A nice quiet lunch with a good view on a slow weekday. We were glad to go and return again. The proprietor is doing a good job.

The temperature heat was scorching hot which is exactly the way I liked it. Service was excellent and overhaul a very very happy satisfied... More

We stopped in late on a rainy Sunday evening. The owner was most courteous and made the most delicious meal ever! We were the only customers that late and we were treated very well. We could tell it had been a very busy day for this restaurant and we were most likely the last customers of the day, yet we... More

My first time in Capitola, and I spied a Thai restaurant on the Main Street. My Thai Beach offered everything we could've wanted. Sat at a beach window, watching the tide roll in, and ordered from a pretty extensive menu. Both my wife and I loved the food - a find even in a larger two, and the service was... More

The pad thai was good, though could have been a bit spicier. Decent pineapple fried rice too. The beef dish was way overcooked though, the sauce was decent. Good satays. Really nice crispy vegetable spring rolls. We ordered too much, but nothing was terribly disappointing.

We were visiting in the Capitola area and love Thai food so we decided on My Thai Beach for dinner. A few things I noticed that scared me a bit was the dirty trim work and the bathroom was dirty and smelled of urine. Normally if it is just my husband and me, I would have immediately hi-tailed it out... More

We called in to collect a takeaway and were ignored for quite a while even though we could see our food was ready and waiting. No apology for this but we paid and took the food. On the plus side, all the dishes we ordered were very tasty from chicken satay starters to pad Thai and red and green curries.... More

The guy working the register and waiting was very friendly and obliging, however the wait for the food was long, I ordered the fried sweet potato and they were regular potatoes (huge difference in taste, I ordered because I wanted the sweet potato), the green curry was a little different because I've never had it with cabbage, asparagus and big...

Had the Tom Yum here, we liked it, they made it more spicy as we requested. Was enough for two people. Service was just great, no complaints. Hope they get some help, felt bad for the guy cooking solo in the back, looks like he hasn't sleep in months. If you go here with a larger group, keep in mind... More

They have the best Thai food in town! Tom Kha Soup is so flavorful. We ordered a small and it was enough to feed us. Pad Thai with Shrimp was one of the best I've ever. It was beautifully presented. The waitress was very nice. She gave us Thai ice tea on the house.
