The thai food here is great! the lunch specials are a good deal and come with a spring roll, soup and salad. When they ask you 1-10 spicy rating be advised that the spicy here is SPICY! Normally I can take really spicy foods, but even a 6 is too much for me. Also, most people would say that thai food is supposed to be spicy, but I really like Pad-sewee (my favorite Thai dish) when it's not as spicy so I can taste the beef and egg with noodle.

I love Thai food! I was lucky enough to discover Spices Thai in Carmel Valley. It's one of the best Thai restaurants here in North County. Prices are very reasonable. Parking can be a problem during lunch rush hour between 11:30-12:30.

Perhaps the best Thai food in San Diego? Tes, quite possibly. Be sure to start with the fresh veggie spring rolls - which are stunning!!! The curry dishese excellent, but my favorite is the yellow curry, with chicken, spicy level 7. Very popular location for lunch.

In a word: excellent. The Thai food in this restaurant, located in the Von's shopping center in Carmel Valley (just off Highway 56), is fresh, authentic and tasty.I have never taken a friend or out-of-town visitor to this place and gotten a bad review--even from an uppity Manhattan-ite who swore NYC's Thai food couldn't be topped. After dinner, she readily admitted it was the best Thai she'd ever tasted. Another friend, who has been to Thailand many times, loves this restaurant--her favorite dish is the Green Papaya Salad.
My husband and I usually get the fresh veggie spring rolls and Spices Kai Curry chicken--a large dish with bone-in chicken breast surrounded by potatoes, onions and carrots in a rich, thick coconut curry sauce. I've heard the seafood and Panang curries and the spicy eggplant dish are also very good.
You can choose the spiciness level of your food on a 1-10 scale. Be careful. I saw a young woman in the restaurant one night actually crying because she'd ordered her food too spicy hot. We usually go for a 4 or 5 tops.The service here is friendly, efficient and though the restaurant has a classy ambiance, you'll feel at home there in jeans.

i came here for lunch and had the pad thai with bbq pork. i though that it was just ok. it came with won tons, soup and a salad. if you dine in, the restaurant is really nice and the service, friendly. if i need a quick fix for lunch and i'm nearby, i'd probably go back. but there are other good thai restaurants elsewhere.

In Short
A casually elegant dining area and affordable prices make this Thai restaurant a local favorite. Regulars rave about the extensive menu choices, attentive service and the 1-10 spice scale that allows diners to select the…
