Anyone who appreciates AUTHENTIC Thai food will think this place is phenomenal. I just ate lunch there yet again and literally every dish was delicious. Today we had Duck Salad, Fish Cakes, Green Curry with Chicken, Pineapple Fried Rice, these excellent little pastry cups with chicken (forgot the name), as well as a few noodle dishes. I recommend ordering family style so you can try a bit of everything. If you don't know what to order just ask your server for a recommendation.

Regarding the service: It is very friendly, well-intentioned, but definitely slow. But that is only because it is a family operation, and Pam is the only one who cooks. It is for this reason that, as the restaurant's motto proclaims, "every dish is made with love."

The location is rather unfortunate, and don't be surprised if there aren't many customers. The decor is inviting and comfortable, with hand-painted murals of elephants playing in waterfalls...

Those Joe Six-packs who gave this place bad reviews thought they were walking into a fast food joint and can't be taken seriously. Give it a shot, you won't be sorry.

Pam's place is one of the worst restaurant in Los Angeles. Very expensive and very little meal per dish. I went there with my girlfriend once. We ordered 3 dishes (fried rice, chicken curry and soups) and it cost us about $40. They wouldn't even seafood. We usually go out and eat at least twice a week. So we know how much usually cost for 2 people. We'd been to so many Thai restaurants. The food tasted just like any other Thai restaurants and way last expensive ($20-25) for 2 people.

Pros: Food tasted alright

Cons: Very expensive for small dishes

I've gone to this place 3 times. The first 2 times were pretty good... good enough for me to go back the third time. I never minded their slowness, their chatty boy (I assume is their owner's son) who insists on eating your food nor their exceptionally small portions. What I minded on my last trip there was that they forgot that we were there!!! We were the only group (of 4) sitting outside that evening but honesty, you can't forget your customers! I had to repeatedly go back into where they were gathering and chatting to ask them to come out to take our order...to refill our drinks...to get another plate....to get more rice....to get boxes to go...to get our coffee...to get our bill. They will go on for 15-20 mins without coming outside. This was my first time ever not leaving a tip. When they asked how the meal was (oh, after I went to pay inside...) I told them it was terrible and that I had never had to work so hard serving myself while out to dinner with friends. They simply failed to do their jobs. Will not go back again until the those servers are GONE. period.

Pam's place has outstanding food -- closest to thailand this side of thailand. Spices are pungent and hot without being overwhelming. Tasty food, and super nice service. Do not get delivery -- takes forever; plus the dining experience is nice.

This was my first time visiting. The food was good. The service was average and looked at times confused. I enjoyed the vegetarian dishes. I will go again.

If you don't want to make the trek out to Thai Town, just go to Pam's Place in Venice. The food is amazing and all cooked to order so don't try to hurry. I recommend the pineapple fried rice, the spicy beef or any of their myriad specials. This is a great place for a date for people who love Thai food.

PROS: Best Thai food
CONS: Takes a while to get food

The service was slow, and they forgot our appetizer. When our food finally came (45 mins gone by with nobody checking on us) it tasted horrible. Chicken dish tasted like burnt garlic, and my date's seafood dish was fishy and did not taste fresh. The soup smelled like dirty feet and did not taste much better. Save your time and money and pass on this place! When we complained, the owner was very defensive and rude.

It used to be that you could just wander in and have one of the most beautiful Thai meal in America prepared exactly to your taste. Those days are past, not the beautiful food and presentation, but the ease of getting it. Since being discovered -- or rather re-discovered -- following her move from Lincoln Blvd., table at Pam's is a very long-shot unless you book ahead. But, it is so worth it! Plan to make an evening of it. Don't let the modest prices fool you, Pam's is not about fast food, to the contrary, it's about gourment cusine.
