Tried this spot for lunch today with a friend who's been here before. I've not tried it before because the outside is unassuming and it always looks like it's closed. I'm glad I went today. Tried the Basil Chicken lunch special on our waiter's recommendation and was not disappointed. You get soup and salad with the lunch portion, which was... More

Stopped after arriving at the Santa Barbara airport, it's on the way to the freeway and only a mile away. Had the lunch special #2 which was Panang Curry with chicken which was excellant. Reasonably priced and the perfect sized lunch portions which included a small salad and a cup of soup.

I travel quite a bit for work and have access to Thai restaurants all over, including the Bay Area, but Pattaya is my favorite of all. The main reason is the food is obviously fresh. The vegetables and meat are not leftover / warm-ups. Everything is cooked fresh to order and made quick. I have taken numerous friends and business... More

My wife wanted to go to dinner, I wanted to stay home. I did what every male is required to do - go! I travel frequently to Thailand so I do have a sense for authentic food. I have always driven by this place but never stopped, it never looked open from the front. So this was my first time... More

Airy, spacious and well lit place with a solarium front. Friendly and helpful wait staff. The sea food curry tasted fresh, creamy, and with tame heat for Thai hot. There are expansive selection of Thai dishes to try for next trip.

I love Thai food. I could make it at home, but my family doesn't care for it as much and mine just isn't as good as this place. I get the lunch special, and always the chicken curry (because I don't come often and I love it!) But the rest of the lunch specials look really good too. My coworkers... More

Been here for both lunch and dinner. Great specials at lunch and nice selection of beers for dinner. Never fully booked - always a table open. Service is nice and fast. Nice selection of food on menu. They have about 10 different types of bottle beer - domestic and imported. I really like the Garlic Chicken and Basil Chicken dishes.... More

If you love thai food this is the place to be. The service is not so good and takes time for the order placed. The waiters are not aware of how to serve the food and bring the order in parts and they don't even let you know what they have brought , you have to guess it. Over all... More

Inexpensive ($12-15 entrees) Tai food that tastes very good. My friend and I shared a big soup and a seafood plate, and like both of them very much.
