pad not-so-thai

i think the high ratings are probably more backed by the aesthetic impression the place leaves on the patrons - strip away the music, the posters, the cool props, and the ratings would likely dip. the food is just not all that great or authentic - though, i guess, they are saved by the sign in the window: ""thai-american food."" there must be a reason why they're open until 3 a.m.; i'm guessing they're catering to all those sunset blvd.-loiterers after a night of rambunctious ""partying."" and we all know how ""partying"" affects the tastebuds - it leaves them absolutely helpless to any and all cuisines - half-baked thai food included.

The Best after 2AM (or any other time)

This is American Thai at its finest, more flavors rather than overblown spice... their Thai Iced Tea is to die for, the Tom Yum Goong is superb and the best dish of all ""Crab Fried Rice"" is orgasmic... I have taken every tourist visiting town there and they loved it. Rock and Roll atmosphere without the Hollywood attitude, the servers are friendly and look nice too. If you have $30 for a dinner date this is the place to go to, it does not hurt that they are open until 4AM everyday.

Good vibes and no MSG

Cool wait staff, music is always great and best of all, this place (and all the other TOIs ) DON'T use any MSG. I know for a fact that most others in Thai Town definitely USE MSG.

don't go Toi !!

Exceptioanlly mediocre! Why go to a place like this with Palms Thai, Ruen Pair, and Sanamluang right down the street? The Toi Thai in Santa Monica is equally bad. I will never go back to either one.

Excellent Pad Thai !!!

This is a not so ordinary thai place, cause it has a rock and roll feel to it, which doesn't make you feel like you're in china or thailand (like most other thai places). Highly recommend the pad thai with shrimp. Get the fried bananas for starters, really good. Its open till 3-4am, so usually go there after clubbin on the weekend.

Declining?

The first time I went here, I was impressed. But the charm wore off. I've since been at least two more times, and the Pad See Eew I ordered grew progressively more flavorless each time. I'm not sure why I kept ordering it, or--better question--why I kept going back. The atmosphere is cool, I guess.

Wok and Woll!

This place has terrific food! My friend and I went there recently and felt like we were in the Rainbow.
There were rock 'n roll people everywhere-and some stars too! For food we had delicious coconut chicken soup and lightly battered chicken with a lemon dip[ping sauce. This is a great place to have dinner if you are looking for good food at a decent price! If you like to listen to music while you eat, this is the place for you!

Rock n Roll Thai Food

This well known hang out of the Red Hot Chili Peppers has a fascinating collection of rock n' roll memorabilia. Oh, and the Thai food is pretty nice too.

Late Night Americanized Thai

Toi has consistently been one of L.A.'s best late night dining options, and one of the few that offers ethnic food (well, sort of) rather than coffee shop fare. No, it's not really authentic Thai -- but it is good and it's open late. The crowd is fun, especially from the midnight to 4am stretch.

I recommend the Bangkok Delight, a sweet red curry mix highlighted by shrimp and pineapples. Order it with the brown rice -- Toi's specialty. The combination is amazing. Everything else on the menu is wonderful as well.

However, if you have any palette for wine at all, skip it. My Pinot Grigio was strangely bubbly and too fruit forward.
