Though I think Bangkok Bay could up the "hot" in some of its dishes, this is a friendly and relatively inexpensive Thai restaurant with a generous menu.

I went in expecting amazing thai food. I ordered the Pad See Ew with Shrimp, with a Thai Iced Tea. The shrimp was cooked well and so were the veggies, but the noodles were overcooked and kind of a big sticky ball of pasta. The Thai Iced Tea was way sweet, to the point where I couldn't take more than... More

We go to Bangkok Bay all the time and love the food! Best Thai in all of San Diego county. Every single dish I've gotten has been stellar. You MUST eat here.

I have always enjoyed high quality meals here with great service! The place is small, so you may have to wait a bit for a table. It's worth it!

We ate at this restaurant twice for lunch and both times we had great, friendly service, the food was tasty and healthy, and all that for a reasonable price. Just next to Courtyard by Marriott.
