We've been to Thailand several times and our favorite Thai restaurant is in the SF Bay Area. That said, the River Kwae in Moreno Valley is our second favorite Thai restaurant in California. The business lunch (served M-F 11:00-2:30 pm) is the best value and portions are generous. The business lunch includes a simple hot and sour soup with chicken and straw mushrooms. One can pick from a menu of about 24 different main dishes(e.g., cashew chicken, ginger pork, green curry chicken, red curry chicken, mixed vegetables, minced chicken with chili and basil, pork or beef with bell peppers, beef with broccoli) which is accompanied by a lettuce salad, two fried won tons, and a mound of rice. Nothing fancy but definitely filling. You can request your level of spiciness. The restaurant is very popular and can be crowded M-F between noon and 1:00 pm; but other times of the day, it's easy to get a table.

The regular a la carte menu offers a variety of appetizers such as fried calamari, chicken sate, green papaya salad; noodle dishes including Pad Thai; three kinds of curries (red, green and yellow); meat and vegetarian dishes. Our favorites are ginger pork, fried trout with mango sauce, eggplant with shrimp, fried soft-shell crab with yellow curry powder (we prefer the soft-shell crab rather than the crab meat with yellow curry powder); combination Pad Thai, mixed seafood in brown sauce, green curry pork, and minced chicken with mint and chili.

The restaurant offers beer and wine, and specialty Thai drinks. Open daily.

I went with some co-workers for lunch. We are a very diverse group. We were shaking our heads. Why the great reviews. I would not drive out of my way for this place. Good Service is provided. It was very crowed for lunch. I do no recommend if you have other options.

We have been here many times and it never disappoints. There a great lunch menu that includes Hot and Sour soup, salad (small portion), Wontons and an entrée for just a little over $6.00. The soup is wonderful and we would go there just for it if everything else was not as good. There are around 20 entrees to choose from on the lunch menu, so you have a great selection. The service is outstanding. We have never had to wait for a table since they have moved to their current location. The food arrives quickly so if you are on a lunch break from work this is the place to go. Many military from March ARB are here everyday because of the great food and quick service. The taste of the food is outstanding, full of flavor and served hot. As I have said we have been here many times and will be back many more times. This is a Great Lunch Spot.

River Kwai has really good selections of Thai food. Though, we usually get the same things because we know what we like. My son has been going to River Kwai for 10 years and can't get enough. He has to drive 40 miles to eat, but goes every other week for lunch. Very good Food.
