Fast and efficient restaurant. Nice selection of Thai food served hot, fresh and fast. Prices are a bit high but the portions are good. Parking available on the street paid via a meter.

What an amazingly good dinner. Showed up and there was a wait, so we were offered hot tea on a cold night. Enjoyed tom khan chicken and egg roll appetizers. When I thought of what seemed local to Oregon, thought salmon was the answer. So...More

In general, it is very difficult to find authentic, good Thai food in the USA and this restaurant fits that description. The Pad Thai was gluey and tasteless, except for the hot component. The Fried Basil with Shrimp and Chicken was just ok. The service...More
