    My 50th Triple D stop! I chose this one for this epic milestone as I've heard so much about chef Andy Ricker. From DDD to No Reservations, he seems to get mentioned on everything. I tried the boar collar and Vietnamese Wings, mom got the soup that Guy featured as I remember him saying it wasn't spicy. She wasn't a big fan, though was first trying Thai food for both of us, and I don't think she gave it a chance since she got phone call mid way though dinner and went outside to take the call. I however sat and enjoyed the wings and boar collar. Thought it was very interesting, and it wasn't as spicy as they made it sound it would be. We both loved the building though and atmosphere. We thought was cool how he just turned his house into a restaurant and kept adding to it as the restaurant got bigger and bigger. I was worried we'd be waiting forever for a seat since we went at peak dinner time and I've heard it is hard to get in. But they had some stools right up front towards the hostess stand with a bar open. We took them right away and I think it added to the experience for me. The servers were also great, really helping out with the menu and making sure my mom didn't get the spicy stuff.

    I don't know why this place is considered a dive, and it's not a drive-in, or diner, and even though it was a moderately priced dinner for 3, I would definitely still recommend it to anyone.  We tried the boar, the brussel sprouts, and the catfish salad, with ample portions of both rices, and everything was amazing.  Again, we weren't expecting to pay as much before we went in, but the prce was worth it for the ambiance and the taste of everything.  The only thing negative I'd have to say was that the staff seemed begrudgingly helpful to first-timers.

    Went there with a group of friends. 2 meat eaters and 2 vegetarians. The meat vegetarians had a really good looking soup that came highly recommended by our waiter(who apparently lived in Thialand for almost 3 years). The meat eaters had the chicken stuffed with lemongrass and other good stuff, their Vietnamese chicken wings, and the boars collar. I do a lot of travelling all over the country with my job, and this honestly is one of the 2 or 3 best meals I have ever had. The flavor in that boar is unlike anything I have ever had before. I could eat it until I got sick. The other 2 dishes I had were good but that boar was just unreal! I highly recommend that dish if u go there. It is well worth the wait! Enjoy!!

    I was on my way to PDX for a conference and saw Pok Pok on triple D. I had the Boar collar and took the Vietnamese wings back to my hotel. I sat at the bar outside as we had a late summer in the NW and it wasd not only a great atmosphere but the food was absolutely outstanding. Oh, and no utensils needed! Mustard greens to grab your boar collar and sticky rice. A singha to wash it down and doesn't get any better! Don't pass this one up if you like Thai and very flavor packed cuisine.

    Great food, best with a group so you can try many dishes. The fish sauce chicken wings and paypaya pok pok are memorable.

    Kudos to leaving Pad Thai off the menu!  That fact alone should speak volumes to any true Thai food explorer.
