There are so many different Thai restaurants in Thai Town area near Hollywood. It is difficult to distinguish one to another and we usually keep coming back to the same place again to avoid confusion. I read from Trip Advisor so many recommendation on the Roasted Pork over Chinese broccoli, I'd got to try that one. Roasted or deep fried... More

Good authentic Thai food. Very plain atmosphere. Not a place to take a date or a client. This is where you get crispy fried pork belly and garlicky green papaya salad with broccoli.

This place is ok, not particular good, not particularly bad and way behind many other Thai restaurants in California. This is more of a cafe. Less care taken over preparation than in a restaurant.

I liked the food, also the venue is clean, the neighborhood looks little rough. Also the waiter was cute and nice so one extra star for that!

I have been coming here every week for about three months now and I am always highly-satisfied with each visit! For comparison, I have visited Thailand about 5 times and stay away from the tourist areas to find the most "local" Thai dishes. At this restaurant, "Yai" does Lard Na better than any restaurant in Thailand. Order the Pad Thai... More

Allow me to start with a couple of disclaimers; it was my 4th day into a cold, and I have been taken medicine with Zinc, so my taste buds are a little off and Yai used to be one of my favorite Thai restaurant in Thai Town and I introduced this place to so many as if I own share... More

Based on the reviews I decided to visit this place due to the good prices. I was well surprised at the menu prices and the amount of food that you do received for the money. Not a fancy place but worth the visit especially if you are on a budget.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
