“THE place for Thai in Morro Bay!”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

We are so pleased to finally have a great Thai restaurant in Morro Bay. I cannot get enough of the calamari. It is usually served with a very hot chili dipping oil but there are other choices if it is too spicy...try both! The Pad Thai is excellent. I also enjoy the Spring Rolls. This is a popular place so go early or expect to wait, especially on weekends...or skip the crowd and go for lunch. The staff is wonderful and the chef is a delight. This is definitely the place foe Thai in Morro Bay!

“Fabulous, authentic Thai food prepared fresh to order”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

I can't say enough about the great food at the Thai Bounty. The owners Doi and George knock themselves out to provide some of the very best Thai food on the Central Coast. George is a commercial fisherman and brings fresh fish to the menu or contracts with other local fishermen; the couple raises vegetables and Thai herbs on their 5 acres in the Los Osos Valley. Their basil is fresh and flavorful. Their market garden is organic and the fresh ingredients make a big difference in their salads, soups, curry dishes, noodles, and stir-fry. They work with local ranchers to bring the highest quality beef, poultry and pork to their restaurant. Doi is from Thailand, George is Cuban, and sometimes they do a fusion food event, and George even brings his band to perform. A wonderful spot. The new location provides lots of outdoor seating and a wonderful interior environment. Why a 4 rating? Sometimes their staff seems ambivalent and uncaring. I know Doi and George are working to change the staff's attitude. The food is SO good, I can easily ignore what I think the service should be, and just enjoy the food. We eat at the Thai Bounty at least twice a month, usually for lunch.

“Great new place in Morro Bay with delicious food!”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

This is a great new place in Morro Bay. The ambiance is modern and fun with an open floor plan concept. This is a seat-yourself look at the menu and then order at the counter type of restaurant. Different for sure! But the food is really great.

“New Location... Mmmmmmm Perfect now.”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

My wife and I LOVE this place. I can't wait for the new bar to open because instead of ordering ahead I'm going right on down and ordering while I sup a beer. I can't help ordering the Pad See Ew (sp?) and the Panang Curry. We have never had a bad experience from this place and the new location is so much better than the last.
Great Job Thai Bounty!
