The Thai food here is fairly unique. The owner is Thai and brings a lot of recipes you don't see in other Thai restaurants. I really love the Homok Salmon -- it's spicy and really filling. If you aren't into Thai food, no problem. There is a full American-style menu -- a throwback to the original Woodsman. Don't let the... More

There were 7 of us in our party. It was a very busy day and the wait staff was very good. Food was also very good. We all had something different and everyone like their dish.

Off the main highway through Philomath, Oregon, one would never expect good Thai food would be behind these doors. Excellent preparation and as hot as you can handle it, this is a little gem that few would know about. More of a bar atmosphere but the Thai is very good.

Been twice because I heard they had good thai food. I guess those people like their food super salty, drowned in teriyaki sauce to the point you could spoon it up, and slow service.

Pleasantly surprised by this hidden gem! We were looking for a new place to try, and I came across the menu online as well as some good reviews of the food. Honestly, driving up to the Woodsman, I wasn't sure what to think, as well as the interior décor didn't match what I was expecting after seeing the menu online.... More

In town for a wedding and was fortunate to be able to visit Woodsman to pick-up rehearsal dinner catering. Wow! Excellent Thai from a location that's very easy to pass by.

Back in the day the "Woodsmen" was an American Restaurant where loggers came into eat and would have a plate of food that would fill them. It has since switched owners and the Thai food is good but the American food is lacking. This restaurant is no longer the "Woodsmen" and is a Thai Food place. Wish they would change... More

It's hard to find Thai food in our area so when we did we were pleasantly surprised that the food was wonderful. I can't suggest the pineapple fried rice enough. My wife enjoyed the PadTai (sp). The outside of the building truly hides a jem inside!

Don't get the good reviews. Bizarre logger decor in an oriental business is surreal and the high point of any visit. We were first in the door for lunch on a Saturday. With no lunch specials, you get the $$$ dinner menu meaning most Thai dishes run $14 and up - spendy for a single item unless it is first... More

Driven past this place a hundred times. Wife & I stopped in and enjoyed an excellent burger and Thai dish. Food was delicious and generously portioned. Server was very attentive. Even the owner came out to ask us about our food; she was a kick in the pants!
