First time at this place. We were not there at the peak of lunch hour, so, the service was very fast and very courteous. I had the Basil and Garlic Stir Fry with chicken, the bell peppers, carrots, and onions were cooked to perfection. My companion was very pleased with the Sweet and Sour stir fry. For desert we really... More

Having never eaten Thai food before, I didn't know what to expect. I ordered the Pad Thai and we shared an appetizer platter. All the food on the platter was excellent. I poured the leftover sauce on the Pad Thai as it was a bit bland for my taste. With the spicy sauce, it was delicious. Everyone seems to thoroughly... More

VERY average pad thai, ok Tom ka. I'll be heading across the street next time I crave thai food. The servers were nice but slow and the location is great, but nothing any of us had was even close to excellent.

Went w/ friends & family (3 adults 4 kids) in the late afternoon / evening. Ordered a few appetizers and few entries to share between everyone. The food was good. Actually - very good. NOTHING was left... Service was friendly & pretty fast, with one small mishap on plain noodles, but our order was placed in a few rounds so... More

My friend and I came here and we're both pleased. The food was delicious and the service was great. You can choose how spicy you want your curry which is perfect. Can't wait to go back!

We has a great meal at this restaurant. The food was authentic Thai and the service was excellent. The Merlot wine was very palatable and complimented the food well. A great meal out if you are in the area. The Gluten free options were also available and did not detract from the other excellent menu options.

Great lunch specials at Rim Talay Thai , from $6.95 up !! We tried 3 different lunch specials, all where good ! The won ton that came with it was fried, with a curried flavor. We liked it. It was also served with the main dish ordered and a small salad, with a peanut flavored dressing. The Thai iced tea... More

I'm a big fan of Thai food, so when we were trying to decide where to eat on our first night in Oceanside, we took a short trip up the Coastal Highway to Rim Talay Thai. We were greeted cordially by Noi, a wonderful server. My parents were with me, and Mom and Dad both had some questions—which she answered... More

This has always been my wife's favorite. Our last visit on a Saturday night was less than memorable. We had to seat ourselves and did not get a visit for over 15 minutes. Then the food took forever. When I commented to the waitress she said they were busy and a lot of take out business. Our food was not... More
