This is my favorite Thai restaurant. It’s small but worth it! The food is good. The Thom KA soup is a must. My sis and I just love eating here or just do take out. Worth checking it out.

Bangkok Bay is quite simply superb. This is not just my opinion it is shared by all that have joined me and the legions that fill this place every evening. Great selection of fresh authentic Thai food.

When visiting our daughter in Del Mar we always visit Bangkok Bay in Solana Beach. They offer a tasty variety of Thai dishes for reasonable prices. More locals than tourists eat here and its not because of the location.

Always good. Distinct flavors in each dish. Great value. Can be very busy at lunch time.This is the place locals go for Thai who want something that is not as generic as most other choices.

日曜夜20:30頃行くと、店外にたくさんの人が、20分弱待って店内に。 意外と中は広くゆったりしています。 ・なすの炒め物 ・グリーンカレー ・パッタイ を頼みましたが、どれもとても美味しかったです。 日本人は好きな味付けだと思います。 アメリカの中華や韓国料理は日本で食べるものよりも、物足りない気がする(味の濃さではなく、旨味成分の違いだそうです)のですが、ここはそんなことないです。 ヘビロテしそうです。 I went there on Sunday night 20:30 PM. Some groups were waiting to enter. I waited for almost 20min, and could enter. We ordered •eggplant cook with some vegetables •green curry and rice •pat thai(noodles )...More

I have been coming here for at least 16 years. This cozy little restaurant has the best Thai food in San Diego. Bar none. The ginger chicken is my all-time favorite, but you can't go wrong with the Panang Curry Drunken Noodles, Pad Thai, or...More
