We have been to this place several times when we visit Portland. Went again last night and it is still a place that we like. I had the Pineapple Fried Rice which included chicken, pineapple & raisins ! It was delicious. My wife had chicken with lemon grass - also very good. The price is also very good and they... More

$10.00 worth of coconut curry chicken and rice that's more than enough for two people to eat and still probably rock some leftovers. This place is amazing. I came here over a decade ago while in college and, after having traveled extensively since then, still vouche for this place!

Thanh Thao is a very nice Thai/Vietnamese restaurant on Hawthorne, in a popular restaurant area. It has traditionally been popular with the lunch crowd. It has just changed hands and had some upgrades. One disappointment of the change is that they have discontinued the lunch menu. However, we ordered a green papaya salad and a soup which were each under... More

I've been here several times while visiting in Portland. The service is fast, friendly, and unobtrusive. The food is delicious. This time around I had the braised vegetables and mushrooms, perfectly cooked and very flavorful. The portions are generous and carry out boxes offered with no asking. Tea is of course served by the port and doesn't overpower the meal.... More

We had the curry chicken noodles with spring rolls and chicken wings. All the food had excellent flavor and portions large enough for a second meal. Definitely worth the stop.

Loved our lunch here, we enjoyed the sizzling rice soup, you get a large bowl with huge prawns, chicken and vegetables in a clear chicken broth and the crispie rice sizzles when you add it, so much fun! We also had salad rolls with peanut sauce and orange chicken, all wonderful. Would eat here again!

Make sure to get the salt and pepper shrimp. You won't be disappointed. Also, the wonton soup is quite good!

This might be my third time reviewing this restaurant - i don't keep track. We always come here when we're in town. They menus are new, but the "Eggplant with Black Bean Sauce and Tofu" is still available if you ask for it, and you should. Everything is always excellent here, and the prices are right. The food comes fast... More

We have been coming to Thanh Thao for nearly 20 years and not been disappointed once. The food is good, the portions are large, service is excellent, and the friendly neighborhood atmosphere is comfortable. I enjoy the lunch specials which include tea, an eggroll, and a fortune cookie. Prices are quite reasonable. This is not gourmet dining but a little... More

Three of us went for dinner on a weeknight, one having been there before many years ago. Great food, atmosphere and service! We had salad rolls for appetizers, then shared a green papaya salad. (I learned years ago how to make this, but have gotten rusty at it. Theirs was superb!) For main dishes, one of us had the ginger... More
