Our Story

Cousins Tricia Hamachai (an award-winning architectural designer) and Jay Onyeneke (a professional chef and Thai native) opened Thai Talay Restaurant in 2003. Starting a restaurant was a natural extension of their collective passions: Thai food and culture, entrepreneurism, design, progressive cooking and local business.

Super-fresh ingredients, dynamic flavors and a distinctly California-Thai gourmet aesthetic are what define the fare at Thai Talay. We serve our food family-style, in the Thai tradition, enabling you to enjoy a diversity of menu items. 

Thai Talay is truly a labor of love and we are very proud to be a part of the local dining landscape in such a beautiful part of the world.
