Ordered a curry and tandoori and both were delicious. Basic restaurant but food was great, very quick and easy dinner.

I would have rated this more like a 3 if it wasn't that the food is actually pretty darn good. I sat outside to enjoy the beautiful so-cal weather and it didn't seem as though the sweep nor wash out the very small eating area outside. The other thing they can improve significantly would be service. One guy brought the... More

In a city with plenty of pretentious eateries, Pot and Pan Thai is a refreshing change. The dining room is spartan and utilitarian with forty watt lighting. Friendly though. Service is efficient. Menu is not the widest but all your faves are here: I ordered a Yum Nuah salad with a pad thai on the side. My daughter ordered a... More

Many Thai restaurants in the US deliver a watered-down version of this delicious cuisine. Pot and Pan really gives you a taste of Thailand. Prices are good here, too. I don't like lunch here as much because the selection is limited, but the dinners are great and you can also byob without corkage. My favorites include all their curries, noodles... More

Delicious and spicy padh Thai and green curry. Absolutely recommend this place. Don't let the appearance scare you - the food is awesome. The service was a little inattentive at first but warmed up. This is a place for unpretentious foodies but not foodie wannabes who need all the bells and whistles.

Don't expect any effort decor wise but the Thai food is pretty amazing.we ordered chicken in yellow curry with very dark brown rice that was very good. The miso soup is outstanding.

Dirty, needing in maintenance. A good cleaning and updating would serve this place well. Seems to do a good take away trade. Menus were being cleaned at a table not far from where we were eating and it was obvious from the cloth that they hadn't been cleaned in a very long time. May have enjoyed the meal more if... More

Amazing thai food, maybe the best in LA. Horrific customer service (mainly on Saturdays). We have ordered from this place nearly 2-times per week for the better part of 2 years. We LOVE their M-F delivery team (both the order taking & delivery has been seamless). Considering we're regular customers, when we've ordered on SAT a couple times, we've waited... More

Pretty good for a quick dinner before a meeting nearby. Fast and tasty. . .not my favorite Thai food, but it will work when I am in the area.

Other than the Pad Thai, regardless of what you order, all of the food tastes alike. Luckily it all tastes delicious. -- It's not authentic. But it's good.

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.
