Admittedly, this gem is a favorite of mine and everyone I bring. There are plenty of items beloved and suitable for each person's dietary restrictions, food allergies and sensitivities. Every menu items is plated beautifully. Many dishes include a medley of vegetables, often comprised of broccoli, bok choy, carrots, baby corn, bamboo shoots, sauted onions, red bell peppers, and green... More

In terms of service, we were seated in 5 or so minutes, but nearly 15 until we had water. Our server was polite and efficient with taking our order, and brought our drinks quickly. It was 20 or so minutes before the food came. In terms of food, it was okay. The curry with tofu was nice; the pad se-eau... More

this is a very nicely decorated, low key and comfortable restaurant with attentive and friendly service and very good food. The prices are a but high, but if you want high quality thai food, this is a good place to go. Noodle dishes, vegetable dishes, soups, appetizers, all got rave reviews from our party of eight. I can vouch for... More

I had the filet that was good overall. I am not a big Thai food person, but I went with a friend and it was good. The soup was excellent, but I can not remember what I ordered. Egg rolls were also delicious with the dipping sauce. Parking is on the street or at the library across the street so... More

If you like your Thai food then you have to give this place a try, the food is delicious and such good value for money. Some of the best Thai food I have tasted was in Thailand, the food I had at Bangkok West was equally as good. The only issue I had was with the duck pancakes as there... More

Love Thai food and this place is up there with the best. Great service, we booked ahead on open table, it worked well, the food was great. Good value too. A short walk from the main Santa Monica drag but worth it.

It's a well varied menu, plenty of options but mostly I don't get further than the pad thai and the yellow curries which are just superb. Hearty portions, clean rice, fresh veg & spot on sauces, every time I go here, which is fairly often. The dining room is bare bones and small so if you go when it's busy... More

A neighborhood Thai restaurant with typical well-prepared dishes. Service is good, and room is simple and attractive. Worth going is you like Thai food and are in the neighborhood.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
