Reviews for Zen Yai Thai Cuisine

Eh, we can do better!The food was nothing to write home about. Both Masaman and Yellow curries were flat. Tased like they needed to be cooked longer. Pretty bland. Meat portions in the dishes were frugal. Beef Masaman curry came out to $20 w/ brown rice, so pricy for a regular Thai dishAtmosphere was just average. Would not come back here. Better Thai places all over

This is my new go-to Thai food restaurant in the SB area!! SO SO SO good; every plate is absolutely delicious. The pad thai was the perfect texture and amount of peanut sauce, the yellow chicken curry (my favorite food) was flavorful and satisfying, the panang curry was hearty and a beautiful creamy orange color, the coconut drink that I ordered with the meal was fresh and delicious, the mango sticky rice was a perfectly sweet finish to the meal... Definitely coming here again...read full review

Got the fried calamari, fried tofu, pad thai, and fried rice. All were pretty good and the fried foods weren't greasy or felt heavy. The service was exemplary -- honestly I'd recommend them just from our experience with the waitress who seemed to be the only one working at the front.
