Lanna Thai is one of my favorite Thai restaurants. I am lucky that it's near my work and I can go often. My co-workers and I get so excited when we think of the Tom Kha soup they offer with the lunch entrees. The restaurant is very clean and comfortable. I always feel so relaxed when I am there. The...

A nice little place with very good food. Ten levels of spiciness so you can get what you want. Good service as well.

I have been eating Thai cuisine for many years now and thought that I could not be surprised. While visiting San Diego, after a long travel day we happened upon this unassuming location in a strip shopping center, but figured at least Thai we know what to get. There were four of us and each dish was extraordinary; we each... More

There was 7 of us having dinner and everyone was happy with their meal. That is rare for our group of seniors. All tasted like it was prepared fresh. Excellent service and very nice decor. We have eaten at about a dozen Thai restaurants in our area. This is in the top 3 for food quality. Maybe number one for... More

Those reviews were SPOT ON! Best Thai I have had period! Small pretty little restaurant tucked into a strip center. Jammed with repeat customers . My spring rolls... More

Lanna Thai is located in an unassuming strip mall just off the 5 freeway in Pacific Beach. The service was very good and the food extremely tasty. Although the basic dishes are offered, the most interesting dishes are modern trendy version of traditional Thai food. The Citrus Halibut in a bright lime, garlic sauce and Chu-Chee Fish in a red...

We visited Lanna last October and found it this August to be just as good as it was then. My wife had the Thai barbecued chicken and I had the Tom Yum soup (seven on the hot scale) and the Bangkok Steak. We both opted for the brown rice side dish. All three dishes were excellent (I'm just glad I... More
