The restaurant is now managed and I believe owned by a family member. The interior has been spaced up. The food remains tasty and served in ample portions. The atmosphere is friendly. There is plenty of free parking.

The restaurant has an extensive menu with a wide variety of choices. The sauces are very good and can be varied from mild to hot. The service is attentive and the surroundings are clean and light.

Tucked in a corner, quietly away. The decor is nothing to brag about but the food is. This is a secret little gem of Del Mar for authentic Thai food.

This is a very tranquil quiet restaurant that serves excellent food. A family run business, the service is always attentive. Love many of the dishes including chicken salad, clay pot options, spring rolls, and fish dishes. Very reasonable for a lot of food.
