Was told that I had to try this place. Made the mistake of reserving a table for 8 upstairs. Ambiance was very eclectic and thought we would have a fun unique dinner. Service was very slow and our server didn't pay us much attention and acted like he had better things to do. Some of the food was good (prawns)... More

The wait for this place is very very long (up to two hours) ... we spent ours eating appetizers in Bollywood Theater down the street ... but even if just for the most fantastically, crispy/sweet/salty/spicy Fish Sauce wings I have ever had it is worth the wait. On top of this the service is professional and courteous (not sure what... More

We decided to try Pok Pok for an early dinner. We got there around 5 pm on a week night. There were people waiting ahead of us but we opted for counter service instead of waiting 30 minutes for a table. The restaurant is very unique ...it looks like a food cart that grew and expanded over time into a... More

...seeing the raves of online "best of" lists. The chicken wings are the best thing on the menu, but somewhat salty. The other dishes I've tried (catfish, boar collar) are average at best. LUCKILY, it was neither expensive nor filling, so we dashed up the street for one of the best pizzas I've had at Apizza Scholls! If you're set... More

Our family had dinner here to celebrate our wedding anniversary, we heard all the hype about this place and have decided to check it out. The food is half decent, chicken wings are the best but a bit on the salty side, I have heard my friends waited for 2 hours to get a table but is it worth it?... More

I'm not sure if it's just because I'm not crazy about Thai food or spicy food but I didn't particularly enjoy Pok Pok. My dining partner loved it and wants to go again and take friends and family there, but I'm not sure it's worth it. The chicken was good, but nothing to write home about. I liked it but... More

This is seriously nothing special - I was surprised. I've heard nothing but praise, waited 45 minutes at 3 PM and was disappointed. There is great Thai food in Portland. Unfortunately, you won't find it at Pok Pok.

We visited this establishment with two other couples for the first time a couple of weeks ago. We tried making reservations ahead of time but had no success so we decided to get there early. We put our name on the list around 4:30 pm on a Saturday and 45 minutes later we were seated upstairs. Perfect timing. Additionally, we... More

Stopped by here on our last Portland trip with two friends. I love the set up here it's like a restaurant underneath someone's house. Everything I"ve tried so far on the menu is delicious the only critique I would have is that things do taste saltier than I'm used to - but I think that's the norm in the US... More

We were able to get a reservation for lunch with 6 people in our party with no wait time. Two people at our table had been to Thailand several times, and told us that Pok Pok serves real Thai street food. We were not disappointed. My favorites were the wings and the ribs, as well as the daily special of... More
