You Won't Be Disappointed!

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... read 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.

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!

I love Thai food and the Rim Talay could definitely convince me with theirs. They had a special lunch menu and you could choose how spicy you want your dish!

I went to dinner with my almost 90 year-old Father and retired elder brother night before last. I was really looking forward to a good curry. I have been to Rim Talay probably a half dozen times. Mostly for lunch and a couple times for dinner. The food is always good. My Father's chow mein was so-so according to him... More

This is a cozy little restaurant with good Thai food. It decorated with authentic Thai design. The staff is very friendly. It is worth a visit.

So I come to this place on a regular basis and I have NEVER been disappointed. This is a husband and wife run restaurant and I believe they have family working here as well. I have ordered at least 10 different items on the menu and every single one was created with high quality and deliciously prepared. My personal favorite... More

We stopped here due to the proximity to the pier (5-10 min walk up mission) and am glad we did! Like most Thai restaurants, they can spice the food from 1-10 scale: I am a wuss and the hubby say's the hotter the better, so this works well for us. The spring rolls, coconut based soup, island curry and yellow... More

This is a small restaurant in downtown Oceanside within walking distance of the beach, pier, and shops. It's a great place to eat dinner outside and then go watch the sunset. Most of the menu can be made gluten-free, including most of the sauces, upon request and they are very careful about preparation. The only limitations are really on the... More
