The food was excellent and the portions huge. We had a beef lamb, red duck curry, pad Thai, and sautéed fish in a sweet spicy sauce. The taste was authentic and we ordered spiciest at number 4 - spicy ranging from 1-10 and it was spicy enough for the whole party. Enough food to take home and feed 2 more... More

Probably the best Thai restaurant in Escondido, but not the best in North County. In particular, I had the basic yellow curry which was festooned with golf ball sized pieces of potatoes. Moreover, the amount of carrots was also a nuisance. My partner had a spicy shrimp dish which she said was quite good. There were plenty of shrimp in... More

First time visit while staying in Escondido. My husband and I both had the yellow curry chicken. Portions are generous, the service outstanding. The waitress was very helpful in determining the level of "hot" for us which resulted in being just perfect. We've tried Thai restaurants in Arizona and California and the food at Panya excels. It was so good,... More

This was our first family weekend in Escondido because we were visiting the San Diego Safari Park. We had no idea where to go for dinner, but looked this up on TripAdvisor. Based on the reviews, we decided to give this place a try. The food here is amazing! We ordered Green Curry with Sole, Sweet & Sour Veggies, Eggplant... More

This was the second visit for us at this restaurant. This time around the service was excellent; however, the food lackluster. The spice level asked for was a 4, but upon tasting, it was more like a 6. The noodles in the see-ew seemed to be chopped up and very minimal in the dish. The pineapple fried rice, which had... More

Dinner, Veggie dishes, White rice, sumptuous, quick service, friendly service. Would love to have lunch or dinner again. If one doesn't normally eat spicy hot food, be sure to order "Mild" and not "Medium"! One would certainly enjoy the food at "Panaya Thai". Get a brief on the dishes before ordering.

We get food here at least three times a month. The food is always good and the staff is friendly. Can't ask for a better experience!

Some of the best Thai food in North County. Reasonably priced it has become a family favorite. We normally do take out but the interior looks clean and the servers are fast and friendly.

Visited this attractive Thai restaurant on my trip to Escondido at lunch time and found the Tom Yum Mixed Seafood Hotpot the best I ever encountered here in the States. Had to go back the next day and ordered a bowl of the same along with the Crispy Duck on a bed of crispy noodles, lathered with chili-basil sauce and... More
