My guy took me here for a romantic Thai-infusion dinner this past New Year's Eve. The atmosphere was amazing- ambience, cascading waterfalls, eating dens separated by silky, romantic curtained dividers, mouth-watering dinner by candlelight, quick, cordial and attentive staff... couldn't ask for a more perfect dining experience!
Terrible food..terrible service.. don't waste your money here.
We had dinner deservations for 7.30 and we got there on time. Ordered two appetizers ( triangles with crab meat) & chicken satay. Triangles came after 30 minutes and was lcold. Taste was just passable. After another agonizing wait for the satay, when we asked the waiter to check on it, he rolled his eyes and walked to the kitchen in an apparent display of boredom. Finally the satay came and it was nothing to rave about. Then the wait for the entrees followed. The garlic and pepper chicken was oily and clearly had an overdose of salt. We called the waiter, told him it was really salty and he picked it up and walked back into the kitchen without a word. We cancelled that order but later he brought back another plate and asked us to try it. We politely refused. The other entree (musamman curry) was decent. They did not include the salty entree in our tab. We just packed the musamman curry, paid and left. Not a soul near the entrance, no manager, no waiter.. Do not waste your time and money on this excuse of a restaurant.
And oh, btw, if u don't find street parking ( which is pretty limited around the location), it's $10 to park in the lot opposite the place.
50% of the food was good. 100% of the service was horrible, and the owner himself is very, very shady. The wait was agonizing, even with reservations...and the owner walked around doing what I had thought would be damage control. Rather, it turned out to be further damage. If we had a fantastic meal, we still wouldnt be going back.
The Absolute Best Thai in all of San Diego!! The service is of the highest quality and if you are looking for a romantic destination with an intimate atmosphere for that special someone... this is definately your place. I try a different dish each time I've visited and have never been dissapointed but only intrigued to continue my journey throught the most amazing combination of flavors any ethnic food group has ever delivered.
My wife and I travel all over the world and when we asked for Thai food we were recommended Rama. We got seated in a great booth in the dining room with a view of their full wall waterfall. Our server Jonas was amazing, he helped us through the menu and recommended his personal favorite dishes which were all spot on. Their exceptional wine list complimented our food excellently and we can't look forward to coming back to San Diego to eat there.
I loved it it was awsome my 10 yr old loved it. The drunken noddles and the spicy rice were the best entrees and the summer rolls were the best appitizers. And for dessert you have to try the sticky rice. Its a patty of sticky rice with a coconut syrup on top and ganished with mango. Even the sevice was great!
I had the displeasure of meeting the owner of Rama, Alex Thao personally last Friday night, and I can only say he his smarmy. We had reservations for 9pm, and after 45 minutes and many questions about when we would be seated (and no offer for a cocktail on the house while we waited) Alex informed us we would not be seated at his restaurant. He took offense when I told him that part of running a restaurant is keeping the reservation, or at the bare minimum keeping the waiting guests happy. The entire bar was filled with guests who were more than a 1/2 hour past their reservation time. It is obvious that Alex packs his reservation list, so he can get more people into his restaurant, and as they wait, they spend even more at the bar. Pure shyster. Any good restaurateur would have gone out of his/her way to accommodate the guests, even for a 5 minute wait. I can not urge you enough to stay far from this place.
