This restaurant is hidden gem. I've been to Thailand many times and the food here is pretty authentic & surprisingly very good. Pad thai and Panang curry are the bomb. Price is so cheap :) most of them are under $10 They don't serve alcohol :( Parking can be challenging since it's located on Hollywood Blvd.

I used to go here kind of frequently, in the late 80s and early 90s, been a few times since. It had been quite a while and I went back for dinner today. The parking situation is horrible, but there is a bus stop a few feet from the front door. They open at 5:00, so no lunch, but they... More

Good portions at low prices. Decor is dated and the food presentation lacks a bit of finesse, but you won't leave hungry. Contrary to an earlier review this is NOT a BYOB. They do not serve any alcohol and you may not consume your own, which is a pity because Thai food and cold Singha beer are a marriage made... More

Non pretentious good casual come as you are restaurant. They have very good food that won't put a dent on your wallet. The service is friendly and attentive. The Tom Kha Kai is the soup I usually have. You should have it. A sure bet when you're in the Hollywood area.

I've eaten here many times and the food is very tasty. Lots of choices and the prices are quite low. Cash only. Four people, five dishes and two Thai ice teas...total bill before tip $45. Who could complain about that? Area is a little seedy, but it is ok. Parking meters on street. Most are one hour meters before 8pm.... More

... My goto motel when visiting LA is a few blocks away but part of the reasoning is the package it makes with being always able to get a tastey late night dinner here. Service is quick and efficient and the food is good and fairly priced.

The food is good. The prices are low. The servers are friendly. That said, it's not THAT great, but we go EVERY time we are in Hollywood! I love the fried wontons and Thai tea. And we ALWAYS order WAY too much food!

This place is great for late night thai. Can get a little sketchy sometimes. Friend of mine was there for dinner when the place was holdup. Overall although worth it for the amazing spicy quid with mint. Gotta try it. Pad thai is great to. Great value for your buck. BYOB and bring cash.

This people overcharge customers. I've gone 5 times and every time I've gone I always have to check my bill for correct accuracy since they don't know how to add. And all they say is "oh I'm sorry" how can you make the same mistake 5 times. They know what they are doing, they need to be investigated because who... More

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.
