I had the Same old Pad Thai which was Quite good. I had it mild which was no heat at all. This Restaurant is in a strip mall which in itself is not very inviting. They have a pretty extensive menu with all the Thai regulars. The decor is nothing great, but the services was exceptional. I noticed a lot... More

I love family owned and operated business', and will give them my business happily over chain restaurants, but they have to be good ! Kinaly Thai fits the bill ! The food is very good. We had spring rolls, three entrees, rice, a huge soup, and a beer for less than $50, which is a bargain in my book. The... More

They have been in this shopping center for years, but recently moved across the parking lot to the old former Round Table Pizza Bldg. Be advised they close for siesta (2 - 4, I think) Thai, Chinese, & Vietnamese Pho - they got it covered.

The food was fresh and good, and the proprietress a bit of a character. A pleasant meal, and reasonably priced.

Family-run Thai restaurant with great food. Eat in or take to go. Lee is a great hostess and will make sure you are happy and well fed. Moving to a new location in the same center soon.

Always a pleasant experience here, good food, usually very fast, always friendly, never too busy but a steady stream of to go orders. Not the "best" thai food, but good enough to go back, numerous times

Definitely the best PadThai in North County. The place is tiny and in an out of the way location. Family run and mostly prepared as you order, often times I get impatient waiting for my food, but it is so well worth it. One of the best places for authentic thai around.

Amazing food! This place has made me a Thai food addict! My only complaint...which is barely a complaint and sounds so lame but...the food can run super hot! Even a mild or level 2 (out of 10) spicy still makes you sweat and your eyes water. Some of my family is sensitive to spicy food and I do hesitate bringing... More

This IS the BEST THAI food ever. My husband and I have been going there for over 5 years, we usually go at least once a month. Not a very big place and is always PACKED. Kinaly host and owner is fantastic, always remembers what we had the last time and are we having same again. You are feeling good... More
