Just had take out for lunch. Two dishes, chicken sweet basil and panang curry with tofu. ugh. Way too salty. I could not eat either, and the bill was almost $30. I'll not return.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Santa Barbara. Lots of vegetarian dishes to choose from and great taste. We love this place and recommend it to anybody that loves Thai food😊

Excellent choice of Thai food and always busy. We usually go for the take-out so we can enjoy at home. Pad Thai, drunken noodles, eggplant dishes, spring rolls are just a few of the delicious items.

Meun Thai is located in a tiny parking lot off Cliff Dr. (near Lazy Acres) on the Mesa in Santa Barbara. Owned by a lovely Thai woman, the food is fresh, authentic, and delicious. It is our go-to restaurant for Thai food. Sometimes we will...More
