Lots if choices in Portland but don't miss Boda. We had a 15 minute wait on Friday night but we're glad we stayed. Great flavor combos on the grilled skewers. I tried two: Beef had ginger and lime , and the Asparagus wrapped in bacon was delish! Both fantastic. Spouses choices were equally good. Cannot go wrong! Try the Thai Tom Collins for a treat too.

A bit trendier or hipper than the average Thai place, Boda serves excellent food. I could go back and just eat multiple orders of the beef satay, the lemongrass flavor brightened the perfectly grilled skewers and set them far apart from any satay in 99% of Asian restaurants.The brussel sprouts were also a huge hit. My yellow curry beef soup was an outstanding dish with many layers of flavor, the locally sourced beef was tender and beefy, the noodles perfect. A big thumbs up to Boda and their attentive friendly staff.

all the other great reviews hit it on the head, not your typical thai food. Everything looked amazing, especially the duck. I had the calamari and Kra-Prao Chicken...have fish sauce on the side, very hot. Wife had apple salad and pad thai...everything well very good, service was fast, knowledgable and very good.

Authentic Thai food at its best! Pad Thai, Kee Mao noodles, beef Penang, pork hocks; the list goes on. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, this place is incredible!

We've eaten in many Thai restaurants
all over the world (including Bangkok ), and this one ranked up near the top. Unusual, interesting food, vegan and veggie friendly, good , friendly service. We highly recommend it.
Friendly
