Let's be honest: Bend drew an Ace when Wild Rose opened downtown. Everyone loves the place because you can play this card multiple different ways. The cozy, eclectic atmosphere is inviting for any occasion. You could bring your mom, have a business meeting, or go on a Tinder date and you'd still feel right at home. There are fresh roses on each table and dried bunches hanging overhead. The simple menu is accommodating to vegetarians, while at the same time serving authentic northern Thai food. The large chalkboard wall next to the bar highlights their specials, so you know they keep it fresh, and tasty. With such well-balanced flavor profiles, it's clear the kitchen is staffed with talent. Pair the food with your favorite Thai-inspired craft cocktail from the tiny bar and you'll feel like a queen (or king). It's easy to see why Bendites chose Wild Rose for best Thai two years in a row. All told, it's an affordable spot in the heart of town that has that magical Bend feeling — you know, the one that says we are doing what we love in our own way.
