We sat at the bar and had lobster chips, scallop skewers and pork satay to start a night out. The lobster chips were just okay but the sweet chili sauce they were served with was really good! Enjoyed both sets of skewers. The host was nice enough to make space for us at the bar so we could sit together.... More

I went here on Saturday night. I have lived in Portland for quite some time and this has been on my "need to visit" list for most of that time--I just haven't made it. We ended up going while the late night menu was available and we got: Kanom-krok Quail Eggs seasoned with soy sauce and scallions Brussels Sprouts fried... More

We had a great dinner at the Boda. We shared the mussels which were delicious. A must try. We had the shrimp skewers, also very nice. Each of our entrees were perfect as was the atmosphere. Server very attentive and helpful.

This is one of the best Thai restaurant in Maine! The specials are often times worth getting. The food is always freshly made, not--as my husband and I found--heated up in a microwave or an oven. The wait staff are always friendly and accomodating. All in all, it's a very darling and casual place. We'll keep on coming back for... More

Good atmosphere, was hopping on a Saturday night. The service was excellent. Quality food and reasonably sized portions. Be prepared to wait on a Saturday night for sure. We had a few apps and split an entree.

I had the Hat Yai Fried Chix w/ Spicy Green Papaya Salad BOTH NIGHTS which was superbly delicious both times. Service is... More

We loved the dishes we ordered from Boda. Everything was tasty, the drinks were really good and the services here are just phenomenal. If you like thai and asian food, definitely swing by this place for a meal.

Boda is a great little Thai Fusion restaurant in Portland. The food is awesome and the service outstanding. Go ealr as it gets very crowded late and they do not take reservations. For the price, this restaurant can't be beat.

Busy on a Tuesday last week of August, with a line out the door, we waited 10 min for a table. 20 or so tables split in two funky dining areas with bar optional seating. Windows overlooking Longfellow square gave an European feel. We were told it's an always busy restaurant with tourists, locals and the after work crowd. The... More

Nominally Thai but majorly adventuresome menu. I ordered mussels, bacon wrapped asparagus, and to balance it out a shrimp apple salad that ended up as the highlight of the meal. Every dish married some unexpected with the expected. This would have been five star except for disappointing Malbec. They replaced it with another wine of my choosing, which was great.
