The Palms has the best Thai food in L.A., in my opinion, which is why I always recommend the Palms, even though seating is sometimes hard to get, and if you don’t score a booth, you have to seat yourselves picnic table style, elbow to elbow with other patrons. Despite that and an often hectic atmosphere on busy nights, the food is so fresh and tasty. It tastes like mom’s, seriously. Mom was impressed. Perfectly Authentic. Several adventurous choices on the menu too, like bugs and frogs. And if you are lucky, you can be dining on a night with really great, live musical entertainment. Service is fast and reliable, dining area has great decor and feel.
