Pan-fried Noodles AHOY!

Without a doubt, the best Pan-fried noodles in the City of Los angeles. BYO X ( if B= beer, and W= wine, then solve for X). The service was usually decent when I went, But for a fun time .Good place to eat late at night, The food is tasty, a bit too greasy for my taste but tasty.As I said, perfect place to have a late night meal or take out.

Friendly staff! Great decor

I'm big on ambience so I like this place. Nice modern chic decor. What I love best is that the staff is so friendly! Thai food is good. A tad on the weak side on the robust flavor scale. Seating is always prompt as is the service. Dishes range from $8-$12, so not bad. Being a night owl I love the late hours!

THE BEST THAI EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER HAD

I just left LA. and I had the opportunity to eat at Tawanna Thai Restaurant. It is a very simple restaurant, but it is always busy. I happen to come across it because I was staying at the Marriott in Downtown LA. It happened to be surrounded by several thai restaurants, but I chose this one. The food and the service was so good. I have to recommend the tom yum soup, it is so good. It is the first time I have had it and it is REALLY FILLING. I would also recommend the silver noodle salad. If you like spicy authentic thai food, you must try Tawanna Thai.

Fantastic flavors, nice ambience, friendly but English challenged service

I've eaten here three times; two take out and one dine in. All three times were extraordinarily good. I don't remember all the dishes I've had there, but the basil duck, panang curry and mussamun curry are all fabulous. The duck was juicy, the panang had just enough tanginess, and the mussamun had a poetic indulgence of peanuts. I am really annoyed that they charge you for rice, but the prices are pretty reasonable, and the tastes are fabulous, so I'll let it go. The service is friendly but lacks a bit on the English front. I haven't had an order screwed up yet though. Bottom line: go here for really fabulous thai food in a nice relaxed atmosphere.

I love you,Tawanna Thai

My mother was Thai, and a foodie, too. I grew up eating VERY good Thai food here, and in Thailand. Although I gamely try the Thai restaurants in LA, I usually don't bother returning. Tawanna Thai is a totally different story. Tawanna Thai dishes out the home foods, without fuss and without distraction. This is authentic-tasting, and very well-priced. My favorites: som tum, and chicken fried rice. Mmm...

Trendy Thai place in the clement, Recommended!!!

perfect place for a date... great food, great prices and great service!!! i know this perk of being able to go to an amazing restaurant without needing a reservation and being able to just walk in won't last. it's nice, comfortable, and unpretentious. i know it's a matter of time before people find out about this little gem... the first time i tried the restaurant, i was so impressed with the menu. the prices are really reasonable for the creativity and quantity of food you get. the curry were awesome and so was the duck salad. Highly recommended as one of the best Thai restaurant in the city!!!

tasty food

I had lunch there with my friends on Monday. This lady (with braces) doesn't understand what we tried to order. She also had an attitude. It would be nice if you could find a waitress who can speak English. I gave 5 stars for excellent food.

Best Thai Food in LA

As soon as you arrive the staff greets with you a hello and quickly begins setting up your table even on their busiest nights I've only had to wait for a few minutes. The spicy angel wings are best in town, a little messy but totally worth it. Also, ask about the recommendations or favorite dishes that's how I discovered the green papaya salad and korea bbq. Both scrumptious and other favorites include the yellow curry followed by anything from the wok and topped off with S&S sauce. It's all about sweet and spicy at this place and I was surprised at the good selection of wine they had to compliment the food. I've taken several friends and family members to this restaurant and they all walk away loving it and looking forward to their next visit

Best Thai Restaurant in Town

Have to give Tawana ThaiThai a full 10. I remember when I went there the first time, I felt very authentic from the decor and the food. The space is a bit crowded, but the food definitely makes up for it. I have known the couple who own the restaurant for many years. They are very nice people. All in all, all stars are aligned for the excellence of this restaurant.

If I had to choose just one Thai place for the rest of my life

I've been living in Loa Angeles for 6 years and I daresay Tawanna Thai Thai is one the best Thai cuisine restaurant in the LA Area. To start off, their satay are incredibly delicious that it made my cousins come all over from BK just to get dibs on those wings. Also, the prawn silver noodle that they serve is fabulous. The noodle is so soft and smells so good. Another memorable dish is the dessert that they have, the sweet rice /mango. so simple yet superb and you can add ice cream on top of it. The list can go on and on but I highly recommend anyone who is craving for a Thai food, pick this one out. The place can get crowded sometimes and you might have to wait due to the small size of the restaurant. But I still think it worths the taste

tawanna tawanna WOOOW!!!!

SOOOO much FUN!!! my firends and I were there this past weekend and had such a great time! I've been to restaurant a bunch of places and been to a lot of the thai restaurant including tuk tuk, but I think tawanna thai is my new favorite. It was a little crowded, but that just goes to show you how popular it is. The atmosphere were so great and has a bunch of different mixes clocktail. I'm so bummed cause I just found out that I missed alot of great dishes like Pad Thai I heard it was good. Are you kidding me?!

Fabulous pub/restaurant

This is a great place to go during the weekday and the weekend for dinner, when it's not too crowded and there's a more intimate feel to the place. I went for dinner one night and it was pretty busy, but it was the perfect atmosphere my girlfriend & I were looking for to enjoy a quiet drink with each other. Service was friendly and prompt, and the interior is absolutely gorgeous. Definitely would go back again.

Thumbs up!

This is my vote for best Thai restaurant in the city. The head chef Pai is charming and the food quality and presentation is both pleasant and memorable. I always have a good time here with friends. The appetizers are actually some of my favorites bar none. The ginger fish and stuffed basil eggplant are always on my must have list. These days I am partial to the yellow curry dinner. Thumbs up!

unique Thai cuisine

I definitely will recommend Tawanna thai to anyone that wants to try . It was one of the best Thai restaurants I've ever tried in the city. One of my favorite appetizer was the korea bbg and the papaya salad..yum! It is not those order me Pad Thai type of restaurants...it is a different atmosphere you can dine with your partner, friends or family. Chef Pai is the greatest and puts all her effort in all her dishes she presents out to each table

Best thai we ever had

Every time we are visiting LA we make sure to have a meal at this little lovely restaurant. The food there is realy outstanding. The combinations of flavors are amasing. The presentation of the dishes is very tastfull, the service is attentive and friendly and the ambiance is simple but cozy. We always have great and relaxing time at Jiltada. If I lived in LA I'd go there at least once a week. Very effordable and very delicious.
