Great Dinner and View

Enjoyed dinner on patio with great view of ocean. Food was well prepared and service was outstanding. Lovely walk from Terranea hotel and nice to change up vs hotel restaurants.

They quickly were able to sit a party of 12, food was amazing. Staff was very nice. I wish we had found this on our first day. I would highly recommend, if you are in a large group you will need to be patient about food coming out since it is a small kitchen.

This restaurant is really good and the food has gotten much better over the last year. A year ago we stopped going as it felt like they were warming up pre-cooked food. Now the food seems fresh and the service is good.

They were open by 11am for lunch unlike the sushi place next door so we are here. All herbs and other ingredients were very fresh. Seafood got pot soup was tasty, but they should've offered tools to extract crab meat. Service was too attentive in that we were frequently asked, Are you still working on that?

Great place to sit and watch sunset -- the patio is more comfortable than inside, to me. Pumpkin curry is my favorite. Soups are excellent.

Swan Thai is a small restaurant that offers indoor and outdoor seating areas, the patio area being particularly delightful during fair weather as it offers fabulous views of the Pacific Ocean. The patio is protected by glass and there are plenty of heaters to keep the area warm. What an absolute delight it is to be able to dine outside... More

My experience is limited as I've only had a few of their entrees, but they were all good. The best, in my opinion, us the green papaya salad which is very, very well done.

Good Thai food in a great location with ocean views. Nice patio overlooking the ocean in a shopping center.

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.
