We were a group of five adults downtown for lunch. We were seated quickly, and efficiently, though it seems as if the seating area is a bit cramped. Bangkok Palace's lunch menu appears at first blush to have your standard ho-hum Thai restaurant offerings. However the resemblance ends there. The food is fantastic. We ordered a couple different noodle dishes... More

Dragged my husband downtown to this restaurant, which I'd visited once before and had a good experience. We had to wait at least 35 minutes for our food in the middle of the lunch hour. In the meantime, we had no apologies for it taking too long or any kind of contact with the server. I had pad see ew... More

I like to eat at the carts, but when I want to sit down this is my current favorate place, but that is mostly due to proximity. The food is good, rather quick and the spice level doesn't blow me away. The staff is a little curt, but they get a pass from me because they are always flying around... More

The place we wanted to eat downtown, which I had found on-line, was not open on Saturdays, so we ended up nearby at the Bangkok Palace. We were immediately seated at the window with a high chair for our toddler. We ordered a selection of standard thai appies, like satay, and soup that were all satisfying. I had never seen... More

My first view of any thai restaurant is always to look for actual thai people serving or cooking the meals. It usually means there is someone who knows what he/she is doing. Bangkok was no different and the vegetable green curry was great. Second rule when eating thai cooked by thai people, alway take medium and never hot. I am... More

I ate here twice when I was here in the spring and was not disappointed when I returned in the fall. My boyfriend wants to go back tomorrow night again! You have to try the green curry chicken satay. Delicious!

I had the drunken noodles, medium. The food came out very quickly and the server was nice enough, although lacked any type of social skills (note: there was NOT a language barrier). It looked really good...but as I ate more, I noticed that the noodles were mashed and over cooked. Uck. The veggies were perfect and the spice was lacking.... More

While visiting Portland last week, my daughter and I found this wonderful Thai restaurant called Bangkok Palace. We both have traveled in Thailand and were hungry for a taste of Thai. Bangkok Palace is on the corner of Taylor and 3rd. It was wonderful! Our favorite meal while in Thailand was Green Papaya Salad and have found only 2nd best... More

After reading a mix of reviews for this restaurant ,we decided to try Bangkok Palace in downtown Portland. I am happy to say we were pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent and well timed, the food was great, and the prices very reasonable. Especially if you like asian rice cooked properly, this is a great place.
