Greasy Menu

Came for lunch directly from the airport. Was coldly greeted, handed a greasy, dirty menu. Thank heaven for hand sanitizer. Seated under a pair of vent blowing cold air on my head. No wonder the table was free. Service continued to be cold and my ordered meal arrived in the appropriate amount... read more

The food was good (we both got Shrimp Pad Thai); nothing too special, but yummy. The service was definitely lacking as others have pointed out. Our server seemed angry from the minute we walked in, and both our dinners being screwed up didn't help anything. We both received chicken instead of shrimp, as did the table next to us, and...

Excellent Thai food. Everything tasted great. This is in an area with tons of good restaurants, and this place can easily stand up to the others. Not really a criticism but when I was in Paso Robles California I had a Thai iced tea that had the little tapioca pearls. I would love to find another place that also had... More

We were with a larger group and ordered quite a variety of dishes to share. These are the ones I really enjoyed: Po Pia Sod as an appetizer, Papaya Salad, Stir Fried Green Curry Beef, but the best was the Roast Duck with Tangerine Sauce, very tasty with a large portion of duck. The service was great, the prices reasonable.... More

We have eaten Thai food in many states. It is one of our favorite foods. The Red Onion was the best Thai food we have ever eaten. Unique dishes, fresh and flavorful. Great service too! Excellent experience!

We loved it so much we went back the next day for dinner! Don't be fooled by its unassuming exterior. I had the best pad see ew I've had in 5 years! The tom yum noodle soup was very tasty as well.

We really enjoyed our food at Red Onion. Plenty of options for vegetarian and non-vegetarian diners. We opted for the veg spring roll, yellow curry and fried rice. The curry was a little watery but the flavor was there. I also wish it had more vegetables but overall very good.

On our way back home, we decided to have dinner out. Spotted the Red Onion and saw that it was busy, so we decided to stop there. The only negative is parking. In this part of Portland, it's difficult to find parking, we ended up about a block away. We had Pad Thai with Chicken and it was fabulous. The... More

Had a great Thai lunch at Red Onion Thai. Of all places, it was recommended to us from the gift store cashier at the Japenese Garden. She was right on! I enjoyed the Kao Soi (curry soup) and my wife at the Pad See Ew (stir fried flat noodles with vegetables). Both were excellent, and reasonably priced. If you like... More

A friend and I enjoyed dinner here on a Saturday night; the restaurant was recommended by our hotel. We enjoyed red curry and crab fried rice. Lots of food and delicious!
