greasy food, bad service – the food here tastes like another other run of the mill thai place. food was realyl greasy, wasnt great, wasnt terrible. everyone in the restaurant was overweight and it was gross to see them while i ate
A Lil Tip – I've been going with my family here since I was a little girl. I LOVE THEIR FOOD!!! We always order the same thing: Shrimp soup, steam rice, shrimp chow mein, after that meal I tend to have an order of their beef sticks AMAZING with their peanut butter sauce and to drink a thai iced tea.
True sometimes you wait for a good while, thats because their food's good and ppl tend to go there and eat, and when ever my family encountered any problem with the food (which we have plenty of times) my father will complain and demand for them to deliver them a better quality of the order and no they didnt charge us for that food and if they did u gotta demand them not to and just pay for what you think is right. I mean this is a great restaurant it's up to you on how you approach the situation.
And yeah the ambience is kinda cheezy but common it's and old restaurant run by asian ppl in LA. What do you expect? But that dosen't bother me, the food makes up for anything and everything.
So to those who don't like this place good that means I'll be waiting a shorter period of time and for those who know what's good cheers!
Ocha Classic is a Disaster – I went to Ocha Classic after hearing about it from a friend who highly recommended it. First of all the wait was long. I assumed this meant the food would be worth the wait. I was wrong.
I ordered a standard thai dish, curry. When they brought it out it legitimately smelled like a barnyard. Think pig shit stuffed in a hoof scattered amongst straw. I couldn't eat it without gagging. They wouldn't take the food back, even though it was the poorest attempt at curry I have ever encountered. So essentially I paid a little under 10 bucks to smell something that resembled manure, which they tried to pass off as curry.
Don't try this.
I LOVE OCHA!! – I've been coming to this restaurant since I could eat, its somewhat of a family tradition to come eat here, whether it be with my whole family... or just a friend or sister...
The food is great the seafood soup is so delicious!!! clams, oysters, octopus, shrimp, fish... (my sister can only eat any of that in this soup)
fried rice is also delicious, chow mein...
overall the food is just great, the service is so-so and the ambience isn't the best but the food makes up for all that :)
Excellent – I've been going to that restaurant since I wa about 11 years old and it is the best thai food I've ever taste and I've been going to other places to compare it and they are not half as good as this one. Ask for the spicy 7 seas sea food
BAD SERVICE – wanted to try a new place, went there with 4 people. waiters come and go , ignoring us. finally we order, they end up bringing completely wrong dishes. we asked if we would get charged for those wrong dishes and they said yes. they dont understand the concept of "customer shouldn't pay for meals they didn't order". the food was ok, prefer tips house for fast thai food.
Good, cheap, take-out Chinese – There's plenty of pan-asian restaurants in Korea-town, but I was delighted to find this value-- so worth it because the chinese-thai-japanese food is reliably good instead of just passable in each of those arenas. I haven't ever seen vegetable dumplings on their menu, but they were recommended to me when I asked about meatless egg rolls and they are fantastic. You get a lot of food with your order, and yes, it's a touch heavy, but overall the place is just what I want in a in a local take-out joint.
OTJAS, the way our kidz like to say it... – A place to go, for good, cheap and fast served food. We go here already for years together, w/ kids or w/ friends and family. Took our parents from Holland and they also loved the food, and they are critical. The spice seafoodsoup is of the hook, and let me tell you if everyone orders someting else, you'll hav e feast that is to big for the table. Mark my words, you'll go home and have the same the next day at your own place (unless you eat it all).
ask for 7 seas soup – The highlight of the house is the so tasteful 7 seas soup. Oh my gosh, anytime you need a pick me upper go here. This soup is the best soup in the world. No other soup can compare. I love this place for that soup. It is forever crowded but worth the wait after you have had the 7 Seas soup. can you "Siete Mares"? Even the asians that work there know what that means. I reccomend this place. Oh the thai ice tea is the bomb too.
