BEST THAI or JAPANESE near Sherman Oaks?
If you really want to stay in Sherman Oaks and don't want to venture up to Sherman Way to all the great Thai places near Coldwater Canyon then try these two places. They are near each other and very good.
Anajak Thai. It's at Cedros and Ventura Blvd.
14704 Ventura Blvd
Phone: (818) 501-4201
4457 Van Nuys Boulevard at Moorpark St
Sherman Oaks, CA. 91405
Not for a date (it's a bit of a hole in the wall) but it is our favorite of all the places on Sherman way of coldwater :
Their Nam Kao Tod (golden rice with spicy pork), Cry Tiger, Plah Goong (spicy shrimp salad), egg noodles with pork (and garlic) and many other dishes are quite excellent.
I would agree for a date Asanebo would be nice for a date.
