I found Supannee through the tripadvisor app. The reviews were generally good and the location was perfect as we wanted something out of the craziness of San Diego in the Gas Lamp District. This restaurant is in a strip mall and the address was hard to find in the dark.
We arrived 15 minutes before closing, at 9:15 p.m. We were told we had to make quick decisions as to our food choices, as the cook was turning off the grill in 10 minutes. We had two students visiting from Austria and one had never had Thai food before. Since we didn't have time to review the menu thoroughly, we ordered Pad Thai, Chicken Skewers and Chicken and Broccoli.
The chicken skewers were plump and probably one of the best we have ever eaten. Unfortunately the waitress removed the plate with the marinated cucumbers before we had eaten the cucumbers. The Pad Thai wasn't as sweet as my daughter likes, but it was perfect for my husband, myself, and our students. The Chicken and Broccoli needed more sauce, but the ingredients were very fresh.
Unfortunately the meal was very very rushed. And, as I have stated in prior reviews, I hate people mopping floors and crash banging around as they clean while I am enjoying a meal.
This restaurant has excellent food, and the ambiance is very nice, but the owners need to work on customer service. Since we spent $80 and we were rushed out the door before 10:00 p.m. on a Saturday night, this restaurant earned two stars, but since the food is excellent, I am giving them 3 stars.
