Nice Atmosphere

The best thing about this restaurant is the atmosphere. The Thai furniture and decorations are pretty cool and the waitress was dressed in formal Thai attire. The food was average, not as fresh as some Thai restaurants and some of the entrees were not very warm.

I love restaurants that do one thing really well, like Andrea's for example. I despise restaurants that do two things poorly, like this poor excuse for a restaurant. Add really lousy service and I'm never coming back.

My wife and I thought we were going into Fuji Sushi but were surprised to find ourselves sitting in the A Good Thai restaurant. Apparently the two are together. In any case, my wife ordered the Cha Cha roll and she was disappointed. The rice on the roll did not stick and the tempura was too overdone. Additionally, I had... More

"Why did we eat here?" My husband and I wondered in the middle of our meal. Note to self: Don't eat at a restaurant that can't decide what to serve you. Japanese- Peruvian - Thai? Why not concentrate on perfecting one instead of being below average at three? I got the beef teriyaki rib and sushi lunch combination ($17). What... More

Have been here 5 times since moving to Ventura over a month ago. The papaya salad was great and spicy. Also had the Tom Yum Goong which was really good and spicy. Best Thai food in Ventura if you are looking for something authentic.

Interesting mix of cuisines, but have had better. A little more spice and a better puruvian menue might help.

A very versatile menu with sushi as well as the expected Thai dishes. Very authentic interior and service staff was in native costume.

I have eaten here four times and been very pleased. I am partial to the Aji de Gallina and the Gai Kuah noodles although the yellow curry is also a favorite. The service was pleasant and the food was exceptional. We get take out when we are coming back from LA, if we don't have time to stop long enough... More

Some people may find the combination of Peruvian and Thai confusing... but in reality a lot of Peruvian food is heavily influenced by Asian cuisine. I ate there twice and tasted a couple of Peruvian and a couple of Thai dishes. Everything was delicious and well seasoned. I also didn't mind the spicy level of the hot dishes. Highly recommend.
