Los Feliz regulars swear by this low key spot for reliable Thai food without any fuss..
While it may not score points as a date night destination, this no-frills Thai standby offers a traditional menu served in a pleasant-enough atmosphere. The small dining area fits about 10 tables and booths, with clean, simple décor consisting of tile floors, pale yellow walls with white trim and the occassional splash of Eastern-inspired décor. A flat screen TV perched in the corner keeps things ultra casual. While the dining room never seems to be full (points for being hassle-free), the restaurant does a steady takeout and delivery business. The menu features all of the Thai standards (more than 60 items) including soups, noodle dishes, curries, seafood and Thai barbecue dishes. For dessert, there's coconut ice cream, fried bananas and sticky rice with mango. Bonus: Most entrees are under ten bucks, just add a dollar or two for seafood dishes.
Try to ignore the blaring TELEVISION. This is our first choice for Thai food. It is so tasty and beautifully served. It is never crowded inside. I would say it is the epitome of Shabby-Chic Thai, since the food is so classy but the exterior of the building implies plastic plates and utensils. My one complaint is: WHAT IS THE DEAL WITH THE TELEVISION?! They have this gigantic flat screen tv on all the time - for what? It's not a sports bar, it doesn't have any theme nights that would involve a television, no karaoke. It really detracts from the experience. It would be the perfect Thai gem if only there wasn't a big oafish TV muscling in on my dinner.
Good food, TERRIBLE customer service. The food is good. It's one of the best cheap Thai restaurants in the area. It looks like a hole-in-a-wall from the outside, but the inside looks nice and clean. The ONLY problem overall is the service. It is TERRIBLE because ofthen times, there's only one waitress working. She's also in charge of the orders made over the phone. Hence, the attitude. Even when the place is not packed, her attitude remains the same. You will not feel welcome here. My friends and I appreciate the food a lot and has eaten here more than four times. Unfortunately, 3 out of 4 times that we've eaten here, we got the same waitress, and after every meal we didn't feel like coming back. Today was the last time we're going back to that place. Their food will be truly missed.
Don't Let the Cliched Name Fool You!. I have been a fan of Thai food for decades. When I moved into the Los Feliz area, I needed to find a neighborhood restaurant to replace my old favorite. Thank my luck stars -- I stumbled onto Tub Tim Siam! Great tasting food. Unbeatable lunch and dinner specials. Free delivery (in the area only and not at peak times). Friendly and knowlegeable staff. Wines & beers are served, along with a great Thai iced tea. Since I'm usually eating with others, it is especially helpful that you can ask the chef to modify the "fire" of the seasonings to match a diner's taste buds! And don't forget to try the lip-smacking coconut-pineapple sherbert!
A Surprise. This place has really eaceptional food. You probably wouldn't think that to see the exterior but don't let that stop you. My persoanl favorites are the green curry, really delicious. the noodle dishes are awesome as well.
Good Thai restaurant with great service. This place is awesome. The food's great, affordable, very authentic, very FAST service and the staff's very friendly. My favorite dishes are: Garlic chicken, Curry dishes, and of course, Pad Thai.
A hidden gem in Los Feliz. This is a hidden gem and we don't want it to go away! My girlfriend and I drive across town jus to eat at this delicious place! They have the BEST Thai food at very reasonable prices. I think the chicken dishes are all white meat. The outside doesnt look like much but the staff are attentive and the food is outstanding! They have a dinner special for the financially challenged that is excellent! Huge drink glasses and only a few blocks from "Home" Restaurant.
Tub Tim Good Thai!. Good basic Thai food in Los Feliz! No suprises, just well done classic thai dishes at affordable prices. Nice low key dining room, and a lovely and attentive wait staff.
