Description
Bangkok Bay offers some of San Diego's best Thai cuisine presented in a causal family setting. Outside the restaurant is a jungle of lush tropical plants, many native to Thailand, which meanders ... Read more
inside to find a calm tropical atmosphere, created with peaceful lighting, tables decorated with sarongs from northeastern Thailand, more tropical plants, ads for Singha beer, and a northern Thai house roof. The owners, TJ and VJ, have been in the restaurant business for many years. Together, along with their family members, they offer one of the most pleasant dinning experiences you will ever have. Seated comfortably in your high-back booth, you will be treated to the wonderful aroma of yellow and sweet green curries, glass and flat noodles in special house sauces, and entrees made with ginger, garlic and chili. The dishes are mostly northeastern Thai, where TJ is from, with thoughtful influences from other parts of Thailand and surrounding countries. Enjoy the comfort of Bangkok Bay or get takeout on your way to the race track.

Good food. Restaurant is somewhat hidden in the back corner of a small shopping center.

This cute and cozy restaurant is on old Highway 101, near the border of Solana Beach and Del Mar, in a little strip mall. It only has about a dozen tables, and has traditional Thai decorations everywhere. It is dark, yet casual and a nice choice if you are in the area. It may be Thai-Chinese managed, but I didn't confirm this. Some of the menu makes you think this maybe so, though.

The food and service are both good. Not spectacular, but you should feel satisfied with a pleasant experience, at least I did over a year ago.
They have about 12 appetizers, 4 soups including the traditional Tom Yum and Tom Kha. There are 4 salads, and the entrees are priced with Veggie or Tofu ($10), Chicken, Pork or Beef ($11), Shrimp or Squid ($12) and Seafood Combo ($15). There are both spicy and non-spicy flavors to choose from to mix with the meats. They have about half a dozen curries and about a dozen specialty dishes, including Duck and Salmon dishes, which run $11 - $17, except the 3 Flavor Fish is market priced. There is fried banana, ripe Mango, or coconut Ice Cream for dessert.

If you had a day at the Del Mar track, coming back from LegoLand, returning from the Parahamsa Yoginanda retreat in Encinitas, or just in the area, this could be a nice stop for Thai food.
