Thai Specialty 2 Restaurant Review:
We’ve lived in Tustin for over a month now, but we’ve really only ventured to a few restaurants so far. It’s been busy! One restaurant we checked out last night was Thai Specialty 2. Let’s start with the fact that the inside of this place needs a definite remodel. Also, this is a family establishment- so there were tons of kids running around, and it was a Friday night. But I wasn’t expecting to eat at The Ritz- and we were really happy to have a night out cost less than $50. The dinner entrees at Thai Specialty 2 are around $8.99 on average, and the portion sizes are great. We had a lot of food leftover too! The food was also extremely delicious. I’m not a Thai food aficionado by any means, but my husband certainly is- and he couldn’t stop eating their food.
We order the Larb for an appetizer, which came out steaming hot and was seasoned well and delicious. It was a little too spicy for me to eat a lot of, but I did enjoy a few bites. For my entree I ordered Tom Yum Noodle Soup. The bowl of soup was huge! I also made sure to ask the waiter to make it “on the mild side”, because I’ve had painful spicy Thai experiences in the past, and I don’t want to go through that again. The soup was perfect. It had the perfect amount of lime in it, and was so flavorful. MMM MMMM.
My husband ordered the Chicken Panang Curry, which was also way too spicy for me to eat- but don’t let that concern you, I’m just not a Thai aficionado, like I said before. But he seemed to be eating it and enjoying it, so that’s usually a good sign.
While the decor and ambiance of Thai Specialty 2 definitely leaves a lot to be desired, the prices are cheap for Orange County, and the food was very high quality. I’d definitely recommend it as a take out place if you are looking for excellent Thai in Tustin.
