Came here with friends for lunch. I was a little disappointed. I frequently eat Thai, there are so many in options in San Diego. The lunch special is a good price, but there are other Thai places with better food. The soup served was made with chicken broth, not really what I was expecting. I ordered the green curry, no...

Went last evening based on recommendation of local friend. Lovely decor, good service, but food was lackluster at best. My duck Choo chi had only whole peas and canned carrots, with overcooked duck. Husband's whole fish was similarly overcooked and unremarkable. Prices were moderate but will not return.

This is a follow up review to my 5-star review from last year. The food is still mostly excellent - green curry is fab - but the soup was lukewarm and uninspired. The main reason for the downgrade is that there was a hair fried into the wonton. Huge ick factor! Though I'm sure this happens a lot at restaurants... More

At first I was t sure about the taste. Spicy food is my thing but from a different country IDK! Come here with friend and everyone enjoyed it! My taste buds were off the hook. I tried the Spicy noodles with chicken and the Yellow cold tea (can't recall the name of it). Small place but overall fm great food.

I had the fresh spring rolls, and the wrap was a bit dry as if they had been sitting out for some time. Pretty tasty and worth getting. I also had the sukiyaki soup, which I normally love, but it didn't have the taste or complexity that I get here in my town of Dallas. I was not impressed with... More

I have been a regular at this restaurant for decades. I dine in as well as take out. Gets busy on the week-ends so we go early or do take out. I met the owners and one of them is from Thailand. They go to Los Angeles for many of the items they use in their restaurant. They have a... More

Have been there with a girlfriend and my fiancé. Curry tastes very good. Very good price compared with the nice dining environment provided. Highly recommend (but not for Chinese food)!
