Yummy Food
Reviewer: Nancy from Santa Barbara
We hadn't been here in several years. My husband was fighting a cold and I thought Thai Hot and Spicey Soup would help. We came here because of its location. All of the food was so wonderful! The soup made my husband feel better. We will definitely be back.

Very Good to Excellent
Reviewer: Rob from Goleta, CA
On Sunday evenings, I often have a taste for a carry out and I have never been disappointed. My favorites are the chicken wings and bbq spareribs on the appetizer menu, and the seafood delight and the crispy duck on the main menu. Sometimes, just an appetizer is enough, along with a small salad or vegigies I make at home. I'll have to try some of their other dishes!

Great for big groups and parties!

I came here last night for a graduation dinner celebration with a large party of about 14 people and it was perfect! The restaurant has a fun and enjoyable environment and the servers were very upbeat and attentive. Our food was prepared quickly and was absolutely delicious. Because we ordered so much food, I was able to get a taste of so many of their dishes and I loved them all; especially the pad Thai. This was my first time at Pattaya and I am definitely coming back again!

Best Thai around
Reviewer: Charlotte from Goleta
Almost giving up on finding decent Thai food, we went back to Pattaya, after 6 years ( it wasn't very good when they first opened). Gave them another shot after reading all the fabulous reviews and very glad we did. Now it's in our short list of places to eat out. The place is clean, nice Asian music playing, nice young man running the food, super grumpy waitress but served us well. The food was spectacular! Pad Thai was cooked perfectly, layers of lime, coconut, peanut, cilantro. Coconut, shrimp soup was very good, no mushrooms next time. Big chunks of raw button mushrooms?? Green papaya salad was good as well. Best Thai we've had around.

Best Thai in a long time. Nothing negative to say.

Great First Visit
Reviewer: Jay from Santa Barbara, CA
First time to Pattaya. Great food, great flavors. Would definitely visit again. As others have mentioned ambiance needs some work but looks like they are remodeling part of it. The food makes up for it. Service was good--they were a little busy and only two server/cook/owner seemed to be there but they were still attentive.

Yum! Really great food!
Reviewer: Martha from Santa Barbara, CA
Consistently good. Incredible flavors. This has become a favorite place to eat.

Went for the first time last night and loved it!! Great Thai food for a reasonable price. Will be making this place one of our regular places for sure!

Love love love the "southern comfort" it's the best here . Great price . Just wish they were open on weekends .every time I'm craving Thai somehow it's always the weekend and it's like ahhh gotta wait till monday . They close at 2:30pm tool and open later for dinner crowd . Try their food u will be glad u did. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Lol

Best thai food ever!
Reviewer: Chris from Santa Barbara, CA
I've lived in Thailand for a little while so I'm pretty picky when it comes to Thai food. After having the pa nang veggie tofu and Pad Thai I'm totally hooked. I'm here at least once a week.

Reviewer: Adrian from Santa Barbara, CA
Great food. The Crispy Basil Chicken Wings are some of the best chicken wings I've every had (Highly recommended). Not the best service, but that's just how they operate; they let their food do the talking. So don't run off because nobody is there to greet you at first. The building needs a Joan-Rivers-of-a-face-lift, but don't let that scare you off, the food inside is Great!

Disappointing pad thai and not the best service
Reviewer: Matt from Santa Barbara, CA
Subpar overall: I had the Pad Thai which was disappointing in how soupy it was. Good Pad Thai needs to be dry and stick together. They didn't have my first choice of beer and wine listed on their menu. They brought out the wrong wine, which I had to ask to get removed from the bill. The place was pretty empty, yet it was hard to get the waiter's attention for water, which should really just be offered. I was also confused by the fact that the menu only listed about five vegetarian options, instead of the standard way of every dish has a choice of meat/veggie/tofu.
