The modest strip-mall location doesn't stop foodies who flock here for authentic, spicy Thai fare.- Google
"Best southern Thai food in Los Angeles."
"The steamed green mussels are a delicious choice, as is the crying tiger beef."

This place can get crowded and the service is welcoming. HOWEVER, I couldn't find a dish that wasn't spicy! I came here with my book club, so I didn't know. I'm a crybaby when it comes to spicy food. I ended up getting an eggplant and tofu dish which was not that spicy and was SUPER tasty.

As a half-Thai person who used to live in Thailand (and whose family owned a Thai restaurant), I found this place, which had been recommended to me by friends, extremely overrated and overpriced. It was wasn't the worst Thai food I've ever had, but it was far from the best, and $20-$30 for a curry is outrageous. There are so many wonderful, authentic, and reasonable (even cheap) Thai restaurants in LA that I would not bother battling the crowds to return. Perhaps it was good once and is a victim of its own success, but I assume that at this point it's just running on the fumes of its own hype.

Jitlada came as advertised: strip mall Thai with tasty food. Don't go for the atmosphere. I wanted to double-check the health department rating. However, the menu was extensive and the food was very good. We ordered southern curry chicken and chili beef with basil, peppers and onions. The beef was cubed and tasted more stew-like than deep-fried. We ordered our spice level at 4 & 5 (out of five), and it was explosive. I'd go back, but I'll bet you can find dozens of this quality Thai food in Los Angeles.

Excellent Thai food. When it is busy, things do get backed up so my suggestion is to try to come here early. Things to order: deep fried morning glory salad, any of the curry dishes, the mussels, and the crying tiger pork. There is a lot more on the menu that I have yet to try but it's one of the best restaurants in Thai town.

Late night channel surfing ended up at Food Network special on the Best Thing I Ever Ate - Spicy Food. Crying Tiger Pork was the dish that was featured by Curtis Stone. I had a pleasure to seek after this place in Thai Town, LA. First thing I noticed was the drawings of Simpsons characters autographed by Matt Groening. There are plenty of published articles of this restaurant posted all through the restaurant. I wasn't too fond of the strong smell. I ordered Crying Tiger Pork and my brother ordered Pat See Wee. Pat See Wee was average. Pork was nicely char-grilled and tender. The spicy sauce was sweet, sour, and spicy. It tasted lot like a salsa. I was little disappointed of how Curtis Stone thought this dish was that spicy. Overall I thought the food was average and the price was expensive.

The menu here is probably one of the longest thing I've ever read.. so we just had the waitress recommend us food I think the best dish we got was the fried fish Everything else was just A.OK.. Don't get spicy here if you're not a spice eater... you will regret it lol I had just came back from Thailand so I was comparing the authenticity.. and it is very legit here. Just confusing what to order so I guess I didn't get what I wanted

Three of us. oh yeah, and one dish never even made it to the table.

There is no possible way this place could be anything below 5 stars. Jitlada is the tastiest and most adventurous, unique Thai restaurant in Los Angeles. Jazz, the owner and proprietor, is wonderfully warm and welcoming. Though you have to wait a bit for your food as their kitchen is small, you will not regret going here and will likely go back time and time again.
