What people are saying about The Besta-Wan!


“I’ve been coming here for years. When I moved away last year I made a point to come back regularly because I love it so much. The menu is a broad selection of salads, sandwiches, pizza and pasta. Also, they have a great variety of appetizers. The pizza made me fall in love 0 thin crispy crust, good sauce and generous toppings. I’ve had every salad on the menu and love them all … too hard to pick a favorite. Decor is casual and eclectic consistent with the vibe of place, staff and clientele. If that’s your thing too then you’ll fit right in.”

“For a slightly hidden restaurant, this is definitely a local favorite. The employees have always been nice, the pizza is great, and it has a nice family feel to it. If your looking for a good place to have a good pizza with the family, the prictetag is not bad and the experience is great.”

“OMGoodness, A-Mazing! How did I not know about this place. I had the 3 cheese…there are NO words for how amazing it was. This is my new favorite place. And puppies are welcome. They have a doggie door that leads to their patio. I love the atmosphere, the food, the staff…I cannot wait to be hungry again so I can go back there and eat. I’m telling everybody I know.”

“We moved to Cardiff in April and we eat at Besta Wan weekly! Their meatlovers pizza and peanut butter wings are our usual. The staff is always super friendly and laid back, which is the main reason we love it there so much! You can also bring your dogs which is awesome on a sunny day. Love this place! Our favorite :)”

“Tried Peanut Butter Wings tonight on the recommendation of our server Canon…no regrets! Asked for jelly to make them PBnJ wings (’cause ranch dressing just work), and he was very accommodating. Taking leftovers home and creating imaginative dips & sauces for serving suggestions…stay tuned!”

“Great fun, day! Food delish, service fantastic, and the decor is uniquely special. I am so glad they choose Oceanside/Carlsbad area to open their second restaurant….it is closer than the Cardiff by the Sea one. I just love the fact that a young owner is “hands on” and did the decorating and over sees the business…5 stars on all levels…don’t expect the ordinary…this place is SPECIAL!”
