“Really good Thai Food.”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Cruising down PCH and feeling hungry? Cholada Thai has you covered. Great location, you can see the Pacific Ocean while you eat, and really nice Thai food. Family run and totally authentic. Really fresh and nice. Quaint atmosphere.

“Quant little place”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Our whole family are huge fans of Thai food. We gave this place a shot and must say, we were not disappointed at all. The staff are excellent and very friendly. The menu is extensive for such a place, but the food is fantastic.

“A fun place for a fresh fish meal....take out is great, too.”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

We enjoy this tiny house with lots of choices and they always have specials. The regular staff are very friendly and eager to please.Some newer staff have difficulty with English and make mistakes on orders. Soups and fried rice dishes offer a good variety. Going early for dinner--5:00 is a good idea and you will usually find a seat. There is a back patio if you are interested in outdoor dining and you have a party of more than 4.

“Roadside gem on the way to Malibu”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

This place was crowded at 3:30 in the afternoon, so a lot of people must like it as much as we did! There were no indoor tables available when we got there so they seated us outside on the "deck". Wish there had been an ocean view, but it was a beautiful day to sit outside at a picnic table and enjoy being with our daughter and her boyfriend. We weren't all that familiar with Thai food and luckily our daughter was and helped us navigate the menu -- which was extensive. The server was attentive, the service was fast and the beer was very cold. All four of us loved everything we ordered, from a standard shrimp and asparagus dish to spicey salmon to golden bags. I'm not sure how our daughter discovered this restaurant (she lives in L.A. and we were visiting), but I'm glad she did -- it was great!
