We have gone many times and the Thai food is awesome. We've tried all the appetizers and now always get the Hidden Treasures. Delicious! The crispy duck dinner is amazing! The Branzino is a fun experience and yummy, and the short rib is good but a little heavy for us. The crispy duck cannot be beat! The Pad Thai noodles are our first pick followed by Devil's or Pad See You. The two adorable waitresses are the owners daughters and are always happy to help with your selection. It can get pricey so know that going in but it is fine dining and the food is excellent. You get your money's worth!

We've known the owner and her family for years. We knew her since she managed Telasai on Sunset. We followed her she.she opened Si Laa. It was similar to Telasai but on a smaller scale. Still very chic and understated. The food from this kitchen is the cleanest and freshest I've tasted. They have built a loyal following. The staff is the best and very knowledgeable.

This place is an absolute gem. Intimate, family owned/family run. Excellent food, be it spicy or not; it's all delectable. Friendly, attentive service. Extensive wine list. Order your appetizers, main meal, and sides separately. Sides are decent size to share with dining partner. Reservations highly recommended.

We were in LA for the Rose Parade I decided that this was the place to try Thai food. I had had it in Bangkok and the Midwest. Bangkok was decidedly better. So we Ubered from S Monica Pier $17. Surge of course.
Sidebar: loved the concept of Uber but now feel they are chiseling us
Service lovely this seemed to be a neighborhood place. We ordered 2 apps and split the whole fish. Food beautiful and delicious I'm just not a tiny tastes person. Fish a lot of work even though our perfect server deboned it for us. Every other table happily tucking into their food. I should of ordered the pad Thai it looked wonderful gliding by us in the hands of the perfect servers.

Portions is good, taste is a bit too sweet and not spicy enough, service is good and environment is not Thai style, in a more simple US restaurant type...
