We were in Carpinteria over Memorial Day weekend 2012. We searched for vegetarian restaurants and came up with nothing. However, we searched for Thai food and found reviews for Your Place in Santa Barbara, about 11 miles up the 101 hwy. It is a little hole-in-the-wall place that you'd miss if you blinked.
There were lots of vegetarian options. We tried the garlic pepper tofu broccoli, spicy fried rice, and vegetable wonton soup. Wow! all very good and tasty. The staff was welcoming and friendly and the decor was home-spun Thai themed. The only thing I'd comment on is that the place needs a thorough cleaning- there was dust and grime on the decorations....ew. But, I overlooked all that due to the flavorful and delicious food. Also, they have several "Best Thai food of Santa Barbara" posters up from previous years.
