We had a very enjoyable birthday dinner. The menu is big, the wait staff knowledgeable and attentive and the food was excellent. We will definitely be back.

Went here on recommendation of LA Times. Food was so so, but even worse, there were kids everywhere crying.
Would not go back.
Limited bar menu. Lightly fried Dover Sole came out like a brick. I rarely write a review, but I would hate for someone to go here for a special occasion.

Made the mistake of ordering too much food, but the food that I did manage to eat was authentic and tasty. Will definitely return on my next trip to Cali

Real good food, tasty and spicy.
Short but pleasant wine list. Deception with the dessert.

An intimate, small restaurant with beautiful décor, including gilt Thai headdresses as wall art, and crystal chandeliers - very classy. Food was excellent, well prepared and a very nice presentation. A charming local Thai restaurant with good food.

we decided to try a new Thai place so I googled yelp and this came up as on of the best in Santa Monica. The fried shrimp appetizer was so skinny I couldn't find the shrimp inside the wonton- that was rolled intend of folded as it should be. So it was a mouth full of stale tried oil! The needles were fine, nothing special. The chicken curry sauce was good, but the three pieces of very dry chicken was hard to get down. will not return. The best part was the friendly attentive service.One glass of Prisoner wine was &26.00 !!! just stop it!

I loved that the tofu stir fry was so tasty yet not oily. The green curry was the same, very flavorful but not heavy.

upscale Thai which is a little more expensive but well worth the price. The duck with spinach is the crispiest duck ever and the pad thai is wonderful. Their appetizer are great also.
