Excellent Asian Food

Excellent Thai and other Asian foods in the heart of NW Portland. The service, take-out or din in, is excellent. Have not had a bad meal here.

My husband and I were in Portland for vacation and craving something spicy. We dropped in the Red Onion after walking up and down 21st and 23rd streets. The restaurant seemed stark from the outside, but once inside, we found it to have a very Zen vibe. The service was super quick.... almost a little too quick at first, and... More

Our B&B hostess didn't recommend this restaurant but we found the food to be quite delicious. The service was excellent and we enjoyed a great meal.

I went there for a dinner on a business trip expecting high, the place is centrally located, service is good. I would say to my experience the food quality is average to Thai standards that i have experienced.

My family had just an okay experience. The service was very quick, but that seemed to be due to the way they added a pile of steamed veggies to every dish and meats that were obviously just dropped in at the last second. I found the food rather bland, they didn't ask about level of spiciness or offer the relish... More

It was lunch but that doesn't make up for curt responses to my questions. That said, I really enjoyed every dish we tried. The meals are huge so we tried 3 appetizers and still a lot. The calamari was just right - not to much batter nor over cooked. I will go again when back in Portland. I want to... More

A friend and I recently visited this restaurant and it was amazing. Delicious spring rolls. Great service. My water was never more than half empty (or half full? Hmm..) and the plum peanut sauce with my pad thai was just.... amazing. I could have just eaten that sauce it was so good.

The restaurant is solid and unpretentious. There is no salt and pepper on the tables. I thought I would try my food before I asked for them. And then realized the reason for no condiments. The food is perfect.

Recently visited with friends and could not have been happier with the experience. Service was friendly, helpful, welcoming, and prompt. Server recommended the thai iced teas, which were fantastic. The food was stellar. Apps were great to start - egg rolls and little pork meat sticks. After that, the tangerine duck was the only thing I could see myself ordering... More

Stopped in for a quick dinner after a long day. Had appetizer and entree off of the "specials menu". Crab cake and fried snapper. Crab cake was very good, snapper was "okay" ... not something I'd order again, not because it was not good, it just didn't do anything for me. I'll definitely try something else ... very good service... More
