Third visit in 4 months and it did not disappoint. Getting a table at lunchtime much easier but lining up for a table during the week is okay. Took about 15 minutes to get a table and the food and beverages make it worthwhile. Thai ice tea and ice green tea definitely worth trying. Lunch menu very reasonable and 3... More

The menu selections are extensive, with some "fusion" dishes of interest besides all the standard Thai offerings, and the food did taste delicious. The service was poor; like so many SoCal restaurants, they have an outside seating area, but when you are the only person out there, they seem to forget you, and come out way too infrequently. The thing... More

This place was recommended by the hotel we were staying at. We were told about their years in business and great food. The portions are large and a really good value for the food. I won't be back based on business practices. They added an auto gratuity on a party of 5 and didn't tell me when they gave the... More

Beautiful, fresh food with some innovative dishes. Thai tea (with or without milk) and Galanga fried rice a must. Very popular at night (we had to wait for a table). Lunch time is nice as you can sit out the back (outside). Service is excellent.

We visited while on vacation in early June. The weather was cool for Californians but we're Wyoming tough so we requested the patio and had it all to ourselves! Nice atmosphere and delicious food-all very affordable-we were surprised at that! The service was friendly too. The only negative is, we spent the rest of our vacation comparing other restaurants to... More

I have been visiting this restaurant on Santa Monica Blvd for at least 10 years. A fun and a must stop for me and family. BYOB wine and relax inside or outside on patio. Very nice and attentive people work here. Lunch prices are inexpensive and the dishes are tasty. The Duck was excellent for lunch and the curry chicken... More

This is my joint. It's great Thai food in an area filled with Thai offerings. Everything is good. I particularly enjoy the curry dishes, the pad Thai, the lettuce wraps and the tom kha. But the dish that keeps me Coming back, and it's hardly a Thai dish is there fusion pho. It's like a beef soup crossed with pho... More

This is a small family friendly Thai restaurant serving all the normal staples. We had a couple of curries, with the pad thai and, sorry, egg rolls. Surprisingly the egg rolls were very good!

Have eaten here several times at lunch with my colleagues and had a good experience each time. Just about everything on the menu is pretty terrific but I really recommend their noodle dishes and curries as well as their super sized Thai Iced Tea. Prices vs Portions are a good value for the location. great lunch specials --> smaller portion... More

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
