We decided on this place because we didn't want to wait 45 min for Papagayos. We were seated quickly and a nice young lady took our order. The food came quicker than expected. It had good flavor and was hot. We had cashew chicken and it was great. My daughter had Pad See Ew and it was okay. A little... More

You would think that if a restaurant wasn't busy the service would be pretty good. Unfortunately, this wasn't the case. Our server acted like we were unwelcomedoing guests. She would forget to bring stuff to our table and acted upset when we asked again.She messed up our order and just made the whole dining experience terrible. For spending $85 on... More

Family that has lived here for 25 years shared that California Thai was not that good. Friends that just moved here tried it and said the same ... But 8 of us decided to try it last night. The sign at the hostess booth read "If you're in a hurry you're in the wrong place". One could construe that could... More

We chose California Thai because they had plenty of seating and the waffle house had a 30 minute wait. We have no regrets. We order three sushi rolls, and each was freshly made and excellent. We ordered four different Thai entrees, and three were exceptional, but not as spicy as we expected. The service was adequate, and we got our... More

We enjoyed our dinner here. We ordered sushi and Thai dishes. Sushi was fresh and tasty. Thai noodle dish was labeled as spicy but was not spicy at all but still flavorful. Service was prompt and friendly.

The atmosphere is nice, the staff are wonderful, and the food is great. This is about the only restaurant up on the mountain that is consistently good.

It's a shame that a restaurant that serves very good Thai Food is very, very, very slow. Not only was it slow but the place was colder than being outside in the really cold weather that came through while we were there. Wore my coat throughout dinner. Patrons were warming their hands over food when they finally got it. It... More

We've eaten here a few times, and honestly forget that it's here because it's tucked away in the village.. I've never been disappointed with the quality or the value. The staff is beyond pleasant always smiling. Heartily recommend this place

My wife and I really love Thai food. That being said, food need little more flavor, needs to be a bit spicier and warmer. Staff is average, nice and friendly. Wait time from sit down to get up wad about an hour which is solid. Place has a beautiful Stine fireplace and it's pretty cozy inside. If I ever come... More

I always plan to eat at California Thai when I go up to Lake Arrowhead. The food, service, ambiance and view of bay looking out the large windows is worth the visit. Never a disappointing meal in the last four years.
