Love this restaurant, not fancy but clean and good food. Boonie who is the cook and owner makes the best thai food. Rachael, her daughter, runs the front of the restaurant and she knows her customers. A must try, favorites are the pad thai, pannang and egg rolls are great. Also for a treat try the love boat.

Definitely not a form over function restaurant. Decor is 50s style diner, but the food is very good. Family operated. Very nice people.

Great food and the lunch specials are very affordable. Dinner portions are big enough for me to take some home for lunch the next day. There is a brown rice option as well. They do carry-out too. Otis is very friendly. Rachel is a little rough around the edges but she is a friend of a friend so I give... More

Love the steak salad and the mango with sticky rice. Service is good. Ask for specials. Ask for senior's discount. The cook lady is Thai. Nice atmosphere.

Eating at Boonie Thai is like going to grandma's house if grandma was a sassy, old, Thai woman who owned a great restaurant. It's so funny watching the owner (who is also the Hostess and waitress) interact with her customers. She makes everybody laugh, and turns an ordinary dining experience into a theatrical, comedy routine. Besides the great food, she's... More

The food is great and if you don't know what something is just ask, they are very friendly and helpful here. The place looks like an old diner but you don't come here for the ambiance, you come here for the food! Ordered everything super hot the first time around, I would recommend maybe just one dish super hot and... More

We ate at Boonie Thai Cuisine in early June during a family vacation. We were driving down PCH around supper time and decided to use Trip Advisor to see what restaurants were near us, for some reason we all thought Thai food sounded good. We just happened to be near Santa Maria so we followed the directions to Boonie's. The... More
