Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 March 2016 via mobile

Lime leaf Thai is a lovely small restaurant in Castro Valley Village mall. It is open and light and has outdoor seating - which is lovely on sunny days and warm summer evenings.

It is a casual laid back restaurant (not fancy) where the waitresses always have a smile for you. We are regulars and they always remember our preferences - chopsticks, brown rice, etc...Sometimes at lunch there is only one waitress so she is very busy but somehow she manages to do everything without losing her smile.

The food is good, reasonable portions for a Thai restaurant, and fresh ingredients. A solid place to go with friends for a casual meal.

Lime Leaf is a wonderful casual Thai restaurant. The flavors are amazing, the staff is very friendly and take good care of you and they will work with you on customizing your dish (I often go in there when I need something super spicy...while that's not the normal spice level they will definitely amp things up for me).

I really enjoy their curry dishes and the Pad Thai, typically they are appropriately spiced to have delicious flavor without being very spicy (but again - you want it spicy just let them know) and their spring rolls are delicious as well.

We have enjoyed better Thai food at other places in Castro Valley. The Tom Kha soup was too sweet for my taste, no lemongrass but a lot of coconut milk. Other dishes had a lot of red onions in them. One of our party ordered a simple salad and didn't finish it. Nothing specific - just not that great.

I really enjoy Lime Leaf for when my non-Thai eating hubby is out of town and I want just to sit quietly and dine on fresh flavors in a small home town restaurant. It sits right on the parking lot, but so do the other restaurants in our little Castro Valley Village Shopping Center. The staff is very friendly and attentive.
