I don't get up to L.A. very often, but if I happen to be in the general vicinity of this place, I find a way to go. It's not in the best part of town and the parking is generally horrible, but it's worth it every time. We both got the House Special Kai Yang (B.B.Q. Chicken) Dinner which is... More

I have come here before in the past, and I came here once more in November. The atmosphere is warm, a sense of kind solitude. The comfortable seating accommodates many number of groups. It is a wonderful place for amazing food and comfort. To be honest, I had never tried ribs, ever, in my life, until this month when I... More

I got the Spicy Beef Salad on mild. It was so delicious with the fresh cucumber, mint and beef, mmmmm! My pallet is not advanced enough to tell you about the great dressing that joined this dish, but no worries, you just gotta come and find out.

Been going here for nearly 20 years and more. Been going here since I was a kid. Their Thai Ice Tea is to die for and their Thai BBQ is the stuff that legends are made of! I don't even bother looking at the menu when I am here, I just order the BBQ plate and that's it.

This in the original Thai BBQ Restaurant before all the other branches that sprouted in the San Fernando Valley area and Glendale. They are the best. Not only do they give you enormous portions but everything is so well prepared and tasty. We drive 30 miles from the NE SFV just to eat here because they do things really well.... More

A long-time go to place for our family. You just need to know the perfect time to show up, or else the place will be packed.
