You walk in to Chedi Thai and you’re already pretty jazzed. After all, chances are you’ve probably snagged a parking spot nearby; something that can be quite tricky in La Jolla. Believe it or not, this is something the owners of this quaint eatery considered when selecting the spot. That focus on the customer extends beyond the availability of vehicle bays, and no matter what you order once you’re at the restaurant, your parking-induced happiness is bound to be built upon thanks to a staff that, from hostess to back-of-house, is all about making sure patrons are comfortable and sated.

“We have a modern look, but not too modern,” said Tom Techathamnukool who, along with wife Pia Kampuntip, has owned the restaurant at 737 Pearl St., Suite 110 for 10 months. “The moment you walk in you can see this is a Thai restaurant.”
