8 of us got a table readily and ordered the banquet, the portions were good and the food tasty. One of our party had a food allergy and that was dealt with. Our server's english led to problems, but her supervisor was helpful. Recommend for a nice Thai meal.

In the Christmas Eve it is usually hard to find a restaurant to welcome. Let alone the warm hospitality and perfect food. The Thai Island was a perfect place to call to dine in. Full selection of Thai cuisine with seafood and really warming dishes. The famous Yom Sum hot soup was a good start. Followed by wide variety of... More

Very good panang curry & pad thai. They were out of fresh spring roll wraps when I was there so that was kind of a bummer. Good service, busy LITTLE place. I love Thai food & have eaten at many different spots all over the US (have yet to make it to Thailand!) & this was delicious. Veggies were fresh... More

You wouldn't think that a tiny place hidden among a sea other tiny places would be so good, but it is... The restaurant has a few tables inside and a small patio - It's always busy at lunch but the service is fast and the food always comes out consistently fresh and tasty. The strange thing about the place is... More

We ate here on Thursday night and it was extremely good. It is located in downtown San Diego, only minutes from the zoo. The phrase "don't judge a book by it's cover" is written specifically for this restaurant. When we walked in the door, we were greeted by the nicest lady in San Diego. She is the owner of the...

Firstly, this is not in La Jolla as the Tripadvisor listing suggests but Downtown, between B & C streets. It is located within a block of Copely Hall. We arrived early for a symphony performance and was delighted to find this small, cosy restaurant. As we only had 30 minutes to spare, staff suggested dishes which were very quick to... More
