I am not a food critic or anything but because I come from Thailand and when I miss my country, Thai food is what makes me feel better. I was often asked to recommend a good Thai restaurant. There are many Thai restaurants in Portland and each place has the dishes I like but just one or two.

After almost 6 years living here, The search is over. I finally found the restaurant that I do not hesitate to recommend. The place I find the food just like those I eat on the streets in Bangkok. Not only the food is great, the price is very reasonable. Thai Noodle Etc. on 2340 NW Westover Rd. They have many dishes you can't find in many restaurants and please note that I like it because the taste, the ingredients are like Thai food in Thailand that not altered to be more American.

If you like Pad Thai, a real one that doesn't fry with peanut sauce, go to Nudi. A new noodle house on Woodstock Blvd. It's delicious.

Another good Thai restaurant, Paadee (6 SE 28Th Ave), try Kanom Gui Chai (snack), for lunch try Joek (rice porridge- you must add egg and grounded pork OR if you like noodle try Ba mhee muu dang. For dinner we love Gra prao muu grob. Oh.. don't forget to try Thai beer made from Jusmine Rice named :Phuket Beer". As a Thai person, I do like the food here.

Hey Fasai - have you tried Khun Pics Thai on Belmont?  It is the BEST Thai I have ever had here in Portland. The Tom Kha is truly magical...I am in *love*!

If you like cooking Thai food, especially red curry, use this red curry paste. You can buy from Fubonn Supermarket. It tastes like curry made in Thailand. Tone it down with coconut milk so it's not too spicy for your palette.

 

The diffrent between "Red Curry" and "Padpet, Padphet, Pad Prik Gaeng" (depends on how each restaurant spells the dish) is that curry has coconut milk but another doesn't.

Definitely my MOST FAVORITE type of food. Favorite local restaurants: SOI 9, Kinara (by Lincoln High School). I have always "liked" Thai, but after spending a month and half in Penang Malaysia really grew to LOVE it! I am always looking for new local places to try. If you are ever out around Hillsboro, try Thai Princess at the corner of Cornell and 25th. Very good!

Angela, I went to the SE Division and must say I agree with you. Food's just ok. However, the owner sure is real smart businessman.. He turned the very normal Thai street food that costs only $1-$3 in Thailand into the restaurant food at the price of whatever the menu tells.  same as the food at Ping. Rice Soup is only $1-$2 now it's $8-$10 here.

Fasai - have you tried either of the Pok Pok locations? We went to the NE PokPok and had so-so food. Not the rave reviews we had heard. We will try again to see if it was a fluke but seemed expensive and just ok. Have you tried it?

Thai Peacock on SW 9th & Oak is really good. New Thai food cart that is delicious is on SW 5th & Oak called "Ping Yang Khang Tang" which means bbq on sidewalk in Thai. For ladies who like healthy food and salad try Yam Woonsen at the cart. It's a glass noodle salad with minced pork or chicken, onion and other ingredients. Typical Thai salad with lime juice, chilli and fish sauce.

Very impressed with the Beef Boat Noodle at Soi 9 Eatery on Burnside.. Just like the way they sold on streets in Bangkok. Missing home now :(
