I REALLY wanted to love this place... I drove down from the Bay Area and showed up at the restaurant at 1:45 AM to place a take out order. I believe the lady who assisted me was the owner. She was very accommodating. After placing my order, she told me that my order will be ready in about 10 minutes so I told her I was going to wait in my car. After waiting in my car for a little while, I decided to head back into the restaurant to check on the status of my order, but the owner was already walking out towards my car with my order. Talk about great service! That's one of the major reason why I wanted to like their food so badly. I hate giving a semi-average review for a place that goes out of their way to take care of their customers. I ordered the crab papaya salad medium spicy. The spice level was perfect; however, the flavor was a little off. It was bland, yet sweet at the same time. Crab papaya salad is one of those dishes that have a lot of different flavors where you can actually taste the lime juice, fish sauce, and shrimp paste, but none of those flavors seemed present in the dish. Maybe it was just an off night because I showed up so late. The beef salad (yum nuer) was dry, but had more flavor than the papaya salad for sure. Still was not as flavorful as I was expecting since this is one of those dishes that usually help me determine whether a Thai restaurant is authentic or not. The saigrok Esan (Esan sausage) was standard level. In all honesty, I believe that this is the same packaged sausage that is sold throughout most Thai markets so I can't really judge the flavor based on something that is not actually made in house, unless I am wrong.

Great Authentic Thai food that at an affordable price. The soups, noodles, salads and meat dishes are all worth trying. I go at least twice per month. Try the Papaya Salad, Morning glory, Yen Ta Fo. BBQ Pork They serve your food so fast its like you called it in ahead of time! They do NOT take Credit Cards so bring cash and bring your appetite The portions are pretty large and they make it semi spicy. Overall great food! You and a friend can eat very well for under 25. If you love to eat 35.00 ENJOY!

Are u serious? ! I don't know where to begin... the curry chicken was watered-down, not to mention old (you can tell when the curry doesn't "pool" together)... the tum yum soup tasted like lemon juice, and the beef salad was not seasoned well. The pad Thai was actually pretty decent. However to me, the noodles were too soggy. Just my preference, but I like the noodles with more of a bite ("aldente", as the Italians would say). Oh, and if you like 'Pho' (beef noodle soup), dont get it here, find a decent Vietnamese restaurant. Highly disappointed if this is what "Thai Town" of Los Angeles has to offer. I feel awful for subjecting my wife's family to this food. On the plus side, the staff was friendly and the water was downright excellent...

On a friend's recommendation, I decided on making the venture out from Santa Monica to try out this place. I couldn't have been more pleased. This place is a true mom-and-pop shop, so don't look like a fool and come in all dressed up for a night out. Extremely casual atmosphere and no corkage fee! I went with my usual favorites: Kao Pad Boo (Crab Fried Rice), Rad Na Gai (Wide rice noodle in gravy sauce with Chicken), PuhkBoong/Ong Choy, Pad Kee Mao (Basil and Chili with Beef). Every dish was excellent and I was so impressed that the food came out in a matter of 10 minutes or so. As a fellow Thai, this is as authentic as it can get. I envy everyone that lives within the vicinity. The parking lot is shared by several other businesses in the Thai Town Plaza so they use a valet system. If you're a cheap-o then plan accordingly time-wise and try to find parking in the area.

Great place! Have been going there for years. Way better than most Thai restaurants around LA. Definitely recommend the Papaya Salad, Green Curry, or the Shrimp Pad Thai.
