I was introduced to this place while I lived in Portland. But now, when I visit Portland, I make it a point to go in here for a meal of Kao Sui or green curry. Unlike many Thai places, the chef is very respectful about spice tolerance levels and options are offered right from mild to very spicy. (In my... More

I was super impressed by the freshness and flavor of all four of the dishes we had. Service and atmosphere were good, but this place is all about the quality and authenticity of the food. Reasonably priced, clean, friendly service. Located in a popular area (NW 23rd St) so parking can be a problem. We will definitely return. Yum!

we decided that we wanted to eat Thai one evening and having read some reviews of the various options this one stood out a mile. Having eaten there am really not surprised. From the outside it looks fairly basic and indeed there are no frills. But the food was extremely tasty and very well cooked. In addition it was very... More

This place has great food. The flavor was wonderful. A surprise little gem in a nice neighborhood close to downtown. Street parking only. Finding a space can be difficult during lunch.

We were recommended to here by the staff at Inn at Northrop Station. Another great venue. There were very few people in there at 8:30 pm when we went, though there seemed to be a lot of takeout traffic. We ordered appatizers and an entree. The appetizers could have been the entire meal, they were huge and very good. The... More

For those that love Thai food: This is the place! We drive from the other side of Portland just to eat there, occasion or not. It's all about food - taste and quality. Tried many Thai restaurants and quit trying - always go back for the best Coconut Soup in town. Make sure you try appetizer - #1 on their... More

Ate here with husband and two children (10 and 13) Tuesday. It was so good my 13 year old insisted that we return on Friday. We had the spring rolls, which were delicious and the perfect thing on a very hot day. We also ordered tofu Pad Thai and the Spicy Basil friend rice. My son is the only vegetarian... More

Was there Wednesday night this past week. The food was excellent and was a terrific value. The service was a bit slow as the place was very busy. All in all a terrific experience.
