I planned my visit after hearing several raving reviews from friends living in northeastern USA. The green curry was delicious - you get to choose between levels one to four for spiciness. I've only tried one dish but I'm quite sure this place could convince...More

OK, my wife chose this place for veggie choices, I went along (after checking reviews). I let her choose the entrees, which of course she loved. To my surprise, I was delighted as well!

This place is all vegetarian so tons of stuff for veg fans to choose from. I had a very tasty Thai ginger noodle dish with tofu, which was very good. I would eat here again if I was in Portland and would recommend a stop.

The food was so delicious. My husband and I are vegetarians/vegans and we found things that we thought were amazing to eat. The waiter was so kind and friendly. We would have gone back 10 more times had we stayed there longer. Highly recommended!

I've heard about how good this place is for a very long time. I had dinner with three others in late April. We shared a number of dishes. All of it was delicious. The peanut sauce dish was exceptional.

Didn't realize it was veggie only but the panang curry did not disappoint! Would definitely come back. Solo on business... interesting to sit facing window and watch life in Portland stroll by.

No meat here! Plenty of options for vegans and vegetarians to choose from. Also, a nice alcohol free beer from Guinness - Kaliber. We were in town for three days and had two wonderful dinners here. They do vegan and vegetarian well - so well...More
