    Hands down, the best Thai restaurant I've ever had the pleasure of visiting. The Pra Ram is my wife's fav, I truly love many of their dishes but the BBQ chicken is always perfect and super good. Affordable, perfection in preparation, and a terrific staff that remember us every time we go. With their convenient location, they sure make it easy for us to visit at least once a week.

    My go-to or return to place in downtown Santa Cruz. The food is great, eat in or take out. They have the best Bubble Tea in Santa Cruz.

History

Established in 2004.

Halloween 2005 marked the close of Ambrosia Bubbleteas and Crepes and the birth of Pacific Thai Santa Cruz. By Thanksgiving, 1319 Pacific Avenue emerged in its new configuration. The new business was a mix of the King and I Thai cuisine and the hospitality and bubble teas of Ambrosia. Enjoy!
