We love the full range of authentic Thai cooking served in a comfortable setting with very good service. We go there often and have taken several friends all of whom have enjoyed themselves. Having been to Thailand several times for long periods I have learned to enjoy their cuisine and been disappointed with offerings here in the states of what is called Thai food, not so with Narraya. It is an area that is near the beach (PB as it is called here) which is a bit of a drive from some of the other areas of San Diego. However, there is a lot of parking next to the restaurant.
We love their appetizers and have been introduced to many selections that have become our favorites. Next time we are going to make a meal of their appetizers. They will also tailor the to your taste for hot! and they can make it very hot as my Mexican friends found out. Try it we love the place.

Very surprised by this place as it is in the middle of PB which is mostly bars and college kids. The restaurant manages to have a quiet, relaxIng atmosphere none the less and both the food and wine were very good. I recommend the yellow curry!

Given some of the marginal college-kid eateries in the area, we were a little cautious about this place but we needn't of worried. The place was spotless, the staff was cordial and they had a surprisingly thorough wine list. Seating was conventional at tables or traditional on the floor. Early diners enjoyed reduced prices on appetizers and we worked our way through some wonderful selections. Entrees were plentiful, delicious and reasonable. We are not strangers to Thai food and found this food to be among the best! We will absolutely return! Bravo to this talented and competent staff!

We dined here on our last night in town - wish we had tried it sooner. Food, service and wine were great and dinner for two with a nice bottle of white wine and a tip was around $75. The wine was on sale for half price, so we got a really nice CA chardonnay for $22.

We really loved this place - a little off the main drag, but it's definitely a nice restaurant. The food was delicious. I ordered the See ow noodle dish - very good. My husband ordered the Lemongrass Fish - wow! What a presentation and the dish was wonderful! The servers were extremely friendly and they paid a lot of attention to us (could have been our cute toddler who was interacting with them - they taught her how to say "hi" in Thai). We really enjoyed our dinner! We finished it off with the FBI dessert - really good... save room, if you can!! I would definitely recommend this restaurant - it seems like one of the nicer places in PB.
