Close to work and quick and easy for a thai lunch. The Tom Kha soup is my absolute fave thing there, but if you get it to go make sure you ask for some white rice to go with it.

Portland is full of good Thai restaurants. Thai Thai and Thai Thai II are examples of okay Thai places. Given the glut of good ones, why spend your time in a mediocre thai place? That being said, the staff is nice and the service is quick - so if this happens to be really convenient for you, so be it.

Wanted some Thai food last night, it was really cold out so I looked for something close, I read some reviews on here about Thai Thai II which is only 8 blocks from me and figured I'd give it a try. Most of the reviews were good. But I was really disappointed in the food. I'm a big curry fan, and I found the curry really mediocre, not that flavorful or appetizing. I don't eat out that much, so when I do, I expect it to generally be better than what I can make at home. My friend ordered the roast duck...it was terrible. So tough and rubbery, really grossed us out. Maybe those two dishes just aren't their specialty, but I'm decidedly not going back. I'd rather walk the extra 10 blocks or so and go to Thai Spoon, which I know is solid.

Thai Thai II is only a few blocks away from where I live, and I must say I've become addicted to the Eggplant w/ tofu entree. It's heaven. The short lady who always works up front is nice. Seriously, give the Eggplant w/ tofu a shot, you'll totally dig it. The veggie rice and spring rolls and other goodies are great as well. In fact, just writing this review has convinced me I need to go there for the fourth time this week tonight.

Pros: Food, Value, Speed

This is such a cute, sweet little neighborhood restaurant. My boyfriend eats here all the time and loves their tofu soup. He's taken me twice; both times I've had a curry and both times they've been great. The owners are super nice and the service is fast. The yellow curry is my fave -- sweet, a little spicy, flavorful, and delicious. The vegetables aren't rock hard or mushy, but just right. And the prices are very reasonable. Stop by for lunch or dinner, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Not every dish at Thai Thai 2 is a winner, it's true. But when I lived two blocks away from this place I eventually figured out which dishes to get (pad kee mao, pad ga prow, pad prik khing) and which to avoid (any curries, most salads). And now I'm convinced that they have some of the best pad kee mao ("spicy noodle" on their menu) in town. Their prices are cheap, with even cheaper lunch specials, and the owners are sweet. It's probably not worth going out of your way, but if you're in the neighborhood stop by. Plus, the name is fun to say!

Pros: cheap, friendly, yummy

We decided to try Thai Thai II again because of its close proximity. Mistake. It has to have the worst tasting, most chintzy Thai food in Portland. The Pad See Ew was a brown lump of stuck together/broken noodles, a few pieces of broccoli and some burnt egg. The cashew chicken was a heaping brown lump of bamboo about a forkful of chicken with straight oyster sauce poured on it. For about the same money you could go to Chaba Thai...
Oh yeah - even the Thai iced tea sucks and that's hard to do!

I ate here last night, and the food was just wonderful. I got a Thai spiced rock cornish game hen with onions and peppers, it was delicious. My friend got a yellow vegetarian curry that was fragrant, slightly sweet and very delicious. The veggies weren't overdone, either. The prices are very reasonable ($6 - $10 or so for entrees) and service and ambience delightful. Will be going back again!!
