Portland has a lot of great Thai food but this place is amazing, I have to visit every time I'm in town (twice in a weekend sometimes!) Great people, great cocktails, great food.

The food was great. We had Pad Khee Mao with squid and a veggie noodle soup. Both were excellent. The cocktails were also great if a bit sweet.

We would recommend that you ask for waiter their one or two, top specials. You will probably get something you've never had before and find it absolutely incredible. That was our experience. We had something with nuts and seafood and seasoning and all kinds of things that we would never, ever choose and it was so incredible we can't wait... More

Knowing how much I love Thai food, my daughter-in-law treated me to lunch at Meesen during my recent visit to Portland. What a great lunch! I had the Stir-fry noodles with shrimp and my daughter-in-law had the Yum Woon Sen - glass noodles with prawns, ground pork, scallions, peanuts & cilantro in a spicy lime dressing. Both dishes were out... More

We met some friends here and after an absolutely hideous trip on the freeway system we were thinking "this had better be worth it!" And it surely was :) Appetizers were divine - spicy chicken wings were the bomb! I can't pronounce any of the dishes but everyone at the table raved over their meals - and the Lychee mixed... More

Completely unassuming from the outside, this place packs a punch of authentic Thai cuisine. I had the Pad See U with chicken and it was one of the best I've ever had. The lychee crush drink was so good. I don't know where they found fresh lychee in winter and I don't care. It was inexpensive and fast, the atmosphere... More

No reservations or parking- put your name on the list and take an uber to lower your stress of circling the block 100 times trying to find parking. That's the nature of this super popular neighborhood! The hot wings, fried won tons and fried pot stickers are amazing. Best value in town! Dishes are a good portion size. We ha... More

Christmas Eve, what's open, been around this town's Asian restaurants X10, chose this from another review site (starting with Y). Been to Thailand many, many times since 1978, love Thai food. My review: GO HERE! Had green mussels in hot pot, egg noodles with pork, crab and greens. Impressed by fresh taste of food, the skillful combination of flavors. Does... More

Upon arriving I asked for a table of four. I was ten minutes ahead of my friends who were joining me. I was met by a hostess that explained to me that I could wait at the bar because she wouldn't allow me to wait at the table or hold it for my friends. I asked if they allowed reservations,... More

While touring Portland we came across Mee Sen par accident. Nice from the outside, terrible from the inside. Passing the forgetful waitress and the staff busy watching their smartphones instead of attending to customers we found the food quite ordinary, missing the Thai touch and tasting like any other take away Chinese. Chery on the spring roll was a compulsory... More
