Rating: Decent Thai
My friend Larry and I were going to try some hole-in-the-wall highly rated Thai place deep in the valley but they were closed so we ended up here at this larger more established Ventura Blvd spot.
Red curry with mixed seafood. The typical coconut curry. But it was very good. Nice and rich. Not particularly spicy but not overly sweet.
A kind of special chicken curry. This was a little hot and had a nice complex flavor.
Overall, this was solid Thai. Somewhere between lousy Americanized Thai and an awesome place like Jitlada. But I’ve had much better Thai in LA.
