Great location with close parking. Fast service, excellent quality, with nice size portions. Large selection of items and you get to select the degree of spice. Nice decor. Will come again.

Sometimes you've got to try it without knowing what you're in for. Lanna is located in a small strip mall next to Sushi Ota. Once inside, the atmosphere was calming and spacious even though just about every table was taken. Thai cuisine is one of our favorites having been to a number of excellent ones in the San Francisco Bay... More
