Weird name for a resturant but good food. Be careful if you order spicy, it's spicy! Plenty of parking and not too crowded.

From Business: The first restaurant was opened in 1983 in San Diego by Ralph Rubio and his father, Ray, who started the fish taco phenomenon that spread across the nation. Today…
One of the best in stockton.
Let's begin by saying, we waited 10 whole minutes to be seated & there was hardly anybody in the restaurant too (I'll say 6 people total but in two separate group - the 1st table had 4 people and the 2nd table had 2 people). After, we got seated, our server gave us our menu & took an additional 10 minutes to come back and ask us for our orders... Then, we waited another 20 minutes for our food...Our waiter was very rude and impolite. She was always in a rushed toward us... And, as I watched her in action, I can see that she was more catering to the "white folks" than us (Asian people). She would refill their glasses up with water instantly & ask them how they were doing & if they needed anything else. While at our table, she would just look over her shoulder (knowing our glasses were empty) & skip us... We had to ask for our own water refills --- our own doggy bags- our own spoons -- our own sauces --- our own everything) ... I don't mind asking for my own things but how come the other guests didn't even have to ask or lift a finger. (Oh yeah & while we were eating... a new guest walked into the restaurant & his wait time was less than 1 minute (he got seated real quick) & (he was white, of course). Now let's review the food... The Thai food didn't taste "authentic" at all. It was plain and tasteless. It didn't had any flavors whatsoever. The "yellow curry" soup was missing bamboo shoots and green beans. The "papaya salad" tasted too plain & fake. It also should not have any carrots in there. The "laap beef" was just plain gross... The flavors tasted like raw meat mixture. I'll say the only thing great about this restaurant is the decorations and designs. In all, the food is crappy and unauthentic. And, the waiter is not nice towards us. Now I know why this restaurant is so empty lol... Oh yeah, & tell me why this restaurant has been in Stockton for 8 years -- but only have 9 reviews lol... Yup because it SUCKS. Bad Service and to top it off crappy food.
I'm new to Stockton (two weeks). I've worked in a couple of countries in Far East starting back in 1986. Food was good, prices reasonable for level of Restr. Exterior does not lend itself to actual level of quality received inside. Reminded me of some small restaurants I've eaten at in Hong Kong. Outside looks forlorn but service and food inside can't be beat.. Best comment I can make is that I will be eating here again.
Good , fresh ,good service ,But I've had better
