I will not return to this restaurant. I love Thai food, but I like to eat good Thai- not so so food. The place is really run down. The seats are torn and old. There is no AC in the place, or the owner is too cheap to turn on. The waitress seem embarrassed by the condition of the booths.... More

So-so service, so-so food. Pricey for the meal. I love Thai food, this was not great. The waitress did not ask me how spicy I wanted my Drunken Noodle, the food was rather bland compared to a good Thai dish. Noodles were stuck together, overcooked as was the entire dish. Disappointing. There were only 2 other people i the place... More

As you walk in there is no type of comforting welcome! There is one person working and doing a 3 persons job..then as you get seated you get the menu thrown at you, taking awhile to order, menu is not properly explained. Not even asking " what would you like to drink"! The best is saved for last...not being aware... More

This restaurant was awesome! Among a myriad of Mexican restaurants and burger joints, you would not expect to find this place in the heart of downtown Chula Vista. Excellent service and the atmosphere is very fitting for a Thai establishment. Try the red curry with chicken.... outstanding food! And Thai iced tea is good with any meal. Highly recommend this...

Went for lunch with my partner. Shared larb. Green chile sauce with calamari and topped it all off, with fried banana and green tea ice cream. It was great. You can name how spicy you want it from one to ten. And the food was really good. Will return.

That's why I go to this restaurant. I went there for mother's day. My family loved it. The steak is great! The "see you noodles" is good. The dessert is the amazing, the banana frozen spring roll is the best. I recommend to here on special occasions or just to enjoy a really good meal.

My wife and I walked past this wonderful, little Thai restaurant on Third Avenue several times before giving it a try -- now we eat there every week or two. Admitedly, we haven't gotten past the Tom Yum soup with shrimp, the Pad Thai and the many delicious curry combinations, but when you savor every bite of your favorite dishes,... More
