We have been eating at Coconut Bay for over a decade. Has always been our favorite local Thai restaurant. And they have a great Happy Hour too! I use their green curry chicken as my gold standard. Good food, nice atmosphere, friendly staff.

Pros: Friendly & attentive staff. 3 patio tables available. Cons: It is very loud inside. There is no sound dampening. All conversations echo and bounce off the walls. The food was mediocre, nothing special. The pineapple chicken rice was bland although it is displayed nicely in a pineapple. The food quality does not equate to the price. For the price,... More

I have never found a restaurant outside of Thailand that serves Thai food anywhere near as good as in Thailand. This restaurant is pretty typical, the service was good and friendly and the food was just okay. I had trout which was a little on the dry side. It had nice vegetables with it and the drinks were good.

Went with friends for happy hour and dinner. Happy hour prices went up 75%. Doesn't matter if you get a free appetizer. Do away with that and keep the prices down. Food is average at best. All tastes pretty much the same. Had noodles and yellow curry and peanut sauce vegetables. Service was good but one dish was omitted and... More
