I go to this restaurant two to three times per week because the food is so good. However, I have just had my last meal at this place. The waitstaff is very rude, I had to ask for something to drink, ask to place my order, get my own napkins and ask to pay my bill. All the while they are drinking wine in the back of the restaurant. When I ask for something simple like water, its like I am causing a huge inconvenience for them. I'm done! There are too many other restaurants that will appreciate my business.

If there was a level below one star I would give this experience a rating three levels below that. The waitress with the long redish hair was unpleasant, unprofessional, and downright indignent. It started when we first came in. She came over threw the menus on the table and walked away. When she finally came back I asked for water and she walked to the corner and talked to another employee then went outside to talk on her cell phone. When she brought the water she asked if I was ready to order in a very negative tone. After my meal came she never came back to check on me. I needed more rice and wanted to order a Mai Tai. She acted like she never heard of the drink and I had finished my meal by the time she came back with it. By the way it was lunch time and there were only two other customers seated. The food was justed ok and the service was terrible. I started not to leave a tip but decided rather to give her 5% mostly in coin to express my dissatisfaction. I will never go back and will make sure I tell everyone I know not to waste their time. Please take this spot off your list as based on the service, they won't be in business much longer.

Been here many times but I think this will be our last! I use to praise them for their drinks but my last experience, well let's just there was a dead fly in my Mai Thai. Food was NOT good at all, vege fried rice & the crab fried rice we ordered were watery & the the basil beef we got had no flavor, and our appetizer, spring roils, was all mush inside! Waitress was rude! It almost seemed like she was rushing us to leave so we don't say anything about the dead fly in the drink! We thought that since there was a dead fky in our drink that they would comp us something, but NOPE, nothing! And as soon as we got in the car and looked at the restaurant we notice they had a "C" rating! Damn should have seem that before we went in and I would have for sure not gone in! Like I said, place WAS good, but not any more!

When I go out to eat, I expect to pay a lot for my meal. I also expect to get a lot of food for that money. I'm a bit of a foodie and only want the best. Well, this place did deliver a great meal that I really enjoyed, only the portion was so small that I left feeling hungry still. The price wasn't worth the meal. However, the ambiance is very nice.

I have been here 10+ times and it never disappoints. They have a fantastic Happy Hour (1/2 off appetizers & drinks) and wonderful cocktails. I always order the Thai Tea Martini and an order of steamed pot stickers... both are hard to beat! My two favorite dishes are their spicy fried rice and pad thai. Their spring rolls are pretty tasty too.

Wife THROWS menus, slams ANYTHING delivered onto table, while customer is SEATED!! She needs to STAY AT HOME, since is NOT cordial or welcoming!!!
Dark haired female and male owner are more hospitable.

There is NO sign or printed material stating purchase MUST be in excess of $10, to use card! So they add charges to make up difference! This is a BB violation!!!

White and Asian customers are extended "Thank you" upon completion of meal. Others are not!!!

Route to RestRoom is blocked by separators disallowing a wheel chair or walker to access Rest Room.

Terrible service and rude staff. Been here 3 times in total one of which was take out and they have been rude every single time. Tried to go for lunch today and give them the benefit of the doubt but this will be the last time I go near this place. The place was empty and they were going to sit us at a table that is practically in the entry to the restaurant. I suggested another 2 person table nearer to the back of the restaurant and they would not allow us saying they might get a big party and they "might" have to use it for that. I said that Wahoos would be happy to have our business and she gave us a dirty look and waved goodbye.

I've had good experiance with Tawanna Thai with elegant restaurant setting and at least more superb food than other thai food nearby.

But last sunday (Mar 21, 2010) I had a horrible experience with a waitress who not only has bad english, but lack of knowledge of the business menus. I had extreme trouble placing order on the phone and I don't think she deserves working there. The owner should fire her before more business got turned away.
Not only she couldn??t find dishes on the menu, but also she told me the rice is free come with the order but later I found I??ve been charged for two rice orders. Whether it is poor English or ignorance attitude, she is just not qualified to be working there. And then I ordered a vegitable soup, which she repeated two times, while eventually it is not on the order. I have to wait 30 minutes at the restaurant for the order to be ready even I already placed it another 30 minutes ago on the phone!!

When I found these problems after taking my dishes back home, I called and she is simply rude and trying to bounce all her problems back to me. Then she gave the phone to a waiter, obviously an attitude of not her problem and not taking responsibility. The waiter also trying to say it is my problem. OMG?since when you think your problem is your customers?? problem just because you don??t want to be responsible for it. (S)he ask me to come back and get another order. Booshit?you wasted my time, destroyed my meal, had me pad additional things I don??t want and without any apology you think I have to straighten it out myself.

He said he can??t refund me the rice I paid which they told me it is free!!!! And I have to call their boss if I want?rather than their boss calling me as a Courtney. Later he said he??ll have his boss call me in an hour. No one called. Either the boss is samely rude or they simply didn??t tell the boss of the matter at all (in which case I??d say poor owner??s business ruined by bad employees).

Now I would suggest citysearch take off your best of citysearch badge. Be careful in treating your customers by showing and doing in different ways. You never know...

And of course I am getting the credit refund for sure.

I ordered lunch to go today. I got back to my office and was not happy that my short ribs were 98% fat and just totally unappetizing. I ordered this because I wasn't impressed with their chicken the first time I went. Gave them a second shot and was disappointed again., especially when I discovered three plastic beads in my food! I was even more unimpressed when I called to complain and the manager blew me off and said, "Do you know how many mongolian beefs I sold today? Impossible. I'll give you a new lunch." Umm, no. I don't want another disgusting plate of food with pieces of your cook's jewlery in it. Never again.

I brought my mom to have dinner there last night. We had Prig King. It's $12.95 including ,appetizer, cocktails (happy hour). It's very good deal! We both had Tom Yum Shrimp soup and Dumpling as appetizer. I tried Pad Thai with Shrimp and my mom had Chicken Basil sauce. We had coconut rice c and sticky with mango as dessert to share. I just want to say it's perfect! Also, the service is very attentive and fast. Waitresses are very helpful and friendly. My mom was very happy and she would recommend her friends to visit Tawanna thai when they're comming to the LA City. I would to go back again soon next week before my broadway show. See you soon, Tawanna thai

I had a good experience in this restaurant. One waitress, probably the same person some people mentioned in here, may be some syerra. But when I asked some questions about menu, she is the one who knows everything. Food was great. I think the price is average. This time I went in my lunch time, and I definitely go back for dinner with my family

i have no idea how this restaurant made it to second place on best of citysearch. i love thai food, but this place is way, way, way overrated! our waitress had an attitude, didn't smile, didn't try to have eye contact with us. she was just blah, and monotone all night. we were the only people in the restaurant, but still they didn't manage to bring out the appetizers before the main course. so by the time we were done with the appetizers, our main course was closer to cold than to hot. before we finished eating our entrees, the waitress came over to our table asked if everything was ok, and pretty much slammed to check on our table....well great experience, never again!!! thank you. the dishes were ok, weren't anything spectacular though.

I discovered Tawanna Thai a couple of months ago and now it is my preferred spot for great, cheap thai food. Classy enough to bring a date, but cheap enough to go every week for a quick bite. The mango sticky rice is particularly amazing! The Thai Green Chicken Curry is also excellent. Highly recommended!

The very first time I had gone was for a GIRLS AFTERNOON, and I haven't stopped going since! Everyone I have turned on to it, has gone back! I would definitely reccommend you trying it at least once! Great place for an intimate date. The seating is close together but the atmosphere that it creates makes the experience all worth while. NO WAIT, JUST GREAT!!

I went here recently and had terrible service. Requested for things to be made that are on their online menu and was told that "it was for lunch and takeout orders only." What is the difference between putting my food on a real plate versus in a to go box? Come on. The food was alright but the next day I felt so nauseaus. Probably msg. Pretty terrible feeling and felt so sick all day. My friend got a soup and it was literally chicken stock, could have made it at home. Two entrees were brought out way before the other two and they started clearing half the table while my friend was still eating. I will not be back!

This is where my partner of 4 years and I went on our first date. We have been back dozens of times since. The food, alcoholic beverages, and atmosphere are pleasant and modern. Located in the heart of the Los Angeles, it is the perfect place to let down with friends or bring that special someone. The bo luc lac has always been one of my favorites. The BBQ chicken is great for spice. Sping rolls are always above average - I recommend the shrimp rolls. The sherry martini will make you want to head straight to Los Angeles in CAL. Tawanna Thai, you are a dream!

I started out with the Lychi Martini which was FABULOUS. The food also was great. Drunked Pastas and the sauce was decadent. The steamed fish was very nice as well, although not quite as much flavor. The servers were helpful friendly and on top of things. I've been here quite a few times and am always pleased with the food and service.

We had the pleasure of dining at Tawanna Thai last night and as always the food were excellent good. The service was very pleasant. My favor is crying tiger, it has been the best. Sometimes, we have your delivery services also and it is very reliable. We just want to say thank you for been such wonderful restaurant

.

This was probably the best restaurant in LA, let alone the entire country. Hands down. Whether it be biz or pleasure, this wonderful dining experience is sure to WOW your client .This is the second time I went. First time was a charm, and I feel that standard has dropped since 6 months ago. But, it's still quite an experience and better than most restaurants.

Pros: great traditional Thai food

We went to this restaurant on Valentines Day. The food was wonderful! Even with all that was going on the owner herself seated us and spent a few moments answering some questions we had. Because of our dietary requirements (and I?m picky) we asked that some of the items be cooked differently than the ?traditional? way. As the waiter went to ask the owner (all I was thinking was? oh boy here it comes) and to our surprise she said ?sure, no problem.? Without even thinking about it! Anyone who has allergies or can?t eat certain things knows that most of the time the response isn?t quite as friendly... LOL!!!

Pros: clean, great taste

There are a few Thai places that serve top quality food at reasonable prices, and this is one of them. Consistently excellent food, solid service, great for takeout too. We use them when we have lots of guests .
Our favorites are the yellow curry with chicken, and the crying tiger . the restaurant itself is tiny, though we've never had a problem getting a seat for dinner. Have fun and enjoy!

Without a doubt, the best Pan-fried noodles in the City of Los angeles. BYO X ( if B= beer, and W= wine, then solve for X). The service was usually decent when I went, But for a fun time .Good place to eat late at night, The food is tasty, a bit too greasy for my taste but tasty.As I said, perfect place to have a late night meal or take out.

I'm big on ambience so I like this place. Nice modern chic decor. What I love best is that the staff is so friendly! Thai food is good. A tad on the weak side on the robust flavor scale. Seating is always prompt as is the service. Dishes range from $8-$12, so not bad. Being a night owl I love the late hours!

I just left LA. and I had the opportunity to eat at Tawanna Thai Restaurant. It is a very simple restaurant, but it is always busy. I happen to come across it because I was staying at the Marriott in Downtown LA. It happened to be surrounded by several thai restaurants, but I chose this one. The food and the service was so good. I have to recommend the tom yum soup, it is so good. It is the first time I have had it and it is REALLY FILLING. I would also recommend the silver noodle salad. If you like spicy authentic thai food, you must try Tawanna Thai.

Cons: Simple but great food and service

I've eaten here three times; two take out and one dine in. All three times were extraordinarily good. I don't remember all the dishes I've had there, but the basil duck, panang curry and mussamun curry are all fabulous. The duck was juicy, the panang had just enough tanginess, and the mussamun had a poetic indulgence of peanuts. I am really annoyed that they charge you for rice, but the prices are pretty reasonable, and the tastes are fabulous, so I'll let it go. The service is friendly but lacks a bit on the English front. I haven't had an order screwed up yet though. Bottom line: go here for really fabulous thai food in a nice relaxed atmosphere.

My mother was Thai, and a foodie, too. I grew up eating VERY good Thai food here, and in Thailand. Although I gamely try the Thai restaurants in LA, I usually don't bother returning. Tawanna Thai is a totally different story. Tawanna Thai dishes out the home foods, without fuss and without distraction. This is authentic-tasting, and very well-priced. My favorites: som tum, and chicken fried rice. Mmm...
