My Thai Beach: Exotic Food at the Ocean

This unexpected, exotic little place is tucked into the Capitola Village restaurants on the beach. The restaurant is small and casual, typically Asian in its decor. I ordered spring rolls, rice and an entree. The spring rolls were good. The ingredients were fresh and the presentation was... read more

Based upon reviews, I expected more thai cuisine. There were two on the menu, the rest basically were curry dishes. The meal was good. The place is a bit run down and needs a thorough cleaning.

We ate here after a recommendation from a local shop employee. It was very good thai food. One man was serving and cooking at the time, but he was so polite. Great service and the pumpkin curry was unique and delicious.

I found a fly at the bottom of Tom kah. Luckily the extra protein was a great addition. Unfortunately I wasn't extremely excited about the addition so I went to get a refund, that they obliged to. Usually great so I was disappointed.

We have been coming to beautiful Capitola for years but always missed this place. I won't walk past it again. The best Thai food ever!

We were a little worried when it was empty but I have no idea why there is not a line outside waiting to get in. Great dinner!!!

I am giving it overall 4 stars because the food was good but the price was great! Three bucks for each order. We got some food to go on 4th of July while we were playing at the beach. The food was good, not great, but for the price you can not beat it. Could fed the whole family of... More

Thai food is my favorite, but it's hard to find good Thai food. This little place on the beach in Capitola is surprisingly great. Sometimes a tourist location means that the food doesn't have to be good, but that is not the case here. Two sisters from Thailand started the restaurant and the food is delicious! The only reason I... More

Hubby doesn't like hot and spicy but this was really good and we both enjoyed the food. There was a guy playing guitar which was very nice addition to the dining experience.

My wife and I went here and we love thai food and this place sized up to our standards. The price was right. The restaurant is right on the water, however only a few tables are by the windows. But the food is great. Go here, you will not be disappointed.
