Portland >Stickers Asian Cafe
What I ordered: Hot Spicy and Sour soup with pork dumplings. Veggie Pot Stickers. Some kind of Indian pita bread with a yogurt cucumber dip. Jasmine tea.
My fiance ordered: Yakisoba noodles with Chicken. Green tea.
Food: My "cup" of soup was huge, which I thought was nice. You can choose how many dumplings you want in the soup and what kind of dumpling (veggie, pork or chicken). The soup tasted alright but not very good - the dumplings were satisfying and had good flavor.
The Indian pitas were more like huge crackers. I didn't really like them - nor did I like the dip.
My fiance said the Yakisoba and Chicken was just "okay". Nothing special and the chicken was almost cold in temperature.
The tea was good.
Bathroom!: First of all, it smelled horrible in the bathroom. To make matters worse, the toilet paper was almost empty and the paper towels were missing. I had no way to dry my hands after washing.
Bottom line: We won't be going back. It's too bad though because it's a cute little inexpensive place. I think we'll continue to try other restaurants in Sellwood.
dinner for 3 under $30. for 3 of us we ordered appetizer and 3 dishes for under $30! I recommend the lamb roti. There are other dishes I will try next. This is a good budget dinner/ lunch. Each taste is different so always venture out for your taste buds.
Not the same anymore..
We live nearby and have been coming to Stickers since they opened. The two biggest food draws for us has always been the potstickers and the Pad Thai. We have noticed however in the past year or two that both of these have changed. The sauce they use for the Pad Thai has been toned down, and they changed the noodles from a very long thin round noodle to a thicker short flat noodle. The problem is it gives the dish a starchy mouthfeel. As someone else pointed out, the potsticker wrappers also seem to be thicker, more doughy than they used to be and perhaps a little less of the filling is used. Neither change has been for the better.
While the food here is still fairly good, it no longer is our destination spot for Thai food. Since they only serve a yellow curry on the menu (we prefer red or green), lack many of the Thai menu standards, and combined with the changes to our favorites, we have better choices in the surrounding neighborhoods. Judging by the few customers that were there last night (Saturday) I think we aren't the only ones that share this opinion.
Great sidewalk cafe, with wonderful food, in a sweet little business district..
We had lunch on the sidewalk at Stickers Asian Cafe on Friday, August 29, 2008, and it was great.
A cute and courteous young Asian waitress served us and she was right on top of things.
The food was superb and the menu was very deep, with a lot of unusual choices.
We are going to recommend Stickers to all of our friends and associates.
We can't wait to return for another meal, it was so good.
I love this place - their menu includes dishes from all over asia - indian lamb roti, curries, stir fries, noodle dishes, rice dishes, tons of stuff! Super cute atmosphere, and decent prices.
Why wait at Sapuros in the rain when you can walk around the corner and get deliciousness?!
Personally I think their potstickers are great. They make them with super fresh ingredients. I am a big potsticker fan, and I think these are way above the average chinese restaurant style potstickers you can get at other places.
The tandoori chicken is amazing!
Did not like it, would avoid it moving forward.. I wandered in here after arriving too late as a single for sushi around the corner. I love potstickers in general, but was woefully disappointed with Stickers. The potstickers, fried ones no less, were mushy, doughy, and devoid of identifiable flavor. The "street noodles" were equally underwhelming. I have had far better street noodles in Chinatowns for a buck or two, not $9. There is much better, cheaper Asian food in town. Stay away for now, unless they make some real changes in the food.
Pretty good stuff and cheap prices.
I boiled stickers were not as good as the fried ones. My noodles and my dates noodle dish were spicy and tasty. Not overdone and mushy like many cheap asian places. The sauce had just the right amount of hot stuff and was not overpowered by soy.
Good place. I will try it again.
This place is awesome!. A friend of mine and I found this small, quaint restaurant on Citysearch and decided to see what it was al about. We were intrigued by the idea of the food style being 'Asian' rather than one specific style. The sauces rule here. In addition to the great service the Korean Beef and Shrimp were fantastic.
rude waitress. My friend and I walked up to Stickers from my house in Eastmoreland to grab a drink. We sat outside and inquired about the happy hour. The waitress told us they had not served HH in a "long time". I know this is not true as we were there for dinner a month ago and they were still offering it. Regardless, we each ordered a drink (that we had to point out to her on the menu....gin & tonic and vodka cranberry) and the Vietnamese rolls. The food and drinks were fine but she brought our check before we were 1/2 way done with our food and drinks. THEN, before I had finished my drink she walked up to us and said in these exact words "YOU PAY CHECK NOW". I asked her if I could please finish my drink first and she said ok, but wasn't pleased. I have never felt so rushed at a restaurant....and it is not like the inside was packed. There are only 2 tables outside so not sure if some one was waiting on us, but that shouldn't have mattered! We both left there feeling very unappreciated as customers. I was surprised by this as we eat there often and have always had pleasant service. I will be searching out new places to dine after this kind of treatment!
Finally the potstickers I learned to love in China.
No wonder Stickers won Best Potsticker in Portland when it opened. I lived in northern China and have not been able to find these delicate, crisped on one side, flavorful morsels stateside---served on the streets of China and in the Chinese home on just about every Chinese occasions. Thank you !
