We've gone twice this month-long visit to Portland. Can't tell you the names of the foods, but they really were superbly seasoned, a pleasure to enjoy. The service is most unhurried -meaning, you can sit and talk and enjoy the warm ambience, either bar-side or the upstairs tabled environment. It opens at 5, so if you're able, get there then....

We stopped in for drinks and tapas - the service was great and the appetizers were oh so good! We had mussels in a curry broth with sticky rice...OOOOOOO mmmmm..yes! Fried brussels...oh yeah baby! The crispy quail was disappointing. We still ate it all and were very happy.

My boyfriend took my here during my birthday trip to Portland as he knows I love Thai food, and the food definitely did not disappoint! The prices were reasonable, there were a lot of options, and the service was good. The only thing is that they don't take reservations, and the wait can get fairly long (we waited about an... More

Boda is one of my absolute favorite restaurants. The menu is exquisite. My husband and I went with two other couples and we decided to each get a different entree and share. It was a huge hit. Such a great way to try all of the amazing dishes. Always fresh, always delicious, always hard to choose what to pick to... More

Loved this restaurant nestled in the West End! The caliber of this fusion oriental delight is obvious by the fact that it was very busy on an early January Tuesday night. The locals certainly know their spots. We shared a bottle of wine and some starters which were good, then I had the Beef Panaeng which was delicious. The absolute... More

What a pleasant surprise, an authentic hip thai restaurant with amazing ambiance. Not to mention the kao soi special was on point! Be prepared to enjoy some of the best thai food in New England

We ventured outside our comfort zone and boy are we glad we did. Ambience is modern with concrete walls, open kitchen and really cool lighting. We sat at the bar. Great service. Interesting craft cocktails and a fabulous ice cider as dessert. All the food going past looked and smelled delicious. We ordered pork satay, chicken skewers with chili sauce... More
