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
