The best Thai food in Los Angeles (so far)!
I've eaten at several Thai restaurants in L.A. over the years, from Venice to Silver Lake and from El Segundo to Northridge. Thus far, I'd have to say that ""Thai Original BBQ"" on Ventura Blvd. in Studio City has the best food. The restaurant itself is fairly small, and the decor is nice. The staff is attentive, stopping by several times for refills and asking if everything is OK. The food is made with high-quality ingredients, especially quality cuts of meat. No rubbery, flavorless meat scraps here! They also balance spiciness quite well. Everything my party of four ordered was excellent: Thai iced tea, spring rolls (Vietnamese-style) with peanut sauce, shrimp rolls, beef and rice dishes, noodle dishes, etc. The curry dish almost resembled a Yankee potroast; the chunks of beef were so tender and large. Two minor complaints: no sticky rice, and next to no parking!
