Re recently ordered off of Grub Hub app and found this place by searching for places that would deliver in El Cajon. This place was so yummy that we ordered from them the very next night!

Did not live up to your other reviews on your site. It was okay but not great! I much prefer Phara Ram and Jade for flavor , service and atmosphere. Food tasted like fast food as it was lacking in depth and freshness of flavors.

El Cajon isn't exactly a hot bed of asian cooking but lately a few good restaurants have started to show up and Finest Thai is one of them. Run by a Cambodian family, you are usually greeted by the owners friendly (and talkative) daughter. This is a small place, nothing fancy, located in the target store parking lot. The wife... More
