There's a reason it's ranked #13 in the city on tripadvisor, don't listen to 100 other opinions about this and that place having the best Pad Thai, get it right the first time with the real thing. Only downside, you're disappointed everywhere else you go for thai in (and even out of) town, be it as a result of price, serving size, taste, culture, language, people from Thailand - something won't live up to Saeng's.

Small on seating and big on takeout, depending on the time you end up eating lunch or dinner it may be a good idea getting something to go and heading to the Western Prom. From there you can watch the flights arrive from Canada that justify the area airport's designation as an "international" one. I think you can get to Iceland direct too.

Even the simple vegetable fried rice has a rich flavor, the fresh spring rolls and peanut sauce dip are a great app, and the fried ice cream is an undiscovered scandal! After the hoopla, don't forget to cleanse the palate with the unique, tangy little Thai mint that comes with the tab!

My friend and I ate dinner at Saeng Thai on last Thursday and it was fabulous. I had the "Seafood Delight": "Sautéed! combination! of! shrimp, fish, scallop, mussel,
and squid with!mixed vegetables in Thai special sauce." The flavors popped and the service was quick and efficient. I would go back in a heartbeat. Awesome meal. No liquor license so BYOB.

Quaint restaurant located down the hill on Congress from Intown Portland. Scrumptious drunken noodle served with a complimentary small salad. Highly recommend taking the time to find this place.

Had the pad thai with chicken and shrimp, and a bowl of wonton soup. Loved them both. Nice flavors, and just right amount of spices. Would go back.

We have been eating at Saeng Thai for several years even though we travel almost an hour and a half to get there! We love food, have eaten all over the world and consistently always have a wonderful, delicious meal here!
