Tried it out on a weekday-popular place, but plenty of room. Atmosphere was pleasant, very easy to talk (not loud), and food was excellent.

We had been to the sister restaurant of Takhrai Thai, Lai Thai, many times. This one is more upscale with a completely different menu. The presentation was spectacular. Especialy for the "Love Boat" entree. The food was good, spiced just right. And very good service.

Thank Kathy D
Management response:

Kathy, thanks for reaching out! We're glad to hear you loved our elevated atmosphere and our focus on presentation. The Love Boat entree is almost too beautiful to eat -- almost. We're looking forward to seeing you again soon! Until next time, Takhrai Thai More

My only issue with Takhrai Thai is that it is not closer to my house. I'd be a weekly customer for sure if it were. They offer a nice selection of options and I have never been disappointed with a selection. In addition to enjoying dinners there it is nice as a lunch option. The setting is nice decor wise...

We flew into San Diego and needed some good, nutritious food to start our vacation. Takhrai Thai turned out to be an excellent choice recommended by the hotel staff. The food was fresh and delicious with generous portions that were tasty when reheated the next day for lunch. The Pad Thai was outstanding and other entrees were nice additions. We... More

Our family decided to try this place rather than drive downtown in search of Thai. The place is located in a strip mall close to Scripps Ranch, and we had heard good things about the food. We were all impressed! We had spring rolls and angel wings for starters, which were both good. I had the cashew dish with rice... More

One of the very best Thai meals I have eaten. A comfortable, attractive restaurant in a modern California strip mall. I had a yellow Curry chicken lunch, with a very tasty and spicy soup. I will be visiting again. Worth the trip to find this secluded treasure.

I have customers next to Takhrai and I had never seen it before. Had the spicy Phad Thai Chicken Noodles and they were awesome. Very relaxing spot.

I've been going to this restaurant regularly for quite a while now, and I must say, the food is excellent. The portions are quite generous (I never leave hungry)! This is my go-to place for Thai food in San Diego and I have never once left disappointed. In regards to the staff, all are very friendly and have great senses... More
