Though it does serve meat, Your Place is quite vegan-friendly and the food is consistently delicious, extraordinarily good Thai cuisine (often voted best in Santa Barbara).
The ambience is casual (though a bit busy at peak hours) and the service is friendly if not always prompt. Quality is similar to Your Place on Milpas and Galanga on lower State Street, but for our tastes Your Place is one step above the rest. They're really masters of flavor and texture.
Our eternal favorites include:
- Eggplant Tofu Curry
- Garlic Pepper Tofu and Broccoli
- Pra Luck Spinach (excellent peanut sauce)
- Spicy Mint Noodles
- Rahd Na with tofu
- Pahd See-Yew with tofu (ask for no eggs)
Though perhaps less exciting, their Pad Thai is one of the best you'll find anywhere.
Be sure to specify "no fish sauce," just to be safe. :-)
Cons: Serves meat, Not organic, Service can be slow at peak hours
