Let's face it you're not in Bangkok Thailand ,you're in Santa Maria California.The last place you'd expect is a good Thai Eatery,but off the main highway 101, is a gem of a Thai restaurant.It is authentically Thai owned and the food is excellent.Conclusion is simple enough.. if you eat here,you will not be disappointed by hospitality and the excellent food.

Visited this restaurant, few days back .... the lady who sat us down & took the order was very rude & arrogant. Will never go back or recommend this place. ps: apparently she the daughter of the owner & in her mid 40's.

We visited Boonie Thai restaurants in Santa Maria . Since we are always looking for vegetarian options, this was the perfect place for us. We had the vegetarian soup and a green curry with tofu. We were not disappointed. Service was fast and the food tasty.The atmosphere was friendly and it looked like this was a local favorite.

Enjoyed every meal I have eaten at Boonie Thai, a favorite place for dining when I visited my son while he lived in Santa Maria.

Tonight, I once again grabbed some dinner at Boonie Thai Cuisine. The Silver Noodle soup has such fresh ingredients I actually got it to go this time and the large size was gone as the vegetables and other ingredients were just too inviting to enjoy. Family, friends and coworkers who have joined me to eat here, have also really enjoyed... More

First time here and I ordered a delish chicken curry for $8.95 but then you have to pay $1.50 for a cup of rice or $2.50 for a bowl of rice. They do have lots of options such as 7 curries, 13 noodles, 9 fried rice, 14 seafood specials, 11 salads, 10 soups, 15 a la carte, and 14 appetizers.... More

Visited twice during my stay in Santa Maria. First time I tried the yellow curry with tofu and vegetables. Great dish. Second visit I had fried tofu with a wonderful sauce. Also tried the veggie salad - beautiful dish with lots of fresh vegetables, but the dressing was bitter. I would order it again and just have them put the... More

Meat, fish, chicken, it doesnt matter, its all not fresh, poorly cooked, just not what you would expect. Thai food should be spicy, fresh, and inviting. This was not. Bummer.

after being in Los Alamos for only 4 years I ran across this place a few years ago, It is authentic thai that would give any thai restaurant in LA a run for the money. Simple and clean restaurant and simple and clean food as well. If you order spicy take care it really is!
