According to an ancient Thai proverb, “Fish eat ants at high tide, ants eat fish at low tide, and behold, suddenly I am struck with great hunger.” Follow an incomplete proverb to the dinner table with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Thai cuisine and drinks at E-San Thai Cuisine, located in downtown Portland.

Owned and operated by husband-and-wife team Mao and Ting, E-San prepares rich cultural cuisine from Thailand’s Issan region. The extensive dinner menu consists of tasty tod, pad, and yum options that are distinctively Thai with Laotian influences. After an appetizer such as the deep-fried thai fish cake with cucumber sauce ($6), extend your tongue toward the yum goong salad, which features boiled shrimp prepared with tomatoes, onions, lime juice, and lemongrass ($10). Then, feast on the roasted duck curry, a serving of quacker cooked with red curry sauce, pineapple chunks, bamboo, and other greens ($13.50). Mao and Ting spend their mornings chasing down the day’s culinary necessities, ensuring that each menu item is prepared with nimble fingers and crisp, fresh ingredients.

  • I go there for fun and business meetings.  The Pad Prik King is absolutely delicious and I can't get enough of it.  – serra s., Yelp, 08/09/2010
  • When I think of the best Pad Thai I've ever had -- aside from my late grandmother's recipe -- I know of one place. That's E-San Thai, for sure! – Bunn S., Yelp, 12/24/2010
