Service was very fast in particular for a party of 12. Food was served HOT. Several servers worked to get the food delivered in a timely manner. The flavor was very good as always. Thai Peacock is one of the best for flavor. The music was too loud, so we were short of shouting our conversations. The common dining area is way too tight, but the back room for larger parties is pretty comfortable. The service post meal was very efficient with table clearing quite timely. A very positive lunch experience.

Good Thai food at reasonable prices. Restaurant gets busy and loud during popular times. Takes reservations and credit cards. Nobody in my group disliked their food, and we all tried something different. Service could be scattered.

Thai Peacock is no less then my favorite restaurant in Portland. I've introduced my work-mates to this place and now they all love it. We go there for lunch outings and we've never been let down.

We love the ambiance of the main seating section. Walking into the front door, you are presented with a scene of good music, a bar, and a staircase to the upstairs seating area. Crystal chandeliers hang over all and present a good vibe.

However, if you are in a group of 6, or if the main room and upstairs are full, you will be herded away to a back room where there is no ambiance. It might as well be a business conference room. You feel totally isolated and disconnected from the restaurant you thought you were in. The wait staff also forgets about you! Forget about ordering another drink—you’ll be done with your meal before a server strolls in remembering that you’re there.

Being seated upstairs or in the main floor dining room is a class act 5-star fun eating experience. Don’t let them put you in the back room.

My advice to the restaurant is to knock out that wall and enlarge the main seating area.

I am the Organizer of the PDX Matinee Moviegoers. Thai Peacock is one of our favorite restaurants, especially after seeing a movie at Living Room Theaters, across the street. We are usually seated in the back room, where we can enjoy our food while we talk about the movies we've seen.

Very rude staff! We were not given a very warm welcome when we entered the restaurant. We had made a reservation a couple of weeks in advance since we were celebrating my daughter’s graduation. Our server was very rude when I told her the bathroom did not have toilet paper. She acted like I was inconveniencing her. She took our order pretty much the same way. The food was okay but she never bothered to check to see if we needed anything. Since we were a large party, the 18% tip was automatically included so this would explain why she didn’t even try to provide good service. Nothing was done or said about the special occasion. It also happened to be Father’s Day and our large party included three fathers but there was nothing mentioned to them either. There are a ton of restaurants in Portland, so there is no need to plan a return visit here!

Awesome food, quick and delicious. We were a party of 10, seated in special room which was quiet although lacking a bit from the louder more pleasant main dining room. Still one of the best Thai restaurants. Servers recommendations were terrific. Be warned though. Their medium is what most Thai restaurants would call Hot.

Food is amazing. Almost the best Thai we have ever eaten. The service could be better (friendlier). We were a family of 7 and one of our childrens food arrived after everyone else at the table was finished eating. In many American restaurants, a good manager would not charge for that late dish.
The ambience was nice, cozy, and clean.

A good choice for simple Thai food in the downtown area. The food was good, service friendly. We had a group of 12, yet the food came out promptly and was all quite tasty.

Ordered for chicken but was served pork. Had just 4 adults to dine in and 2 kids . Was charged a gratuity of 18% and was incorrectly mentioned as a party of 6+.
Left a tip of 5 dollars and that was charged to 9 dollars when I saw my posted cc card transaction. This is not acceptable. I will never visit this place again and will never recommend any of my friends.

We reserved on open table but somehow they lost our reservation. Despite that, they quickly found room for our party of 8. The service seemed a bit put off and we had to repeat our order and send items back as they were not what we ordered. Once we did get our food, it was wonderful.

Be careful if you bring a group to the Thai Peacock. The restaurant is great. Amazing setting, beautiful lighting and the food was very, very good and reasonably priced. The staff was great. However, we booked a large group and they put us in the back room. It felt like we were eating in a warehouse. If you go with a small group, ask for the balcony, it is the best spot in the place.

When I called to confirm my Open Table reservation, they said they do not accept reservations made online and took my name and reservation again (even though their Facebook page says you can make reservations there, too!) Food and atmosphere were awesome.

My wife and I had an enjoyable dinner upon the recommendation of our hotel concierge. We live in the Washington DC area which has a lot of good Thai restaurants. We would come here at least monthly if we lived in Portland. The food is absolutely authentic. They manage their spice hotness to each customer's tastes. All of the traditional Thai curry and pad dishes are on the menu. The family-owned restaurant styles itself as offering Thai "comfort food" and we agree. The restaurant is about three blocks from Powell's Books and just a half block south of Burnside between the Pearl and Southwest districts. We didn't count the number of tables but we did sit upstairs which offers a loft-like view of the downstairs area. There seemed to be a nice mix of local and tourist patrons so this is a neighborhood gem for sure, not a tourist trap. Prices are reasonable. If you are reading this review you probably already like Thai food -- you won't be disappointed
