Erawan Thai Cuisine 

Good Pad Thai, although not the best in Rancho Bernardo. Soup/salad with lunch special, terrible. Felt like I was eating lunch in a funeral home.

Pailin Thai Cafe 

Still the best Pad Thai lunch special in SoCal!  Especially prepared with the BBQ pork.  Even the spicy Thai soup appetizer is tasty.  If you’re ever in the Rancho Bernardo area, this place is well worth the visit!


Lemongrass Thai Food 

After the terrible pad thai at Lemongrass, I promised to go back and try a curry dish – I’m glad I did!  I got the Lunch Special Yellow Curry (with chicken) for only $6.95. There’s a fair amount of chicken in a rich, flavorful and savory coconut milk broth with yellow curry paste, onions, carrots and potatoes. There was a lot more chicken than potatoes which I appreciated! Served with a side of rice and soup to start. Did not care for today’s soup though. Some sort of bland egg drop loaded with a ton of corn! At least it came out hot… This was a really good curry dish that I would come back and order again.


Panya Thai Kitchen

Outstanding Pad Thai at Panya.  And so beautifully presented as well in lunch special form.  Very much like what I get at Pailin Thai.  I think these restaurants might be run by the same owner.  Very similar menu too.  


Pailin Thai Cafe

My favorite lunch special Panang Curry!  I like how Pailin serves this all on one dish.  Typically the curry lunch specials are segregated into distinct dishes roughly the size of a large ashtray.  Eating here saves the headache of coalescing everything on the plate.  

  

Pailin Thai Cafe

My new favorite curry is Panang!  And I appreciate how Pailin plates it so I can easily mix it in with the rice.  I’m not a fan of  restaurants who serve their Thai curries in a separate vessel.
