Tucked into a quiet Los Feliz strip mall is Pattaya Bay Thai Restaurant, a hidden gem that’s likely to be missed by anyone who doesn’t live locally. For those in the know, Pattaya Bay offers up high-quality Thai dishes with excellent service. This no-frills establishment is minimalistic to say the least, with just a handful of plain black tables and vinyl-lined seats to choose from. That means Pattaya Bay might not be your first choice for date night, but for quick-serve meals or takeaway options, it’s a local favorite. What the eatery lacks in décor, it more than makes up for in cuisine, with plates like deep fried soft shell crab paired with chili and crispy basil leaves. Perhaps its best-selling dish is pad Thai Sukhothai: dried shrimp, pork and bean sprouts mixed with crushed peanuts and stir-fried rice noodles.
