Ate here expecting decent Thai food (but was admittedly not expecting much, given the stellar location on the beach with ocean/lagoon view) -- but was pleasantly surprised! Fantastic dishes -- Pad Thai and yellow curry were fresh and seasoned just right, Thai ice tea was tasty but not too sweet, and service was friendly and professional. All in all, great... More

Coming in to a small beachfront ethnic restaurant with a group of 9 persons presents a challenge to the management, and so one has to give them latitude as there were times when things got very confusing, they clearly were not up to serving a large group and so I believe this affected the quality of the cooking-we came for...

We came in for lunch about 1:00 there was one other seated table but a group ordering Togo from the counter. We decided to stay. Once we were seated it took about 15 min for the waitress to make It back to our table since it to-go area was packed. Once we ordered only 1/2 the table was served salad... More

The temperature heat was scorching hot which is exactly the way I liked it. Service was excellent and overhaul a very very happy satisfied... More

We stopped in late on a rainy Sunday evening. The owner was most courteous and made the most delicious meal ever! We were the only customers that late and we were treated very well. We could tell it had been a very busy day for this restaurant and we were most likely the last customers of the day, yet we... More

My first time in Capitola, and I spied a Thai restaurant on the Main Street. My Thai Beach offered everything we could've wanted. Sat at a beach window, watching the tide roll in, and ordered from a pretty extensive menu. Both my wife and I loved the food - a find even in a larger two, and the service was... More

A nice quiet lunch with a good view on a slow weekday. We were glad to go and return again. The proprietor is doing a good job.

The pad thai was good, though could have been a bit spicier. Decent pineapple fried rice too. The beef dish was way overcooked though, the sauce was decent. Good satays. Really nice crispy vegetable spring rolls. We ordered too much, but nothing was terribly disappointing.

We were visiting in the Capitola area and love Thai food so we decided on My Thai Beach for dinner. A few things I noticed that scared me a bit was the dirty trim work and the bathroom was dirty and smelled of urine. Normally if it is just my husband and me, I would have immediately hi-tailed it out... More

We called in to collect a takeaway and were ignored for quite a while even though we could see our food was ready and waiting. No apology for this but we paid and took the food. On the plus side, all the dishes we ordered were very tasty from chicken satay starters to pad Thai and red and green curries.... More
