The appetizers, soups and first plates are really, really, way beyond average Thai food. The entree was good but not as special as the appetizers.

Sometimes you've got to try it without knowing what you're in for. Lanna is located in a small strip mall next to Sushi Ota. Once inside, the atmosphere was calming and spacious even though just about every table was taken. Thai cuisine is one of our favorites having been to a number of excellent ones in the San Francisco Bay... More

Lanna is one of our favorite restaurants for good food and casual (yet slightly sophisticated) dining. The interior decor is creative and well designed. We often bring friends here for lunch and dinner, as a result, Lanna is now on our friends' list of favorite local restaurants, too.

The curries and noodles all have tofu or mock duck as potential choices, along with meat/seafood. The curries are a bit sweet for my tastes but the spinach wrap with tofu starter was absolutely delicious. It's a really nice restaurant overall.

If you like Thai food, this place is excellent. Great food and wonderful service! It is very busy so we went early. It fills quickly at dinner time.

The food was prepared very well and everything was quite tasty and good size portions. The service was friendly, helpful and efficient. All in all a good place for very good... More

Lanna Thai is an attractive restaurant with pleasant service, large portions, and fair prices. The food was very disappointing. Our two very different dishes appeared to have much the same seasoning--salt and heat. The thick noodles with chicken was reasonably good. The beef with green beans was selected from the "Wok" section, but it seemed to have been steamed rather... More
