It's like a lil Thai Whore House that servers tasty food

The website claims, “LA’s Hip Thai Restaurant”. Hip…Hummm! This place isn’t really hip, it’s just that they’ve hired every hot Asian girl with tattoos in LA and trained them on how to make drinks and flirt with dirty old white men. And at Chan Dara there are plenty of old white men that come for the hot Asian ass…I mean staff!

The Happy Hour is good, discounted drinks and a menu of well priced high quality dishes. The dinner menu is great. The Beef Tenderloin Satay is tasty, tender and served with a flavorful peanut sauce and cucumber salsa. Their Mee Krob is one of the best items on the menu. If you haven’t had Mee Krob, it’s Sweet-tangy crispy noodles mixed with shrimp and tofu. The blend of sweet and tangy flavor combined with crispy noodles is delicious and addicting.

The Thai Beef Kabob on Fire is interesting. It’s Barbecued Rib-eye that is marinated with soy garlic-sesame oil and served over coconut rice and veggies. The coconut rice is always a superstar dish at Chan Dara and the Beef is usually cooked to a perfect medium rare if requested that way. What makes this dish fun is that when they serve it to you they light it on fire. It’s a simple fun take on a traditional Kabob.

Their Pad Thai noodles are always a solid staple. I order them every time and every time I am pleased. The Tom Yum Kai and Tom Kah Kai soups are both fantastic. The Tom Yum Kai is hot and sour chicken soup with mushroom and lemon grass. It is fresh and refreshing and has a bit of a bite. The Tom Kah Kai is very similar, but has a sweeter touch to the spicy because of the coconut.

My advice, go to Char Dara for the food, but stay and enjoy the scenery for yourself. Unless of course you’re not into the Far East Flavors…
