“A special meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

Yesterday I ordered a meal for delivery in Portland...from Jerusalem, Israel. It was my mother's birthday and I wanted to surprise her with a good meal. Of course she was tickled. The restaurant wrapped the meal in a shiny green bow and included a birthday card. The Tamarind duck and fried pork dumplings were excellent and accompanied by vegetables and rice - a meal for two. Many thanks for a wonderful surprise, and excellent mean and fine service!

Thank you very much for your kind words! We felt so honored and delighted that you called all the way from Israel to order food from us for your mom's birthday. We sure enjoyed picking out a birthday card for her and decorating her take-out package with a bow. We hope that your mom had a great birthday and we are so glad to have been a part of it. Please come and visit us again when you are back in Maine!

Best wishes,
The Saengthai House staff

“Cool atmosphere and good food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

I looked on trip advisor for a different Thai restaurant try. We have a lot of good Thai restaurants in Portland, but I wanted to try something new. I liked it so much that I've been there twice in the past month, both times for take-out (although the restaurant seems very cozy and friendly. I like that you can bring your own beer/wine.) Everything I've tried has been excellent: crispy pad thai, garlic shrimp, drunken noodles with tofu, drunken noodles with duck, the really good pupu platter. I love this place, and they're happy for your business. No attitudes here. I look forward to dining in next. I'm certain I won't be disappointed. Great value for the money.

The food tasted fresh and very good.

“Change it Up!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2013

When you need a change from the busy, touristy pier scene, this is a most pleasant spot to dine. This spring rolls were lighter than air, with crunchy, fresh veggies. Duck Choo Chee was special...large tender duck pieces in a succulent spicy sauce which enhanced but didn't
overpower the sauce. Spiced to your palate, the most mild had enough to say Thai.
