Super cheap- hubbie and I
Super cheap- hubbie and I only paid $70 for dinner for two and two glasses of wine! Very friendly, easy to eat soy-free and gluten-free and simple to book a reservation for right away.

If you want a quiet restaurant with dependably delicious food and gentle Thai service, then this should be on your list. I've been going here for years and it is always good.

Terrific Thai in Santa Monica
Pleasant atmosphere, very nice menu and the food was fantastic and very fresh tasting using minimum of oil.
A definite go-back.

My new favorite Thai restaurant in LA. Oh my god it's awesome. Started with a bowl of Tom Yum Chicken soup and the broth was very flavorful, had a decent kick, and the chicken pieces were good quality and not overcooked. I finally had a spicy red curry that was as good as I was hoping it would be. Not watery at all, super flavorful, and a great level of heat. It blew my mind! Absolutely coming back here for sure.

Pretty good non greasy food.
Pretty good non greasy food.
Nice but relaxed on time service so was parched often.
Beware dishes don't come with rice, each 1 c is $2.25 :)

Reservations Not Needed
It's a quiet spot, but the Pad Thai is SO good. It was just what I was craving. A perfect little neighborhood spot.

Consistently good food
Fresh tasting, delicious, moderately Americanized Thai food. I've been fortunate - the food here has always been very good, although I've heard otherwise from friends. It's the neighborhood restaurant that I visit the most often - reasonably priced, fresh ingredients, tasty, adjustable heat. For the real thing I go to Hollywood or the Valley where the dishes seem much more authentic and unusual, but that's certainly not five minutes from my house.

Solid Thai - Local Favorite
We were introduced to this place months ago but just now make this review after 3 visits. We have many favorite places in West LA and this is one of them. The place is clean and the service is great and friendly. The food is some of the best Thai around. Their prik king with chicken is my favorite. Their Bangkok rolls are clean and the sauce amazing. While I have not ventured into the catfish or the seafood soups, every time we go we see someone eating that. Last time, our table neighbor had it so we asked and she said it was great. The servers are super friendly as well. Parking can be a challenge if you opt not to pay for valet.

Special Thai for a special occasion
Bangkok West will never be one of the coolest hangouts in town, but that wasn't what I was looking for anyway. This restaurant is all about great Thai food. From the appetizers to the main course everything was just delicious. And the Pad Thai is just sublime!

i'd go back again
Really good food, exceptional service, and a little bit pricey for the food. However, given it is Santa Monica, the rent may be a bit high hence the price.
It's been a long time since I had such attentive service. Someone always had an eye on our table and seemed to read our mind about what we wanted. Never did we need to ask for anything.
I definitely would go back again.

Good Thai only 3 blocks from the Promenade and free street parking after 6pm. The service was attentive and friendly. We got the Bangkok rolls which were very fresh on a plate with swirled sweet and sour sauce. We also got the Pad Thai and Panang Curry with Chicken. These are the two dishes I use to rate any Thai restaurant. I'm glad to say they delivered. The portions were good and the curry wasn't greasy. Very nice flavor with a little kick. The Pad Thai came with chicken and shrimp. I wish there was more shrimp and maybe a bit more flavor from the noodles but still quite good. That food along with 2 Singhas, 1 glass of wine and a lemonade came to around $65. Not bad for Santa Monica. I would definitely recommend.
