Thai Restaurants with Sticky Rice in Oakland

It's Thai before Thanksgiving and we all like sticky rice. Can anyone recommend a good Thai place that serves sticky rice as a side and not just dessert. Extra points if it's close to Montclair or Piedmont Ave.

        Definitely Champa Garden. From Montclair just head down Park Blvd.

          Yeah I know Champa has sticky rice as well as the divey place near Mills but was hoping to try something new. I love Champa but mainly for their other stuff. We might end up there. Thanks

          Though they have sticky rice it is not Thai.

            Not even a little? The menu suggests there are Thai/Lao versions of several dishes.

              True a little, but they do not do a great job of it in comparison with a fore mentioned Thai joints.

        3. Soi 4, according to their online menu. I'm about to order take-out from here for the first time, so no idea what it is like, though.
