Asian
Queen Violet is a modern Asian fusion restaurant in an unique European style building with a beautiful floral courtyard. Most of our dishes are inspired by Chef Sara Thongchoet. We also offer traditional Thai and Chinese recipes that make you feel at home. Chef Sara created her own recipes from her apartment in 2010 by cooking for her family and friends. Everyone loved her food, and her friends brought more friends!  She quickly realized that the groups have gotten too big for her apartment. This moment of inspiration sparked her passion and her soul to become a chef.  Chef Sara finally made “Queen Violet” happen in the heart of WeHo!
So why the name “Queen Violet”?
-Queen?  We playfully imagine our customers to be Queen Bees returning to their hive (our restaurant).
-Violet?  In Thailand, violet is the color of the LGBTQ, not the rainbow.  So, we chose violet to represent our support for the LGBTQ community.
So welcome to Queen Violet !

    I loved the ambience but! We had a salad, two starters and two main dishes. We got one of the mains first and then the starters with huge time in between. Because I wanted to have the main together I had to eat mine supper cold. Service was not the best

    Celebrated my birthday here and the food and ambience were excellent along with the service. It took a bit to sit my party of 10 but once we sat everything was great. Super friendly and fast once we placed our order. Food was delish and everyone enjoyed their meals.

    A friend and I went to Queen Violet for brunch, the reviews were amazing and we just had to try it out. When we arrived (with a reservation) there was no one at the booth to greet/seat us, it took about 5-10 min to get us seated but once we were the people were so nice! The drinks were so amazingly beautiful and delicious, the waitress was very accommodating and sweet. We did experience a little slip up with one of our dishes, but the waitress handled it so well! She apologized countless times and brought us the correct dish. The ambiance was nice, a little outdoor area with cute flower set ups, perfect for a girls day! Overall, the food, drinks, employees, and ambiance was great!

    Was not informed about the dinner that night being an “experience”; serving three different dishes, $65 a person. However that wasn’t the issue at hand because I would have been okay paying if I felt it was worth it. The three course meal was extremely late in delivering the appetizer to my date, leading to my appetizer being cold once it arrived. They decided to give the first and second course meals all at once because of their lateness and disorganization with the appetizers, leading to 4 plates and drinks bundled together in a extremely small dinner table. The food was truthfully just okay, but not worth the experience price that was ultimately charged for. Cold for sure. Too many miscommunicated calls, especially in the end when I asked for the desert to be boxed and the check sent over. They only boxed one of the deserts and didn’t send the check. I had to go and grab the check myself. The dinner took over 2 hours to be completed. It’s the small things that made me felt like I wasn’t cared for. The weird thing was that the restaurant didn’t look entirely busy. 18% Tip was also charged automatically without consent. We were left very unsatisfied and I hope you guys think twice coming. Ambience is what this spot has going for it but it’s not worth the frustration with the rest of the aspects.

    Nice decor, a violet light fills the garden dining area. Nearly empty on the Tuesday night before Valentine’s Day. Stood at the front of restaurant for 10 min to be greeted despite having hardly any patrons dining at that moment. The food arrived quickly and tasted great, however we were never checked on once the main dishes arrived. Had to flag someone down for the check after 15 mins of completing our meals. The service was lacking which I would usually cut some slack for but it was a slow night, so I was disappointed. Spicy beef salad was their saving grace for a recommendation. Parking lot is a plus in that area too.

    Delectable dishes, best shared family style in order to sample. Eating on the patio a must. Heaters keep you toasty after dark. All the noodle dishes rule! Try the Hawaiian fried rice-a triumph! So friendly and welcoming. A wonderful place for Birthdays and any special occasion. We’ll be back!

    Queen Violet was the PERFECT venue for my friends, family and golden retriever for my 40th birthday party! The atmosphere and lighting easily fostered fellowship and camaraderie amongst us. The staff was very accommodating to my 15+ guests. The food was served hot and was delicious!! I will be spending special occasions at Queen Violet in the future!!

    First beware that they add an automatic 16% service charge for party of 1-4 persons which is kind of rare for this kind of neighborhood restaurant. I almost missed it and gave another 20% tips. Most items we ordered tasted good, especially the desserts, pancake and mango sticky rice. Unfortunately, the steak was so so. The waitress told us that the standard steak was cooked to medium rare but it looked more like medium. And the quality of the steak is really subpar for the price of $35. But all had great presentation, very vibrant colors. I asked and was told that the purple color pancake and noodle are made of natural ingredients, not food coloring which is good. The grilled octopus was a bit too sweet for my liking but it was pretty tender. I think we will come back to try other items if we are in the neighborhood.

    When I tell you this is probably going to be one of my favorite restaurants, most definitely is in the top threes & I’m a very picky about where I eat at, I’m not a picky eater because your girl gets down!! I like everything but pork! Most definitely start off the lamb chops & egg rolls! I got their Lobster Pasta which was great, just would tell them to put not so much lemon but it was amazing but next time I’m going to try more of their curry dishes! My friend got the Kung Po Chicken and she enjoyed very much ! Oh also don’t forgot to get the BANANA SMORES!! They only get you half a slice of banana wish it was the whole thing but it definitely worth it! Have a try family you won’t regret it!

    Queen Violet is a gem in WeHo! We got reservations for 10:30am and were promptly seated - even got to choose where to sit. Service was excellent, they checked on us enough. Food and drinks arrived in a timely manner. Good portions for the price. The ambiance was super cute and would recommend it to others!

    Restaurant is very cute. Food a little overpriced - I ordered the brunch special and my scrambled eggs were a little runny. Had 7 people - everyone had one drink and the meal was $300. Service was okayyy. We were seated for at least 10 minutes before anyone came to our table. Overall a cute place, with nice ambiance and average food. A very big selling point is they have a parking lot for their restaurant.

    Beautiful location and nice to have dedicated lot parking nearby. Great menu selection. Friendly service but our drinks didn’t come till the entrees. Our group of 5 all got our entrees over a 15 minute period. So the first one was almost done eating when the last entree arrived. Other than the lags in service I would highly recommend.

    We were the first one to arrive first thing in the morning and waited over 30 minutes before someone took our drinks order. The food was okey. The purple pancake was dry. Other guests ended up leaving since no one was there to help them out. They were definitely short staffed but I’ve been to this restaurant once before and we also waited just as long.

    The food was delicious and our entire party enjoyed their meal. The service was incredibly slow. We had to go find someone to take a drink order because no staffers were around. The food was not brought out together. We had to find someone again to request our check. Most likely, I won’t be back.

    Went for an early Sunday brunch at 10:30am and we had our pick of tables. The courtyard area has lots of faux flowers spread throughout, so you can get pics pretty much anywhere you sit. They have shades up over the tables, so no one was blasted by the sun throughout our meal. They offer brunch items, but we ordered from the Thai food menu and everything was delicious, but nothing groundbreaking. It was a little pricier than your average Thai restaurant, but you're also paying for the ambience & vibes. Our waiter and the staff in general were very attentive, and they do have a small amount of free parking in a lot a few doors down, but you have to pay close attention or you might miss the sign.
