I needed to find a lunch place open at 11 AM due to a conference schedule, and ended up here as a number of places open at 11:30. I found the service friendly and of an average speed. The pad thai with shrimp was solid and freshly prepared. The soup was excellent. The lunch also came with a small spring roll and a small salad. The Thai Iced Coffee was not too sweet, which was nice. The best part was the price: only $8, which makes this the cheapest lunch in San Diego I have had so far (I'm sure there are cheaper places but for a sit down place the $8 is good). The food came out fast and was a good lunch portion size--not too much for a change. I'm not sure how this place would be for dinner, and I have had better Thai, but I found it very adequate for my needs and would recommend it for lunch. The booths were very comfortable.
