“Great to find a local venue with BYO”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

This excellent little Thai Restaurant was steps away from our hotel and authentic. The crab appetiser was yummy as too the duck in ginger stir-fry. Friendly staff and for a small charge we could BYO wine. So we selected a wonderful Californian Pinot Gris from the liquor store and had a fantastic night.

“Great Croissants”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

While in Santa Barbara for 3 weeks last April 2013, I had the opportunity to get delicious croissants, which melt in your mouth, from Renaud's Patisserie & Bistro. My nephew who lives in Santa Barbara recommended this place, and I tank him for his great taste!

“Nice staff and good Thai food”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Very tasty food, friendly staff, good prices. The staff was very nice and didn't rush us out, even though we were the last in the restaurant.

“Tasty food, great portions, relaxed atmosphere”
Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

Your Choice is pretty bare-bones, decor-wise, but that's not what I was there for. I was there for some tasty Thai comfort food, which is precisely what I got.

It's clearly a joint for locals, not tourists, and it's not exactly fancy--but the lunch deal is fantastic (an entree, soup or salad, rice, and an egg roll for less than $10) and the service friendly. After a week of feeling like a tourist in Carpenteria and downtown Santa Barbara, this was a fantastic change of pace!

“Excellent Thai food”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

We had a wonderful Thai meal. All freshly prepared with beautiful ingredients and presentation. We had fish, tofu, chicken and all was served hot and steaming to the table. The dishes were beautiful and all so different with aromas that set our senses aglow. Each plate was like a fresh floral bouquet except it was with Thai food. A visual feast for the eyes, nose and mouth. And if you like it spicy hot they'll do that too. Very nice people too. Family-owned.
