We enjoyed our visit to Kinara Thai while visiting our son in the Goose Hollow area of Portland. He wanted to try curry, and loved it. My husband had fried rice and I had pad kra prow. Everything was delicious. We shared the crispy spring rolls as an appetizer. Yum! The restaurant in very cozy and decorated beautifully. The staff... More

Such a cute & cuddly restaurant. The food omg omg sooooo good! I still remember the taste of the special lettuce wraps. Had to go twice in one week and I live in Salem. The Thai tea was a bit heavy but everything else was PERFECT. Can't wait to go back.

Very good food here at Kinara. I got the pad Thai with Crab. Very generous crab portion. Tasty delicious! I also go the veggies fried dumplings! Excellent. A great place to eat..parking is a bit of a hassle..park down around the corner by the ball field and just walk a block...it is worth it!

We had dinner here on Saturday night, having lived in Thailand for 1.5 years we are very picky with our Thai food, but this was incredible though. The Pad Thai was absolutely delicious, so authentic and the Penang curry was almost as good. The staff were lovely and very chatty.

We were looking for a good, reasonably priced place to eat before a timbers game and found this great little place. When we got there the line was out the door but since there were only two of us and we were willing to take the little bistro table outside we got seated immediately. We had the Kinara rolls, satay... More

Stop reading this review and just eat here. Seriously. Drunken noodles were amazing, the rice noodles seemed homemade. Fresh veggies, great seasoning, lightning fast.

There are lots of flashy, highly advertised Thai restaurants in Portland, but it's hard to find one as good as this. We've been going here for years, taken lots of friends here, and we've never been disappointed. Everything on the menu is fresh and authentic and the specials are routinely well done. And the staff is always smiling, pleasant and... More

We were staying at the hotel deluxe and wanted lunch close by . Everyone's dishes were great with a nice clean taste. If we are ever back in this area of Portland we would definitely go back .

It was our last night visiting my son in Portland and we wanted Asian. He lives in the Goose Hollow neighborhood. We were tired from a happy day traipsing around Washington Park. Kinara Thai was a few block away so we decided to give it a try. It's a small place. I think I counted five tables. In warm weather... More
