One look at Los Angeles’s restaurant scene says it all — L.A. is a cultural melting pot. Home to the largest Thai population outside of Asia, Los Angeles is saturated with delicious Thai restaurants that are loved among diners. On our mission to find the city’s finest Thai food, we sought the expertise of local food bloggers. Today’s post features Howard Meyers of Consuming LA, Anita Lau of diary of a Mad Hungry Woman, Vegas and Food, Wasima of tiffin unboxedand Gabriel Woo of Woo! Food.

Jitlada 5233 W Sunset Blvd

“Jitlada serves insanely amazing Southern Thai Food. The menu is incredibly extensive, and much of it is spicy. Your heart will race, your mouth will burn, and your forehead will perspire, but your stomach will thank you!” –Consuming LA

“What’s not to love? The special menu consists of super spicy dishes not meant for the faint-hearted!” –Anita


Sanamluang Café – 5176 Hollywood Blvd

“One of the popular open-late Thai restaurants in Thai Town. Most items on the menu are between $6 and $8, and you get the food pretty fast. Yes, the food is good.” –Vegas and Food

Ganda Siamese Cuisine – 5269 Hollywood Blvd

“I really liked the food here. The flavors were deep and satisfying. Of the three different dishes I ate, I must say the Fried Catfish with Basil was my favorite.” –Gabriel Woo

Sapp Coffee Shop  5183 Hollywood Blvd

“The best boat noodles ever! Thick, dark, rich and oh-so-flavorful. Dishes are street food style and very satisfying.” –Anita

Night + Market – 9041 W Sunset Blvd

“It is unexpected to find small plates of authentic Thai street food in the trendy part of the Sunset Strip. Night + Market…provides all that and more in a sleek, gallery-like setting that perfectly highlights the soul-satisfying food.” –Wasima
