Recommend - Very Good Food, Atmosphere, and Service

I have been to this restaurant 12-15 times in the last 5 years, all but one time for lunch. It is located about 1/2 block from the Seal Beach pier on Main Street. The restaurant is relatively small, but I have only had to wait a short time for a table once. Service is prompt and courteous. Prices... read more

Since this was a return visit here, it was time to investigate something else on the menu. I was in the mood for something spicy, and curry is usually good for that. I opted for the curry yellow with chicken, thinking that would satisfy that craving. I expected something which was meat and veggies covered in sauce, but what I... More

We loved the ambiance of the restaurant, especially the cool backlit wall. I had the green curry, it wasn't the best I've had, but it was good. The rest of the meal was good.

Service was a little slow. Food seemed like average Thai. But then I don't do well with anything spicy hot, so I'm not the best person to ask.

We stopped here for lunch on a visit to Seal Beach and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was very good as all 7 of us ordered something different. I had the green curry Thai rice and some coconut soup, both which were very good. The wait staff left a little to be desired as they took a plate away... More

Was taken here by friends that we were visiting in Long Beach. We were quickly greeted and seated for our party of 6. We had 6 different entrees, and they were all delicious! (Mine was the Pad See Ew-noodles/broccoli/scrambled egg.) The Thai iced tea was highly recommended by one person in our party, although I didn't try it. (It's both... More

While spending some time in Seal Beach we wanted a change from our usual brew pub fare. Thai on Main, with its good wine list, fit the bill. I loved the decor and atmosphere. It was stylish and clean with warm lighting.The food was good, although it lacked a certain flavor punch that we usually get with Thai food. Maybe... More

I was staying in Seal Beach on business, and stopped in here on a whim. There was an acoustic guitar player adding to the already friendly atmosphere. There isn't much space inside, and tables are small, but it adds to the cozy feel of the place. Huge selection of wine available, so this is as much as wine bar as... More

We very much enjoyed our meal here. We had the Pad Thai and the Curry sampler. Both were very good, even Excellent. The curry was a bit thin/soupy, but the flavors were great and the vegetables were cooked excellently (still a bit fresh/crunchy when they should be, soft and tender potatoes, etc.). We also had very nice beers on happy... More

SATAY CHICKEN for 4 bucks - tasty and other selected appetizers at 1/2 price. Happy Hour ends at 6 p.m., so come early for the best seats. Full bar too, great ambience and life music starts at 6 p.m.. Street parking. recommended MeuterMedia
