Good food, great view, live music

Good food, great view, live music. What else do you want? I'm by no means a Thai food expert but this food is good and they readily suggested gluten-free options. I don't remember the name of what I selected, but it had rice noodles, chicken and shrimp. Very good. Everyone loved their dinner... read more

Met friends for a 6:30 dinner. Great table by the railing. Was our first time there but our friends eat there often. Service? What service? Food? Meh....not notable. Fortunately, we were,there for the company. Wouldn't return...but this may just have been an off night...

We had dinner outside on their patio one time. It was a beautiful day so was quite nice. The inside section looked a little crowded. This restaurant was recommended by a friend who lives in the area. I am not knowledgable about Thai food but found the yellow curry to be excellent. Next time I might do take out.

This restaurant has potential because the patio has a great view, food is good but service is SLOW, SLOW, SLOW. 40 minutes to serve an entree? You kidding right? and usually they always mess up with the check or when you are splitting it, other than that is great. Friendliness and smiling faces and customer service needs improvement

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.

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.

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.
