One man band!

We walked in and there were two other tables eating inside and one outside...but there was no one to be found. A couple of minutes later a man rushed out of the back and sat us down. After that short wait...no problem. The restaurant is quaint and nicely decorated. Our server was timely with... read more

Our usual LA Thai restaurant was closed due to a fire. :( So while wondering around we discovered this likely-looking place located next to Gelsons on Franklin. We orderwed enough to eat and take home: Chicken Pad Thai, BBQ Chicken, Beef Mussaman Curry, Cashew Nut Chicken and a sort of frozen coconut yogurt (they were out of coconut ice creqam,... More

I like spicy Thai food. It's supposed to be that way. But my MEDIUM-hot yellow curry chicken was too spicy for my taste. It was good, but I couldn't eat it all due to the flames in my throat. The other 3 in our group enjoyed their choices. We chose this place due to convenience. I'd go again, but wouldn't... More

It was a nice restaurant with an inviting atmosphere. The vegetable dumplings were delicious but the pad see-ew was just ok. There are many better Thai restaurants that I've been to.

Excellent food in a nice, peaceful setting. Best spicy eggplant I've ever had. Friends had vegetable soup, orange duck, and one of the red curries. Everyone loved their dishes. Service was great.

I was in LA traveling for work and wanted to adventure outside of the populated and over priced food areas. I came across Pimai which is located about 8 miles or so from the Hollywood sign near the strip. I was really happy to see a place where I did not have to pay for parking too. I found the... More

Service was slow, our dishes were mixed up. Food was good but nothing special. We doubt it whether we ever come back here again.

It's more of a Thai fusion food but nevertheless pretty damn good. Eggplant is amazing. Nice interiors, cool waitress...

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
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.
