Hands down best Thai food in North America! Try the red curry, just ask for it or the yellow curry. Absolutely amazing! We don’t live here but make an effort to come every single time we are in Portland!

We went to Kinara Thai this evening upon the recommendation of our sister-in-law who had eaten there, and we were not disappointed! We had two entrees, Pad Thai with pork as well as the Garlic and Pepper Chicken stir fry. Our appetizer was and order of the egg rolls ("crispy rolls") and while they had good flavor, they were a little greasy. I would have liked a Sierra Mist to drink, but the restaurant was all out, our server said. We will most likely return for another meal here as it was overall quite good for a small Thai bistro. We also saw many take out orders being picked up, so knew they also do a good business for customers just wanting to get food ordered to eat at home.

I saw kinara from the tri met and it looked lovely. It was! Excellent food. Lovely local atmosphere; a real gem. It’s quite small and charming.

Very friendly and helpful staff. I enjoyed spicy eggplant and tofu over jasmine rice. Really fresh --delightful. My husband had shrimp and vegetables and rice; he loved it.

If you ever craved excellent no frills Portland-tinged Thai food, you can't miss Kinara Thai. I stumbled across this with a colleague and will definitely go back. Very fresh, very tasty, nice vegan and veggie (thought I'm neither) options. VERY moderately priced, real Thai iced tea!
