The 15 Best Thai Restaurants in San Diego

Kaitlyn Burns: Cozy atmosphere, buy your wine next door as they don’t have a license. The asparagus & shrimp was amazing!

Joshua Livecchi: Love the curry here! It’s the awesomeness of a food truck combined with a family style restaurant! You can’t go wrong with anything here!

Kellie Shelton: Having BBQ pork 2 skewers appetizer, fried chicken rice and a Thai tea. All the food is so good!!! And you could order it as mild or spicy as you want! <_>

Kevin Woody: This place is delicious. The panang curry killed. The BBQ pork appetizer killed. Everything was fantastic. 5/5. Would do again.

Scott Coburn: The coconut shrimp appetizer was great! The fish larb was full of flavor and a great twist on traditional pork or chicken larb. Everything here is great. Best Thai in San Diego!

Gustavo Silva: The woks are delicious are priced really well. The eggplant with beef and extra vegetables is divine.

Maureen Liwanag: Everything we ordered was bomb! Try the Cream Cheese Wontons, Tom Kah and Duck Curry.

Jessica Helwig: Hole in the wall place, but the food is incredible!!

Eater: Flavor and heat mingle deliciously at this no-frills Thai joint. The curries and noodles are above par but the catfish or duck larb and raw beef salad are really something special. [Eater 38 Member]

Vivek Bhagwat: Get the spicy eggplant & basil and mango sticky rice (if they have it)

Andrea Adams: I got the Tom Kha soup with veggies, coconut broth is vegan (under $4) drunken noodles with tofu and veggies without fish sauce was flavorful and spicy and full of well prepared, crispy vegetables $8.

Willis Allen Real Estate: BEST Thai food ever! Super friendly staff and insanely good prices. Try the yellow curry or the gang panang curry! -Our La Jolla office administrator

Mercy Baron: Consider myself a Thai food afficianado. This is the best Thai I’ve had in SD. Better than Lotus Thai!

Jenn Michele: Just as amazing as the original. We love the pad thai with vegetables and the tofu massaman curry, both medium, and the fried spring rolls. We got takeout but can’t wait to dine in next time.

Paul Andrew Odejar: Everything is bomb. It’s a small cozy place that feels like home. And you can pretty much customize anything. Their most popular dish is the drunken noodles.

Carli: Everything is good here! We had the Egg drop soup, Massaman curry, Pad Thai and #54 (forgot what is called). Service was great too. Lots of parking spaces.

dennis lee: drunken noodles are great come for lunch and get soup and an eggroll! chili plate is awesome too !p

Stephen Lew: When determining how spicy you want your dish, choose a number between 1 to 10 (10 being inferno spicy) and subtract by 2. Their spiciness can get out of hand!

Ken Brucker: The lunch specials are a great value. Everything we’ve tried has been excellent
