“Tasty Thai take-out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013 via mobile

Had the pad Thai, chicken curry and basil shrimp. 3 peppers spice level was pretty weak, go for 4 if you Eat thai regularly. Quick service and solid Thai option in the area. Will definitely eat here again when in Encinitas.

“Good choice for Thai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2013

I've eaten here many times, and almost every time has been exceptionally good - the only disappointment has been when they did not have any spring rolls - my favorite appetizer - try the tom gha soup - very delicious and the setting is cozy

“Gem on a whim”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2013

I lucked I up on this restaurant while strolling through downtown Encinitas. I couldn't help but make note of the many people that came in for egg rolls to go. It was almost comical. I had a lovely meal. The service was superb and friendly. I was dining alone so this was especially welcome.

“Outstanding place...we went there twice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2013

We were recommended this place by a local and thoroughly enjoyed it! The food was outstanding and our server was awesome. The first time we ate in and then ordered takeout on our last night in Encinitas. It was busy both times but waited not long at all. My son ordered the vegetable rice dish which he ate every morsel of on his plate. We also ordered the "sampler" appetizer which was outstanding.

“Great alternatives”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2013

We are Thai afficionados and we are always wary of Pad Thai serving restaurants. This place rocks! Great variety of choices, extremely well prepared and reasonable! Staff is friendly and very accomodating.
