Good Food That Makes You Sleepy; Great for a First Date – We ordered Pad Thai & Green Curry with tofu, warm sake and edamame. The presentation was good, the curry was exquisite and the pad thai was pretty bland. I think this may have been because I asked they not include fish sauce in the pad thai. We put some hot sauce on it, and it was ok. The curry outshone, great presentation, with that spicy bite that doesn't wipe out your palate and large portions. ($7-8.00 per entree)
The bench was a little uncomfortable because the pillows moved whenever I moved, but it looks nice. You also have to ask for the check, or you will never get it.
It was totally empty on a Thursday night- definately great for a date.
just went for the first time... – and have already been twice this week. its a block away from my house, but the instant i walked in i knew it would be my new place. the service is great as well as the food, which is also VERY reasonably priced. and for dinner its quiet and sophisticated inside.
A delicous blend of thai and sushi. Newly discovered and now my favorite place. – A perfect blend of Thai and Japanese. The food was absolutley delicious Located in the heart of hollywood on Sunset Blvd just a block from the 101 FWY. Luckily for me, I stumble upon this cozy gem one day while buying flowers next door. From the window I can see the hollywood sign and my home in the hills. I returned later in the week for dinner and instantly wished I'd brought a date. Candle light presented a warm romantic mood and the place was filled with patrons dining with delight. For thai food I reccomend the Pad Se Ew pan fried noodles with egg and your choice of meat. ( I prefer pork). For Japanese, get the Spider roll or the Catapillar roll and you'll thank me later.
TUNA CRISPY RICE is a MUST! (Good food, cute place, cute waiter, super great price) – We passed by looking for a place to eat after a long day in Hollywood on Saturday. I have to say, the place is very cozy with brown, orange and bash colors. I went at night time and there were candles lit at every table giving a very romatic cute atmosphere with lounge and some Asian music. We get the choose where to be seated by this young stunning looking waitor. I shouldn't go on with that, because I'm supposed to be writing about the food.
I highly recommend their TUNA crispy rice, that thing melts when you put it in your mouth. Pineapple fried rice is which I have. My friend Antonia loved their Tom Kah coconut soup, triple shrimp roll, and THE SUN. The price is also pretty cheap, we end up spending $40-$50 with all the drinks and 5 dishes with some for a doggy bag. Besides, they have one the cleanest bathrooms considering that they're an Asian restaurant, BIG +.
They are small, sweet, cheap, new, and cozy, and I'm coming back.
Editorial Review – Creative Thai and Japanese cuisine prepared fresh and plated beautifully in a cozy and romantic setting.

Best Thai & Japanese foods on Sunset – I love japanese food, special sushi and this restaurant has some sushi that I never eat before at the other place for example Spicy tuna on crispy rice(so good), golden fish(great creative), D.O.C.(dynamic over California roll) and desserts ice cream with fry banana. The place is clean and the services are great.
Yen Yen Cafe – This is the coolest hangout for people in the mood for Thai! Forget the Thai town scene on Hollywood Boulevard . Tucked away in a quiet spot on Sunset Boulevard, you'll eat the sweetest pad-thai in all L.A. The staff is super cool and super nice. For the food or the service you can't beat the price either. Ambience is mellow and uber-hip. Check it out and you'll be pleased...
Yen Yen is Ten Ten in my Book! – Wow! What a cool Sushi joint! I love the chill atmosphere and the sushi is great! I've had sushi everywhere and Yen Yen Definitely has some of the most creative sushi Creations! The "Full Moon Party" and the "Spicy Tuna on Crispy Rice" are my all time Favorites! I noticed the Sign out front and I think it's made out of Cardboard??? Oh yeah! And there sake is amazingly Affordable!!! I would definitely recommend this place to folks that think outside of the bento box! Bon Appetite!!!
