food is underflavored and rates spicing in a different way than other thai restaurants. the som tom - papaya salad lacked dried shrimp, had too little palm sugar, not enough fish sauce, too few peanuts. other dishes were as disappointing. it's very expensive for that quality food. this restaurant has been so americanized it should be called american thai food.

The setting and ambiance of the restaurant was very nice, the service however was very slow although the staff and waiters were nice there was not enough help to service all the tables so you were waiting a very long time for your waiter to come with the bill and or ask a question, very poor service, also I was charged a gratuity on my bill and the instructions did not say this I would have tip anyway but I hate when it is already taken out especially with this poor service. We will not visit this restaurant again!

Waiter/bartender needs to improve speed of service. Update customers to ensure good service and when food is taking longer than usual. We waited 25+ mins for the food,15-20 mins for the dessert then another 10 mins for the check. Really?

The food was excellent! My husband and I were visiting San Diego and saw the groupon and decided to try it out for our anniversary dinner. We loved everything about this restaurant! The service was excellent, food delicious, and ambiance romantic. Would highly recommend the Crispy Mahi Mahi--best thing we have eaten in a while!

From Our Editors

At Rama, the scents of ginger, curry, and lemongrass waft from the kitchen. They meander into a sprawling dining space, where warm amber lighting glints off glasses filled with heady cocktails and fine wines. A DJ spins records as diners anticipate a taste of the critically-acclaimed dishes; the restaurant's recipes have earned accolades from Zagat, among others. Noodle dishes, such as pad see ew with egg and chinese broccoli, headline the menu along with complex panang curries, whose nuanced spices flavor tofu and vegetables or meats like roasted duck. Specialties include spicy basil lobster and Shaking Beef, whose cubed rib eye, cherry tomatoes, shallots, and onions are sautéed deep within a fault line.

Servers distribute these dishes in an "architecturally stylish" dining room, as described by Gayot. Inlaid stone and a wall-mounted waterfall give the space an earthy vibe that's complemented by gauzy curtains and hand-painted murals.
