Great experience - Try the 'Crab Pad Thai' for something tasty & unique.
Thai Bloom! opened August 25th, 2012. Two of the executive head chef's are formerly from Typhoon!, but we are not in a newly remodeled locations with superb quality food, prices, and service. We hope you come in and give us a try!
Favorite place for Thai food in Beaverton and they deliver!
Best thai in Beaverton!. The food is consistently great, the service rocks & I love their wine list.
See all the BAD reviews, below.
I've never given a restaurant a zero, but Typhoon in Beaverton deserves that rating tonight. Only, stupid CitySerach requires at least 1 star. LAME.
Even regulars, sitting next to us at the bar, were floored.
See all comments below that mention "good food, TERRIBLE service."
Good Food Can't Make Up For Horrible Service. The food at Typhoon! is very good, however, the service is unfailing terrible! We've given them numerous chances figuring it was a one-off bad night, but that has not been the case. You have to practically beg the wait staff to serve you water along with your meal. Alcholic beverage orders are consistently brought late to the meal, appetizers take forever to arrive and then the main courses are generally brought almost immediately. The last time we were there (a couple of weeks ago) we were not even offered a dessert menu or coffee. We had also let the wait staff know that night that we were there for a special occassion and I believe they went out of their way to have even worse service than usual. In spite of their good food, the service is so horrible that we will not be returning again.
Best fried rice. I like going to this place for several reasons. First of all, it's right on the MAX line and secondly, kind of like the atmosphere. In general the servers are fun to look at but for many of them it stops there. One thing they do that I so appreciate is they will make fried rice with brown rice. With dietary restrictions it's pretty much the only thing I get there and I'm grateful for the brown rice. I won't go back to the Typhoon on NW 23rd because they seem to have an issue with using brown rice for making fried rice. I'm not a huge fan of Thai food but this is probably the best fried rice I've had yet. One of the problems with Thai food is the added sugar in most dishes, which we could all use less of, especially when eating rice. When I asked if they could leave it out, I got this look as though he thought I was from Mars. The service is often not the greatest, as it can be with some west coast places, but the last time I was there, the server I got, seemed to be just a little too shy to be effective. He made me feel very uncomfortable at times and beyond checking on me once, I would have preferred he not come back. Will I go back? Oh yes, most definitely, even though it is way over-priced.
Great Happy Hour!. My bf and I often go to Typhoon for their happy hour menu. Everything we have tried has been quite tasty. The drunken noodles are the best, and their peanut satay is pretty darn good, too. The atmosphere is nice, and the place is beautifully decorated. It seems like the same bartender is working everytime that we go, and he is great. I wish I knew his name! He's always very gracious and good at refilling drinks when necessary. Which is good, because those drunken noodles are pretty spicy! Make sure to ask them to make them mild for you, if you don't like real spicy. We go there every few weeks, and have yet to have a bad experience. Check it out sometime!
Think Twice. We just came back from Typhoon, where we picked up our takeout pad thai, green curry, and red curry. To our surprise and disappointment we opened the boxes and found small portions--tiny when compared to the $36 we paid. Good food, small portions, overpriced.
If the service were as good as the food.... We have made multiple visits to this restaurant and really like the food, which is most important. However, our last two visits we have had the same server and the same miserable service. When we sit down we feel like an after-thought. She'll come by whenever she happens to find the time, pays no attention to our empty wine glasses, forgets to bring out portions of our order and the accompaniments and genererally shows no concern for her patrons. So we love the food, but why go somewhere that you don't feel welcome! Furthermore, when we left the restaurant one of the other servers had a basket of fried food sitting on the hostess station shoving her face with food while carrying on a conversation with the hostess. Classy way to greet patrons for sure. She didn't even ask us if we wanted a chunk of fried goodness. Show some manners at least.
