Wild Rose Thai is located in the heart of Downtown Bend, Oregon and is a local favorite. Traditionally a very rural cuisine, Northern Thai food is an experience for all five senses. The folks at Wild Rose Thai never frown on using your hands as utensils – just don’t expect chopsticks when you visit them.
The most significant difference with Northern Thai fair is that nearly every meal is accompanied with ‘khao niew’, sticky Jasmine rice meant for eating with your hands. Best enjoyed when formed into small croquettes, the sticky rice is dipped in the fresh chili pastes and sauces that are most prominent in Chiang Mai and its surrounding areas. Fresh and crunchy vegetables are served with every sauce, dip, and paste. That means no Pad Thai here either.
The Wild Rose Thai menu is not divided into courses, but rather into separate categories that make up a complete traditional Northern Thai meal. Dishes are prepared for sharing, and we encourage mixing & matching menu items. A Northern Thai meal is a communal event – the more you share, the tastier your dishes are. Chiang Mai is near and dear to Wild Rose Thai hearts, which means every dish crafted at the Wild Rose comes from a family recipe.
