If you're looking for delicious Thai food- this is the place. Do not come for the ambiance. This is an order at the counter, look for an open table and tuck in sort of place. Very friendly staff and loads of dishes to choose from. A quick lunch or casual dinner. Check hours or call before driving over as they... More

The brothers, Paul and Tom,need I say more to anyone who has frequented "Thailand in SLO" 😄The brothers welcome you as if you are family. As soon as you place one foot in the restaurant, "Hello, how have you been?" Way to set the welcome bar "way up there!" The brothers always smiling, welcoming, very happy. The food on a... More

I had read about this place since moving to the area. But sin ce we have good Thai food in the 5 Cities area, we never bothered to go to SLO for this cuisine. Now that I work in SLO and have some time for lunch, hubby and I decided to have lunch together. He had heard from a dear... More

The food is great and the service and friendliness can't be beat. However, I feel like their prices are getting a bit steep for lunch. It's still always packed for lunch so obviously most people disagree. Still a good experience

We've been here three times. Each time I got there green curry with chicken, and my wife got the pad won sen. Although this is a small storefront with limited capacity, and often a line out the door, the service is pretty quick. It's a favorite student place since it's fairly cheap and casual and does a good takeout business.... More

as mentioned before, there will be a line but it moves quickly and will be worth it. snag a table directly upon entry. save it somehow because the place is small. if need be, keep an eye out while in line for someone about to leave and make your move. tom yum soup incredible. everything just truly fresh and authentic....

beware as they are NOT open on the weekends; they have found their niche though and people are willing to "pack the house" during the week. worth a drive down broad street. for about $25.

The service was probably the best in town! All smiles, very friendly, and even gave my child a free popsicle! But curry I ordered was overly sweet, and the iced thai coffee wasn't drinkable, and love iced thai coffee! This one was just bad. My husband got pad see-ew, and liked it, so I think i'll try a different dish... More

I had lunch here today with my niece. She likes her food HOT! Our meals were delicious, the staff were all friendly. The even offered my niece a Popsicle in case her food was too hot. ( It wasn't). Thumbs up!
