Some of the best tasting Thai food I've had in a while.

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!

Food was on par and extremely delicious! The wait staff was nice but not really paying attention. I had to flag them down for another drink and then sat for about 15 minutes waiting for the check. Despite the service hiccups, I'd totally recommend this place!

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

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.
