Reviews on Thai food in Portland, Maine, United States. From ornate mansions to ocean views, this charming city - the largest in Maine - will enchant you. Saunter down the brick sidewalks and cobblestone streets of the revitalized Old Port District, where you can browse through bookstores, explore craft shops and eat to your heart's content. Visit the Portland Head Light, which dates back to 1791, and is the oldest lighthouse still in continuous use in the U.S. The great poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow is the city's native son, and you can visit his childhood home, the Wadsworth-Longfellow House. With kids in hand, enjoy the highly interactive Children's Museum of Maine. And then go next door to the calmer Portland Museum of Art, a small, but eclectic museum with Impressionist works, Maine landscapes by Homer and Wyeth and other collections. Land or sea is an option here, so if you're tired of the street life, take one of the popular scenic cruises or whale watches, or hop on a ferry to the islands in Casco Bay. At the end of the day, and without kids in hand, unwind and rest your tired feet at one of the city's brewpubs.

Asian-inspired cuisine made with love.
We are return visitors and last ate here in 2015. I can say that in 2019 the food is still just as great and delicious. The Panang Curry Vegetables and Tempeh is my favourite and the homemade lemonade. This restaurant is really popular so it's worth making a booking at peak times.

Last minute decision to go there on a Saturday night and didnât have to wait too long to get in, but worth it. The people were very friendly, the food was pretty quick to come out. A very lively atmosphere. Chicken skewers, beef skewers, bike choy, Brussels spouts, bacon wrapped asparagus and dates were all fantastic.

We sold our other restaurant and now only have one Saeng Thai House on 921 Congress St! Please come visit us and the same old crew!
We veered off the interstate, drove through an industrial neighborhood, and found Saeng Thai House near the Greyhound Station. Parking challenging. Interior small and pleasant. Fresh spring roll very good. Ordered Drunken Noodle with chicken. Arrived quickly with supersaturated noodles. Very gooey. No snow peas as advertised on menu. Only two pieces of broccoli. Good spicing. No other diners the whole time we were there. Nice service. Probably wonât return.

Have you ever finished a big bowl of noodle soup and wished you had more room in your stomach to try something else? Well here you can! Instead of one big bowl, you can try a variety of yummy noodle soups we have to offer.
We had heard good things about Mi Sen and on an early Saturday evening when several restaurants still had not opened we decided to give it a try. It was frigid outside and walking into the warm restaurant was pleasing, despite the cold we did not mind the window seat. Several tables were taken when we arrived and more people were filing in as we departed. For this Saturday they had a special appetizer: Chormuang, An ancient and savory thai snack known to be rare and royal in Thailand. The name translates to âviolet bouquetâ from its flower shape and purple color from the butterfly pea flower. The evening fillings were: shrimp, chicken, peanut, onion, palm sugar and garlic. $6 for 3 It is absolutely a must, super delicious and very beautiful, almost too pretty to eat. Score 5*Other tastings: - Thai fries, buttercup squash battered with red curry seasoning served with 2 dipping sauces: red curry mayo and sweet chilli sauce. Sweet and delish. Score 4*- Pan Moh, 4 steamed rice crepes filled with pork and peanut, garnished with cilantro and crispy garlic. We were missing a dipping sauce and found a good pairing with the sweet chilli sauce that came with the fries. Score 3*- Pork Panang curry served over rice with steamed vegetables. Although the meat has the delicious sauce around it, this is not the typical saucy panang dish, and we greatly wished for more sauce to stir into the rice and coat the vegetables. The server told us that the way the dish is made we could not order more sauce by itself. We highlyrecommend that more sauce be incorporated! Score 3*- Beef Khao Soi, slow cooked beef in rich and creamy curry served over rice noodles, garnished with crispy noodle, red onion, scallions, cilantro and lime, with a side of pickled cabbage. The generous amount of meat was very tender and the sauce delicious. Score 4*The service was efficient, friendly and service minded. (* We rate the dishes we try on a scale from 1-5, 5 being outstanding.)

Came with a friend for lunch and we had pad Thai and the noodles special. The food is so fresh and so much lighter than typical Thai. We plan to make this a regular lunch spot!
