The modest strip-mall location doesn't stop foodies who flock here for authentic, spicy Thai fare.- Google
"We ordered southern curry chicken and chili beef with basil, peppers and onions."
"Get the Crispy Papaya Salad with Shrimp."

Definitely if it is your first time at Jitlada, you MUST get the crispy morning glory shrimp salad. Even though its light, it's soooo good. The fish sauce is perfect. If it wasn't 15 bucks a dish, I would eat like 10 dishes of this! The beef was whatever. The service is very quick! Maybe because I came on a non-busy day but I got my food in less than 10 minutes. We devoured the food in less than 10 minutes. You're in and out in less than 30. But definitely, one of the best Thai restaurants in LA. I'll be back to Jitlada to try some more, their menu is very extensive so there's a bottomless pit of dishes to try!

The spring rolls were good. I got the celebrity chicken and won tons. The food was all very good. The celebrity chicken is like a non greasy orange chicken. I highly recommend for all you not so adventurous food eaters. The service was a bit of a bummer. Two peoples meals came out first and we waited, and waited, and waited about 15 minutes until their food was cold and then we told them to eat. When they had finished eating, we finally received the the final of our dishes. On top of it, the waitress then happily scurried us out, telling our table there is a wait for our table as we reviewed our check.

My favorite Thai place ever. Try the celebrity chicken. The owner tells great stories about all the stars that come in. They buy their seafood fresh daily. Very unique items on their menu that I couldn't even find in Thailand.

Though they will serve you a very decent food, the list of items in there menu is exhausting. Over 200 items on a menu seems old fashioned these days. And don't even get me started on the ambience of this place. It looks dated and gloomy. I also think the the prices are on the higher side with not much value from the food. Even though the meal portions are adequate, they will not split the soup bowls or server you by a cup. Overall, i am not very satisfied with this place and might not visit them again.

I think the world is starting to realize that what they once considered Thai food was really mostly Southern Thai food. Places like Pok Pok in Portland are more popular, but have done the same thing. Portland was first NYC, sorry. No more are we limited to Pad Thai, Pad See Ew, curries and BBQ skewers. The salad's we've known can more easily be broken down into Yam for mixed, Tam for green papaya, larb for lime fish sauce and greens and phla which is mostly meat (yeah get exited carnivores). They split the menu up by region which helps and they probably sell more North to South. To many with heat sensitivity everything is spicy, but I can assure you the heat levels here, have no limits. The Coco mango which is good is very dessert ish with the coconut and cashews. Kind of a mis between Tam and Yam. I prefer the spicy Squid for the totally unique flavor and texture. Also with the spicy lime dressing (fermented fish is well masked by the lime). Tofu Duck isn't the most appealing looks wise, but Asian Duck to me is delicious. Much less fatty than French or European duck dishes. Oxtail soup is rich, dense, darkly broth'd and slow cooked to fall off the tail-ness. Poh Tak is spicy and tastes like Tom Yum, but assorted seafood. Kaeng Lieng is a heavily laden vegetable soup with different kinds of shrimp. A medly if you will. Blue Crab, really? Most places don't use it due to it being hard to keep, but it's really more of a curry than soup dish. They have homely décor, low ceilings and the service is on par with many ethnic foods in the area. Definitely about the food and maybe a little singing entertainment. Though the service is decent, they tend not to be as attentive to the experience. They are all about the food and often understaffed. Food is amazing and who knew they would be in the middle of a Thai food revolution without even knowing it. We shall see who wins in the battle for America's waistline.

I'm ready for this new location. Same owners from the Jitlada on Hollywood Blvd just moving to this location next to Arby's, corner of Sunset Blvd. and Bronson. There's plenty of parking in the rear (better than the old location). Bigger location with tons more table and 6 wide screen TVs! February 1, 2014 is the Grand Re-Opening and move. Stay tuned!

Very delicious Thai food! The crying tiger (both pork and beef), steamed mussels, and crispy morning glory salad are musts. Can be quite pricey for Thai food, however.
