    Stick with the classic chicken and rice. Tofu and rice with house made peanut sauce is texturally nauseating.

    #1 mixed and some of that bomb-ass lime water. All. Day. Long.

    Tables are often in high demand here. So if you're in a group, try to get one person to order while the other snags a table.

    Chicken rice Must try for a Portland visitor; better than what I've had in Singapore. Piset size perfect for a couple sharing

    Nice place for a quick snack (very casual). Peanut sauce is great! Thai ice coffee tastes like Nescafe though.

    Simple, but delicious, consistent, and affordable. Don't forget you can get extra chicken vs. PiSize (larger) if you don't really want more rice. If you get the #1, get a side of veggies - broccoli.

    More options at this location but as the name suggests, you really should be getting the delicious khao man gai. The rice is rich and the chicken is tender. I enjoyed the side of livers as well.

    Classic Hainan chicken over rice dish the Thai way. Authentic, casual and unpretentious. I felt like I was in Asia again! Complimentary ginger tea and lime infused water. Nong was a charming person.

    The chicken and rice of course. Get extra sauce. This is one of my favorite restaurants I have ever been to (after coming here 2 years ago and dreaming about it since). That sauce... Oh that sauce

    Khao Man Gai (chicken and rice #1) with double meat costs less than the Piset size… and you're not drowning in extra rice.

    Simple Thai spot. Don't expect your typical curry and pad Thai here. They're more known for their rice dishes.

    Bland boring food. Tiny portion for the price. Awful take out bags that rip open the moment you step outside. No parking and ugly inside.

    So delicious. As good of chicken as it gets. The coconut ice cream has to be in the bracket for best ice cream in Portland.

    I'm gonna commit heresy and tell you to get the pork instead of the chicken. But if you don't, get extra sauce, chicken livers and fried skin added. Pickles are also delightful.

    Of course, Nong's addictive signature dish, a Thai take on Hainan chicken, takes center stage, here and at Nong's two food cart locations, at SW Alder and at the PSU cart pod. [Eater 38 Member]
