AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Owner Su-Mei Yu grew up in Bangkok and missed the grilled chicken she used to buy at ramshackle huts by the Thai city’s boxing arena. Now Su and a slew of cooks serve up fragrant marinated chicken with peanut sauce and jasmine rice from Saffron Thai's tidy storefront. She’s added a noodle and sate shop next door and expanded the menu so even regulars can find new favorites at one of the best places to eat in San Diego. Yu has become a celebrity, with two Thai cookbooks and many TV appearances, but she still spends most of her time at her tiny cafes.

  Not much to look at but the chicken is terrific - tender, moist & wonderfully flavorful. Always one of our first stops when we go back to SD.
