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.

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...

By far the best thai food you can get delivered in Hollywood.

Average Thai food. Their Rad Naa is good, but they tend to burn the Pad Thai. Used to be cheap, but their prices have gone up and it's probably not worth it anymore.
