Relatively to other Thai restaurants in the area would rank this one above average on quality and also portion size. We tried a couple of curries, the Pad Thai, several starters and also their coconut rice and mango desert. The quality of the curries was quite good although I didn't think the Pad Thai was at the same quality level... More

Bangkok Bay is located in a small strip mall on Pacific Coast Hway (101) in Solana Beach. The location is not exciting but once you walk in the door, you are transported to another world. The owner is Thai and his love of his culture is indicated everywhere in the decor, as well as the amazing food!! The restaurant is... More

Taste of Thai had been our go-to restaurant for years because it was close and pretty tasty but it did didn't hold up compared to my favorites in other cities. We tried Bangkok Bay on a whim and BOY! what a great place. The atmosphere is tiki-like, the food is wonderful. The Summer Roll appetizer is great. The lettuce wrap... More

Great little spot tucked away inside small PCH shopping center. It can get pretty busy on weekends. Casual attire but interesting decor and enough closeness to make a date feel imitate within a busy setting. No delivery :-/ however it's worth stopping in for a meal. Attentive, friendly staff. I've been coming here for four years. Curries are good. Not... More

Food was good but not spicy. We ordered take out. It would have been better to eat in. Fresh vegetables. Steamed. I would have given it 3 1/2 stars if that had been an option.

We read the excellent reviews and were excited for a nice dinner on March 17th. reservations are recommended as the seating is limited. One reviewer had suggested not to be seated near the door (which was open) so we were seated in a back room. the décor in the back room was nice. Our horrible luck would have a group... More

If I had to choose again, I'd skip this place. Linda had a taste for Thai. We did a little research and the Bangkok received pretty good reviews, so we gave it a shot. We called in the order of mixed seafood special with Thai noodles and brought it home to eat. The food was a giant goop of pasty... More

Setting: Located on a strip mall with enough parking space. Interior decor is dark and with enough "kitch" from Thailand. Seating is kind of ok. Avoid the table right by the entrance, you will feel the air + crowds waiting for a table will be staring at your food and your conversation can get difficult. Food: We had noodles, the... More

Reasonably priced for lunch! Large portions and absolutely delicious! Take note there is not a lot of seating. Good service even though they were busy. Parking lot shared with other businesses. Location easy to find.
