We were staying in a B&B in Prytania Street so decided to have dinner here. So glad we did. The food is delicious, probably the best Thai food we have eaten. We had to ask for a spoon to make sure we got every last...More

Very modern atmosphere. Everyone loved their meal. I had one of the noodle dishes with shrimp which was fantastic. Summer rolls for the table were great as well. As much as I loved all the cajun and creole meals I had in New Orleans, this...More

When I walked into this modern sleek designed restaurant I thought that there was no way this place would have good Thai food. I was wrong and I will be back again soon to sample more off the ‘nid noi’ menu. The flavors were right...More

LA Thai is a pretty restaurant with mid range to high prices. They have your standard pad Thai & curries but also some more fancy dishes. I got the Tom Yum Goong and the flavors were great. The summer rolls also were full of vegetables...More

Really pretty place. Very modern looking. Food was bright and fresh. Jay Galle is a delightful guy who charms the patrons. Not to mention he looks much younger than his college roommates. I would highly recommend a visit, not only if you like Thai food,...More

Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the

Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife
and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s
