It is my favorite mango sticky rice in all of LA. They also have a vegan menu And everything I've tried has been delicious

The food was delicious, and the waitress was nice!

First let me say I like this place, its cute and the staff is really nice. I usually pop in for take out. Each time I go I ask for extra spicy with fresh thai chilis, I make a point of going overboard with my request. The food is really good but I not even 1 on a scale of 1 to 5 for heat. I look forward to finding the delicious chiles in my chicken coconut soup and there was not a single chili to be found in either dish. Guys really when a customer asks for spicy put some chili in it please.,

This is a small quaint place for Thai food. We often visit this restaurant because of the selection of Thai dishes. They are always changing the interior to keep it nice. Every time we go here we see something new. If you get a chance stop in and enjoy a quiet place to have dinner where you can carry on a conversation with shouting. Something you can't do at many other restaurants.

I had an awesome time in this spot. We liked the extraordinary vibes and the menu. The staff members are super affable. I?m happy we finally managed to visit this place.

I used to love this place and even gave it an "Excellent" on BeyondMenu. But it has seriously gone downhill. Yesterday I ordered delivery of Ginger Pork and asked (as I have every time in the past) to leave the mushrooms out and instead substitute in "snow peas". Because I ordered through a delivery service that simply hands you the food and leaves, it wasn't until I opened the dish that I realized that instead of snow peas the restaurant had used...frozen peas and carrots! The tiny, little diced kind. It was so bad I had to throw it out. This isn't the first time the restaurant has either lessened the size, cheapened the quality and/or raised the price. With so many good Thai restaurants in the area, I won't be ordering from East Wind again.

This spot is worth giving a shot. They have large portions for affordable prices. Constantly neat and with excellent character. Highly recommended.

We had Thai East Wind delivered and the food was AWFUL. We ordered wonton soup and chicken. The chicken tasted disgusting and we had to throw it away. The wonton soup was ok, but it wasn't delicious and/or fresh. Thai East Wind -- you guys need to pick better ingredients, and meats/poultry, and prepare the food better because we can tell the difference between a good Thai place and well, this place! We wasted $30 on food delivery, will never ever order here again.

It seems like there's tons of decent Thai places nearby, but Thai East Wind is my go-to for takeout. I've had the pad thai, the pad see eew, and the tofu mixed vegetables, and they've all been consistently very good. I will say the dumplings were only so so though.

The paid Thai was too sweet, the peanut sauce tasted only like peanut butter, and the staff was rude. I asked them to pack up my food for me when I was done eating, one of the women glared at me, i told her my hands were full and she laughed at me. I obviously want to support plant based businesses, but as a costumer I don?t appreciate being laughed at. I did not feel like a valued customer. Prices were fair.

I was fully prepared to give this place a rave review for amazing tasting food. But there were 2 hairs in my food. Fully embedded and wrapped around my food in pineapple curry. It was so disgusting I threw the rest of the food away. Disgusting. Never again!

This place has the best coconut soup..

Explicitly said no peanuts on a to go order because a peanut allergy, and they put peanuts.

We ordered food tonight and it was really yummy. It was also delivered quickly despite of the text we got from the ordering app that said it was going to take almost an hour. We had ordered here many times before and it was good but we really think that it was tastier tonight (we hadn't ordered in months). The pad thai had a lot of sauce (which we love) and it was good, the cashew nut chicken had way less cashews than usual but it was so tender and tasty that we didn't care and the pineapple fried rice was also very good. We will definitely be ordering soon again.

I don't know what has happen to them. We've been ordering take out for three years from them and their food used to be so good. The last two times we order take out it wasn't good. Taste and Quality have gone down hill. Did they change chefs?

Stopped here for a late dinner while traveling, we were glad to have this option. The Penang curry is nice and spicy and savory. The peanut sauce on the chicken satay is a good balance of savory and sweet. The servers are friendly and attentive. Worth a visit.

Chad D.

The PAD THAI, omg! Is the best I've had in a long time! The sauce they use is so good!!! Love it

Lorette M.

I have order from here many, many times over the years as a local. Food is good but as prices have gone up the food portions(such as satay) have decreased. Also, you always have to remind them to include the free egg rolls coupon offer which they should do as a good will / marketing gesture! I get so tired of having to always ask.

My Favorite Thai Place food is so.good and they have lunch specials I always try to stop in for lunch when I am in the area

The food is good. The atmosphere is refreshingly not postmodern L.A., but full of real wood. The staff is friendly and not gotta-turn-these-tables intrusive. Asian Americans like this Thai restaurant.

Food was OK, experience was pretty lame. Got delivery. Drink fell over and spilled out of cup (thankfully was contained in a bag, but still, it was messy and I lost at least 10% of it. Steamed dumplings came on top of mixed greens...mmm, hot, steaamed, wilted salad...and were pretty bland. Pad-see-ew was rather dull but with a lot of garlic (unexpected and unwelcome). Tofu just thrown in there, not mixed with any sauce for flavor. Driver had only a $5 bill for change, and suggested I ask my neighbors if they have any (weird). Or, she could write down my credit card number on a piece of paper (sorry, no way). My bill was $25 and I wasn't going to tip her $10, so I emptied my change purse to give her a couple of bucks. I hated doing that, I like to tip well! But not 40% and for a spilled drink.

Delivery time is wonderful..got my food before the estimate time of arrival.. good is really good.

I ordered from this place on Eat24. It said it was 1.89 miles away from my house and that they charged $1 for delivery. About 10 minutes after I ordered, I got a text saying that the restaurant was busy so it was going to take a bit longer to make it. A little over 15 minutes after I ordered, I got a call from Eat24 saying that the restaurant wanted to change the delivery fee to $4. WTF?!? Why would they try and charge me extra delivery charge when it was less than 2 miles from my house, they had $1 delivery listed and I had already placed my order? AND after I got a text saying it was going to take longer? I was told by the Eat24 person that I would either have to pay the extra delivery charge or my order would be canceled. Seriously?And this call came at almost 9pm which is the cut off time for most restaurants so it was to late for me to order from anywhere else. I stated all of the above and the rep said he would call back the restaurant to see if they would honor what was posted. Apparently they didn't since I got an email saying my order was canceled around 10 minutes later. How horribly unprofessional of this restaurant when I paid what they posted for the charge and they canceled my order over $3 that was their mistake. Will never order from this place again.

Don't let the interior design of this place fool you. It's Horrible service and food was not great at all, this is not authentic Thai food at all. They have a B rating FYI. when you walk into the restroom there's a strong odor of urine, so disgusting. Server brought out cold food and gives attitude because we want hot, Food is supposed to be hot. Seems like the literally threw something together really quick. rude server and unfriendly, I don't recommend not one bit. Will never return. stay away from this joint

My second Thai food experience and I have to say, I'm getting increasingly impressed by this branch of Asian cuisine. I tried different menu items from the ones I tried in the last Thai restaurant I went to, and I was not disappointed. Restaurant: it's small and quaint, with gentle, romantic indoor lighting. It has a small, shaded outdoor seating area, too. The restaurant was clean and smelled amazing (probably because of all the wonderful smells wafting out to us from the kitchen lol). Service: They have high customer turnover so it's brisk, but still polite. Food: I ordered the chicken fried rice and the duck yellow curry with white rice. Both meals were fantastic. The yellow curry is made with coconut milk so it's creamy, with a good balance of sweet and flavorful. The duck was shredded inside the curry and tasted delicious on its own. The fried rice was delicious too, but I have a feeling the 'spicy fried rice' would've been a better option for me. I will be trying that next time, and yes, there WILL be a next time! Thai iced coffee with boba: A delicious Thai bubble tea with fresh tapioca pearls inside. It was lovely and refreshing. I recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a 'home-cooked meal', comfort food experience!

Nice Thai food...very good service...very comfortable and enjoyable sure

The Vegan Pineapple Tofu Fried Rice was so good! Recommend 10000% They have a good vegan selection. Really friendly environment. Will definitely go back.

Ron Lopez

I have ordered take out food from here. Both times my order was right and the food is delicious. Only downfall is parking. They do have valet. If your picking up orders the valet will let you park quick to pick up your order.

Inexpensive, but small in quantity, the sticky rice is HARD.

Bianca Napoles

DELICIOUS Thai food!! Their "Drunken Noodles" and "Spicy Rice" is AWESOME!! Perfect amount of spice (not too much, not too little), and perfectly moist. I've tried these dishes at other Thai restaurants and they can be pretty dry. Oh, and the Shrimp Tempura, SO EFFING GOOD!!! The only issue is ordering chicken with your dishes. It was disturbingly tender. Like "it shouldn't be THAT tender" kind of tender, if you get my drift. Get beef, play it safe.

Suna H.

Terrible joint!!! Don't do it to yourself - you deserve better!! Placed an order for pick up - it came with NO FLATWARE, one mere napkin, NO SAUCES. The order itself was not taken care of - I made a couple of adjustments, but had to eat their standard anyways.. EXTREMELY DISRESPECTFUL !!!!!

MY wife and I came to eat here and were racially profiled. As we entered the restaurant and asked to use the restroom the woman replied NO only for customers . Then MY wife says but we're here to eat and she THEN says GO. We left right after we used the restroom because we felt uncomfortable and the employees had no manners and were like robots the place was empty anyhow SO in sure the food wasn't worth OUR time goodluck !

Mahlen Morris

It's cool that they have a wide variety of vegan offerings, and they're pretty decent. We had a couple issues with our vegetables being not thoroughly cooked, and it's not thrilling. But the brown rice was quite good, and you won't leave hungry.
