You walk into a well decorated restaurant…elegant and not overstated so you feel relaxed no matter how you are dressed. We were greeted by our server quickly and they seemed delighted to take care of you. We ordered the chicken & beef satay, the pagoda salad and the pad see ew with beef. All tasted like very fresh ingredients were... More

Quite a reasonable walk from downtown/prospect and the main restaurant area, but well worth the walk, in an unassuming block Chedi is a great find! Very welcoming staff, excellent food, super large portions (perhaps too large?), and REALLY good value, but for the location, portion sizes and the slightly rushed service, this place would get a 5 star rating from...

I dined at Chedi the other day for the first time and the food and service was wonderful. I had the crispy calamari and the steak with the red curry sauce. Both were delicious. Plus the price was quite reasonable. In addition, the service was great and friendly. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

This is the best Thai restaurant in San Diego, in my opinion. Even the drinks are special. Pia is a wonderful owner and chef and she always makes sure everyone is happy. We'll keep coming back. Thank you to all at Chedi Thai!

We often have dinner at this restaurant . It's great value for the money. The food is very authentic, delicious, the presentation appealing, service friendly and attentive. I love the white linen table cloths and appealing decor. We have happily become "regulars" here!

we frequently visit this place when in La Jolla. Authentic very nice Thai cuisine, interesting decor and packed with locals make this place a real gem. Wines are a bit pricey - if you order a bottle make sure they understand (as most people only order glasses). Service was attentive and solved issues professional - open till 10pm Recommended!!

Very good curry and Pad Thai. The Pra Ram was good but I have had better. They seemed to be having a little trouble with enough waiters the first night we were there but the food was good enough for us to return. The service was just fine then.

Very lovely looking restaurant, gracious service, and quick! The food was good+, not quite excellent, though. Had to ask for chili sauce, which arrived on an elegant little relish tray with 2 additional condiments. The décor is very pleasing except for the colored lights in the ceiling lanterns. They were distracting, along with the synthesized Muzak. Otherwise, it was good.... More
