It is very difficult to trust reviews on citysearch when it comes to ethnic foods because people are accustomed to certain tastes and flavors that are not necessarily authentic.

Having an Asian Indian palate, I prefer my Thai food bursting with spices and heat. I ordered a noodle dish and tom kha "HOT" at Mealmonger. The noodles came extremely bland as if they were only sauteed in oil with not even a single fleck of chilli pepper as I had ordered it. There was a single leaf of wilted lettuce on top of it. (Your guess is as good as mine.)

The tom kha wasn't that bad, though a little oily and sour, but spicy just like I liked it. Hence, the 2nd star.

Because I don't drive anymore and I was starving, I went ahead and ordered with them because of their lower delivery charge. Will not be eating here again, but like I said, I prefer spice and heat. Also, if you look at other reviews, it seems like they have trouble following directions, even with online orders.

This Thai restaurant is in an odd place on Powell Blvd and I bet often overlooked. I enjoyed the food, large portions so you can share with your dinner mate. They were open to helping vegetarians find something we could eat. Their Pad Thai was tasty. I think their menus are a bit confusing and should be easier to read. I thought that the service was friendly. I would try a curry next time because they had some different ones. I hope to see more vegetables next time too. I will go back because it was healthy, flavorful and reasonably priced!

If you haven't had black sticky rice, you won't know why I was so happy to find someone who has it in Portland. I've even put a whole order through Delivered Dish just so I could get the black sticky rice.

The food is good, the owner is very very friendly--especially if you speak a little Thai. If they were closer to home I'd go more often, but even so we've been several times, when my sister's Thai partner wants to eat Thai food. If they are your neighborhood place, go hang out!

To the person who ordered food from OHSU--Absolutely don't order from a restaurant that can't guarantee not to put allergens in your food. But I know it wasn't done on purpose. English is not the first language of anyone there that I've met. Some of the staff doesn't really speak English, let alone read detailed instructions in English. This is a casual, friendly place, run in a Thai style by Thai people. Not corporate catering.

Mai pen rai.

My boyfriend and I have eaten here a handful of times and we've yet to be disappointed. The atmosphere is cozy and welcoming and the servers are always friendly. Also the food is very reasonably priced and the portions are large. The food is not biblical by any means but it is very good, and any place that can feed two people dinner for under twenty five dollars is a place that gets my business. If you live in Southeast take advantage of this neighborhood asset, and if you don't, make the journey.

Pros: food, service, price, atmosphere

Cons: gravel parking lot

Try the mussamen curry, its some of the best in the city. Their salad rolls are not just rice noodles and a few bean sprouts, they have lots of fresh crunchy vegies. I would recommend them highly.

You will not spend much to go away full from Lemon Leaf. The funky location may put you off, but the low prices and speedy service of decent food will bring you back again.

My order was simple, Pad Kee Mow with tofu to go. I got my order quickly and the box was heavy, so I thought I had scored. I got to car and sampled the food; with the exception of the Thai sweet basil, I found it extremely bland, the noodles were a mess of everything solid glued blocks and tiny pieces of pasta (usually found at the bottom of the box/bag) and last but not least there was no tofu. I went back told them about the tofu but what can you say about the other two issues. Perhaps I'm just a picky eater, but I do know what I like and this is not it. As I waited for the fix I read the flowing reviews from three other diners. Look, with so many great Thai restaurants in Portland, why settle for "hit and miss"
