Best Pad Thai Noodles?

Pineapple099 Dec 3, 2008 02:04 PM

I miss Chao Praya Thai in Hollywood on Yucca and the valley location closed too.
They had the BEST THAI BBQ Chicken and Pad Thai Noodles EVER!
Do you have a favorie place for Thai BBQ Chicken and Pad Thai noodles?


I now settle for The Original Thai BBQ in Culver city and also on 3rd & Ardmore.
Chan Dara- Hollywood, and Natalee's in Culver City.

    Chan Dara's always been the benchmark for me.

      For me, Renu Nakorn in Norwalk never disappoints for Pad Thai. Never overly fish-saucy or soggy. Their chicken is at least on par with Original Thai BBQ's chicken.

            Consider trying the Pad Thai at Red Corner Asia on Hollywood in the same plaza as Ruen Pair. I almost never order Pad Thai, but RCA does a very tastey version. Anyone I've mentioned this to has agreed.
