Just ok- not stellar like before , 1/27/2019
Reviewer: Dave from Santa Barbara, CA
I would not say it was bad , But definitely not as good as it used to be. Used to dine here quite often as our go to for Thai food in SB. Overall, It seems to have gone in that direction of losing a little bit of itís soul. The chicken satay tasted bland the peanut sauce seems like it was out of a jar and they no longer served a tasty little pie shaped bread with it . Yellow curry was OK and the chicken fried rice also a little bland . Service was attentive . Not excited to return.


New owners, real disappointment!, 11/16/2018
Reviewer: Shelley from Santa Barbara, CA
Been eating happily at Zen Yai for 20 years, maybe more. Changed ownership sometime around summer 2018, and quality has hit the skids. Pad Thai mushy, clearly not freshly made. Stir-fry similar, seemed like it was cooked hours earlier. Won't be going back.
