It's a well varied menu, plenty of options but mostly I don't get further than the pad thai and the yellow curries which are just superb. Hearty portions, clean rice, fresh veg & spot on sauces, every time I go here, which is fairly often. The dining room is bare bones and small so if you go when it's busy... More

A neighborhood Thai restaurant with typical well-prepared dishes. Service is good, and room is simple and attractive. Worth going is you like Thai food and are in the neighborhood.

We get take out all the time from Bangkok and it's consistently the BEST thai food we have found on the west side--fresh vegetables, great flavor. Our favorites are the Green Curry and the Tom Ka Soup!!!

I noticed this place almost immediately on opening the map the hotel provided. I love Thai but haven't had anything good since moving from Ireland back to Memphis... After exploring the promenade, I headed over for a quick lunch. The service was good and the food was better. I'll definitely go back on my next visit to Santa Monica.

My colleague picked this restaurant and I have to admit I went with pretty low expectations. The restaurant was almost empty when we walked past to reserve a table for later and was just as empty when we returned over an hour later so I presumed I was in for a mediocre stab at one of my favourite cuisines.

We went for dinner with a 9:00 reservation (made through their website) and they shouldn't take reservations that late if they don't want to stay open.....we were told we had to "order right away as the kitchen was closing in 15 minutes" shortly after we sat down....and our dinners came out 3 minutes after our appetizers ....also, the waitstaff was...
