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

Very good food and excellent service. We ordered a curry dish and a stir fry. Both were excellent. Give it a try!

This small restaurant is located just a few steps from Hwy 101. The food is good and the service excellent. The Pad Thai was a bit too sweet for my taste, but I would be willing to return to try something else. The atmosphere is nice and suitable for a casual romantic evening.

We always go to Rim Talay for thai food when in Oceanside. Always fresh and good. Love the atmosphere of this small restaurant.

We really enjoyed the food it had great taste and the cook really cooks the curry or sauce to your spice requirement as opposed to sprinkling the food with red peppers. We really liked the place and would go again

This tiny place on Mission serves outstanding Thai food, and locals seem to know that already. It was crowded, even on a Thursday night when the local Night Market was in full swing. We tried a variety of dishes, including a couple of specials, and wasn't disappointed with anything. The heat factor seems high, with the "mild" dishes still a... More

Loved the Thai iced tea with bobo, but the entrees were disappointingly unoriginal. Food was good, though, and the restaurant was conveniently located. Went back for lunch and had a similar experience.

They started off right. However, I did love the traditional Pad Thai. Its a far cry from the true recipe. I do love the vegetables, especially the bean sprouts. However the salty brown sauce is just that.

First time eating Thai for me. My son loves Thai food and decided we would try this place. Small but good fresh fare. Our server was very helpful and pleasant. I loved the pad Thai. We shared two entrees and tried the BBQ pork special for starters. Dinner was less than $40 with tip, good value.
