We visit Swan Thai several times each month, especially on warm nights when we can sit outside and watch sunset. The patio has a lovely ocean view facing West, and we can eat here even in winter, thanks to space heaters. The curries are excellent here, with large portions. Service is excellent. I've only eaten indoors once here, but it's... More

We went for lunch on a visit to RPV. The food itself was fairly mediocre, but not bad. It struck me as generic Americanize "Asian food" more than Thai, but it could have been what we ordered. I had the Mongolian Beef lunch special, which I expected to be spicy, but it was rather mild. My partner had the Pad... More

We dined Al fresco. The view is gorgeous. The food is outstanding. We ordered 5 different dishes and all had different flavor profiles and all were equally delicious. I especially liked the spicy string beans with beef. Others loved the clay pot. The curry is excellent too. The service was attentive and immediate. Prices reasonable. I would recommend this restaurant... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary there because this restaurant is near our home, and it wasn't crowded. We were pleased because the food was pretty decent; not wonderful, but good. Frankly, good Thai food is hard to come by in this area. However, I must say, the Drunken Noodles were delicious. We also ordered green curry with chicken... More

Delicious Thai food with great sunset views. We ordered the yellow curry tofu, Pad Tai and ginger chicken. All of the dishes were delicious.

I went to this restaurant twice on a recent visit to RPV, once sitting outside on the patio overlooking the ocean and the other time seated indoors when too chilly in the evening. Very standard Thai fare however on both visits we had the Tom Kom Kai (coconut soup) - on first visit we ordered it vegetarian and the second... More

Spectacular sunset views on the patio. Standard but tasty Thai menu. Friendly service. No American Express. Other than that no complaints about this neighborhood Thai.

Been there many times, enjoyed it every time. Reasonable prices and a priceless view over the Pacific from the rear terrace...

Good food, great view, live music. What else do you want? I'm by no means a Thai food expert but this food is good and they readily suggested gluten-free options. I don't remember the name of what I selected, but it had rice noodles, chicken and shrimp. Very good. Everyone loved their dinner. The view is worth the trip alone.... More
