Great Food ... Service not that much

Setting: Located on a strip mall with enough parking space. Interior decor is dark and with enough "kitch" from Thailand. Seating is kind of ok. Avoid the table right by the entrance, you will feel the air + crowds waiting for a table will be staring at your food and your conversation can get... read more

Reasonably priced for lunch! Large portions and absolutely delicious! Take note there is not a lot of seating. Good service even though they were busy. Parking lot shared with other businesses. Location easy to find.

My wife swears this is the best Thai food this side of Thailand. Traditional Thai food with great service and flavor. Call ahead for a reservation as they fill up quickly with locals in the know.

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. Wait staff are very kind to children and the food comes out in a reasonable time period. I live in a part of the Midwest where good Thai food is hard to find,... More

This is a really nice small Thai restaurant with great ambiance! It's a little pricy, but the food is great and the portions are very large. It's some of the best Thai food I've had and I can't wait to go back, highly recommended!

I had the convenience of staying in the hotel next to this restaurant, and I went to this place multiple times in my three-month stay. They are usually busy during peak dinner hours, so come early or late. I usually order take out myself because the restaurant is not that big itself. Friendly service, clean, cozy. Recommended dishes: Roasted duck... More

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.
