    Why are you yelling?

      http://www.ayarathaicuisine.com/ will fill your west side hunt for boat noodles. Although to stay on the west side and then complain there is no good Thai food is like staying on the west side and complaining there is no great Chinese food. You need to go to Thai town in Hollywood for good Thai food. Jitlada or Sapp Coffee shop (for boat noodles). And I wonder if you could please unlock your caps key? All upper case is considered shouting. Thanks.

        Jitlada has good Boat Noodles? Wow, I will have to try them.

        My go to place is P-Ord Noodle on Sunset. The person from the original Ord Noodle. They specialize in Boat Noodles and also have good Tom Yum Noodles.

        I've been to Thailand and the people are extremely nice and friendly. They would probably frown on somebody "yelling" when asking a question about "boat noodles". AND just because a place doesn't have good Boat Noodles, it doesn't mean it is a bad Thai restaurant. People specialize in thing. Plus, I love Boat Noodles but I bet it isn't an item most Americans are clamoring for. That is why you have to go where the Thai people live. Same reason I don't eat Pho on the Westside.

          "Jitlada has good Boat Noodles? Wow, I will have to try them."

          The inclusion of Jitlada in my reply to the OP was based on their generalized complaint of no really good Thai food on the west side (rather than to recommend it for boat noodles specifically) and to point them in the direction of Thai town for good Thai food in general.

            Well, if you are looking for good Thai food, Jitlada is my #1 recommendation. Especially if you are looking for something beyond Pad Thai or the usual stir fries. If you are looking for something "funky", I think Ruen Pair is a good choice. I have no idea if they have Boat Noodles though.

              Just want to point out that my specific comment about Jitlada -

              "You need to go to Thai town in Hollywood for good Thai food. Jitlada or Sapp Coffee shop (for boat noodles)."

              - was to recommend them for good Thai food in general. I put in parens the specific adder for Sapp about boat noodles to differentiate them from Jitlada. Hope that is/was clear now?
