        I have to say that Tep Thai is probably my least favorite in all of Glendale (also prices have gone up (way up according to a friend who loves it) since they renovated and they don't have lunch specials (what self-respecting Thai restaurant does not offer lunch specials??!!). I think they take themselves too seriously.
        Personally, my favorite in Glendale is Thai in LA on Brand (chicken w/mint leaf chile, pad thai, Ran Nar) and I also like the Original Thai BBQ on Glendale Blvd. (Ribs, chicken, pad thai).
        Stay away from that Thai place on Verdugo south of Broadway (in the back corner of a strip mall, if still there) they tell you you have not paid when you already have.

          I second Thai in LA on Brand, good prices, lots of food!

            And I third Thai in LA - have been going there for years & years - Always pretty consistently good! Things that are favorites: chicken satay, and of course, the chicken with mint & chile.

            I believe that place is/was called Indra Thai. Used to eat there back in the day, 10+ yrs ago for the cheap dinner specials (all you can eat??). Seemed ok for the money, but I was a starving student back then.

        2. - 5 years ago, tep was a twice-weekly lunch place for us. now, we wait for someone with an expense account. still pretty good.
          - kozy corner is 2 doors west of tep on wilson, lower price, and pretty ok. sold [last year?], repainted. maybe a dozen seats, hard surfaces, so a lone diner on a cellphone can make you run.
          - thai in la [north on brand] is currently in weekly rotation. pretty good. share an expensive hot pot.
          - orig thai bbq is pretty good for the few items below, not enough to stay in weekly list.
          - there are 2 to the south, on fletcher. thai thai is ok, but not worth a long drive.
          - angel thai, north on san fernando road is just common, and very slow.
          - thai spirit is way east on colorado, ok.
          - thai food, west of verdugo, north side of colorado, blue awnings, is pretty good, in weekly lunch rotation, and also has vienamese menu [$5 pho gotta try].
          - have never been to the one below at verdugo/b'way; passed en route to two guys a few times.

          1. If you dont mind driving about 10-15 mins to Pasadena, Saladang has always been a favorite of mine. It's on Fairoaks. It's been around for a while and has always been very popular amongst locals. I would recommend going at off hrs like 2pm-5pm becuase it is always packed! You can wait up to 1.5 hrs for lunch on the weekends. I love their beef penang, catfish filets in spicey sauce, pad thai, and their thai fried rice.

              If you are indeed willing to drive to Pasadena, I would try Chandra. Very good.

            2. I second Saladang (pasadena) as my first choice for Thai. In Glendale, I prefer Tep Thai since Thai In La uses msg.
