If there was a level below one star I would give this experience a rating three levels below that. The waitress with the long redish hair was unpleasant, unprofessional, and downright indignent. It started when we first came in. She came over threw the menus on the table and walked away. When she finally came back I asked for water and she walked to the corner and talked to another employee then went outside to talk on her cell phone. When she brought the water she asked if I was ready to order in a very negative tone. After my meal came she never came back to check on me. I needed more rice and wanted to order a Mai Tai. She acted like she never heard of the drink and I had finished my meal by the time she came back with it. By the way it was lunch time and there were only two other customers seated. The food was justed ok and the service was terrible. I started not to leave a tip but decided rather to give her 5% mostly in coin to express my dissatisfaction. I will never go back and will make sure I tell everyone I know not to waste their time. Please take this spot off your list as based on the service, they won't be in business much longer.

Been here many times but I think this will be our last! I use to praise them for their drinks but my last experience, well let's just there was a dead fly in my Mai Thai. Food was NOT good at all, vege fried rice & the crab fried rice we ordered were watery & the the basil beef we got had no flavor, and our appetizer, spring roils, was all mush inside! Waitress was rude! It almost seemed like she was rushing us to leave so we don't say anything about the dead fly in the drink! We thought that since there was a dead fky in our drink that they would comp us something, but NOPE, nothing! And as soon as we got in the car and looked at the restaurant we notice they had a ""C"" rating! Damn should have seem that before we went in and I would have for sure not gone in! Like I said, place WAS good, but not any more!

When I go out to eat, I expect to pay a lot for my meal. I also expect to get a lot of food for that money. I'm a bit of a foodie and only want the best. Well, this place did deliver a great meal that I really enjoyed, only the portion was so small that I left feeling hungry still. The price wasn't worth the meal. However, the ambiance is very nice.

I have been here 10+ times and it never disappoints. They have a fantastic Happy Hour (1/2 off appetizers & drinks) and wonderful cocktails. I always order the Thai Tea Martini and an order of steamed pot stickers... both are hard to beat! My two favorite dishes are their spicy fried rice and pad thai. Their spring rolls are pretty tasty too.

Wife THROWS menus, slams ANYTHING delivered onto table, while customer is SEATED!! She needs to STAY AT HOME, since is NOT cordial or welcoming!!!
Dark haired female and male owner are more hospitable.
There is NO sign or printed material stating purchase MUST be in excess of $10, to use card! So they add charges to make up difference! This is a BB violation!!!
White and Asian customers are extended ""Thank you"" upon completion of meal. Others are not!!!
Route to RestRoom is blocked by separators disallowing a wheel chair or walker to access Rest Room.

Terrible service and rude staff. Been here 3 times in total one of which was take out and they have been rude every single time. Tried to go for lunch today and give them the benefit of the doubt but this will be the last time I go near this place. The place was empty and they were going to sit us at a table that is practically in the entry to the restaurant. I suggested another 2 person table nearer to the back of the restaurant and they would not allow us saying they might get a big party and they ""might"" have to use it for that. I said that Wahoos would be happy to have our business and she gave us a dirty look and waved goodbye.

I ordered lunch to go today. I got back to my office and was not happy that my short ribs were 98% fat and just totally unappetizing. I ordered this because I wasn't impressed with their chicken the first time I went. Gave them a second shot and was disappointed again., especially when I discovered three plastic beads in my food! I was even more unimpressed when I called to complain and the manager blew me off and said, ""Do you know how many mongolian beefs I sold today? Impossible. I'll give you a new lunch."" Umm, no. I don't want another disgusting plate of food with pieces of your cook's jewlery in it. Never again.

I brought my mom to have dinner there last night. We had Prig King. It's $12.95 including ,appetizer, cocktails (happy hour). It's very good deal! We both had Tom Yum Shrimp soup and Dumpling as appetizer. I tried Pad Thai with Shrimp and my mom had Chicken Basil sauce. We had coconut rice c and sticky with mango as dessert to share. I just want to say it's perfect! Also, the service is very attentive and fast. Waitresses are very helpful and friendly. My mom was very happy and she would recommend her friends to visit Tawanna thai when they're comming to the LA City. I would to go back again soon next week before my broadway show. See you soon, Tawanna thai
