    This is my all time favorite Thai restaurant & come at least once a week. I usually get the black & pepper beef over rice w/ egg on top, chicken fried rice or pad see ew. Open late 3am & really cheap.

    The roasted duck noodle soup is in an intensely flavored stock with five spices that linger in the background. It comes with delicious, chewy egg noodles mixed with fried garlic and celery leaves. Read more

    Best late night Thai restaurant. Cash only, open until 3am. Stop by Bangluck Market next door if it's open for cheap Thai groceries.

    This old-school Thai Town noodle joint serves late into the night, when the local bar goers and Hollywood trouble-makers need a hangover cure. Read more

    The spicy coconut milk soup was the best I've had - they are generous with the meat and mushrooms. Pad see ew and fried short rib were good too. Papaya salad was very drenched in spice

    The "Roasted Duck Noodle Soup" is phenomenal. The moment the broth hits your lips, you'll be hooked. (*I like mine EXTRA spicy!)

    The Thai boat noodles are good, there is a lot of meat and the noodles are soft. There is a small parking lot outside.

    Try the garlic pepper shrimp. Fried wontons are a meal on itself.

    I've been eating at this place for 25 years and I love it, but they need to close it down for a week and sanitize it top to bottom!
