Charming restaurant in what I thought initially was a questionable strip mall near the interstate. Once I walked in, all my concerns were wiped away by a pleasant atmosphere, attentive staff, and absolutely fantastic food. What a great break from normal beach vacation food!

Just enjoyed a great dinner here. Sampler platter and lettuce wraps were delicious and would have been enough for 2 people but we also ordered a noodle dish. Food was filling and delicious. Ambiance nice. We weren't planning on going here but enjoyed it thoroughly.

I've been on a search for the best Pa-Nang (panang) Curry this side of Thailand. =_) This Pa-Nang Curry is my top 2 so far as of 2017. Delicious... You can choose between 1-10 for spiciness. I went with a 4 which would be a mild. When I go back, I'll do a 5 though. The Satay appetizer was also... More

The appetizers, soups and first plates are really, really, way beyond average Thai food. The entree was good but not as special as the appetizers.

Sometimes you've got to try it without knowing what you're in for. Lanna is located in a small strip mall next to Sushi Ota. Once inside, the atmosphere was calming and spacious even though just about every table was taken.

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.
