1 Palm's Thai Restaurant

Whether you're in the mood for traditional Thai fare or more exciting, less standard dishes like Frog with Pepper and Garlic, you'll enjoy your experience at this beloved Hollywood mainstay.
5900 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028 (323) 462-5073

2 Jitlada

Anyone in search of Ryan Gosling might want to check out Jitlada: this Thai Town restaurant is one of his favorites. The Oscar nominee is a frequent patron at Sarintip “Jazz” Singsanong's establishment, and you will be too after trying the green mussels steamed with lemongrass and basil and soft-shelled crab with curry.
5233 W Sunset Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90027 (323) 667-9809

3 Night + Market

This permanent pop-up inside the formal Thai restaurant of Cafe Talesai jumps on Susan Feniger's street food bandwagon, as that's the focus of this kitschy eatery. The menu is predominantly pork, so if you're into the three little piggies, go for the fried pork tails or the moo sadoong "startled pig."
9041 Sunset Boulevard, West Hollywood, CA, 90069 310-275-9724

4 Bai Plu Thai

Look no further than Long Beach for authentic Thai food. The menu is huge and features everything from noodle dishes to dozens of curies to standard apps like crab rangoon and egg rolls. Come hungry -- you certainly won't be leaving that way.
1626 E 7th St, Long Beach, CA 90813 (562) 436-3123

5 Sutha Thai Kitchen

For a VIP experience, head to the tiny 10-seat Sutha Thai Kitchen in Tustin. It's a hidden gem, beloved as much for its salmon salad as it is its pad thai. Also make sure to try the delicious mango sticky rice.
1161 Irvine Blvd., Tustin, CA 92780 (714) 734-6100
