Review of Thai Time

My family and I have been eating here regularly for years. It is hands down the best Thai Food in San Diego. Amy, the owner, is always there and is so friendly. Their Tom Kha soup is the very best that I have ever had. This place is worth the drive to the East part of San Diego. You will NOT be disappointed.

We tried the restaurant for the lunch special, and the food was mediocre. Since when does Thai food include cream cheese won-tons? The Pad Thai was seasoned well, but the egg roll seemed like it had been fried a while before. Service was friendly and the food was served quickly. We may try it again if we're in the area, but maybe not. Decor was nice.

The food tastes great. The portion sizes are pretty good for the price. The appetizers and desserts are also good sized. We've known the last two owners in this restuarant (I think franchise) and they've been very friendly and even allowed us to order different types of fish with different sauces. The only draw back is it is a very small restaurant so if it's busy as long as you don't mind sitting fairly close then you'll enjoy it. The do keep some music playing and a dim lighting which helps keep people a little more quiet.

It was OK...the food was good, but the place was very small, very cold, and the service wasn't that great.
