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!


Charm Thai Kitchen

Outstanding garlic crab fried rice at Charm Thai Kitchen in Rancho Bernardo!

Thai Dishes

Kind of a trippy Thai restaurant in the El Segundo/Inglewood area called Thai Dishes. It reminds me of one other Thai place that I’ve been where I compared it to eating in a funeral home. The staff was just so depressing and lifeless. The Pad Thai was tasty and the decor sufficiently lively and tacky though.

Pailin Thai Cafe

Outstanding Panang curry lunch special at Pailin Thai Cafe in Rancho Bernardo! Somewhat on the thick side but still very tasty.

Pei Wei Asian Diner

I don’t think it’s on their menu anymore, but this Thai curry dish was very tasty!

Charm Thai Kitchen

Outstanding Pad Thai lunch special at Charm Thai Kitchen in Rancho Bernardo!

Lemongrass Thai Food

Quick one today! I’m no fan of the Pad Thai at Lemongrass Thai Food, however their fried rice dishes are outstanding. Here’s the “Combination Fried Rice”, made with stir fried steamed jasmine rice with egg, chicken, beef, pork, onions, tomatoes, green onions, etc. Only $10.95.

Pinto Thai

Outstanding Pad Thai at Pinto Thai in Ramona! Some of the best you’ll find in SoCal. Particularly good combination style, made with beef, chicken, pork and shrimp.

Pei Wei Asian Diner

Not the most legit Pad Thai, but I really appreciate that I can get all of my Asian favorites under one roof.  Pei Wei’s menu is inspired by ancient Asian cooking, from the wok-fired classics of China to the street market tastes of Thailand.

Panya Thai Kitchen 

My favorite Thai restaurant in Escondido is Panya Thai Kitchen!  Here’s an outstanding dinner order of their excellent Pad Thai.  I ordered this one with shrimp.  The shrimps were abundant and perfectly cooked.
