Great food-the green papaya salad is unique and yummy! If you're adventurous, try the sipping vinegars. They are seriously good and a refreshing alternative to soda and they go really well in cocktails!! The prices are a little high but its really good food.

After hearing this mentioned on a recent “No Reservations” episode we thought we’d give it a try. Note: Chef Andy Ricker has Pok Pok locations elsewhere as well (NYC for one). Around 6-ish the wait was only 30 – 45 minutes, which easily passes when you walk across the street to their sister establishment, the Whiskey Soda Lounge. The two... More

Great service. Friendly, knowledgable and mostly absent except when needed. Wings obviously great but the drinking vinegars are so good too. Prawns with rice noodles amazing. Boar's collar was spicy goodness. The sticky rive here is hands down, great

This is unnerving how authentic this place is. Kind of unassuming decor. Very reminiscent of Asian family patio in the summer, right down to the tacky vinyl tablecloths. Be brave. Try something spicy. But don't miss the chicken wings. Lime refresher is also a must. And the rice is awesome fragrant. No guilt if you had a Salt and Straw... More

Reserved in advance (necessity), for a group of 10. Awesome wings (a must). Menu is Thai inspired, and will give your mouth's taste and heat receptors a ride. Great variety of meat and non-meat items. Service was friendly, and efficient. Indoor and outdoor seating. Good for Groups. Very popular restaurant, check it out if you can.

This was my second visit to Pok Pok. I was last there two years ago. I was surprised at how built up the area had become. The food at Pok Pok remains delicious and the building itself is part of the charm. A hodgepodge of buildings that appears to be part bungalow and part car port -- it's a great... More

They quoted us a an hour wait but we did not have to wait an hour. They use an app called "no wait" to check you in. Download it before you go and can see how long the wait is going to be. The food was good. We had the Ike wings, pork skewers and the catfish salad. All very... More

Funky space but feels like a place where it's about the food...and it proved to just that. The spicy chicken wings were great ...disappointed with boar shoulder ... Should have gone with baby back ribs. The Mellon salad was very flavorful...service was efficient and friendly

The food here was definitely not what I expected, but made for a fun exploration over dinner! Drinks were excellent, and we appreciated that we could wait for our table over at Whiskey Soda Lounge.

Love this place. I was in Portland to visit Reed College and heard about this restaurant pok pok. told it was a cant miss. It truly was awesome. Papaya salad, water spinach, and chicken wings were to die for. Ate there twice while we were in Portland. Run dont walk and get there early or at off hours for it... More
