We had a table of 8 and sat outside at sunset. The food was reasonable and reasonably priced. We've eaten a lot of Thai food and found that it lacked spice. The portions were a good size. It was OK, but nothing special.

Not being overly familiar with Thai food, having tried it only a few times, I was extremely grateful for the servers of who provided some advice on various dishes that my date and I would enjoy. Their advice was ideal. We especially enjoyed the Pad Thai ($10.95) & Pumpkin Curry ($12.95). Both were extremely flavorful and more than enough food... More

Location is always a good thing and this place did not disappoint. On a day off my husband and I took a little drive out to Rancho Palos Verdes and stopped in at Swan Thai. We ordered Phad Thai, Mongolian Beef and Red Curry. I have long been a connoisseur of Phad Thai. Not easy to find the right Phad... More

ordered green curry,Thai tea, asparagus,shrimp and scallops. Very good. Server was attentive and pleasant. Dogs are allowed in the patio. I love dogs but when dogs are allowed with the owner at least feed the dog by giving him the food and not putting it on the concrete floor.
