Weekday Thai Lunch Buffet-Midtown-West

ChefRoux Apr 27, 2013 12:08 PM

Looking for a decent weekday Thai Lunch Buffet near Midtown or Hollywood.
I used to go to Chao Kruk on Fairfax, but last time I went, no more buffet.

    Lots of Indian lunch buffets, but the only good Thai lunch buffet I know of is Lotus of Siam in Vegas, and there you should order from the menu (unless you are alone, where you want to taste more than one or two dishes). There is a Chinese buffet on Wilshire in Brentwood that chandavki regularly visits, but he claims he needs to gain weight. As far as I know, Emporium Thai on Westwood, the recent board darling associated with Jitlada, doesn't even offer lunch combos, much less a buffet.

      It does not get better than Emporium Thai on the westside.

        Emporium Thai does, indeed, offer lunch combos. While they are a good value, they are not what dining there is really about. Analogous to Lotus of Siam, I suppose.

          I just went to the Emporium Thai website. I clicked on their menu. I see all sorts of categories, but nothing approximating any lunch combos or specials.

            It may not be on their website, but they do offer a separate lunch combo menu.

        Thanks to all for responding. I've just found out that Chao Kruk has resumed their Lunch Buffet Mon-Fri.

          Do you mean Chao Krung? You keep on writing Chao Kruk.
