Thai food is perfect if you're looking for fresh, healthy meals that don't sacrifice flavor.

Featuring aromatic ingredients and a spicy kick that will awaken your taste buds, these dishes will leave you satisfied. Check out these SLO spots for some of the tastiest Thai cuisine on the Central Coast.


Thai Palace has built a dedicated fan base over the past 20 years by crafting classic Thai dishes with locally sourced, fresh ingredients. The modern ambiance brings out the colors of Thailand, with original artwork by Thai artists, a hand-painted mirror and carefully crafted fountains throughout the dining area. Their Pad Thai is not to be missed, perfectly blending your choice of meat with fresh veggies, spices, and, of course, cooked to perfection noodles that will leave your mouth watering. Their staff is friendly and attentive, and happy to make your dish vegetarian if requested.


Stop by My Thai if you're looking for a quick bite close to the train station or need a casual spot to unwind with friends. A relaxed atmosphere and affordable prices paired with a diverse menu have made My Thai a local favorite. If you have time for a full dinner, sit down and try the Flame Seared Ahi Tuna. My Thai's chefs put a Thai twist on the California classic, searing fresh Ahi with a black sesame coating and serving it alongside spicy asparagus. The lunch specials are a bit cheaper and feature all the Thai classics you'll be sure to love.


Thai Boat is a small, family owned restaurant perfect for no frills dining or tasty takeout. Order at the counter and grab a seat outside to soak up the sun with authentic noodles and curries. Their beef Pad See-Ew is a fresh take on the popular Thai street food, balancing sweet and savory flavors with a touch of sour in their brown Thai soy sauce. This is a great spot for delicious dishes that won't break your budget.
