Thai food is our usual #1 choice, and this is the best Thai restaurant in North Portland (and yes, there are not a lot, but I think we've tried most of the others). Each time we've been the place has been nearly empty. I can't figure out how they stay in business if that's typical, though they had several carry-out orders each time we were there. The food is tasty and obviously from fresh ingredients so it can't be the food. Once we got a dish that was hotter that we could eat, but we hadn't asked, so our bad.
This restaurant was apparently one of former Typhoon! locations. Typhoon! went under in late 2011 amid charges of tax evasion, labor law violations and other skullduggery. Someone opened this location under the Mee Dee name and we've enjoyed it.
