Very delicious and fresh food is served here. I had the chicken pot stickers and the ginger chicken and loved them both. This restaurant offers the right blend of Asian food and classy atmosphere. I highly recommend the dishes I had. The food is very affordable. There are hot selections as well as mild. Check this place out. Well worth... More

We were craving for some authentic Thai food so we headed here. Food was mediocre and slightly expensive. Nice ambiance but the dining room was poorly designed where the noise seemed to be stuck right in the middle and it gets so loud inside that one can't think right during dinner. Certain dishes came pretty quick while others took a... More

We have been eating at Coconut Bay for over a decade. Has always been our favorite local Thai restaurant. And they have a great Happy Hour too! I use their green curry chicken as my gold standard. Good food, nice atmosphere, friendly staff.

Pros: Friendly & attentive staff. 3 patio tables available. Cons: It is very loud inside. There is no sound dampening. All conversations echo and bounce off the walls. The food was mediocre, nothing special. The pineapple chicken rice was bland although it is displayed nicely in a pineapple. The food quality does not equate to the price. For the price,... More

Chicken in every dish was tasteless and rubbery, golden cups were very greasy, so was Roti Bread.Tom Yum sup... More

I have never found a restaurant outside of Thailand that serves Thai food anywhere near as good as in Thailand. This restaurant is pretty typical, the service was good and friendly and the food was just okay. I had trout which was a little on the dry side. It had nice vegetables with it and the drinks were good.

Went with friends for happy hour and dinner. Happy hour prices went up 75%. Doesn't matter if you get a free appetizer. Do away with that and keep the prices down. Food is average at best. All tastes pretty much the same. Had noodles and yellow curry and peanut sauce vegetables. Service was good but one dish was omitted and... More
