i came from sydney australia and love spicy food, but if you stay at hollywood area its a bit of walk, if you can find taxi to go there or else friends drive it. The Tom yum Soup is really spicy good luck trying.

One of the best Thai restaurants in L.A..They have a huge menu with very authentic Thai food. Service is good for this type of restaurant in Los Angeles. We eat there 3 to 4 times a month with family and friends. Love the water spinach, BBQ beef, steamed whole fish with garlic lime broth, red curry and fried whole fish.

Thanks Palm Thai for the great food every time!

First of all - our group may have been complicated since we were supposed to be 10 people but only 6 of us showed up on time, so we waited for a long time. Although, while waiting we had to move tabled because "regulars might be showing up soon and will want this table". So why sit us there in the first place? The restaurant was practially empty when we got there anyway...
Also, one in the group ordered a drink and it had old berries in it, and the waitress said she would take it off the bill but we still had to pay for it, she just gave us a discount...
The food wasn't awesome but it was OK. Like a Thai restaurant, but like any Thai restaurant. Could've paid less in a take out place.
There was live music, which was quite nice, yet confusing. There was a girl looking like a boy (or the other way around, we couldn't tell) singing covers. Pleasant, but a little awkward since the place was pretty dead.
And - to top it all off. One in our group was gluten intolerant and has asked twice if her order had gluten in it, and the waitress said no. After eating half her portion, the waitress came out and said that actually it had gluten in it. So our friend started freaking out, knowing she would be in alot of pain and her stomach would be upset for days, and she threw up in the bathroom a couple of times.
Not the best mood or vibe, if we put it like that.

So, to sum up...
Not fantastic food.
Old, hard berries that you still have to pay for.
They don't keep track of ingredients (which is major flaw, someone could get really sick, or die?) and since the manager wasn't there that night, no one was in charge. The staff didn't know what to do and felt kinda lost.
Might have a good rep, but I wouldn't recommend it or come back if I return to LA.
