like the Pad Thai – My wife and I always go there and get basically the same thing. Pad Thai and Green Curry. We will sometimes try something different but when we go back it’s the Pad Thai and Curry.
Citysearch Editorial Review – Lincoln Boulevard’s calm Thai eatery doles out all the classic Eastern delights like Pad Thai, Mee Krob, Pad See Ew, in addition to cream cheese wontons, papaya salad and a vast array of other choices stemming from the Orient like lemon chicken, kung pao tofu, BBQ pork spare ribs, chop suey and more. The reasonably priced delivery service is popular, but the eclectic interior--complete with fish tank--plays hosts to a devoted local Venice crowd.
Great ambiance - lousy food – If you don't mind chewing on shoe leather described as honey duck, enjoy.
The Mongolian beef was not tasty either.
The service was mediocre and the manager (owner) was not accommodating when we explained that the meat was virtually unmanageable to eat.
He lost two customers, for sure.

Bad food, bad service, bad everything! – Both times that I have ordered here, I have been equally disappointed. First off, let someone who knows how to speak and understand English answer the phone and take orders. Also, it's not the customers' fault that you guys are busy and can't deliver someone's order until an hour and a half later. The first time I called, I had to repeat my address 10 times (no exaggeration!). When the food finally came, it was not at all what I expected. I had ordered pepper steak, but it turned out to be a tv dinner steak thrown into a water downed brown "sauce" with a few frozen vegetables thrown in. After that experience, I thought I would give them a second chance and maybe it'll be better. NOPE! I ordered at 7:12, called at 8:15 when my food still didn't come, spoke to some lady who didn't apologize but kept telling me how busy they were. Then she said they are leaving right now. They finally got to the apartment complex around 8:45 and called me to come open the gate for them. I told them that since they were able to come into the complex to drop their menus at everyone's door, they can come in to deliver my food.
Please, save your money and order from somewhere else.
Very good for Santa Monica/Venice area – Disclaimer: I LOVE Thai food. I will eat Thai food almost anywhere but I am aware that there are some pretty low-quality places in LA (many of which I've eaten at). I used to eat the lunch special at Star of Siam as often as I could but my friend took me to Siam Best one night after work. We had some delicious, high quality vegetarian items (she is vegetarian). We had excellent noodles and the cold spring rolls and garlic pepper shrimp. Everything was really good & higher quality than I am used to. I liked it so much I returned a few weeks later with two friends. Someone ordered the mango salad which I thought sounded boring. I was wrong! It was AWESOME. We also had the noodles and some chicken curry dish. Everything was delicious. I have not tried the soups or desserts. My husband and I ordered take-out last month and our food arrived in about 15 minutes. It was about $18-20 for 2 dishes and an appetizer. We had leftovers the next day.
Bad quality food but ok price – I order BBQ ckicken last time, it so terrible, I can tell that I was made like a month before and reheat when serving us. Chicken smell bad. I saw many customers order BBQ combo, maybe it's cheap but for me taste bad and old. Every dishes are big portion but I expect quality more than quantity. They cook so fast everything finish in less than 10 mins and they served us at the same time. It seems to be fast food restaurant than fine dining cousine.
Not bad, but... – There are much better places in the area for Thai than this. My panang curry was almost too thick, as though it needed more coconut milk. Their pad thai was a bit greasy. Their soups are decent.
staple delivery place for Thai in Venice – I'm a big fan of the shrimp wonton soup and the spicy mint noodles, and delivery is usually pretty fast. The restaurant is spacious and clean, totally serviceable if not exactly cozy or charming.
