Italian | Downtown, Portland

Amazing! Loved the layback but fancy vibe. As a gal from Boston I wanted a lengthy dining experience without being rushed with really delicious food and I got exactly what I was looking for! The pasta was filling but didn’t make me feel bloated or gross afterward! I got espresso coffee after dinner and it was SO delicious. All the wine is great. I love this place. More

American | Downtown, Portland

As usual, the food and service were wonderful. This visit, we had the breakfast sandwich. While it may seem like a simple standard egg sandwich, the flavor profile was fantastic. Each ingredient complimented the other and it filled us up for an afternoon of shopping without being weighed down. The Madagascar vanilla bean latte was slightly sweet and enhanced the espresso without the added sugars. I don't drink lattes often, but enjoyed it thoroughly. More

We so enjoyed spending the evening with John and (Doug?) and eating their amazing food! I learned a lot about the food and my foodie husband was beyond thrilled with the ramps dish. Our only complaint was that there was TOO MUCH food! Ha! More

Indian | Bend, Bend / Deschutes County

Located in Downtown Bend, Mantra Indian Cuisine is the finest Indian food in Central Oregon.

Established in May of 2017, Mantra was the longtime vision of Jassey Uppal and Arun "Runi" Srikantaiah. For years, Jassey crafted delicious chick pea and chicken curries at the Butler Market Store. Arun has run the popular mobile food cart "The Curry Shack" for several successful years. The vision for Mantra was to create a modern, fast casual Indian restaurant that will please anyone looking for flavorful Indian cuisine. More

Nam Tok KitchenNam Tok Kitchen

Thai | Bend, Bend / Deschutes County

Nam Tok means “waterfall” in Thai and Lao. It’s also the name of our signature dish. Since we live in Deschutes county, and “des chutes” means “falls” we thought this was an appropriate name. Our focus is Northern Thai food, and Lao food from the region that Lee, the brains behind the food, was raised with. As a rule, the food tends to have more fish sauce, and be more savory than the sweeter dishes from southern Thailand. Thai food tends to be very Americanized and it is our wish to share with you the food that we are accustomed to. We hope that you will really enjoy this experience rather than the run-of-the-mill Thai food.More
