Extremely basic but delicious food. The chicken was like a succulent rotisserie chicken but without the skin. Whatever their house sauce is, is delicious. They wrap the chicken in paper with some sticky rice. Tastes like a really good street car meal.

Looked up places to eat in Portland and this came up so I decided to give it a try. Was not disappointed, ordered Khao Man Gai and sat down. Within 5 minutes the food was out and flavor is amazing. I've been to many restaurants in Boston, NYC and Philadelphia that are similar in style serving limited menu items but are amazing. This was up there with those restaurants, the dipping sauce they give is perfect and the choice between white and dark meat is a great touch. Rice and soup it came with were great, the simplicity of the dish and the flavor it gives you is worth the visit. I would come back here when back in Portland again.

Chicken and rice sounds so basic but it is so good here. The preparation and the sauce elevate it to out of this world levels. I've had it in Thailand and this is the only place I've found it in the U.S. You can buy the sauce to take home. I'd go here weekly if I lived in Portland.

I added Nong's to my list of places to check out while visiting Portland because 1. I saw it on multiple travel sites 2. My sister had tried it a few years back and said it was really good. We popped in on a Saturday at around 3 pm and it was still pretty packed at that time, especially for a non-peak lunch hour. We ordered the original Khao Man Gai (regular size) to share between me and my husband. It comes wrapped in a paper with size of broth and their dipping sauce. It was pretty good, especially the sauce but was it $13 good? That I don't know. It's also something you need to eat right away because it comes out piping hot. If you eat it later, the steam would probably overcook the chicken. Glad I got the chance to try it but also glad we only got one order.

Usually you have a nicely sliced piece of chicken breast. Yet, the last few times it is a small piece of chicken with lots of strange nibbles as if from the bottom of the pot. If I’m being honest, it is all the reminders and looked like a pile of scraps. Not sure how I drew the luck twice but it does show the quality is going down. Not sure if I should go back.

We love it, though the restaurant felt a bit cramping, and the line was long, but the food was worth it!

We were only in Portland for 2 days and had this twice - so yummy! We had the KMG regular size and had the large portion when we went back the second time. Also bought 2 bottles of their delicious sauce to bring home!

I wasn't sure why it was so busy. The poached chicken was very tender but for the sauce it was pretty bland. The seating is overly tight.

I really don’t understand what the fuss is about this place. It’s not bad but it’s just bland chicken over bland rice which were both kinda dry. The best part was the sauce but that doesn’t make everything else magical. Maybe because this was nowhere close to the ones we had in Singapore which was sooooo good. The chicken was so tender that it literally melt in your mouth. Rice was so flavorful in chicken broth and oil. In Singapore the sauce was soy sauce based. If you are into this dish, go to Singapore! It’s really life changing. Even the ones in New York at Nyonya is much better.

We ate at the one location during our Portland trip in Downtown and decided to try this location so we could taste the pork and rice dish since they didn’t have it at the location on 13th Street. They have the same basic menu here but just add the pork. Again in the spirit of eating our way through Portland, we ordered the chicken and rice, pork and rice and two sides of chicken skin. The chicken is basically a poached chicken with rice cooked in chicken broth served with a light chicken broth. It’s also known as Hainanese chicken. You can choose to is order a small or big portion. It doesn’t look appetizing and looks pretty plain but it definitely surprises you with tender pieces of chicken and flavor when eaten the right way. It served with a sauce with soy, garlic, vinegar, and chili oil. This location has a small fridge with fresh garlic, chili oil and sweet thick soy sauce that you can mix together to eat with your meal. As for the pork, it is shredded and flavored with Coca Cola, cocoa powder and Chinese herbs. It had a hint of sweetness from the soda and it’s served on a bed of rice and a hard boiled egg. I still liked the chicken dish much better. For the chicken skins it’s not cooked fresh, given at the counter when you order and served in a paper bag like chips. Restaurant is much larger than the other location with a few tables outside but inside the tables are pretty crammed together. Service is quick after you order at the counter and have a seat. Like most restaurants in Portland you bus your own the table so tables turn pretty quickly. Location is further away from downtown Portland.

Chicken + rice was perfectly cooked and the sauce was delicious. However, I do think this place is slightly over hyped as at the end of the day it is just chicken and rice.

A one-dish restaurant but what a dish! This is a small place with mostly counter seating on high stools with a few booths. I’m guessing they do a lot of takeout. You get chicken mounded on rice with a bowl of soup and a few cucumbers and coriander sprigs and sauce on the side. There are extras available but this is the staple order. There is even a gluten free version. You can buy a bottle of the sauce. Just dig in and enjoy!

Stopped at the brick & mortar shop. The food is very simple, but very fresh and flavorful. Nice way to try this out would be ordering the first menu item and sharing. Great poached chicken.
