This is a small little café in a strip mall in Encinitas. Kohl's is in this same shopping center. The food is cooked to order. You get it hot and be careful about how spicy you want it. I said medium which is a 4, and I got really spicy. It was delicious though! They have brown rice which is... More

We were in town from Indiana and looking for Thai food and happened upon this place. My husband had the basil beef and I had the pineapple curry and we split the Tom yum soup. Everything was good. Portions were a little smaller than I expected. We got the soup a 8 on the spicy scale and it was too... More

Great service, low prices, authentic Thai food, with all Thai servers. When you order a spicy "8", it's hot!

My favorite is : rice noodles with calamari! If you're a curry lover that is you place! Excellent service and waitress truly welcoming. You can eat inside in soft Thailand environment or outside in front of the parking. Don't come for the view, come for the food.

We have been coming to this restaurant on a regular basis for years and it has always had tasty good food. However we went there tonight looking forward to the usual food, but it was awful. The pad thai, which is a pretty basic dish, came out with watery noodles and no flavor, as if the noodles had just been... More

Each time we go to Thai Pan Cuisine we try something different and virtually everything is top of the line delicious. The silver noodles (thin noodles) melt in your mouth. The 3 item seafood dish is cooked to perfection with brown or white rice. It's a funky out of the way restaurant in a strip mall but the atmosphere and... More

The interior was pleasant and the service very nice. They had a good selection of items on the menu and they were reasonably priced. I was not dissatisfied but nothing made me feel like I wanted to return soon. Flavors were somewhat weak. Some vegetable pieces were too large and tough (under-cooked) to be cut without a knife but I... More

This is one of my favorite lunch spots. Their food is delicious and the service is friendly and fast. I've been here many times for dining in, as well as takeout. It's a small restaurant for casual dining, so it's not somewhere you'd go for a romantic meal. But, it's my favorite Thai restaurants in the area and I've never... More
