First, make a reservation. Ports is extremely busy. Second, enjoy the staff. Very friendly, thoughtful and helpful. The menu is eclectic which was great. I really enjoyed vegetables in curry. Nicely spiced and a large portion. We will definitely return.

I'm not 100% sure if there is one or not but I did see children there around the age of 10 yrs old . But it would be in your best interest to call for reservations anyhow and you can ask then
