Been here many times, never had a bad experience. All the dishes I have tried are excellent. You can order at different heat levels, choose wisely!!

I'm sure people from my city (Dubuque, IA) will say this is the best thai restaurant. To me it is ok. Not bad. I'm sure a lot of people here will say good. The price is really cheap given it is Santa Ana area. I had pad thai and thai tea for $12. What a steal!

It's in a shopping area, unassuming is a good word for this place. They didn't even have the lights on when I came in around 12pm. They do have lots of natural light coming through the windows but it's a very black resturant. Serve was fine, but not Sweet. Food was fine, good portions and flavors. Prices are good, too.... More

When it comes to Thai food I'm a snob and this place didn't disappoint. Had the coconut soup and then the green curry chicken. My friend had the drunken noodles with beef. Service was awesome too.

Our first time to George's and wow it's amazing and seriously cheap for La! The Tum yum noodle bowl is HUGE and the southern fried chicken and rice are my W favs!

Nothing special. There is no mix of complex aromas and flavors in a single dish. But if you are looking for good standard Thai food and you live in the neighborhood and don't want to drive too far - you really can't go wrong. I tried several different dishes - they are all good - not exceptional but good. And... More

Found George's Thai Bistro on a fluke returning to the hotel. This is authentic Thai food in a mall like setting, don't be fooled or discouraged, this is great food! Some pretty fantastic service too.

Found this place by chance. Delicious food and attentive service. Don't miss their curries but be careful with the level of spiciness. A 6 (on their scale of 1-10)should be enough for most people. I've eaten thai food in a number of countres including a couple of trips to Thailand. This is the real deal

Really liked it as there was tons of salmon, noodles and especially bok choy cut in small pieces and shitake mushrooms. Great combination of items, and it was a big serving.

So I'm not super knowledgeable on Thai food (yet-gonna go live in Thailand next year) but i really really love the pad thai from George's. I seriously crave it often! I love the way the different textures compliment each other. The spiciness level seems to vary and i'm not sure if it depends on that day's cook or on the... More
