We ate there twice, the curries were extremely good and tasted like what we had in Thailand. The Pad Thai was not as good as the other dishes offered. A very extensive menu, well priced.

The Exotic Thai is worthy of the excellent reviews it gets on TripAdvisor and Yelp. The food is fresh, nicely presented and tastes wonderful. Good menu with somewhat different offerings such as duck curry and a variety of vegetarian dishes. I liked their ready offering of brown rice (healthier and flavourful). Service is fast, friendly and efficient. The coconut ice... More

Outstanding flavors and ample portions at this casual restaurant. Both inside and outside seating is available. They serve wine and beer. You can go on a spicy, tasty vacation just seating and eating. Try the spicy ground chicken for unforgettable flavors.

I LOVE this thai restaurant, even after coming to Thailand, this food is still delicious. I highly recommend their fried rice, pad thai, and panang curry.

Great Thia food! Best pad kee Mao I've had in a long time. Very fast and courteous service. The spring rolls were also out of this world. Would definitely recommend!

My husband and I eat here on an average of twice a month with and without additional family members in tow. We have our favorites which are the spicy eggplant (no meat), stir fry mix veggies, and any of the curry dishes. Brown rice is always an available option, as are meatless options. The Thai Ice Coffee is quite a... More

Had food poisoning here by eating the crab rangoons, should have known with an empty restaurant. Usually they take forever getting your drinks, sometimes they forget all together. BBQ chicken was dry and unedible. However, the stir fry's and orange chicken are great!!

Living in Los Angeles, we have access to many Thai restaurants and have a repertoire of favorite ones plus favorite dishes. We tried this restaurant while on a visit to Ojai and found all three of our dishes to be nothing more than mediocre. It was as if they had been prepared by a formula rather than by a chef.... More
