We traveled from Chicago to LA on Route66 and tested a lot of different restaurants. This was the by far best food we got :) Nice staff, fast service and really good and tasty food.

Always a good choice for a quick meal. We come to this place 3 or 4 times a year when we are on a business trip, but the restaurant owners always recognize us.

Great little place that serves traditional Thai dishes. Make sure to ask them to hold down the spicy-ness if you are not comfortable with the heat. Great for take-out!

Came in for an early 11 am lunch. Only one other customer. Ordered "Chicken with basil" lunch special. Rice was dried out and getting firm and almost hard. Chicken was overcooked and relatively tough. Lots of veggies (zucchini, yellow bell peppers and carrots). Basil flavor was modest. Typical iceberg salad. Deep fried wonton skin with a dab of yellow squash(?)... More

We stopped in after checking into a nearby hotel. A good lunch for $7. Chicken with basil, rice, salad and two wonton's for the price. We enjoyed the flavors. We were there about mid lunch and got a table right away. There's perhaps 8 tables.

The Pad See Ew was too greasy for me but the Curry was pretty good. They will make the dishes as spicy as you would like (a plus for me!). The service was good.

...not sure about the cooking part since the new owner claims to have previous restaurant in Thai town! Hollywood and the Thai foods are better at Hollywood Thai Boat style nearby, so stiff competition to be had! Read review on yelp before giving it a go for take out foods,fyi Fast cooking tho by this small family owned Thai Cheers!
