Thai in San Mateo?

Mark P | Apr 18, 2009 06:27 PM

I live in San Mateo and am looking for good Thai food. Since I live near downtown, I've been to Thai Satay and Bow Thai. I gave them each three tries about a year or two ago and decided neither are worth eating at (though the former is definitely better than the latter).

Reviews from three years ago endorsed Nipa-Pon. However, I looked in it on a recent evening at 7:30pm and, although it was open, there wasn't a soul inside (nor, say, a pile of take-out boxes waiting to be picked up). That makes me highly skeptical. Anyone have a recent experience?

Other similarly old reviews, endorsed Chao Praya. Anyone have an opinion on this place too?

Are there other Thai places I should be considering?

thanks,
mark
