Fresh new interior design (bright and warm). Quality Thai food made with careful attention to details. A busy lunch location. A quiet dinner location. A neighborhood gem.

Located in a strip mall along with a Golds Gym and grocery store, this hidden Thai gem attracts a big lunch crowd for its quick, inexpensive, tasty dishes. Each lunch special comes with a decent-sized meal and crispy spring roll. $13 including tip. I had cashew chicken. My friend had Siam beef. Fresh and yummy. A great quick escape, especially... More

Great authentic options plus all the Thai staples - with somehow appropriate but kitchy interior full of teddy bears - amazing improvement over previous blue stuff.

I had two one night stays in a nearby hotel and both times I had dinner there. I loved the fried rice dish with pineapple and shrimp. Very tasty. The service was also very good and the wait times very acceptable.

The pad thai is great in this restaurant. I have never tried anything else but the shrimp pad thai always.

I have been going to Chao Pra Ya for 10+ years and have yet to find a better Thai restaurant. The staff is so friendly--they know my order whenever I call. Highly recommend chicken larb or thai chicken, chili and basil. Having been to Thailand, I still love this place!!!

The kitchen lacked consistency on my last visit. The soup was, at best, without distinction. The green curry was not great. However, the shrimp dish and noodles were rather good. Don't go here to impress a business contact, but if you are craving Thai, can keep your expectations in check, and have no time to drive elsewhere, this is a... More

Overall, mostly tasty food. We occasionally order from this Thai restaurant for group lunches and the food is good, but not amazing. In general we avoid the duck dishes because they aren't good, but the curry dishes are quite good. Their delivery stops earlier than most places though, so order earlier.
