To say it lacks ambiance is an understatement. Food is acceptable but not memorable. We never went back for a second try.

Did not live up to your other reviews on your site. It was okay but not great! I much prefer Phara Ram and Jade for flavor , service and atmosphere. Food tasted like fast food as it was lacking in depth and freshness of flavors.

Very nice Lady who runs this place, takes much pride in serving top rate Thai food. Vast array of food to choose from. Service is also first rate, and all with a great attitude. You will not go wrong here.

El Cajon isn't exactly a hot bed of asian cooking but lately a few good restaurants have started to show up and Finest Thai is one of them. Run by a Cambodian family, you are usually greeted by the owners friendly (and talkative) daughter. This is a small place, nothing fancy, located in the target store parking lot. The wife... More
