Stopped for dinner after visiting the beach on a recent trip. Good service, interesting menu with some excellent appetizers. Decent prices.

I eat here about every other week. There are many other Thai places in PB but this one is the best. It is more than just Thai-style food, so don't be surprised to see dishes from other Asian countries. I cannot proof it, but to me the food seems to be very natural (no MSG etc). I live in PB...

Both the appetizers and main courses were great! We often search out Thai restaurants when we travel and this may be the best we have had. We had the crab rangoon, spring rolls and egg rolls, all great. The noodles, the fried rice and the red curry, all perfect. You won't regret this find.

Massaman curry was amazing. I am not a thai connoisseur so take it as you will. My husband got the pad thai and liked it also. I thought the presentation was beautiful. I wish we could have tried more food because everyone food around us looked great also. The banana desert was okay. The waitress didn't speak English but maybe... More

I would normally just walk past a rather generic looking restaurant like this, but our party of four, two of whom do not care for Thai food, were hungry and tired of walking past all the even more generic looking bar-restaurants on Mission Blvd and Garnet St. What a great meal. The pot stickers were very good and our entrees... More

This was within walking distance of our hotel. The Thai food was outstanding! Great service by family members.

My wife and I ate here and ordered the Singapore yellow curry with carrots, potato and soft tofu, spinach gyoza, and yakisoba. The yakisoba and spinach gyoza were good but the Singapore yellow curry dish was unbelievably good, some of the best curry I have ever had! So my sense is there is some INCREDIBLY GOOD food here but you... More

Everything on Mission Beach is crowded and noisy, except for this gem. We have eaten here 3 times over the years and it never disappoints. This time the 5 of us each had something different and each plate was all but liked clean. We wished we had room for the banana thing for dessert but that will be for the... More

What a great find about a block from the beach. It's quiet inside and very authentic. The prices are reasonable, menu extensive and so far always fine fresh great Thai food. It's location so close to the water makes it stand out way beyond the more familiar boring and mediocre eateries that are prolific just up the street. A really... More

This was some of the best Asian food we've ever had! We ate till it hurt! My only regret was we didn't find this place till the last day of our vacation in San Diego and only got to go there once!
