The wait staff was friendly, but understaffed for the dinner rush just before 7. The chicken pad Thai I had a beefy taste to it. The sauce was brown. One of the pieces of chicken was grissly and I had to spit it out. The order came out quick though. Something was missing here - couldn't quite put my finger... More

This is my favorite place for Thai in the entire state. The restaurant is family owned and whenever my husband and I come in the owners are more than hospitable. We usually get a couple of thai iced teas, curry puffs, chicken pad thai, green curry, and either coconut or ginger ice cream for dessert.

We eat a lot of Thai food wherever we go, so we started trying to find a restaurant recommended in our AAA Tour Book. Our search was unsuccessful, but we ended up at Sengchai. We were not disappointed. The vegetables were very fresh and crispy, the flavors were complex, and the service was excellent. We were a little hesitant at... More

Good food in a small restaurant where personal service is a plus. The food is reasonably priced and preparation is at least good or better. Not a fancy setting but fine for a quick, satisfying meal with a friend or a date.

We went for the lunch special with a coupon from the tourist map. Place was clean bot a little shabby with wall covered by gaudy Thai "art." The service was friendly and willing but English was clearly not their first language. The food was nicely balanced with a little heat, a little sweet .and a little tart The way Thai... More

Went here recently with my wife. First time eating Thai food for both of us. This place made it a great experience! Food had a lot of complex spices that were very well mixed and the staff was very helpful. Definitely coming back here!

Our favorite place for Thai food in Portland. Everything I have had is excellent. My boyfriend and his family have been going here for years. It's the only place I'll order tofu and I'm not a vegetarian. The Sesame Tofu is excellent and we are never disappointed. They pretty much know who we are when we come in now. The... More

We were attracted here because of the great prices and boy was that a big mistake. The food was as good as bottom shelf instant Thai food! I have actually tasted better Pad Thai from a box. My family was up visiting so we had a big order and we were all disappointed with our meals. We will never eat... More

We love Sengchai; it's the only Thai restaurant in Portland we enjoy. Unlike many Thai restaurants, Sengchai doesn't drench each dish in the same very sweet brown sauce. Instead, each dish is individually crafted to your desired level of hotness, full of fresh vegetables with great crunch appeal. There is no MSG, almost everything is low fat, and it all... More
