I went in the evening because my phone app said it was open until 10 pm. Apparently it closes at 9 pm ... why so early? Still, next day, I tried the lunch hour and was pleasantly surprised by the food. Being a lunch special, I would have like more penang sauce with the curry but it was flavorful enough.... More

Love this cute restaurant just off of Pasadenas Colorado blvd which serves amazing Thai cuisine for a reasonable price. The shrimp Penang is not to be missed.

Small but tastefully decorated spot in Pasadena ' s Old Town, Cafe Linda offers authentic Thai food at a reasonable price. The spring roll appetizer was a generous portion and the Pad Thai was good. Friends reported good things about their chicken satays and sizzling entree. Go early; we did and it was packed by the time we left.

My friend picked Cafe Linda's because we were in Pasadena and wanted Thai food. She found a couple of options and Cafe Linda was open just a little longer and and seemed a good choice. It turned out to be a wonderful choice. This modest yet appealing small restaurant is nestled in among the trendy spots in Old Town Pasadena.... More

We ate at this place during visit to Pasadena. Ordered some fried rice, noodles & chicken curry. Curry was very good & other food were good but not that authentic Thai and it was more westernized.

They have a good lunch special for under 10 dollars, that comes with soup or salad. Tried few of their dishes, and everything has been tasty. Only downside is that this place is TINY - so it may be hard to get tables.

it is really nice to finally find a real Thai restaurant in LA that does not kill you with too much salt. The chefs are from Thailand and really prepare excellent food. NICE!!

This is a small thai restaurant, but has the best Thai food I've found so far in Pasadena. It tasted like my mom's homemade Thai food. The Thai Iced Tea with Boba is delicious. We usually order the yellow curry with chicken or the spicy red curry with chicken and always the Drunken Noodles which are too delicious to describe.... More

A fabulous Thai fusion. Quaint, great food, great service. They have several unique dishes. If you love Thai and would like a gourmet twist... Linda Cafe will not disappoint you.
