“Favorite restaurant in Portland”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Boda is a great small restaurant in Portland.
The Pineapple with pork and nut appetizer is fantastic.
All of the grilled skewers are great except the pork belly.
The quail eggs and Chicken Coconut soup are both outstanding.
The sticky black rice pudding for dessert is delicious.

“Quail!”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

This is the first time I had quail. It was amazing. Everything was well cooked and the staff was attentive and patient. Quantity is a little small, but makes up for it in flavor. Best Thai food I have had ever.

“Amazing food”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

We were seated immediately and I was served the best drink I've had in years. A slightly modified Thai basil Tom Collins with vodka. Unbelievable. We ordered a number of tapas that were delicious. I had the red curry that was so good it left me feeling that whomever prepared the meal poured their attention and love into the bowl. I havent had that experience in a long time. Perfect size meal and great service. Tables are a little tight together and it can get loud in there so sometimes it's hard to carry on a conversation.
