“Quiet atmosphere, tasty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Attentive service, and good food. Very quiet, and you might even have the place to yourself! Deserves to be more popular, as the food is delicious.

“Not bad, not perfect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Cute little restaurant at the end of Venice Beach's Grand Canal. We'd go again, though our experience wasn't perfect.

Pros: good quality food. fish curry was very good, though one of our dishes (Panang chicken curry) tasted different than any Thai dish either of us had tasted. "Different" is normally great, but in this instance seemed like something was amiss with the recipe. Outdoor and indoor seating. A few indoor tables have curtains that can be drawn around the table, lending an air of privacy.

Cons: long waits between visits by server. We've lived in Europe, so are used to what some Americans consider "slow" service, but waiting 10 minutes for water or a menu when there are only 5 tables occupied seemed odd. Soup came at the same time as the entree, which was about 25 minutes after we ordered (apparently they were out and had to make more). Not sure if the service was typical or if they were just having an off night. If normal, I'd rate 3 stars.

“The food was delicious!”

This restaurant was recommended to us by locals! The food was delicious! We sat outside by the Venice Canals...full moon... Very relaxing atmosphere! I would definitely eat here again!

“A bit too cosy.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Ok food and plenty of it, Ok atmosphere, but really nothing special. They try to cram too many people in, on too large tables, to be honest I was glad to finish my food and get out, it was all a little bit too cosy for me and the lighting was very dubious. One man even brought his own torch to read the menu, clearly he was a returning satisfied customer so it can't be too bad, just wasn't an enjoyable experience for me.

“Cosy Thai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Good Thai restaurant, close to the canal. It has an outside area in the summer and a cosy restaurant inside during the cooler months. All the favorites are on the menu, Interesting toliet off kitchen layout that encourages them to keep a clean kitchen!
