“Beautiful Presentation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

This place is close to the museums, so I've eaten here a number of times. The food is tasty, the kitchen and bathroom are clean, the decor is spare and simple. Noodles soups are flavorful and are a generous portion for the cost. Entrees and soups are $7-11. My favorite dishes are the Vietnamese spring rolls with tofu - like a salad rolled up in a large rice noodle - and the yellow curry. The curry has a bit of a bite, but I would say it is mild. It's almost like a soup, but not as generous of a portion as the noodle soups. The service is pleasant but unusually slow, even when there are few patrons in the restaurant.

“Decent Food - that's all”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

Went to this restaurant on a couple occasions. Once for lunch and again for dinner. Lunch was not so good or it is what I'd ordered. Dinner was decent - like any other Thai restaurant.

I was promptly seated. It seems that at this restaurant you do not get served water unless you order your meal. On both occasions, the waitress served water only after I ordered my meal. Dinner had generous portions of fried rice - good for two. Eggrolls were pretty good as well.

There isn't much room in the restaurant, but owners have managed to create enough ambiance and cozy feel - except that the tables are too close to each other to have any personal conversation.

I'd definitely go to this place again.

“Decent Thai Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2013

This is a good small Thai restaurant located in a strip mall at Wilshire Bl. and Crescent Heights in the Mid-Wilshire area. Very good Thai bar-b-que chicken and pad thai noodles. Reasonably priced with free parking in the lot in front of the restaurant.
