I am really surprised at all the bad reviews. My husband, myself, my mom and my dad all had dinner at Thai Talay and we all thought the food was incredible. The Tom Kah soup was amazing! The best I've ever had. We ordered the coconut lemongrass rice, chicken satay, Shrimp Pad Thai and the Pumpkin Curry. The coconut rice was to die for!! It was great with the pumpkin curry cause the sweetness helped with the perfect spice of the curry. My mom and I wish we would have ordered some curry and rice to go cause now we are stuck back at home craving it!! I can see where the bad service would definately ruin your meal. Our service wasn't the best either but really, you should give this place a chance......the food was yummy!!
Went there on New Years Day for a late lunch with a party of 7 and were seated right away since the place was still empty. Two other groups, a party of 4 and a party of 5 came in after us and were seated right after, their drink orders were both taken before ours and then thier appetizers began coming out. It's a small place, so how could they forget about us? We sat for about 25 minutes, no water, nothing!! Just a poorly managed restaurant and am glad we stopped the bleeding and left before the afternoon was ruined.
After hearing from several people that this had better Thai food than my fave Thai restaurant in Arroyo Grande, I decided to have lunch there mid-week with a friend. Uncrowded, with only a couple of other parties there, we were brought salads before we had placed our order.
The salad had a honey mustard poppy seed dressing and was apparently all they had to offer for lunch. It was uninteresting but adequate as a salad.
After wondering for a long while if the waitress had forgotten she never took our order, she finally reappeared and we placed our orders. Mine, the Phad Macua, an eggplant dish with beef as my meat choice and my friend had the Spicy Garlic with chicken.
My first bite had me thinking the flavor to be interesting, but then it began to hit me that it was extremely salty and over seasoned. So much so, that I had a hard time finishing the meal. My companion noticed the same with his dish, loads of salt and the spiciness seemed to be nothing more than black pepper. He also complained that it didn't have any vegetables with it other than some onion.
We both agreed that the food was horrible and we would never return no matter how much anyone else tried to persuade us.
I have eaten here about six times in the last year.
The first four times were great. The last two times were very disapointing. Chicken satay was the only part of the meal that was even worth eating. The server did not know what Larb was. Food was bland and portion size was poor. I hope they go back to there old ways - it is ashame to loose a formerly great place,
I went to this place based on other reviews, especially one that mentioned it had good vegetarian choices. This place exceeded my expectations. The food was better than most Thai places I've been to.... and we LOVE Thai, so that is saying a lot. My only disappointment was that they did not make it as hot (spicy) as I wished, but I always ask for my food to be screaming hot. They did provide me with fresh chillis.
I can't wait to visit Pismo Beach again and eat at Thai Talay!!!
Great Thai food. Great service. Lots of veggie options (like mock duck!)
We had lunch here not knowing what to expect. Turned out to be one of the best vegetarian menus we could find (important to our family). Very tasty food and good quantity in every dish. We would have enjoyed it a lot more if the service had been more attentive and not left us waiting some times. Overall a great place to have a lunch or dinner.
