Wat Thai is a Buddhist temple located in the San Fernando Valley. Los Angeles has a huge Thai population, many living in North Hollywood, just south of this temple. The best time to go is on Sundays or during a Thai festival. Last year, I visited the temple during the Thai New Year (Songkran festival) which happens mid-April and it was pretty amazing - live music, lots of people, tons of cheap food stalls.
On Sundays, there is a modest food court downstairs that sells typical Thai fare like Pad Thai, papaya salad and iced coffees. Most of the dishes are are around $3-7. The proceeds go to the monks and the temple.
Parking is available on the streets in the surrounding neighborhoods, as well as at the Temple - entrance is on Cantara Street. If you go during a festival or holiday, expect to park several blocks away and walk (or follow signs for their parking shuttle).
