been going here for years, was located around the corner and it is primarily to go. The sister restaurant - Thai Juan On, in SAn Juan Capistrano, is sit down and has a bar. Like any thai food place, each on is slightly different, but...this is one of our favorites.More

Best Thai Restaurant! Clean cooking with fresh ingredients. Relocated to a smaller space but excellent food and wine! Attentive staff and Management! Gave a personal touch to the service. Moderately priced! A complete bargain!

Great and authentic Thai food with very friendly service staff. I came here second time in a row and had the exact same dish. Green curry with vegetables and tofu instead of chicken. Terrific- no 52 on menu!

While sitting at an other Thai restaurant in South Laguna Beach we overheard a conversation at the table next to ours (NYC seating with that table maybe 6 inches from ours) talking about Thai This in Dana Point. My wife and I went last night...and we were so happy with finding this restaurant. We were warmly greeted by the owner Jib and seated quickly. It was around 8 PM and the small restaurant was quite busy (very strange for OC) and even when we left around 9 people were still coming into have a wonderful meal. Thai This is located in a small strip center on PCH next to the construction of the Prado South development so it is a little hard to find with the minimal signage as the only one I saw was on the Del Prado side of the parking lot. I started with the Tom Koa Kai (coconut soup) that was one of the best I have had, just enough kick to add to the deep flavor. The veggies in the soup were crisp and plenty of chicken pieces. My wife got the green curry with steamed tofu and loved her dish. I got the “Most Popular” dish of Famous Yellow / Ka Rhee Kai spicy yellow curry with chicken, potato and onion which was a wonderful dish. Service was very nice, restaurant was very comfortable and Jib was a terrific host. We noticed many of the patrons knew him and this seemed like a locals place. Even the couple who sat next to us at the other Thai restaurant were there dinning as well. We will be joining the regulars eating at Thai This from now on as our choice for Thai food. Sorry no pics as when dinning with my wife or family I have promised not to take pics of my food or the restaurant.More

Have not had much experience with Thai food, as I am more into Japanese & chinese cuisine. The meal here was very tasty and service was on par with other restaurants in the area.

Good Thai food. Not to pricey. Good service and nice atmosphere. I think that you will be happy with this choice.

Have been wanting to try Thai This forever. What a catchy little name and their entrance looks so enchanting! The ambiance was fantastic - very eclectic and well, enchanting! I ordered the pad thai to-go and was oh so disappointed - the serving size was...really small but the price wasn't. I see they're closed now, "We are now closed for the time being. Please check out our sister restaurant in San Juan Capistrano! Always check back here for the latest news about our re-opening, hopefully soon." Their sister restaurant is Thai One On, another great play on words but their menu, prices and serving sizes look identical so I probably won't give it a try.More
