OMG!! This place is INSANE!! Their curry is some of the best I've EVER eaten. I had the yellow and my wife had the red (which I just finished the leftovers for breakfast). Good service and very nice people. Who would believe you would find...such a delicious restaurant in a crappy strip center between Planned Parenthood and 7-11.More

Food was quite good At first had a problem getting service as I seemed our server was more interested in socializing.. flagged down a different waitress & she was excellent & so was the busy boy.

Went here for dinner with a friend on a Friday night. The food was delicious and well-prepared and the service was very good. Prices were reasonable and the servings were generous. The parking lot is a bit small, but there was plenty of parking on...the side street. I would not hesitate to dine here again.More

The food was really great for a small neighborhood restaurant. Everyone enjoyed their dishes, and because it was a local place, the prices were fair. It was so good that we actually ordered in dinner from them another night during our stay in Mission Beach....This restaurant was better than most Thai places anywhere, including NY.More

Lanna Thai Cuisine has the best food in San Diego. The food is delicious and well prepared. Staff is courteous and efficient and will accommodate spice and other preferences. The menu is extensive and I've been delighted with all of my choices. Of particular excellence...are the mussels! Lanna's prices are very reasonable and portions generous and while I enjoy eating at the restaurant, it's also convenient to occasionally use their take out service.More

So lucky to live close by, Been going for years & a favorite go to place for takeout for Oscar’s Emmy’s etc. They have very good Waite staff & the food is excellent. Love the spicy green beans (add your favorite protein or not) duck...curry, trilicious salmon, Bangkok steak, Pad kee mao .... it’s all delicious, fresh & well presented. Like that they have good brown rice as well as white!More

I've eaten at Lanna Thai several times and their staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Their food is fresh and consistent. We had the spinach wraps and Tom kha soup, which is always one of my favorites. We also had the chicken basil dish. Be...careful of how spicy you order if you're wimpy like me. I can't handle much spice. This Thai food gem is tucked away in a shopping center where there is a 7-Eleven. It's not on the main drag but closer to Highway 5 and there is parking in the parking lot but many times it's full. If you love Thai food give it a chance!More

Followed Trip Advisor to Lanna Thai Cuisine. Wife shrimp pad Thai and my crispy cashew and tofu were elegantly prepared and tasted great. Service was prompt, friendly, and efficient. This is a great place to try out Thai food if you are not familiar. They...are very careful to determine your tolerance for spice and they are very good at controlling the level of spice requested. Meat eater or vegan, you will not be disappointed.More

Consistently good food and quality service. I eat here regularly. I love all Thai food and this place represents. Wide noodles, curries and stir fries, all good.
