This place has friendly servers, with a sense of humour. They knew the menu and made good recommendations. I had my favourite papya salad and it was a little mild so asked for it to be perked up and back it came, just perfectly spiced up. Thinking we were chilli pepper junkies they also brought a selection of different chilli condiments - dried, red paste and fresh chopped in vinegar - ouch the last one of those was hot!! GREAT! The main courses were the right size and prices were good value. The green thai curry was delicate and fragrant. Nice informal setting but well trained staff who were enjoying their work.

In all honesty, we went to Rama because we didn't want to drive to Celadon. Rama is just as good. The Masaman Curry was fantastic, as was the spicy lobster. The pineapple fried rice was good, but not great. Potstickers had a fantastic flavor, but were just a tad bit tough. The papaya salad was the best we've ever eaten and was the star of the meal. They have inventive (and wonderful) cocktails. The decor was romantic, but not stuffy or formal. Service was spectacular, from the moment we were seated until we walked out the front door. Rama is a wonderful destination for a truly excellent meal.

Everything you want from a Thai restaurant ! Lovely relaxed ambience not pretentious but definitely great for a special occasion . Decent menu selection , location is good if you want a night out in gas lamp lively area. Most importantly excellent food and good service!
Being from London where there are a wide range of Thai restaurants this is definitely one of the best we have eaten at.

Down a long hallway you can hear the sound of water. At the end of the hall is a beautiful dining room with a water wall in the rear. The sheer fabric hanging gave a sense of privacy to the diners. Our server was extremely attentive and accommodating. Our food was absolutely delicious. I had the Pad Thai and my husband had scallops. Both were presented beautifully. I highly recommend dining here.

We felt like Thai food while at a conference and we weren't disappointed. Rama had a 25 zaggat rating so we thought safe to try. Zaggat was wrong. They should have rated higher. Great food and service. Low noise and light level. Great value for the price. Don't miss this place when in San Diego.
