I am in LA spending Christmas 2016 with family and this is a favourite LA Thai restaurant of my cousins and now definitely added to my list of favourite. We enjoyed as a starter the Tod Mun Pla (Thai Fish Cakes) which were loaded with flavour from the sweet basil and kaffir lime leaves...so so yummy!!! Next, we were vigorously... More

Upon recommendation of our waitress we had a roasted chicken with sticky rice and green curry with a side dish of steamed rice. For starters we shared a roll. Delicious!

The food was enjoyable and the service was attentive. The place had a nice feel. The food wasn't the most flavorful Thai we've had, but it was certainly pleasant.

You really can't go wrong at this little spot on Fairfax across from CBS studios. The Monday lunch buffet hit the spot! We popped in for a quick bite before trekking to the Grove. Our server Toy was so cheerful and helpful, while managing an entire packed restaurant. The lunch buffet is a steal at $8.95 per person. Highlights include... More

This place usually has decent food - not great but not horrible either and so I usually go about once a month and have their lunch buffet, something I have done for the last 8 months or so. After eating lunch there today, I found an 18% surcharge added to my bill and when I asked what it was for,... More

I've traveled to Thailand a bunch of times in the past few years and this place was pretty close to the real deal! I went there for lunch today and had an amazing Chicken/Shrimp Pad Thai. I opted to go with 4 out of 5 on their spicy scale and it burned enough that I'm glad I didn't go all... More

Although it is not aa authentic as ones in Thailand, its as good as it gets in LA. Be prepared for the restaurant smell as it stinks a... More

So we have been to a lot of Thai restaurants in in our 2 month stay in the USA. Most of which have been great. And luckily this one stayed in that pattern. A 10 minute walk from our hostel, we made the trip here 2 nights in a row for food after it was recommended by some Australian ladies... More

Have tried a few times and consistently very good thai food. Feel a bit sorry for these guys having a B, after a very poor restaurant experience yesterday, at a highly rated A restaurant, these guys deserve some credit. If you like and used to good authentic thai food you will not be dissappointed. Philip

About thirty years ago, I worked at a facility across the street from Chao Krung, so I had lunch there at least three times a week for years. My favorite was Pad Thai with chicken. Oh, so delicious. As I have since moved away, I make it a point to visit when I come to town.. They have an extensive... More
