Lanna is one of our favorite restaurants for good food and casual (yet slightly sophisticated) dining. The interior decor is creative and well designed. We often bring friends here for lunch and dinner, as a result, Lanna is now on our friends' list of favorite local restaurants, too.

The curries and noodles all have tofu or mock duck as potential choices, along with meat/seafood. The curries are a bit sweet for my tastes but the spinach wrap with tofu starter was absolutely delicious. It's a really nice restaurant overall.

If you like Thai food, this place is excellent. Great food and wonderful service! It is very busy so we went early. It fills quickly at dinner time.

We ate here on a recommendation and we were not disappointed with the food. The restaurant is located in strip mall in the Pacific Beach / Mission Bay area. The food was prepared very well and everything was quite tasty and good size portions. The service was friendly, helpful and efficient. All in all a good place for very good... More

Lanna Thai is an attractive restaurant with pleasant service, large portions, and fair prices. The food was very disappointing. Our two very different dishes appeared to have much the same seasoning--salt and heat. The thick noodles with chicken was reasonably good. The beef with green beans was selected from the "Wok" section, but it seemed to have been steamed rather... More

After a long day of hustle and bustle, Lanna Thai was a quiet Refuge. I went on a Tuesday night, notoriously slow retail day. Plenty of parking and open seating. I was quickly seated and had my glass of wine nearly instantly. I ordered the Bangkok Steak. Flavorful as well as expertly cooked. Melt in your mouth doesn't begin to... More

I have been craving Thai and found this place on Trip Advisor. This place did not disappoint! We started off with the fresh summer rolls and Mango shrimp rolls! Yummy! I had the Thai fried rice with shrimp and hubby got the pad Thai.

Vegetarian & Thai Restaurant on Mission Bay Drive, next door to the Red Roof Inn. Very nice food, ample serves but not much in the way of ambience as it's in a strip of shops surrounded by Commercial & Industrial Companies. There's parking on site immediately in front. Would certainly revisit.

This is a wonderful restaurant with fabulous authentic thai food. The food is fresh in taste and appearance. The wait staff was very polite and attentive. We were a largish party with a number of requests and dietary restrictions. They happily accommodated us and were able to accurately and quickly deliver our meals. Good parking in the rear of the...
