Tawanna thai blends a very laid-back, chill atmosphere with food so good you'll forget you're dining in the LA. It's not fusion, but more of a modern take on traditional Thai--slightly upscale, but reasonably priced. Highlights include the korea bbg, thinkly sliced steak with a tangy citrus sauce, the bbg pork chop and the roast duck. Other standard Thai fare such as curries, coconut curry soups, vegetarian dishes and seafood are also quite good. Ask for the coconut rice with your meal; as odd as it sounds it's exceptional. Tawanna thai also features a full bar, lunch specials and happy hour drink and food specials. . GREAT
the cocktails were awesome and the food was delicious. Definitely recommend for both the food and the excellent service. I went to this restaurant because of it's high reviews. The reviews were correct.

The atmosphere was intimate without being stuffy and it was great to sit , The service was excellent and attentive and I even made it a point to thank the owner for the great service. It's a good place to go with a few friends and have a good time, or to take a date for an relaxed but intimate dinner. Although it's not a very big restaurant, the environment is very quiet, pretty, and dim. The food is also very tasty. It's one of the best thai foods I've tasted. It's a perfect place to go eat out with your boyfriend or girlfriend and family as well. highly recommend to anyone
The place has a very cool environment and neat stuff to look at inside.The first item we had were Pad Thai Noodles. It was very good.and the fish dishes are awesome. i'd definitely recommend it.
This is, simply, one of, if not the best Thai food restaurant in the city. They just recently raised their prices to around a $9 median for an entre, but it still is definitely worth it. Everything here is totally flavorful, the food is fresh and wonderful.... you really cannot go wrong with anything you order here. Try the papaya salad. Its fantastic.
Tawanna Thai is one of my favorite Thai restaurants. The food is excellent, the service is good, and restaurant is nice and cozy. I like how the restaurant provides an extensive menu selection with over 120 different dishes. I loved the ambiance of this place. It was clean, sweet, art was nice, bathrooms were clean, the server staff were well dressed and they had small touches of elegance in unsuspecting places. I would recommend going to this place with a small intimate group if you plan on going family style with the food. Overall, I enjoyed the food and service.
This place is fantastic but it's so tiny . At this point, I was hoping that if the food is as good as the decoration, we'll be having a good night. Wow, the food was amazing. I had the Spicy gingerfish fillet and my girlfriend had the spicy duck salad. The sauce was very tasteful and sophicated. Thanx for a great experience .The bar is a great place to wait for your table. A large list of appetizers and Martinis help pass the time.
went to this place many time. The decor is very nice and clean atmosphere. They have a really good food all the time. Cooktail is great!!! Cool bar!!! . Last time we tried a new special ""Cream Cheese Wontons"". It was so good it call crab rangoon in the menu. I would enthusiastically recommend this restaurant to anyone.
great fussion Thai food, nice decor, nice ambiance in the evenings. This is not your typical thai restaurant. It is a new blend towards a more hipper crowd /target. A food is decorated nicely and it taste is outstanding. Try some of appetizers/ salads. papaya sald a must and curries too.

I'm telling you is the coolest spot for dating. Me and my girlfriend had the best time in tawanna thai it 's so romantic. And one thing i have to share with all of u is greentini you got to try it. It is soo incredible, if you like cooktail you will love what i had experices from tawanna thai. The wait staff so nice and professional, they recommend the best new dish i ever have is Pannang Curry. I'm die for it to go back there again.
My boyfriend and I love the nightlife here and we occasionally dine when we can. This time we found ourselves looking at a whole new menu. I didn't mind either because I like CHANGE people! Anyhow, it was great. I had the papaya salad....to-die-for-delicious My spicy drunken pasta it - ONE of my favorite things in this world (I come next in line). 2 thumbs up! We were happy customers. MESSAGE TO Tawanna thai If you decide to change the menu again, leave the carrot...it makes ""papaya salad happy"" ha
Tawanna, I WANNA!!! Over and over again!!! Great Thai food!!!! The service is pleasant, the place is chic""ily"" quaint and lunch was a party in my mouth!!! The food is genuine, fresh, good quality, nicely presented, perfect portions and a great price. I had the ginger and onion beef and my husband had the orange chicken, excellent. I can't wait to go back and try everything on the menu!!! My husband and I were in the neighborhood looking for an apartment and decided to stop for lunch at Tawanna, are we ever glad we did. This will definitely be one of our regular spots, especially if we move in the neighborhood! Even if we don't! I can't wait to bring my friends!!!
This restaurant is fantastic. My girlfriend and I have come here on several occasions, and have nothing to complain about. The food is superb, the waitstaff quick, knowledgeable and efficient, and the ambience is unparalleled. They even honored my special request to the maitre d for a special dessert palate for our anniversary! I never write these reviews, but I feel like I have to say something so that all you people looking for a hot spot to go on a date will not be deterred by these snooty, I like this place better than that ""tuk tuk thai "" whatever place is....people look good and and loved the music and the atmosphere. I will be returning to this place a lot,
To be honest the atmosphere was better some years ago . The waitress was very nice, knowledgeble and polite explaining everything in the menu. For our main course we had Roasted Duck noodle and Korea BBQ.... Oh my God that was so good. The drinks are a bit pricey, but there is a warm, stylish ambience with the brick walls and mellow lighting. Its a great place to meet a friend for a relaxing drink after work. I had a GREAT time @ tawanna thai . And I will be back very soon.

My friends took me out to LA for thai food and it was so worth the trip. I am in i always make a point to eat at the recommended Thai eateries.I glad i was recommended to try tawanna thai ch satay, tomyum shrimp was so delicious. The pad thai was as good as any I have had and generous in portion size. You can enjoy some delicious food guilt-free, bring your friends and have a good old time.

This is by far the best Thai food I've ever had (and I eat a LOT of Thai food!). My family and I go here once a week, always order the same things but the owner usually makes us one or two dishes of his creation. He is an amazing cook. My favorite is the Shrimp Supreme appetizer, any of the currys, and the phad thai. Everyone who eats chicken loves the Thai Chicken. I can't say enough about this restaurant--just go!
and good for night life too''''

I work across the street from Tawanna, so I have eaten there many times. It is one of the better lunch spots in the area. My favorite dish is the spicy drunkard pasta -- very spicy and very delicious. Their curries and entrees are also very good. They have lunch specials, but the lunch special portions are a bit on the small side. I recommend ordering take-out from Tawanna instead of eating there; the restaurant is very small and if you eat there, you will be elbow-to elbow with some stranger, with the server bumping your chair every time she walks by.
