Imaginitve Thai & quite reasonable

If you come for the happy hour menu, you will find an extensive list of wonderful starters. Pairing several of these, with one or two larger portion items will make a most enjoyable meal at a reasonable price. The service has always been very friendly and attentive.

We were walking down to the beach and passed this bistro. They were just ready to open at 12 noon on a Sunday. Am I glad we went in. We took a chance on an unknown restaurant and we had a delicious lunch. All five of us ordered different dishes and each one of us loved what we ordered. They... More

While not nearly the best Thai food I've had, the food and prices are decent. Try the Pad Thai or any of the curries, and the soups are good too. The staff is not the friendliest, but they're helpful.

Chedi Thai Bistro maintains longevity in the bustling La Jolla restaurant partly from its authentic Thai furnishings that create a clean modern look and central Pearl street location. The julienned Green Papaya Salad with tomato and long bean was good. The Pad Thai with Shrimp was not so good because it was a tad on the oily side. And sadly,... More

We visited Chedi with another couple and it happened to be Happy Hour (5-7pm daily) and we did not end up ordering anything off the main menu. With 2 rounds of drinks and the happy hour dishes, we spent $60 after tip for 4 of us. The food was very good. More imoportantly, we had a couple of items that... More

Very nice restaurant in a prime location, away from the hustle and bustle of downtown La jolla. If ya can't find parking in back the park across the street at the Vons market.

Chedi Thai is conveniently located on Pearl st. It can be a challenge to find parking near by. The decor is very nice, modern with some good Thai accents. We had the set lunch where you can pick 2 appetizers (mainly soup, salads and spring rolls) and 1 main course. Although there are all pretty standard thai dishes, they are... More

We got a to-go order tonight and it was fantastic. Previously we have ordered food here that was often too spicy, but the owner really accommodated our preferences and they delivered outstanding food for us to take home. We ordered chicken skewers which were beautifully moist and not overcooked, chicken pad Thai that was loaded with chicken, Green chicken curry... More

Service was nice. Our server had somewhat broken english but served us flawlessly and attentively. Location was good, though several blocks from the ocean and the La Jolla activity. That actually made it a bit quieter (we went there as a second option to a restaurant that was just way to busy/noisy/slow). We had: - Crispy Curry Chicken as an... More
