Been coming here for 15 years, starting when still living in Scripps Ranch. Now I order on-line using 24EatYelp and order is waiting for me when I drive down from Ramona. Definitely worth the round trip. We usually order the Fresh Spring Rolls with Tofu...More

Very tasty Thai food. We often get ours to go.......Partially due to service that can border on angry. So skip the service and the tip. Get the food to go and have great Thai at home.

Glad you love our food! Though service should definitely be as amazing as our Thai dishes -- if you ever feel like you're being mistreated, please don't hesitate to ask for a manager. Best wishes, Takhrai Thai

Very disappointed in thus restaurant. Ordered Jasmine tea and was given a VIP with a tea bag. The fried noodle dish was tasteless and the noodles never saw a fry pan. They were just wide noodles. The medium spiced dish was too spicy and another...More

My friends and I decided to try Takhrai Thai after reading all of the wonderful reviews. We went around 5:00 so it was early for a Saturday night. We got seated right away. We handed the waitress our $25 off coupon. She was very unfriendly...More

Tried it out on a weekday-popular place, but plenty of room. Atmosphere was pleasant, very easy to talk (not loud), and food was excellent.

We had been to the sister restaurant of Takhrai Thai, Lai Thai, many times. This one is more upscale with a completely different menu. The presentation was spectacular. Especialy for the "Love Boat" entree. The food was good, spiced just right. And very good service.

Thank Kathy D

Kathy, thanks for reaching out! We're glad to hear you loved our elevated atmosphere and our focus on presentation. The Love Boat entree is almost too beautiful to eat -- almost. We're looking forward to seeing you again soon! Until next time, Takhrai Thai

My only issue with Takhrai Thai is that it is not closer to my house. I'd be a weekly customer for sure if it were. They offer a nice selection of options and I have never been disappointed with a selection. In addition to enjoying...More
