About 15 years ago, we visited this restaurant as part of a work function and I was reasonably impressed with it back then but, at the time, we didn't live close enough to make it back. Well, we've since moved closer and finally had a chance to go back and I am glad we did. My wife wanted Thai food... More

The food and service were very good. Delicious noodle soup. I will definitely return. The restaurant itself needs a face lift and some serious repair work in the Ladies restroom

So, unlike my friend that accompanied me to this restaurant, I have never been to Thailand. I just know I love a good Pad Thai. This chicken pas Thai was excellent. I tried the chicken satay which was delectable and I tried a shrimp appetizer, so good. Everything was great. The service was okay, not spectacular but with delicious food... More

I'm sure people from my city (Dubuque, IA) will say this is the best thai restaurant. To me it is ok. Not bad. I'm sure a lot of people here will say good. The price is really cheap given it is Santa Ana area. I had pad thai and thai tea for $12. What a steal!

It's in a shopping area, unassuming is a good word for this place. They didn't even have the lights on when I came in around 12pm. They do have lots of natural light coming through the windows but it's a very black resturant. Serve was fine, but not Sweet. Food was fine, good portions and flavors. Prices are good, too.... More

When it comes to Thai food I'm a snob and this place didn't disappoint. Had the coconut soup and then the green curry chicken. My friend had the drunken noodles with beef. Service was awesome too.

Our first time to George's and wow it's amazing and seriously cheap for La! The Tum yum noodle bowl is HUGE and the southern fried chicken and rice are my W favs!

Nothing special. There is no mix of complex aromas and flavors in a single dish. But if you are looking for good standard Thai food and you live in the neighborhood and don't want to drive too far - you really can't go wrong. I tried several different dishes - they are all good - not exceptional but good. And... More

Found George's Thai Bistro on a fluke returning to the hotel. This is authentic Thai food in a mall like setting, don't be fooled or discouraged, this is great food! Some pretty fantastic service too.
