Manee House was open for a couple of years in an awkward strip mall, and then closed for a couple years, and then re-opened in yet another awkward strip mall (we have a lot of those). But from then to now, it is one of the best Thai restaurants I’ve had the pleasure of going to.

In the Santa Clarita Valley, it is common to qualify judgements: “It’s a pretty good italian joint, for the SCV..” Manee House needs no such qualification. It’s just a great restaurant. You can probably tell I’m a fan.

The SCV has a bevy of cheap and less authentic Thai restaurants- those, combined with the awkward strip mall location, may be why Manee House has been struggling to get a consistent clientele. It’s certainly not because of the food.

A normal trip to Manee house for me begins with inviting everyone I can possibly think of. There are so many great dishes on the menu that I would feel silly ordering all of them for myself.

The dining area is pleasant, clean and modest, and the staff is usually quite good at what they do. But don’t expect it to be perfect. Like many of the restaurants I’ve been to in Thailand, they worried about the important things: Food, service, cleanliness- and might have forgotten to properly install ALL of the ceiling tiles over the bar area.

Nua Nom Tok

I’m not sure if this is even on the new menu, but they always make it when I ask for it. It’s amazing. A lot like larb, but kicked up a notch. The ground rice, lime and the spiciness affect your mouth in such a way that really brings out flavors in other dishes you have with it. I believe this one is technically a salad, so don’t be surprised if it comes first.

Nam Kao Tod

This is another ‘salad’ dish, meaning it’s served adjacent to lettuce leaves. But the gist of it is peanuts and ground chicken with little crispy fried bits of rice, onions, and the usual array of clean fresh Thai spices. You will find yourself fighting with your friends for those delightfully crunchy rice bits.

Panang Beef

It’s a standard Panang, but done extremely well. The beef is always tender, the seasoning just right… Manee House doesn’t cop out like most restaurants by just making the panang sweeter to enhance its flavor.

Pad See You

For those of you that have to choose between going to a Thai restaurant and getting Chinese food, Pad See You is here to help. The heavy soy sauce flavor and the broccoli say Chinese, but the flat noodles speak nothing but Thai.

great Thai food

Great service! This place has a personal touch. We went for Mother's Day, and we were able to sit right away and be served quickly. They really care about the quality of the food.

Manee House

I love this place! The food is delicious and the staff are very helpful and happy to be there. The prices are fair for what you get, and what you get is expected -- but great, nonetheless!
