Baan Thai

Edit This

Baan Thai, located across the street from Portland State University, features a full range of excellently prepared Thai standards, as well as their own specials, such as their unusually named Volcano Chicken. Dishes are available from entirely mild to mouth-destroying spicy, with a steep scale—waiters warn you if you order medium or stronger. Lunch specials are a particularly good value.
