Not many Thai restaurants do Happy Hour, but La Jolla’s Chedi Thai Bistro does—and does it right. Each night from 5 – 7pm, the Chedi Thai Bistro Happy Hour serves select menu favorites, $5 wine and $3 beer and mixed drinks for an affordable and flavorful experience you won’t forget.
At Chedi Thai Bistro, the nightly Happy Hour is designed to please the customer. With $3 beer, $5 wine and $4 appetizers, you won’t easily find another offer that balances price and quality so well. The appetizers are both sizeable and well-balanced with lots of vegetables and several high-protein options. Many customers use the Chedi Thai Bistro Happy Hour as an opportunity for a discounted dinner, as you can combine multiple small plates to make for a perfect-sized meal.
A Happy Hour Shaped by the Customer
The Happy Hour appetizer selection is taken from the regular lunch and dinner menus and is highly influenced by customer feedback. “If people like it, we add it,” explains co-owner Tom, pointing out the popular Tofu Summer Rolls that made the jump from dinner to Happy Hour. Customers will be gratified to see the beloved Green Papaya Salad (pictured below), Thai Crispy Calamari, and Vegetable Dumplings (pictured above) on the list as well.
A Diverse Selection
Like lunch and dinner, the Happy Hour menu offers lots of options for vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free diets. The beer and wine lists are encouraging, featuring both domestic and international brews and wines from Napa to Argentina. Unlisted specialty mixed drinks are also featured.

If you are someone who doesn’t like their Thai food too spicy, you’re in luck! The dishes at Chedi Thai Bistro are marked on the menu with three stars, ranging from mild to spicy. The level of spice is a recommendation from the chef as the best way to bring out the flavor in that particular dish, however the food does not have to be spicy to be good. In fact, some of the best dishes are just the opposite.
More at Chedi Thai Bistro
Chedi Thai Bistro is also open for a Prix Fixe lunch weekdays from 11 am – 3 pm, and dinner from 5 pm – 10 pm on weekdays or noon – 10 pm on weekends. The Prix Fixe lunch deal offers a choice of two appetizers and a main course for $10, a stunningly good deal for the quality and quantity of food.
