BEST Thai Restaurant experience!!!. I had the best service last night! I went out to dinner with my sister and we were blown away by the experience at Thai Derm. To be honest, we're just not used to such genuine kindness. Our server was very helpful when answering our questions about the menu. We ordered a dish requesting no peanuts. The dish came out with a different server and it had peanuts on it. My sister noticed right away but before I even noticed our server ran over exclaiming she had written no peanuts. I'm used to a lot of places giving an excuse or apologizing but not really taking action. For example, other places might take the peanuts off the top for us to correct it. Before I could politely say oh it's ok (even though it wasn't), she picked up the dish and said that a new one would be made for us! I was shocked really. My favorite part about this place is their thai iced tea and the fact that it comes with free refills! unheard of! Actually earlier that day, my sister and I went to happy hour at geen papaya- terrible experience with their thai iced tea being $3.50! Thai Derm's price was better as well as the taste! Anyway, I highly recommend Thai Derm based on that experience. Oh! One more thing, the seating was very cool... sitting on cushions and your feet hang below- you have to check it out to see what I mean!
Best Pad Thai, awesome atmosphere, but the rudest manager..
I have tried Pad Thai dishes at restaurants such as Thai Orchid, Thai Angel, and Mekela's in Eugene, but I was unable to find a tastier Pad Thai dish than the ones that they serve at Thai Derm. I've been eating at Thai Derm for a little over a year and I love the food. The Pad Thai dish is pretty addicting and you always want to come back for some more. The dish really brings your taste buds to life.
Along with the food, the atmosphere is awesome since it really gives the customers an authentic feel of a Thai restaurant. In one area of the restaurant, customers can sit in a traditional Thai dining room. It's great for 2 guests as well as a group.
The food is good, but I recently experienced a problem with the new lady manager. I decided to go there with 10 classmates one night. We were apparently taking some time to order and the lady became quickly frustrated with us. She bitched at us to hurry up and order, and she snatched the menus out of our hands. Personally, I was appalled by her behavior towards our group. After we were finished with our meals, we asked for individual bills. One of the waiters replied that she will get that taken care of. But the lady manager came back and said she couldn't give us individual bills. So our group went up to the cashier to compile our cash together and we took a long time since we didn't have the individual bills that we were promised to receive. The lady manager angrily said something to her friend in Thai about our group and yelled at us for taking too long. Since we were unable to leave a large tip, she yelled at us even more and told us that we should leave a big tip even if we were at McDonalds. Our group just walked out when she was talking because she was very rude. On the other hand, the previous man who managed the store was very kind and prompt with the service; unfortunately, he left and passed on the management to an angry lady.
If it wasn't for the current manager, I would've rated Thai Derm a 5.
Excellent Terriyaki Chicken and Rice!!!.
Overall our dining experience was enjoyable. However, during the early dinner hour of 4:00, there were only two parties in the restaurant and they sat us right next to each other.... awkward. It was very clean and the service was prompt. Pad Thai was good... the terriyaki Chicken was Fantastic!!
Note: The seating in the main dinning area is unique, but for those with a strong back and good posture. If you are looking for a chair with a back to lean on, request to sit up front near the fish tank.
Enjoy!! P.s. we snuck into Standard TV and Appliance for free Otis Spunkenmeyer cookies afterward.... YUM :)
Absolutely outstanding !!!. As I'm Thai and a home made cook . I have something to say about Thaiderm...I have been the regular customer from the old owner until it took over. It even turned out better than before.Thaiderm is a fine...fine..., romantic and unique restaurant. The food is consistently interesting and tasty.The presentation of some dishes are so beautiful n' creative. It's one of the best for overall (price n' what you get) in Portland to me. Highly recommend !!
Great Thai food, great service, Grat restaurant.
Don't let the fact that this little gem is located in the suburbs. The staff is very helpful and knowleable of all the dishes they serve and they were even able to make wine suggestions. The tables are very different, like sitting on your own private little cube island. Very romantic, outstanding Thai food, great service, cute restaurant layout.
Again, outstanding flavors. Go check it out!
Hidden jewel.. A friend recommended this restaurant and it is hands down the best place to get Thai in Portland Metro. The pad thai is the best I've ever had and the masaman curry is phenomenal. The staff is very friendly, decorating and seating are unique. Of crouse , food are the best. We love every thing there. Big parking lot too. HGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Favorite Thai restaurant. I love this place. The decorations and furniture are fabulous- I always feel like I've left suburban America and entered Asia when I come here. And the food is AWESOME. I've never had a bad dish. I love Thai food and so I'm thrilled to have found one that consistently delivers. I've rarely seen it crowded at night; I can only guess that it's because it's in a strange location and not well-signed.
Editorial Review. Authentic Thai cuisine is served at the restaurant that offers a family-friendly atmosphere.
