The Center of Thai Dining in Hillcrest.
Located in a high traffic strip mall, this Thai restaurant serves the best combination of flavor, portion and price for its dishes in town. The curries (not too thick and not too wet) are delicious and can be ordered with the widest selection of meats, or tofu, or mock. You do not have to look to hard to find other great noodles beyond their Pad thai, the spicy noodles (herb spicy flavor) or pad se-ew (sweet black bean flavor) are great alternatives. Attentative-professional service and nice dining atmosphere.
The traditional Thai dishes earn a place among Hillcrest's discerning Thai food community.. In Short Don't let its strip mall location dissuade you: this is the Thai food treasure of the Hillcrest hood. Bai Yook has been crowned best Thai food from a number of sources in San Diego, and locals flock to the intimate eatery for its five-star dishes at nearly fast-food prices. Insist on ried calamari paired with plum sauce and finish with sweet sticky rice with mango, Bai Yook's popular dessert.
