This neighborhood Thai restaurant has delicious food and friendly service. We were especially impressed that the complementary salad served with the lunch specials is made from real lettuce, not awful iceberg.

After trying several Thai food restaurants in San Diego (3-4 different restaurants), this is the best Tahi food taste and presentations. I recommend this restaurant if you are serious for trying Thai food in San Diego... 👍👍👍

We've picked up carry out Thai food twice in the past week. It was quick to be prepared, and excellent quality at a reasonable price. I especially recommend the pad thai, and the drunken noodles. Lunch is an especially good value with daily specials.

It is a true luxury when your neighborhood Thai restaurant turns out to be one of the best in the city! This kitchen features fresh ingredients treated tenderly in the traditional Thai fashion. The soups are hearty and the spring rolls light and crisp. My favorite, Pad Thai with steamed tofu, comes as close to perfection as I have ever... More

The Pad Thai was very good. The Rama with beef and brown rice was very good too. The wait staff was very attentive. Prices for lunch were very inexpensive. Thank you for a good lunch.

This place is great. There is no other way to sum it up. The restaurant itself is cozy and cool, with just enough lighting to let you enjoy your food and the company in the room but not so much that you need a pair of sunglasses. The service... in a word... is friendly. Polite could also be used. From... More

Pad Thai was simple but yummy, pineapple fried rice was delicious & the pad see ew was tasty but the noodles were not the wide ones but just a thicker noodle. One difference at this Thai place, the salad dressing was not sweet, but tasted mustardy. The location is great but parking can be tricky. Service was great!!!

Lovely little Thai restaurant in the heart of the North Park scene. A great selection of traditional Thai dishes with some innovative surprises. The chicken satay was done perfectly and the Moo Yang pork appetizer was so good I almost ordered a second helping. The duck Ped Ka Prao was delicious. The seafood Tom Yum fried rice was not as...
