What You'll Get


Today's curried and spiced Groupon gets you the hot, sour, sweet, and salty cooking of Southeast Asia. For $20, you get $40 worth of gourmet Thai food at Rambutan in Silverlake.

The restaurant, located just off the 101 on Sunset Boulevard, has a huge Thai menu that includes 19 types of small plates. For finger food, try the homemade green curry dumplings with shrimp and scallops ($8), or the beef waterfall, charbroiled top sirloin with red shallots, ground roasted chili, coriander, green onions, and fiercely crushed roasted jasmine ($9). Rambutan's fast and friendly staff serves curries, fried rice, noodles, soups, and wok wonders bursting with fresh herbs and spices in a comfortable dining room with mirrors, dark wood tables, and dark mirrors looking into mysterious woods. Curries, such as the red duck with pineapple, tomatoes, and Thai basil ($11.50), and slow-cooked Siam pork chops marinated in soya bean sauce and black pepper corn ($13) complement specialty cocktails such as the ginger cosmopolitan with soju, triple sec, cranberry juice, lime, and fresh ginger ($7). Reservations are recommended.

  • Many Thai restaurants cater to timid American palates, playing down the chile heat, eschewing the fish sauce, and sweetening dishes. But the Rambutan kitchen refreshingly and correctly assumes that its hip Silver Lake clientele has the sophistication and ability to appreciate the full Thai flavors. – Michelle Huneven, LA Weekly
  • ...I consistently get the best Thai food here. Their noodles are always perfectly cooked. The curries are delicious... If I crave Thai, I have to go out of my way to get it from rambutan or I am not satisfied. – monaquita, Citysearch

About Rambutan


Rambutan's elegant eatery welcomes diners to colorful feasts of coconut-milk curry, small plates of skewered barbecue, spicy papaya salad, and fragrant lemongrass noodle soups. Like a chauffeur wearing skinny jeans, the décor is cosmopolitan hip with a refined elegance, surrounding diners at close-knit tables with soft lighting. As guests sit on luxurious, padded seating, they tweeze lacquered chopsticks around morsels of water-chestnut-stuffed steamed dumplings, or they plunge spoons into aromatic galanga seafood soup or oyster mushroom tom yum. Weekends often find revelers sipping craft cocktails in the adjacent lounge area while DJs churn out danceable beats.
