This restaurant never disappoints. The food is fantastic, the drinks are exotic and delicious, and the staff is wonderfully attentive. It's our favorite, go-to place in Santa Rosa!

made a reservation for 4:45. when we arrived there were only 2 tables filled. I requested a table under a heater, which there were several open. The Hostess said “this is your table, pointing to the only table not under or partially under a heater. The heaters work great you will be warm.
Well she left never came back and we were not warm!
I had to have my husband go to car and get a blanket. even so my hands were cold! By the time we realized the heater would not reach us all tables were full.
The hostess had an attitude. Take it or leave it. this is your table.
we ate fast and left. Not a good experience.

I love SEA Thai, it is my go-to restaurant for Thai cuisine. The food is always perfectly prepared and generous portions (I often take the curries home for meals the next day).
With Covid restrictions, the outside dining is very comfortable, tables are properly spaced both good for private conversation as well as health protocols.

Went here for outdoor dining for Valentine’s Day during pandemic. Server was extremely nice and helpful. Heaters were on because it was a rainy day and it felt like we were inside. Drinks were good and a decent craft beer selection. Food was fantastic! Starters parade was a great appetizer, very much loved the Thai bruschetta. Gf got the lobster pad Thai, I got a seafood plate of crab meat, scallops, shrimp, with jalapeño and onions. Both of us would order again. Wonderful meal!

This is one of my favorite restaurants! Definitely the best Thai around. Food is amazing. And, Staff is very accommodating. I especially like the pumpkin red curry but I’ve never had anything I didn’t like there. When we get past COVID-19, you will love the interior.

The food was amazing. We really loved everything that we ordered. The server was given too many tables to manage, and that made service slow. It also made the experience a little lacking. We did not want to continue to order because the server was so busy

Whenever I have a craving for thai food, my first thought is SEA Thai. The food is consistently delicious, made with fresh ingredients. In fact, I love their food so much I always order a take out of their pumpkin curry and brown rice so I can have several meals, after I've had either lunch or dinner.

The food is always tasty. In my opinion it’s a bit overpriced for Asian food. Due to COVID-19 we are sitting outside and the area that we were sitting in there were lots of flies in and around the tables. Maybe the restaurant should consider putting out some fly traps or fans to keep the flies away.

Excellent as usual. It's been awhile since I've been able to visit SEA Thai Bistro due to the pandemic, but they made it comfortable, we were safely distanced from other diners and the staff visited minimally and always wearing a mask.
Aside from that, the food was EXCELLENT! Love those Thai Bruschettas - yum! Tried something new this time, the Massaman Curry, recommended by our server. It was excellent and plentiful.
Always enjoy the food here.
