Recs for Thai in Santa Monica (or nearby)

A friend is visiting from Boulder next week and is craving good Thai food. Since I don't know much about Thai cuisine or where to go locally, I figured I'd ask here for recommendations! Thanks.

      Big fan of the duck curry at Thai Dishes

    2. Toi on Wilshire around 10th street. Fun atmosphere, and some of the better Thai on the West Side.

      1. What happened to Orchid? anyone know?

        1. Tuk Tuk on Pico. Poom on Lincoln.

            i agree with mandelabra and disagree with the other posts above about good thai.

          2. What about Chan Dara on Pico?

            epop - why do you like/dislike some of the restaurants?

            Oh, and my out-of-town friend will have her little one with her, so it needs to be stroller/kid friendly.

                thai dishes is only ok. you can try it. but Poom is better. yangtse is also fine if on promenade, actually. but not a thai restaurant. same for toi. i'd go to lincoln unless convenience is the priority. strollers ok.
