Great Thai region food on San Juan Island

I love this restaurant! They serve great food from the region for lunches and dinners. Lunch is cafeteria style - line up and get served from steam-pots. Selection rotates daily, with standards all the time (like satay and rolls). Dinner is classic sit-down. They also have a nice selection of... read more

Friday Harbor has expensive restaurants but the locals know that the best meal in town is at the Golden Triangle. Lunch has a small variety of tasty choices, but at dinner you get the full range. The cook is from Laos and she delights us each time. The owner and staff are very friendly and it is where the locals... More

The Golden Triangle is not the fanciest Thai place, but it is the only one that I have found so far in San Juan County. That being said, the lunch menu allows you to assemble a meal from what they have displayed behind the counter. This style is more reminiscent of mall food court Asian food, but it actually tastes...

Still love this place so much. My new favorite besides the Chicken satay, is the Red curry with ginger and lemongrass. It is sooooo amazing. Another plus is that I can't eat the dinner portion by myself, so you can split, or do what I do and make many meals out of it. (if you can make it last because... More

This restaurant has very friendly workers. The food was good, not excellent, we are spoiled by a local Thai place here.

If you like Asian food, this is the best lunch in Friday Harbor. It bills itself as Thai, and there are always Thai dishes on the menu, but it would be better to describe it as pan-Asian, since you will find Vietnamese, Lao, Chinese, even Indian dishes from time to time. The hot table changes every day and, although hot-table... More

This is a good place to grab a reasonably priced meal in Friday Harbor. While not gourmet the food is very good. You won't be disappointed. BTW...locals eat here...buff said!

This was the best meal we had in a 4-day stay in Friday Harbour. My husband is still raving about his halibut tempura. The restaurant is small and simple, the food is excellent, principally Thai. Friendly service. No wonder this place stays busy!

Chose a vegan curry and the food was good. Service was good too. Large portion enough for mento take a to-go box that was great the next day.

While the buffet had nothing we would eat, the menu offered vegan selections that satisfied our needs. Definitely on island time- don't be in a hurry
