Delicious Thai food in Pacifica.

Ok. This is probably the ONLY Thai restaurant in Pacifica but it is good and I keep going back. My fav dishes are Green Papaya Salad and Eggplant and Tofu in Black Bean Sauce. If they have it, I love their Mango and Sticky rice. This is definitely a local place and family run. I often see little... read more

I have been going to this place since I moved to Pacifica, and then went to visit Thailand. I am pleased to report that the food here accurately reflects real Thai food. The old guy who runs the place is a hoot, he will tell you what to order sometimes - listen to him! He knows his stuff, and he... More

I wish I could at least say the food... but it was rank! Pad Thai is my favorite and at this place.....don't get expectations high. The server was down right rude/unhappy/ should retire!

Like everyone said, it doesn't look like much but the food was very good. The portions were a decent size and the service was very prompt. If the ambiance were better I might have given it a 5. The green curry was a bit mild for my taste.

This place is very unwelcoming both from the appearance as well as the older man who seated us. Not once did he say hello, but soundlessly took our order for soup and spring rolls. We weren't even sure if he understood us, but it was a very good meal.

Do not be put off by the size or appearance, the food is fantastic and delicious. We had the Pad Panang Kai and the Pad Thai noddles. Very reasonable prices, smells and feels like you are in Thailand. My wife is now a fan of real Thai food. Thank you!!

I've had the seriously rude service that you read in other reviews - it's one specific guy (owner?) who probably realizes they are the only Thai restaurant in Pacifica and figures you'll put up with his attitude if you want to get your fix. The food is OK, barely. The ambiance is ... lacking, but at least the prices reflect... More

I really liked this place before I went to Thailand, but I was really wondering if it was the real deal. It is. The food we had in Thailand was just what you get here. Even the ambiance was similar to a couple of places we went to there. That was funny! My fav is the brown rice ginger salmon... More

That title is a joke, this is probably the only Thai restaurant there. We've eaten there twice and food is very good. Setting is very basic, no decor or mood, but if you just want to eat good food that is inexpensive, this place is excellent.
