This was the first Thai restaurant in Santa Rosa. The decor is very traditional Thai, and servers wear Thai clothes. Food is served on the traditional Thai blue and white china. The lunch specials are excellent value. You can order 1, 2 or 3 items; soup and rice are included in the price. You get a little less of each... More

We wanted some Thai food after the Superbowl and found this place close to our motel. Staff were very friendly and the food was good. We asked for hot and they brought it...reluctantly at first but it was good and hot. Good value for the money.

This place has the classics, but it also has some items that are hard to find elsewhere. Try the meung kam if you've never had it before. Though the setting isn't great (in a court with a seedy motel) it is clean and calm inside. I highly recommend it if you like thai food. My favorite in the county remains... More

Went here for a business lunch and really enjoyed the meal. The restaurant is nicely lit and has a pleasant atmosphere. The menu is very varied but don't get overwhelmed. Take a couple of extra minutes to look at things and then pick. Their lunch combo is very good as is their Pad Thai and their Thai salads. Great choice... More

We stopped by on our road trip north - and we're glad we did. Lovely, peaceful dining room, very helpful staff, and a delicious lunch. What more could we want?

Food was good...but for the price, the serving sizes were quite small...in addition they will ask you if you want steamed rice with your meal...please be aware that they charge $3 a bowl for rice. It also took us several minutes to get the attention of a server when we needed something.

We went here based on the reviews of others that we had found on tripadvisor. I must say that when we pulled into the parking lot, we were having serious second thoughts, it's just not the type of place we'd normally dine at. I can't tell you how glad we were that we ignored our "outside" impression and we went... More

This is one of the best Thai food I have eaten... The menu is amazing... Food is authentic with excellent flavor. The staff are very nice. Decor is not modern... But enjoy the 80s look before it is gone!!! Few years from now you won't be able to see it 😀 If you like Thai food - this is a... More

Jhanthong Banbua is quite popular...for good reason. Servers are attentive without being intrusive, and the food is delicious. I usually wind up with the Chicken Satay, but everything I've tried is good. My cohorts really love the Chai Tea, as well. It is busy at lunch time, being close to the county administrative center and the court, but my wait... More

Four of us ate at take out from Jhanthong Banbua recently and we all enjoyed our meals. I ordered the Thai style beef and it was PERFECT for me who likes the more tradition meals. The beef was so tender and seasoned nicely. Most meals are in the range of $10-$15. There are tons of choices...actually making it harder to... More
