This is not your typical Thai food restaurant. I am sure it has been somewhat "Americanized" but that is OK because it is unique and delicious food. My wife had beef kabob with rice, and she loved it. I had Thai Beef and it was...More

The Panang was some of the best tofu we ever had. Was going to give a glowing review until I realized that we ordered before the end if lunch special and was charged dinner prices. I recommend it, but pay attention to your bill.

Absolutely delicious thai food. The tofu satay and green curry are particular highlights. The service was also great. I will recommend and revisit.

The flavors here are subtle and delicate. Try the brown rice - nutty and delicious. The staff are really helpful and friendly. Will return and recommend.

Had a very nice Valentine's Day dinner at Chan Dara on Pico. It was crowded and the service was slow but the food was delicious. Really good spicy soups, veggie and tofu was light and tasty. Nice evening!

After 30+ years, this is still a good place, but I miss the original Cahuenga location. My wife says that it wasn't as good and was twice as expensive as where we normally go in OC. But that's all she knows. Chan Dara was the...More

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
