Awesoome Food and Service

I brought my mom to have dinner there last night. We had Prig King. It's $12.95 including ,appetizer, cocktails (happy hour). It's very good deal! We both had Tom Yum Shrimp soup and Dumpling as appetizer. I tried Pad Thai with Shrimp and my mom had Chicken Basil sauce. We had coconut rice c and sticky with mango as dessert to share. I just want to say it's perfect! Also, the service is very attentive and fast. Waitresses are very helpful and friendly. My mom was very happy and she would recommend her friends to visit Tawanna thai when they're comming to the LA City. I would to go back again soon next week before my broadway show. See you soon, Tawanna thai

Excellent cuisine/resonable price

I had a good experience in this restaurant. One waitress, probably the same person some people mentioned in here, may be some syerra. But when I asked some questions about menu, she is the one who knows everything. Food was great. I think the price is average. This time I went in my lunch time, and I definitely go back for dinner with my family

no way

i have no idea how this restaurant made it to second place on best of citysearch. i love thai food, but this place is way, way, way overrated! our waitress had an attitude, didn't smile, didn't try to have eye contact with us. she was just blah, and monotone all night. we were the only people in the restaurant, but still they didn't manage to bring out the appetizers before the main course. so by the time we were done with the appetizers, our main course was closer to cold than to hot. before we finished eating our entrees, the waitress came over to our table asked if everything was ok, and pretty much slammed to check on our table....well great experience, never again!!! thank you. the dishes were ok, weren't anything spectacular though.

Wonderful Thai Restaurant with Exotic atmosphere

I discovered Tawanna Thai a couple of months ago and now it is my preferred spot for great, cheap thai food. Classy enough to bring a date, but cheap enough to go every week for a quick bite. The mango sticky rice is particularly amazing! The Thai Green Chicken Curry is also excellent. Highly recommended!

BEST OF THE BEST THAI FOOD!!!!!!

The very first time I had gone was for a GIRLS AFTERNOON, and I haven't stopped going since! Everyone I have turned on to it, has gone back! I would definitely reccommend you trying it at least once! Great place for an intimate date. The seating is close together but the atmosphere that it creates makes the experience all worth while. NO WAIT, JUST GREAT!!

Fan-thai-tastic

What can I say except about this cute little place other than it is absolutely charming and has fan-thai-stic food.
I had the sweet and sour chicken with a little kick of spice and thoroughly enjoyed it. The cheese rolls were sublime and I had the best glass of unsweet (sorry, from the north here

Pretty bad

I went here recently and had terrible service. Requested for things to be made that are on their online menu and was told that ""it was for lunch and takeout orders only."" What is the difference between putting my food on a real plate versus in a to go box? Come on. The food was alright but the next day I felt so nauseaus. Probably msg. Pretty terrible feeling and felt so sick all day. My friend got a soup and it was literally chicken stock, could have made it at home. Two entrees were brought out way before the other two and they started clearing half the table while my friend was still eating. I will not be back!

Great Thai food

This thai spot was pretty good...a trendy little spot with a cool bar. Not too many places in LA are as good as this...Club Sushi is its only rival!

A Curious Case.

It looks like this place has been reviewed by people who registered for an account just to review this place.
95% of the reviews are from one-timers. I visited the place a few times and it was empty which is kind of weird for a place that get reviewed almost every other day. Citysearch should check this out!

Hmmm!! Curious.

The Heart Of Los Angeles

This is where my partner of 4 years and I went on our first date. We have been back dozens of times since. The food, alcoholic beverages, and atmosphere are pleasant and modern. Located in the heart of the Los Angeles, it is the perfect place to let down with friends or bring that special someone. The bo luc lac has always been one of my favorites. The BBQ chicken is great for spice. Sping rolls are always above average - I recommend the shrimp rolls. The sherry martini will make you want to head straight to Los Angeles in CAL. Tawanna Thai, you are a dream!

friendly, nice atmosphere, new restaurant space, parking, super food

I started out with the Lychi Martini which was FABULOUS. The food also was great. Drunked Pastas and the sauce was decadent. The steamed fish was very nice as well, although not quite as much flavor. The servers were helpful friendly and on top of things. I've been here quite a few times and am always pleased with the food and service.

Innovative food

This was probably the best restaurant in LA, let alone the entire country. Hands down. Whether it be biz or pleasure, this wonderful dining experience is sure to WOW your client .This is the second time I went. First time was a charm, and I feel that standard has dropped since 6 months ago. But, it's still quite an experience and better than most restaurants.

This is our new FAVORITE restaurant!

We went to this restaurant on Valentines Day. The food was wonderful! Even with all that was going on the owner herself seated us and spent a few moments answering some questions we had. Because of our dietary requirements (and I?m picky) we asked that some of the items be cooked differently than the ?traditional? way. As the waiter went to ask the owner (all I was thinking was? oh boy here it comes) and to our surprise she said ?sure, no problem.? Without even thinking about it! Anyone who has allergies or can?t eat certain things knows that most of the time the response isn?t quite as friendly... LOL!!!

Very Thai

this is a place that has authentic thai dishes and are truly tasty. Most people havent had authentic and this place is outstanding. It beats all the penny noodles shops in the city. Try the chicken basil and see what happens

Top quality, reasonable prices

There are a few Thai places that serve top quality food at reasonable prices, and this is one of them. Consistently excellent food, solid service, great for takeout too. We use them when we have lots of guests .
Our favorites are the yellow curry with chicken, and the crying tiger . the restaurant itself is tiny, though we've never had a problem getting a seat for dinner. Have fun and enjoy!
