Love Thai, really loved Rim Talay Thai

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... read 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.

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

Not sure what all the fuss is about average at best. There are about six tables in this place and no air conditioning. Every appetizer they have is fried. Tom yum soup had no flavor and chicken curry was not that great. There have to be better Thai places in Oceanside.

Tucked away on a side street, this unassuming little place serves great food! My partner and I ordered the Thai Curry with a choice of shrimp, chicken, or tofu. It was served with crunchy potato dumplings, a small salad, and a choice of brown or white rice. The coconut and spicy flavors in the curry were wonderful!

Met friends for dinner here and we all were well pleased with the food. Fresh rolls, main dishes, and mango & sticky rice were enjoyed by all!
