“Pretty atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Am in search of quiet, serene restaurants -- found Viraporn's to be very lovely. I had Pad Thai. No surprises, it was good, but I did add spice to bring up the heat a little. My husband's Pad Pet was extraordinarily delicious!

“Tries hard, but bland”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

They're trying to create fresh dishes, but the dishes are much too bland. I've never had such tasteless Thai food, and I've eaten a lot of Thai cuisine. Maybe this works for less adventuresome palates, but not mine.

“As excellent as it's always been”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

After being absent from the Ft. Bragg/Mendocino area for a few months, I was concerned by a couple of the recent reviews here in TripAdvisor. I am happy to report that I have eaten at Viraporn's a few times these past weeks and the food is as excellent as it's always been. Appetizers, entrees have all been yummy with high quality ingredients. Be sure to try the sticky rice and mango dessert - they only serve it when they have ripe mangos.

“The spicy chicken curry is just that... DAMN SPICY!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

I came in here because it was in the parking lot of my hotel and I enjoy thai food. I sat down by myself to a fairly empty restaurant which was mostly filled with old local people (they all seemed to know each other!) I ordered the thai beer and fried spring rolls and the chicken curry spicy, which to be honest, the spicy orders I usually make at restaurants do nothing for me. The spring rolls were delicious and then came the curry. Let's just say that I had a runny nose and a numb mouth. The curry was so spicy that it was almost inedible. It hurt going in and (TMI) it hurt coming out. Not the wisest choice before doing a few dives in Van Damme, but the leftovers seemed to mellow and I enjoyed it the next day too. The waiter came over to refill my glass of water about 10 times and told me next time to not order the spicy curry. GEE, ya think!?

“Very slow”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

Dinner for two was served one dish at a time - in no partiular order. The cook must cook only one thing at once. The food was tasty but also expensive for what we got. Went elsewhere for dessert
