 A cash-only, hidden gem in East Hollywood serves up authentic versions of traditional, Laotian, and Chinese-influenced Thai cuisine. The décor is typical of hole-in-the-wall eateries in LA, but it's easy to forget that the venue is in a strip mall parking lot after savoring the first bite. Service is friendly and prompt, and there's never a wait for a table.
