Thai in Alhambra
You are referring to Thai World - that place is a no go.
If you want don't want to drive all the way down to Thai Town then I'd suggest giving Thai Paradise a try (review found here: http://www.twohungrypandas.com/2009/0...). Thai Paradise is on Las Tunas in San Gabriel (about 100ft from the Alhambra/SG border).
909 W Las Tunas Dr, San Gabriel, CA 91776
No NO NOOOOOO Neta!
First off, if you're talking about Spice Basil ... they shuttered about 3 months ago.
If you're heading out that way, much better to just spend your money on The Hat and then walk over the Shau Mei and get some Taiwanese Shaved Ice to take the bite off of some of this oppressive heat.
Don't do it, Neta. I think Thai is one of the cuisines that Alhambra just can't nail down. It's a former noodle world, called Thai world. Have no idea if it's the same owners, but it's pretty bad. And having been to Green papaya, Thai Paradaise, and Thai Purple I really can'[t recommend any of them. I think it's worth the effort to drive to Pasadena and go to Saladang or Chandra. I won't state which because that sparks a whole separate thread. :)
