We dropped our daughter off at beautiful University of San Diego. Our first dinner together as empty nesters and due to some over the top TripAdvisor reviews we gave Lanna a try. 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

After several attempts in San Diego we found Lanna Thai Restaurant, a small inviting atmosphere with a gracious hostess and waiter. Very reasonable prices for exceptionally good Thia food. Try the eggplant, it was delicious as was the curry duck. It was the very best Thai food we found in the area. I recommend it highly.

Even though we had reservations, we almost left this restaurant because the hostess was going to put us in one of two terrible locations. All the tables were filled except for our table for twol Our server had them move the table to much more enjoyable location so we stayed. We enjoyed the quality food here. We ordered two entrees,...

We asked our hotel to recommend a restaurant and they recommended the Lana, which is just across the road. The food far exceeded our expectations. The service was good. A very good place for dinner.

WE spent 3 weeks in San Diego and ate there 4 times. Every time was 1st class. Service a little slow if busy but food always freshly cooked and service with a smile. Highly recommended.
