Some of the best Thai we’ve ever had! Unless you’re super lucky to catch a table, plan to take the food to go. We almost decided against going here because of the paper plates in their pictures, but ...I’m so glad we went for it. Definitely worth a try. See More

Fresh and delicious!! It’s a small space with a few tables inside. We usually sit outside. Paper plates and plastic cups. But that’s ok! The food is bomb

The Massaman curry was literally the best thing to have ever touched my lips.

Amazing food and not an overpriced establishment like most places in SD seem to be these days!

While tiny and informal, this Thai eatery serves up delicious, piping hot meals at an extraordinary rate.
We were greeted with smiling faces, always a great introduction. When we said it was our firs...t time at the restaurant, our reception was even more warm and friendly.
Though very busy, we placed our order immediately, and took a table inside so we could watch the counter and see what other customers ordered.
I ordered Panang curry with fish, and my date ordered drunken noodles. We also ordered chicken Satay for an appetizer.
The Satay showed up very quickly, but was very hot and tender.
Our orders quickly arrived on doubled paper plates. I was taken aback by how generous the portions were and how delicious the aroma and flavors were.
The Panang was delicious, the white rice, (brown is also available), was perfect.
The Drunken noodles were delicious, the spicing and flavors were as good as any I have tasted.
We simply could not finish our meals, and happily we found little to-go boxes readily at hand!
There is even a drinking water station by the counter for those that thought ordering spicy level ten would be fun.
I had a great experience at this little eatery. I would recommend it highly!

Best Thai in the city! Pineapple fried rice, yellow curry, massaman curry, bai grapow and the spring rolls are all amazing! The spice level varies, sometimes I'll say spice level 8 and it's on the mil...d side and sometimes it will melt your face off... but it's always delicious! See More

Definitely yummy eats! The place would be worthy of 5 stars if it were larger and had ample seating. But don't let that deter you from ordering takeout from this place. It's definitely worth it.

I would highly recommended Bahn Thai restaurant, the foods are beyond my expectation, good quality, big portion and the seasoning are just right! ...and its the BEST thai foods I've ever ate. The rest...aurant is small, about 3 tables inside and there r a few on the sidewalk, its clean and great service. I would definitely return when I come back to town.

My favorite Thai in Southern California! If you go during the dinner rush be prepared to wait for a table and bring a jacket. It's a small place with most of its tables outside. Really the best and mo...st authentic flavor. I recommend any of the curries, the pad see ew, and the cream cheese wonton thingys (I tried to spell it, I can't. You know what I'm talking about). Very reasonably priced for a heaping plate of food! See More

great restaurant, and if you are not into spicy food like me you can ask for it non spicy, also their thai tea is great.

My favorite Thai spot! Spice levels are accurate, good quality ingredients. Place is too small to sit in so it makes a really good take out meal that looks nice on dinner plates. To go containers are ...also really nice and have good snap on lids (no crummy styrofoam or paper plates wrapped in foil! They take phone orders and is definitely advised during dinner times! ❤️ See More

The food was fantastic. Enough food where I took the rest home with me. Outside seating which worked out perfect. I recommend anyone who enjoys Thai to definitely take the drive

Good food - very authentic . Staff is friendly and caters to customer taste requirements. Space is limited for dine in but tasty food makes up for it.

Must try for San Diegans - highly recommended
