Good food and prices

This restaurant has great lunch specials ($7-8) with good portions. I didn't feel like the amount of food was too much or too little. They can make items without fish sauce if you ask which many thai places will not do. Overall, good food and good value.

We tried it during SD Restaurant Week. Decent portions. We've tried plenty of Thai restaurants throughout the USA and this one was not bad. Really liked their soup and service was pretty efficient considering how crowded it was.

After reading the rave reviews, I craved this place when I visited San Diego. We ordered the vegetable tempura as an appetizer, and for an entree I ordered the mixed stir fry vegetables with chicken and added cashew nut. They have a full bar, and great house/electronic music as background music (not too loud, not dance music, so it was... More

We went here two nights ago and it was fabulous. The did was if high quality and really fresh. Satay and wings to start - both great. The curries we had were cooked to our preferred spice and could not fault it. Drinks flowing - great service and would make this my choice of Thai in SD

We spotted this small Thai restaurant in the midst of the downtown San Diego hustle bustle and we were not disappointed. Good service and nice flavored Thai cooking adjusted to the spice levels of the four of us, two minimum, one moderate and one smoking! I really liked the eggplant with lean pork. My wife preferred the lettuce wrap with... More

We stopped in for lunch and thought "How perfect. Thai on a lovely afternoon, after a 3 1/2 hour flight. Relaxing, And, reasonably light fare that wouldn't interfere with a sumptuous dinner. Now, I must say.. it was relaxing. The wait staff were pleasant, though mostly absent. The dishes we ate dictated FRESH Thai peppers, and this is what we... More

Friendly waitress doing her best, the dish looked/designed nicely and artistically. But we are not touring an art gallery, we are there to eat. Not much of decoration, and with dark brown flooring and black painted chairs and tables, it is too hard to judge the cleanness and sanitation level of this place. Ordered cooked vegetable and shrimp with steamed... More

Ate here twice in a week with friends. Good food at a reasonable price. Only drawback was no liquor, only beer and wine.

We were strolling around the Gaslamp District looking for somewhere to eat and stumbled across this place. Being fans of Asian food we decided to try it and glad we did. The phad Thai was outstanding and the curry hot and tasty. We had a lovely evening here. I'd happily go again.

Not impressed at all with the food. Let me say that I love Thai food and I was really looking forward to the dinner. The appetizer of fried spring rolls was just okay. Flavor was lacking. Then I got the lettuce wrap with chicken. Portion was huge but sadly quality was lacking; the lettuce was literally a quarter head of... More
