I love this fave Thai restaurant in Hollywood. Everything on you the menu is excellent, if you know your Thai food. Today I had the best dish here, roast pork with chinese broccoli, ask for extra garlic and ask for crispy skin pieces (their the best). The shrimp friend rice is excellent here also. Go through the menu to discover... More

I like the Chinese broccoli mixed with roasted pork and rice. Also I like Seafoods Combination meal. The restaurant is also appropriate for take-outs. For a dating Couple and business meeting, I don't think this is very recommendable. The server who took our order seems tired and in hurry. We feel not a traditional businesslike attitude. But the restaurant overall... More

There are so many different Thai restaurants in Thai Town area near Hollywood. It is difficult to distinguish one to another and we usually keep coming back to the same place again to avoid confusion. I read from Trip Advisor so many recommendation on the Roasted Pork over Chinese broccoli, I'd got to try that one. Roasted or deep fried... More

Good authentic Thai food. Very plain atmosphere. Not a place to take a date or a client. This is where you get crispy fried pork belly and garlicky green papaya salad with broccoli.

This place is ok, not particular good, not particularly bad and way behind many other Thai restaurants in California. This is more of a cafe. Less care taken over preparation than in a restaurant.

I have been coming here every week for about three months now and I am always highly-satisfied with each visit! For comparison, I have visited Thailand about 5 times and stay away from the tourist areas to find the most "local" Thai dishes. At this restaurant, "Yai" does Lard Na better than any restaurant in Thailand. Order the Pad Thai... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
