Chao Krung review image
7.5

Chao Krung

Open since 1969, Chao Krung is one of the oldest Thai restaurants in the entire city. But it wasn’t until a recent revamp of both the menu and the Fairfax space itself that this family-run spot went from being a neighborhood standby to a place you seek out. While Chao Krung’s menu is littered with standout dishes, the strength of the place lies in its curries. The kaeng ped yang (red duck curry with pineapple) is a perfect balance of sweet and savory and the kaeng hung-ley (sweet pork belly and pork shoulder) is one of the most unique curries in town. Plus, with its revamped space - complete with a wraparound bar, a few TVs, and big windows looking out at CBS Studios - it’s a good option for a casual midweek date as well.
