Since moving to LA 3years ago, we probably go to Tawanna Thai once every two weeks. It is AWESOME. Everything on the menu is great - we particularly like the papaya salad, chicken satays, roasted duck, and hot basil dishes. :)
I have been living in LA for five years and was looking for an awesome Thai restaurant until just recently when I found this place!! The food is by far the best and they offer fast delivery and takeout which makes this place truly a gem. I recommend any of the curry dishes (the curry duck is alittle too spicy for me), and the Drunken Noodle dish is to die for. Standards like Pad Thai, spring rolls, tempura are above par as well. Prices are alittle more expensive than some other places that say they serve authentic Thai, but very worth spending an extra couple of bucks
I really like Thai food. Good Thai food. It seems like that is the food of choice for the last couple of years and Thai restaurants are springing up in practically every strip mall all over the US. The Tawanna Thai should NOT, repeat, NOT be lumped in with those restaurants. The service here was excellent (I don't think my water glass fell below about an inch from the top the whole time I was there) we were seated promptly and courteously and the wait staff was excellent. My partner had the Pad Thai (no other way to judge a Thai restaurant in our opinion) and I had the Thai fried rice with beef. Both were excellent, as was the fresh spring roll we had for an appetizer. The only warning I would give you is if you're not able to handle a little spice / heat, then be sure to order your dish mild.

We were totally impressed with the freshness of the food together with the brilliant use of spices and sauces. It was clear to us that the food is not only infused with love, but also with real culinary know-how. An added bonus was the great conversation we had with Syerra, who advised us not only on food choices, but also on our future fortunes. A great evening overall!

When I lived in LA, I used to go to Tawanna Thai once a week. Either eat in or take out. The staff is wonderful (Nit is so sweet), they remember me even thought I have moved away and only go when I am in town (it is the only place I HAVE to go to when I return to LA. The Tom Yum Chicken Soup is to die for; I haven't found any better in my new home of Ohio. and beleive me I have tried. For me it is the one I measure all other Thai restaurants against.
If you're looking for a cozy cuisine, THIS IS IT!! I love their new renovation, very nice atmosphere. Pad Thai noodle was tasty, very soft noodle. I can tell that they select only the best quality ingredients 'cause I can taste it.
Tawanna Thai one of my favorite LA restaurants. The food is always good and the specials are a GREAT VALUE. Try ginger fish and the crab rangoon with sweet&sour sauce . Delicious. I've only had good meals here and the servers are polite and attentive.
Nice atmoshpere I really like the red color schem. The food was well deserve a good rating and was done in a timely manner. I really like the cocktails that are all available and they really compliment the food. Very well all around.
If you like Thai food, this is the best place in town.The food here is unbeliveable. My wife and I love the ambience, and the service was amazing. Overall a great experience.
I heard great reviews about Tawanna Thai from a friend who eats here every week. When we finally went there, we could tell they would treat us with great care. We were right. Service was superb. Food was also prepared in such great care that we see it on the plate (presentation-wise) and taste it: , Pad Thai, Duck salad, Shu mai, Salmon sensation were awesome. A warning: don't go here when you're in a hurry. Great foods take time to prepare, and they really prepare their food with lots of TLC. So, be prepared to have more time to relax and enjoy there drink menu while you dinner here.
YOU WILL HAVE THE BEST TIME EVER, THE LIGHTING, THE MUSIC, THE SOUND. EVERYTHING IS GEARED UP TO MAKE YOUR EXPERIENCE THERE THE MOST AMAZING EVER.
Tawanna Thai is absolutely amazing. They have great service and fabulous food. The servers are very friendly and i always get great service. Everything that i've tried on the menu is awesome and my favorite dish is the Papaya salad with Soft shellcrab you may not find in the menu but you can ask the server their,
they'll highly recommend this dish to you. And all so don't miss out the clocktails their are amazing. i love my clocktail storng so asked and it came soo fancy it was Ruby of siam and my wife has Blue Hawaiian.
i'm highly recommend to everyone that love thai food and clocktails this is it. Tawanna Thai
This place has been a long-time favorite of my husband and I. The food is wonderful -something for every palate. The atmosphere is exotic, elegant and easy all at once. The service is very courteous.
I went here just the other day, and just the place surprised me. I saw on the walls that it was chosen best thai food in SF by Citysearch. It wasn't a small, stinky, germy place. It was designed so that you felt like you were in a hut. The thai ice tea is very sweet. Pad thai is nice and refreshing, while at the same time is tasty. I think that the waitress was a little bit slow, but the food came in about 10 mins. It's inexpensive, and all comes together as a nice dinner and lunch place.Very good service too!...
I have eaten at many Thai restaurants. I can honestly say Tawanna Thai has the best Thai food I have ever eaten. On top of that, this place has won more awards worldwide than any Thai restaurant I know of, including an award specifically for Pad Thai, which was won in Thailand!!!!!!! Anytime I think about going out for Asian cuisine, my first thought is here. The only time I WONT eat here is when I've had it the night before! Two thumbs up

If you visit LA often or live here you would know about the Tawanna thai. When you walk in you are treated like family everyone greets your arrival and makes the entire lunch or dinning experience very relaxed and not rushed. The food served is an excellent value and if you have a special request all you have to do is ask and if possible they will prepare your request. The resturant interior is unique you feel you have entered a hidden dinning experience from the walls which looks like the resturant was carved into a rock mountain to the Thai artwork. Even the wine choices are a delite if it a must place to dine and have your pallet pleased

I have been to many Thai restaurants around the world and I accidentally found this one while driving on Wilshire Blvd. I decided to try it and have been going there with my girlfriend for 2 years now. I love Thai food and been to Thai restaurants in many cities throughout the world. this one is truly the best one I have been to. And on top of all it is very inexpensive and very clean. The menu is very extensive and the portions are very big. The only con may be that the service can be a little faster but that is rarely a problem. I highly recommend it.

There's lots of Thai food restaurants in Los Angeles...and yes, some of the places do have good food. But tawanna thai deserves to be in a league of their own and they're far from being a hole-in-the-wall (though there are some good ones in LA) I've been dining 4 for 10 years. The food was just as good as it's ever been, the menu consists of Thai classics as well as several other creative dishes & Entree's, the service was OUTSTANDING . There's not too many places in LA were you can get great Thai Food, great service, a full bar, with nice decor & atmosphare, good strong cocktails too. If you want a Thai place that is a little classier than your average Thai restaurants, give them a try.
