Aroy is a solid choice for a quick, affordable lunch downtown. Try the Tom Kah with salad rolls for a light meal before getting back to work or sightseeing.

feels like home – I have been a regular customer for over 5 years. Aroy is my favorite Thai restaurant and I definitely bring my "out of town" guests here!

The owners are wonderful cooks in addition to being friendly and welcoming. I feel I get more than just "food" when I go there.

My favorites are the Yum Woon Sen and Fried Rice.

Real Thai Taste – I'm Thai and I can guarantee that the taste of food here is the closet to the real Thai food in Thailand. Must try are "Pad Thai" and "Sukiyaki".

Best Thai restaurant downtown indeed!!

It may be one of the city's smallest Thai restaurants, but it holds its own against the big boys. – The Scene
With its no-frills decor, friendly staff and low prices, Aroy has earned a loyal following of lunchers. Get there early or late, because during prime hours the line goes out the door and chances of getting a table are slim.

The Food
It's the light sauces that are full of flavor--not oil--that set Aroy apart. The pad thai vies for Portland's best. Spiked with chicken, shrimp, bean sprouts, green onions, egg, tofu and peanuts, it explodes with tangy flavor. Chicken basil is a steaming-hot dish of lean chicken, basil leaves, mushrooms and onions in a light, fiery sauce, served over rice. Egg rolls are crisp, compact and come with a hot but sweet dipping sauce. The coconut milk soup is pungent and deeply flavorful, the broth filled with morsels of chicken, fresh mushrooms and the spice of red chili. Dinners are exceptional as well, and much less crowded.

Aroy maybe; Thai not! – I'm married to a Thai woman and spend a minimum of 2 months, each year, in Bangkok. Because of our situation, everyone asks "what's 'real' Thai?" We have been looking for such a place Portland, to share Thai cuisine.

Because of the raves, and claims of the "real deal", we tried Aroy. Unfortunately, although tasty "asian" take out, the cuisine is far from authentic Thai. It's more a Chinese variant, complete with chopsticks!

Aroy (delicious) maybe; Authentic Thai,... not!

Middle of Thai Road – Aroy Thai is the Portland Thai food equivalent of a great diner: an honest meal at a great price. Tucked into a downtown hole-in-the-wall, it will never win any decorating contests, but during a hectic downtown lunch hour Aroy comes through with solid Thai. Despite many claims, it's not the best pad thai in town, but it's right up there. And they offer vegetarian -- which can be surprisingly difficult in popular Asian cuisine. Best of all chile-heads can challenge themselves to Aroy's spice rankings: from 1 to 20 stars. Most people don't go over 4, but you'll love pushing the envelope. Solid.

True Thai!!!!!! – The most authentic thai food restaurant in town with the friendliest mom/pop atmosphere! Better take cash or a check with you because no credit accepted (the only drawback). Honestly, we spent 2 weeks in Thailand last year and the food is identical!!! Honest, caring and personable staff! Pad Thai is "the real thing"- not an American spinn off! Just delightful people and fabulous food! You can't go wrong!!!
