Can't go wrong with this excellent well kept secret of a Thai restaurant. You'll find it tucked away in a neighborhood just a few minutes walk off the popular 23rd. Well worth the walk. Although we've never dined in because we live across the street and usually use Maiphai as a quick and easy dinner option (also a neighborhood trend),... More

Very good good, fast, etc. Without going into a lot of detail, I wish this place were cleaner. From the past couple of visits, I probably won't be back.

E-San is a delightful restaurant with friendly, courteous staff. We have eaten here several times over the past year and have enjoyed our experience each time we visited. The food has always been appetizing, fresh, well-prepared and wonderful to look at! Service is prompt, helpful and friendly. The restaurant accommodated gluten free needs. We highly recommend a visit.

We liked it so much that my husband and I ate here twice in less than a week! The service was friendly and very quick. The food was fresh, made to order, and delicious. There was a great selection on the menu and they were very accommodating for dietary restrictions (and spice level). Both food and beverages were great! Highly... More

I'm not a big fan of Thai food but this place was awesome! The food and the service was excellent. Very relaxed atmosphere. The waitress was very patient and helpful with selections. I'd go back here in a minute and I don't even like Thai food! That is, until I ate here!

Yes, great food. As someone who has eaten Thai food all over the world, including Bangkok, this was one of the best meals I have ever eaten for Thai food. No need to buy an expensive plane ticket, just fly to PDX. Not far to walk to the famous Voodoo Donuts for desert also after dinner. Too bad the line... More

Try the Pineapple Fried Rice! Presentation (in a hollowed out Pineapple half) is very nice. There is plenty to eat even for a large appetite! Price is good, too ($8.50 for lunch/$10.95 for dinner portion) We also had the Pad Mamoung (Mango, bell peppers, onions, chicken) and Swimming Angel... they gladly accommodated changes needed (brown instead of white rice) and...

Esan is located in Northwest Portland outside the main hustle and bustle of downtown so parking should be easy to find. Inside the quaint restaurant there is a peaceful and welcoming atmosphere where you will be served quickly by friendly and helpful staff who gave us personalized recommendations. Esan has the best Thai food we've had and is ideal for... More
