I think this was the best Thai food I've had. Everything we ordered was either outstanding, or at its worst, very good. Starting with the tom yum soup, it was perfect. Many Thai places add carrots, tomatoes and other things that I feel detract from the flavor. Not the case here: it was simple and delicious. Normally, I'm not a... More

We have been going to this resturant for years and have never been disappointed. Randy and Sue (owners) are very kind people with a great resturant. I have had everything on the menu and it's all good. My favorite of all is the fried rice with everything. It's not on the menu but it's the best fried rice around. If... More

Don't let the location or appearance of the restaurant fool you. The food here is delicious. As the owner stated after we ordered, nothing is frozen and everything is fresh. The chef, his wife, focuses on healthy meals that are flavorful and always fresh. I came here for lunch with a couple of coworkers. Before ordering, the waiter brings out... More

Just a block away from Palomar College in an unassuming 70s strip mall, Happy Chang features some of the best Thai food we have ever tasted. The soups are really great and quite filling, and the curries are very tasty indeed. The portions are big and the waiter is full of recommendations of protein pairings. The place is somewhat cluttered... More
