The former chef's from Typhoon! have opened up at the former Thai Derm location, it is called Thai Bloom! It's the hidden Gem on the West side. Check it out and check-in on Yelp for a free handmade coconut ice cream when you come, you won't be disappointed.
Super Happy. I Just started my job with with the City of Beaverton. I did not know of many Thai spots near by but heard about Thai Derm from a co-worker. Being a huge Thai food lover I went in to the restaurant with my hopes at a moderate level. Wow, was I impressed on my first visit! The food here is terrific. I never order from the menu, I just order some of my favorites and boy did they deliver. I have now been back on many occasions with friends. The staff is awesome and Thai Derm is definitely a must visit!
One of the better Thai food places around Hillsboro/Beaverton area.
These are the items that we tried:
Tom Yum soup (extra spicy): this was real good.
Chicken Satay was good.
Dungeness Crab Fried Rice was good too... I experimented with the item, Sizzling Seafood, and it was surprisingly good (wasn't like Mexican Sizzling Fajita style), but good in it's own way.
The Salt & Pepper Calamari (typically can't-go-wrong-item) wasn't great.
Excellent Thai Food. Great food, great specials. We love getting the chicken satay, coconut shrimp, and a variety of the entrees. This restaurant has a great atmosphere and seating style. Staff is friendly and accommodating.
Thai Derm- the most unfortunately named, good Thai place.
I've been going to Thai Derm since they opened.
(They used to be Siam) and have a great relationship with the owners so I can't comment on the service because they are super nice to me.
Thai Derm is a really fun place to bring a group of people to experience their traditional-style dining room (make sure nobody wears a skirt! the low-slung tables are a bit difficult to navigate- just throw your leg over and free-fall into your place) or a funky and unusual place for a date (one of which wore a skirt- no need to say more).
Without exception everyone I've introduced to the place has commented "That's good Pad Thai". I also like their stir-fried dishes (Cashew Crunch) and curries. green Curry Fried Rice is a real standout. They have an ever-changing 'specials' menu which never fails to feature dishes I've -never- seen elsewhere.
Here's the deal- Portland is crowded with Thai places- throw a rock and you'll hit one. Thai Derm (even with their unfortunate name that evokes dermatitis) is better than average- and stands out in it's-
1. Dining room- very elegant and unique.
2. Great Pad Thai and unique specials
3. Endless refills of Thai Iced Coffee and Tea (normally about $3 a pop elsewhere)
Wretched service, good noodles.
Boy, this place is hard to rate. Personally, I will never return. Yet I cannot wholly condemn the place, as their noodles are choice. As other reviewers have noted, strive at all costs to avoid the "angry lady". She has ignored requests for help, added a larger tip after we have left the restaurant (someone did anyway - just love seeing that bank statement), and generally made us feel unwelcome. The service was so bad, the last time we ate there, that I simply decided never to return. Why should I? when better noodles can be had at Typhoon and better curry at Rama Thai? And better service pretty much ANYWHERE?
Sigh. It's a shame, as Thai Derm has a nice atmosphere and good food.
Great, Traditional food. Good service too!.
My girlfriend (who is Cambodian), my roommate (who is Thai), and I (totally white), we love this place. We have tried many of the other Thai restaurants around town and we all agree this is one of the best. We have never had a problem with the service while eating at the restaurant. The fact that they deliver is also great! Actually, I am writing this review because we called for delivery during the recent snow storm and they still delivered to our apartment complex which is pretty treacherous to drive on.
I recommend the Thai Derm Special Beef and my girlfriend likes the Yum Nuar.
Thai food.. Traditional seating.. Kid friendly... I have had food in this restaurant a few times and I agree with a few other reviewers that the manager was a snob and talked to almost everyone rudely (it never happened to me but has happened to others when I was there a few times). We suffered from shoddy service a few times and had decided never to go there again. But then, a friend invited us to have dinner there. The good news is that that when I went this time, the manager was nowhere in sight. It was our friend's sister's bday and she was also dining with us. The staff helped us present the cake to her (cake was bought outside). Also, the friend has a three year old son who does not like Thai food. They allowed us to feed home cooked food in the restaurant which I thought was very nice on their part. We had prompt refills and even prompter service (let me reiterate that I have experienced extremely shoddy service here in the past). It looks like they have learnt their lesson and I am going to give them another chance! Food has always been awesome and they have a good vegetarian menu.
Fantastic Food, Terrible Service.... Food is great, fantastic even, probably one of the best thai restaurants I have ever been too, however I too was the victim of poor service the last two times I went there. The lunch hour was the worst. The waitress ignored me after I asked for a refill of thai iced tea. Finally the check came, still no refill so I asked if I could have it to go. She said no refills to go, even though the first time I had gone, they had offered a refill to-go. Then I wanted my card stamped after the check came. I waited for her to come back to stamp the card but finally I gave up. Thaiderm, please give your waitstaff a lesson on service. I can only handle bad service so many times, even if the food is great. Food is recommended just be wary of the waitstaff. Dinner service has been better.
love the food, but not worth the service from the manager.
the food is excellent but it is a tough decision for us to eat here because the new manager's (the angry women that the other writer wrote about) terrible attitude and service. she was very irritated with us because we had a two for one coupon that we wanted to use. we didn't notice that it said that it said we had to purchased 2 drink (my husband didn't want a drink). she said "no can't use it". i asked her if she could just charge us for another tea. she rolled her eyes and stomped off!!! she came back with the revised bill (less the $10 coupon) and threw it on our table and walked away. (she didn't even clear our table of the dirty dishes) we paid and left. we haven't been back since (this happened about 4 months ago) not sure if she was the manager at this time, but i know it is the same lady. we now go to typhoon, thai elephant or orchid. we still like the food better at derm, but just don't want to deal with the bad help.
if you do go here, try not to get "the angry lady"
