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.

Pacifica Thai has better than average authentic thai food, a very silly (but overwhelmingly friendly) waitress, and kitschy royal family decor. All go quite well together and make for a relaxing night out, or in if you prefer the pickup option. I got the pad thai and asked to have it made "spicy" (beware, those of you that are more... More

This is real thaifood!! It's a cute little place with wonderful Thai food! I did taste some wonderful thaifood in Thailand and this restaurant served me the exact same food and flavours! The service is what you expect. I liked the old man who served us! He was so cool!! And he didn't let us order the same dishes cause... More

This is a small local Thai restaurant which seems to be family run. The spices are homemade (I was told by the chef/wife/daughter/not sure her exact relationship) and you can taste it. Food is very fresh and flavorful. Treat yourself to something you've never tried before. Service can be a little slow, because they don't seem to have actual waiters,... More

Service was slow and rude and argumentative. Glasses were dirty. Meals were bland but OK. I just went here on a Groupon with my family and was horrified at the dining experience. I almost don't know where to start. The waiter never spoke to us until he brought the check then suddenly revealed to us that he was capable of... More
