Great Thai Food in Cozy Setting

The Thai Kitchen is not much bigger than just a kitchen, but the food is excellent and the service was very good. We like the intimate atmosphere and authentic Thai dishes. We especially enjoy dinners here.

but not our favorite in the area. I think they might do better if they were to concentrate on service a little

Not much to look at from the outside (blink and you might miss it), but once inside its clean and the service attentive. Helpful and eager to offer suggestions. The food was fresh and tasty. The wonton soup had just the right amount of fresh ginger and perfectly cooked veggies. The chicken curry panang was rich and delicious. My husbands... More

There is the usual Thai menu, dishes can be ordered plain or spicy. Service is excellent. It's a humble place, bit of a hole in the wall but excellent value for money with good food. You probably would not take a date there for dinner to impress her/him.

This is a family-run little hole-in-the-wall. I love it. I'm stuck on always ordering their Curry dishes but my wife has tried many others ... never dissappointed.

I meet a friend here for lunch every 4-6 weeks. Very good inexpensive lunch menu in a very basic ambiance for a small restaurant. The service is always very good.

Not amazing ambiance jsut because it's so small and simple but food is very good and service is always pleasant and timely. We live in the neighborhood and frequent here often. I would recommend it.

The place is small, the food was not so good, and the prices were a little high for what we got. Seems to be busy enough most of the time, but we tried twice, and were disappointed both times. The Thai place in Pismo is much better.

This is one of my favorite local restaurants, as it is walking distance from the village and is always open. Panang Curry w/ chicken is delish. The Thai food almost compares to some of the San Diego Thai restaurants that I've come to love so much.
