I don't know why everyone is dumping on Natalee Thai, because it's a great place that has good food in a fun atmosphere... That being said, Melanee Thai is much more no-frills and has good food for much cheaper.
The place is kind of a dump, but if you can get past the run-down exterior and down-scale interior then you'll find that the food is what matters most, and it is very good. Big portions, good flavors, and not that expensive too.

I live a few blocks away from Melanee Thai and eat there quite often. Good for take out or dining in. The place is cheap and the decor is no frills, but they've put forth a great effort to create a nice atmosphere. They're happy to make substitutions. Yellow curry with shrimp, broccoli, potatos, and onions is my favorite. Make sure to get extra brown rice--it's much better than the white.

I AGREE WITH THE OTHER PERSON, NATALIE THAI IS TERRIBLE, PARKING AWEFUL AND SERVICE AWEFUL. WE USED TO GO TO TUK TUK, BUT THAT HAS GONE DOWN THE TUBES AS WELL. MELANIES SERVICE AND FOOD ARE CONSISTENT. ALWAYS GOOD. LARGE PORTIONS AND INEXPENIVE. THE WAITERS ARE AWESOME. PARKING IS EASY. FREE 2 HOUR PARKING UP THE STREET. THE SHRIMP CURRY IS AWESOME. EVERYTHING WE HAVE TRIED HERE IS GREAT. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!!!!!!!!!1

Natalee Thai is awful and overpriced. Try Melanee Thai on Pico instead. It's cozy and even romantic. The decor is a bit ""thrown together"", but they seem to have done a nice job on what was probably a very limited budget. The food is outstanding. Substituions are no problem. The veggies are very fresh and they love to give you tons of meat, seafood, whatever it is you've ordered. The yellow curry is fantastic with shrimp, and then broccoli instead of carrots. Make sure to order the brown rice with your curry, it's far better than the white rice. I can't say enough good things about this place. Good prices, huge menu and hearty portions suitable for leftovers. Give it a try, you'll be glad you did.

I just had the hugest, most delicious plate of gralicky spicy basil noodles at Melanee- it was my first time here after usually getting take out from east wind or natalee- both on venice. I refuse to wait to sit at natalee's. I dont want to wait ofr 45 minutes to have trendy pad thai! Melanees was a welcome respite from the lines and silly menu names. My friend and I walked right in and were the only ones there for 90 percent of our meal. I had some good veggie potstickers but the noodles were HUGE and DELIOUS and the tofu was perfectly fried. I will definitely go back again even if the ambience is a tiny bit shabby. Loved it!!!

My fiance and I have walked by this place quite a few times. We finally tried it out. The food was excellent (she had the yellow curry w/ shrimp, I had the panang curry). As the other reviewers mentioned, the brown rice was great! Atmosphere is cozy and relaxed. Nothing fancy but who cares. Great food, great price. Nice hidden spot!
