About Us

The Itti Family

Where did the Itti’s come from? We moved to Central Oregon from the very tip of the Olympic Peninsula – just a ferry ride away from Seattle, WA in a little town called Port Townsend. In PT, you can find our first Thai restaurant, Khu Larb Thai, where we’ve been open for nearly 30 years now.

What is Northern Thai Food?

Traditionally a very rural cuisine, Northern Thai food is an experience for all five senses. We never frown on using your hands as utensils – just don’t expect chopsticks here!

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.

Sorry folks, no Pad Thai here either.

Our 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 – so have some fun while you’re our guest!

Chiang Mai is near and dear to our hearts, which means every dish crafted at the Wild Rose comes from a family recipe.

Paul, Ampawan, Rosie & Tyler

A Friendly Disclaimer

To all our wonderful diners,

It makes me truly happy, having achieved my goal of introducing homestyle Northern Thai cooking at the Wild Rose; hearing comments like, “My mother is also from Prae [a city in Northern Thailand] and your cooking reminds me of her.”

Or in the case of our friend and customer, Eddy, who tried my special pork blood soup and said to me, “The last time I tasted anything like this was 20 years ago back in my hometown in Southeast Asia. Thank you again for reminding me of home, Paul.”

Family recipes mean we are preparing the same dish that you might find in Chiang Mai, but we cook it the way our family loves to eat it – more lemongrass, less coconut milk, etc. At the Wild Rose, you are enjoying decades of recipes from my family, and this is what makes our dishes special. Our passion is to share the food that we love with all of you, which is why we respectably choose not to serve the dishes found in other Thai restaurants that some may be more familiar with.

Instead of inquiring about Pad Thai, or something with peanut sauce, we urge you to step out of your comfort zone a little bit and try something like our creamy egg noodle curry soup called Khao Soi. Think of our restaurant as a friend’s home, join us for a meal and learn about a new culture. Nothing haunts us like the things we did not order.

Enjoy,

Paul Itti
