Musman Curry and Drunken Noodle dishes are irrefutably the best Thai food this FoodProwler can't seem to grasp. So the décor is similar to a bordered up, burnt out tenement housing project. Blame the landlord. He is leveraging the owners with raising rent so the Eat-In business was stopped and this place only offers Take-Out. I like the gusto of... More

Best Thai Food in San Diego, having spent many years traveling around South East Asia and a great deal of time of Thailand, I have a great reference base. The Green Curry, Pad Thai and Cashew Chicken are my favorites. The only issue that I have had over the past 5 years is sometimes the spiciness level can sometime be... More

The resturant that we wanted fo find on this evening was closed for a vacation. We found this one by accident. The service was a little slow because they were very busy. The food was very good. We started with appetizers, I had the Little Mermaid (frided shrimp) and my husband had a combo selection and everything was really good.... More

This place has nice Thai food for a good price. While it was not the best I've had, it was tasty and the service was okay too. It has lots of pretty plants but it would have been nice if they did more to remove its Pizza Hut ambiance that included brick veneer, trapezoid windows, and valance cafe curtains. I... More

All of our dishes were well prepared. The serving sizes were generous, leaving us plenty of left overs. The only negative is the atmosphere as it still looks like an old Pizza Hut, but it is quiet enough for easy conversation.

We had driven by this place several times. It does not look like much from the outside but the inside is very nicely done. The food was just incredible and very flavorful and quickly served. The service was great too and we loved the very moderate price. It's not fancy and you don't have to dress up to go there.... More

The Vegetarian Satay was remarkably good! The Thai eggplant, which I got with tofu, was awesome and very reasonable. I went with 2 friends. We all loved it.

If you are in North Park, this is probably the best Thai place in the neighborhood. It's in a former Pizza Hut next to a strip mall, so that should adjust your expectations for atmosphere appropriately. But the food and service are very good, and reasonable prices. If you don't feel like the trek to Sab-E-Lee, or aren't quite up... More

If you are craving thai food like I was when I found this spot, it will not disappoint. They have a wide variety of dishes and entrees to satisfy what you are craving. It is pretty casual, so you don't need to be fancy, but it can still be a nice dinner out. The food is reasonably priced and served... More
