First time here and I ordered a delish chicken curry for $8.95 but then you have to pay $1.50 for a cup of rice or $2.50 for a bowl of rice. They do have lots of options such as 7 curries, 13 noodles, 9 fried rice, 14 seafood specials, 11 salads, 10 soups, 15 a la carte, and 14 appetizers.... More

Visited twice during my stay in Santa Maria. First time I tried the yellow curry with tofu and vegetables. Great dish. Second visit I had fried tofu with a wonderful sauce. Also tried the veggie salad - beautiful dish with lots of fresh vegetables, but the dressing was bitter. I would order it again and just have them put the... More

Meat, fish, chicken, it doesnt matter, its all not fresh, poorly cooked, just not what you would expect. Thai food should be spicy, fresh, and inviting. This was not. Bummer.

after being in Los Alamos for only 4 years I ran across this place a few years ago, It is authentic thai that would give any thai restaurant in LA a run for the money. Simple and clean restaurant and simple and clean food as well. If you order spicy take care it really is!

The duck curry is wonderful and Boonie herself is just the sweetest lady. Highly recommend you go here and get some of that spicy Thai food.

We have become huge fans of Boonie Thai. Our son introduced us to Thai food and Boonie Thai is our 'go to' place in Santa Maria. We like to try different dishes & have yet to be disappointed. If you're a little hesitant, try their duck curry - to die for! Their sauces are wonderful - always subtle & delicious.... More

We go here each time I visit family because it's very good. I always get #79 because I'm a vegetarian but they offer an extensive list of Thai foods to please everyone And the staff, well, are just great and friendly people. Of course white rice is available but they offer brown rice which always makes me happier! Highly recommended!

I came here last night with a friend. The last time I had been here was years ago. It was still as good as I remember! This place is excellent and the locals love it here. The service is super nice and friendly. The food comes out very fast and was hot and fresh. They have a great variety on... More

Yes! If you want great food all the time, this is the place for you. Boonie and her husband have been running this restaurant now for many, many years. They are a delight! And their food is super. I love the chicken wings, deep fried and tons of fat, but oh well! You will never be disappointed.

Stopped here for dinner on our way to San Luis Obispo. My wife had the duck curry and I had the Pa Nang curry with chicken. Preferred mine as it was a little creamier thanks to the coconut milk. Rice is extra with the curries but was plump and just the right amount of sticky. The Thai ice coffee could... More
