After a day of sightseeing, we were looking for Thai food and the reviews for this restaurant were good. We walked from near Petco Stadium to the restaurant. The decor was tasteful, the music wasn’t too loud, and we were greeted and welcomed immediately. My...More

We had a business marketing lunch with 6 people. The place was busy but we were seated within 5 minutes. The food was fresh, hot and arrived within 15 minutes. I had the pumpkin curry which was amazing and I would recommend it.

Nice decor, music, ambiance, quick pleasant service, well priced. The food was decent, but compared to my own neighborhood Thai place, the portions were small and not as attractive or good. It's nice they offer brown rice. We ordered a Cashew chicken entree -- '4'...More

We had a very late lunch and the joint was empty. A young guy who barely spoke english took care of us. Super attentive and fast. We had one of those hot soups with tofu in them, lemon glazed chicken over crisp kale and lean...More
