The second location of the massively popular Thai joint might not have the party vibes and beer towers like its original Sunset Strip restaurant, but its kitschy vibe is the perfect match for Silver Lake. This is some of the finest Thai food in the city (the menu is nearly identical to the original), in a casual setting suited for almost anything. Warning: The bright space isn’t particularly big, so waits can get insane. But that crunchy rice salad and those wings are worth it.
