo-style... More

Excellent food in comfortable, informal setting. If your party is mixed in regards to hot preferences be sure to ask for the 'spicy tray'; the hot pepper oil is wonderfully hot. The crab pad Thai and the yellow curry were nummy! Great neighborhood restaurant.

This place is so tasty, I said it twice. Because I'm part Thai, I'm picky about my Thai restaurants, and this is some of the best Thai in town. I was sick the other night and ordered out for some Tom Kah and Larb chicken salad. So good! The soup was fragrant, light, and extremely flavorful. The larb was also... More

MMMM I ordered the Pad Thai to go and I loved it :D It was fast, delicious, big portion and reasonably priced!! The restaurant looked pretty small but quaint, we decided to take away and the server took our order quickly and accurately.

Everything we ordered was great, except for the egg rolls. The Mango Curry, "Crying Tiger", Crab Pad Thai and Salmon/avocado curry were all fabulous, as was the dessert sampler. If there are really 30 Thai restaurants better than this in Portland, like tripadvisor says, I am going to have to move here. But frankly, I find that hard to believe.

We are always looking for good lunch spots and wandered on this little restaurant. The menu prices were reasonable and the food was very good. They also include a cup of soup with their lunch special a nice touch. Lunch was about 7 bucks and well worth it. I will return.
