“Pookies Thai best in SoCal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2009

Located in a business court with easy free parking and a pretty water feature in front of the restaurant, Pookie's Thai has modern neutral decor, dining inside and out at tables with white tablecloths. The staff are very attentive, especially Pookie, the owner. She has a great sense of humour and is very chatty, with a good memory for returning customers. We don't even have to order as she knows our usual, we visit that often! It has a mixed clientele, more business side at lunchtime, local dates, families and groups of friends in the evening.
Our favourites are the Tom Yum Koong (fragrant spicy shrimp and mushroom soup with tamarind), Siam Squid (squid stir fried with holy basil, chilli, and vegetables), Mussaman Curry (tamarind based available in variety of meats, tofu, seafood), Penang Curry (again available in variety of tastes), Chicken Sa-Te (order twice the amount it disappears fast!), and the unusual Apple and Mango Salad, I'm not saying what it has in it go and find out for yourself.... most dishes are under $10 so it will be a cheap feast of wonderful authentic Thai food in great surroundings. Once you go you will become a regular.
Oh and you can buy beer and wine, sake, and even sushi on the premises. (Pookie has a sushi restaurant in the same complex).

Having eaten Thai food all over, including Thailand, I think this is by far the best Thai restaurant in the area.
The service is memorable and the atmosphere is good despite the SoCal office park. The dishes includes Thai traditional and several of Pookie's originals. Love the duck curry.
