The only time I went in to White Sand was with a couple of friends. They were hosting live music that night and, sorry but I couldn't hear a thing, the music was so loud. I heard the food is good, I just haven't been back. :(

tucked into the south side of a shopping center, this is a bit hard to find--unless you know it is on the south side of the center ... and around the corner. Very good food. fresh and healthy. reasonably priced. Nice server.

This is a great place to pull up a few chairs on the front patio and people watch on Main Street. Generous portions and no problem with service. The spring rolls were especially nice. Enjoyed a chicken dish which had lots of meat and good flavour. Spouse had pad thai which also was very tasty.

We ate at The White Sand for the second time last week. I think that this is one of the best Thai restaurants I have ever visited. The food was fresh and delicious. They have an interesting drink menu, I would suggest the Mekong Whiskey cocktail. Service was excellent and our waitress was delightful. The White Sands will definitely be... More

Thailand is one of my most favorite places on the planet , and I so happen to love the food as well. WhiteSand delivers a very warm , friendly atmosphere and the most authentic offering of Thai dishes and curries in Ventura. Everything is consistently fresh, mouthwatering, well presented and generous in portions. Being in the center of downtown also... More

My wife chose this restaurant for us both after a good dining experience there at a birthday luncheon with friends. She loved the pad Thai, and I heartily concur. The ambiance is beachy and faux Hawaiian, with memorabilia that is appropriate for a restaurant only a couple blocks from the ocean. Mood music was Hawaiian, sung in the native language.... More

We thought the food here was 'ok'... Nothing to rave about or complain about. The odd thing was that we went on a Saturday night and there was only one other couple in the place. Always makes us wonder. If we had been in Ventura longer, we would have tried the other Thai restaurants that are in the area.

The White Sand Thai makes for a great refreshing stop when driving between Los Angeles and Central California (or, if staying in Ventura!). Very light and tasty vegetable non-fried spring rolls with a spicy peanut sauce. No disappointments with any of the entrées, be it a noodle dish, a curry or another entrée. It has all been good with fresh... More

Went her with the two teens on 2/16/13 in the mid day. There is nice seating outside at the entrance, and the inside is very attractive, too, which is where we sat. It wasn't packed but not empty either. The service is attentive and cheerful. We ordered 3 Thai dishes we have never had before-the Tom Kha seafood, Pad see... More

We usually eat at Tipp's when we are in Ventura. We decided to try something new and ate at White Sand. The Pad Thai was excellent, I don't really like seafood but my wife ordered a dish that contained mussels, crab, calamari, shrimp, etc. The ingrediants were very fresh and I ended up really enjoying it and would order it...
