“So awesome that we went TWICE on vacation”
Reviewed November 1, 2012 via mobile

We were in Portland for a good week, and we enjoyed the place so much we had to return two nights later. The cocktails were very different and full of flavor. The brussell sprouts, beef panang and several of the specials were outrageous. We went to amazing restaurants all week, but this was in our top two! Now we have to return to Miami craving Boda!

“Outstanding, original Asian food in a bustling atmosphere”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

After a wine tasting across the street we decided to check out Boda, which everyone has raved about. Although it was a Tuesday night the place was packed, but our wait turned out to be very short. And I'm glad we waited. The food was superb, well-prepared, with original, interesting flavors, and the service was terrific All at a fair price, given the quality of the food. We'll be back.

“Good food”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

A fun little place. Looking for small protions of good food, go here. Cool decor inside. A little bit out of Old Port, but it helps keep the crowd small and make you feel like you found the gem of the city.

“Little gem and so reasonably priced”
Reviewed October 11, 2012 via mobile

We were recommended to visit Boda and had supper here. Lovely food and service, all in only $30. Worth a visit even though it's outside the old port area, only 15-20 mins walk. You'll enjoy it here.
