My husband and I went here while we were on vacation in Southern California. It’s a small place in a strip mall, but it was so worth the visit. We had the beef waterfall and the yellow curry. Both were exceptional. The portions were not...terribly large but it was very satisfying. Would definitely go back if we lived hereMore

A terrific Thai restaurant. We went for lunch. You get meal with soup or salad. I had pad Thai that was absolutely delicious. If the location was better you would never get a seat. Inexpensive for lunch. $8-12.

It doesn't look like a proper Thai place from the outside, but if you select meals from the north eastern part of Thailand you will not be dissapointed. Waterfall is the name of a port dish. It was so popular in our family that we...had to order another one. Lovely waitress as well. We can highly recommend this place.More

I was getting my car serviced at JeepCare, and needed to pick up lunch. Issara came up and it was only a few streets away with reasonably priced lunch specials. The little restaurant is located in a strip mall off Gothard and Warner. I used...Yelp's Eat24 and placed my Pad Thai with chicken order for pick up. When I arrived, I had to wait maybe 15-20 minutes for my food. The place has a medley of tables and booth, and I was surprised it wasn't busy. Perhaps it was a Monday? My Pad That lunch special came to $7.51 with tax. The portion for the To Go order was decent for 1 person. The Pad Thai was delicious, even after traveling 20 minutes to my office. I would say that 3 ounces of chicken was in my order, and for a $7 lunch special, I would say that's pretty fair. The salad was not bad... cucumbers, tomatoes, baby field greens mixed with Romaine and carrots. Overall a good place for a decently priced lunch. Friendly staff, but if you're in a hurry this may not be the place to go.More

I've had so many different Thai food places throughout the years, and at this point, Issara has the best Pad Thai I've ever had. I appreciate that when you ask for it extra spicy, they ACTUALLY make it extra spicy. The appetizer sampler is also...a great deal for $11. I don't get the chance to come here very frequently, but I always enjoy the food when I do!More

We stopped by for lunch and enjoyed the lunch specials. Food was prepared with fresh ingredients and was delicious. Lunch specials include either soup or salad. The $9.95 lunch specials includes both. Our servers were friendly and efficient. We shall return for dinner.

I have been eating here for a couple of years - came in for their lunch specials, and later brought family and friends here for dinner. The service is wonderful, and the food is excellently prepared and presented. My wife enjoys the garlic chicken stir...fry, while I really love the red or green curry with shrimp. They will also make off-menu items, and I am partial to the Drunken Noodles. The Mango with Sticky Rice dessert is to die for!! They also serve really good house wines.More

Issara was a delight. I got the $9.95 luncheon special ( other specials - $6.95 and $7.95). I received a light, spicy wonton soup, then a large platter that consisted of salad, eight (8) large succulent shrimp on a bed of cabbage and rice. All...were delicious. I would have enjoyed some hot tea on the table or a small cookie to end the meal but I will return. I came at 2 pm; there were only six people in the restaurant. So that is a good time to go. Service was polite, attentive, and appreciated.More

We love eating at Issara. It is by far the best Thai food in Orange County. They have the best pad thai and they will prepare it to your liking (spicy vs not spicy) We order to go and delivery from Issara often and we...are never disappointed. The staff is friendly and they treat you like family. You will not be disappointed.More

I have had my share of Thai food up and down California - this place is pretty darn good! The food is always fresh, never feels too greasy or oily, and I can't get enough of their soups. I often order two soups at a...time on top of the main dish. My only complaint is that they use butter in the brown rice, which forces me to order the white rice. I am here every two weeks when I get my hair done in Huntington Beach, and I have gifted the gift cards to two of my friends who live nearby but had not tried it. They love it now!More

Was in the area prior to departing for Catalina Island the next day. Searched for a Groupon Now and found this place. Checked Trip Advisor for ratings and decided to give it a try. I'm sure glad we did. Together, they steered us to a...fine dining experience at a very reasonable price. The atmosphere, although pleasant, is the only thing keeping this restaurant from rating 5 stars in my opinion. My wife shared the Shrimp Pad Thai and and order of Panang Beef Curry. We asked for the curry dish to be medium spiced and have spice delivered on the side so we could season it to our liking. Four different 'sauces' were brought out. One a jalapeno in vinegar, one was chili powder, another was jalapenos diced in fish oil and the last I couldn't identify. For dessert, we ordered the Thai Tea Creme Brulee. Everything served not only met, but exceeded our expectations with one small exception. It's only a matter of preference, but the white rice was a bit too sticky, tending to clump together. Not only do they offer free delivery on orders over $15, you can order from their website for pickup or delivery. They are open until 9 pm Monday through Saturday and closed Sunday. Overall this was an excellent prelude to our Catalina excursion.More

I have been to the Issara Thai Cuisine restaurant twice now. Each time I've tried new dishes. So far everything has been top notch. This is a small restaurant but decorated very classy. The food is served piping hot and all ingredients used were very...fresh indeed. I spoke to one of the owners David and he told me the chef is from Thailand and has many years of experience which was definitely evident in the dishes that were prepared for me. I highly recommend you come and experience this restaurant yourself. I know you won't be disappointed. I am planning on bringing a group of friends for a special occasion dinner in the very near future. I wish them great success!More

The mixed appetizer plate was very good with the satay chicken and the bangkok cups. We also had the Shrimp Pad Thai and the Chicken Pad with vegetables. I liked the chicken better, but both were good. The water tasted great and I liked the...clear glass bottle that they brought with water to the table.More
