This is a small family owned restaurant with freshly made dishes. The portions are not huge but the food is really good.

Great Pad Thai and Thai BBQ dishes. We like to get the fried veggie appetizer as well. Friendly staff and food is always nicely prepared and tastes fresh. It's a really small and quaint place so if you want a more quiet meal this is a good selection.

Lime leaf Thai is a lovely small restaurant in Castro Valley Village mall. It is open and light and has outdoor seating - which is lovely on sunny days and warm summer evenings. It is a casual laid back restaurant (not fancy) where the waitresses always have a smile for you. We are regulars and they always remember our preferences... More

Lime Leaf is a wonderful casual Thai restaurant. The flavors are amazing, the staff is very friendly and take good care of you and they will work with you on customizing your dish (I often go in there when I need something super spicy...while that's not the normal spice level they will definitely amp things up for me). I really... More

We have enjoyed better Thai food at other places in Castro Valley. The Tom Kha soup was too sweet for my taste, no lemongrass but a lot of coconut milk. Other dishes had a lot of red onions in them. One of our party ordered a simple salad and didn't finish it. Nothing specific - just not that great.

I really enjoy Lime Leaf for when my non-Thai eating hubby is out of town and I want just to sit quietly and dine on fresh flavors in a small home town restaurant. It sits right on the parking lot, but so do the other restaurants in our little Castro Valley Village Shopping Center. The staff is very friendly and... More

Castro Valley doesn't have a lot of great restaurants. It's a fast food mecca. If you're looking for something that's healthy and gives you a more exotic option, Lime Leaf Thai is the place. It's small but has a nice sunny atmosphere. There's even a couple of outdoor patio tables although your sitting in a strip mall so your sitting... More

We eat here frequently and love the fun atmosphere. Basil Chicken for my husband every time. He loves it. I enjoy the Fried Rice with chicken and the Pad Thai in particular. Good service and everything tastes fresh.
