                                  I love La Thai in National City because the food is so good every time. I love the flavors, the food comes hot, and they have a good variety of my favorite Thai dishes.

                                  One of my favorite Thai restaurants of all time! I’ve been to quite a few Thai restaurants over the years and Lai Thai is something special. I could be biased, but their pad Thai noodles are the absolute best!
