I've been coming to this restaurant (both dine-in and take out) for ten years and my family members, friends and I have never had a bad meal. The food is always fresh and prepared well. The restaurant itself appears very clean and the staff is pleasant. There are always people in the restaurant, but it never seems noisy. It's the... More

Very disappointed in thus restaurant. Ordered Jasmine tea and was given a VIP with a tea bag. The fried noodle dish was tasteless and the noodles never saw a fry pan. They were just wide noodles. The medium spiced dish was too spicy and another medium spiced dish was not at all spicy. This is the first and probably the... More

We're just as surprised as we are disappointed to hear you weren't 100% impressed with your most recent visit. We take our dedication to pristine customer service just as seriously as we do every dish that leaves our kitchen. We sure hope you'll give us another shot at proving that to you. Looking forward to the opportunity, Takhrai Thai More

My friends and I decided to try Takhrai Thai after reading all of the wonderful reviews. We went around 5:00 so it was early for a Saturday night. We got seated right away. We handed the waitress our $25 off coupon. She was very unfriendly and a bit cold toward us. I ordered a glass of wine and one of... More

Tried it out on a weekday-popular place, but plenty of room. Atmosphere was pleasant, very easy to talk (not loud), and food was excellent.

We had been to the sister restaurant of Takhrai Thai, Lai Thai, many times. This one is more upscale with a completely different menu. The presentation was spectacular. Especialy for the "Love Boat" entree. The food was good, spiced just right. And very good service.

Kathy, thanks for reaching out! We're glad to hear you loved our elevated atmosphere and our focus on presentation. The Love Boat entree is almost too beautiful to eat -- almost. We're looking forward to seeing you again soon! Until next time, Takhrai Thai More

My only issue with Takhrai Thai is that it is not closer to my house. I'd be a weekly customer for sure if it were. They offer a nice selection of options and I have never been disappointed with a selection. In addition to enjoying dinners there it is nice as a lunch option. The setting is nice decor wise...

We flew into San Diego and needed some good, nutritious food to start our vacation. Takhrai Thai turned out to be an excellent choice recommended by the hotel staff. The food was fresh and delicious with generous portions that were tasty when reheated the next day for lunch. The Pad Thai was outstanding and other entrees were nice additions. We... More

Our family decided to try this place rather than drive downtown in search of Thai. The place is located in a strip mall close to Scripps Ranch, and we had heard good things about the food. We were all impressed! We had spring rolls and angel wings for starters, which were both good. I had the cashew dish with rice... More

One of the very best Thai meals I have eaten. A comfortable, attractive restaurant in a modern California strip mall. I had a yellow Curry chicken lunch, with a very tasty and spicy soup. I will be visiting again. Worth the trip to find this secluded treasure.
