we waited at least 20 minutes before anyone came over to our table. Just one waitress for the entire outdoor dining space. She was lovely and was doing her best but they need more wait staff. Food was so so. The inside space is kind of cool but I don't think I'll go back

Drove from LA to Long Beach to give this restaurant a try…turns out it’s amazing and well worth the drive. Both the food and service are outstanding. Thai District also has a great wine list!

This could have been that it was the 4th but the food was quite average, the service was poor although our server apologized profusely- it was really as if to say “I’ll keep apologizing but, nothing is going to get better” We waited over an our for cool soup and warm rice both of which were waay too salty. She offered to take it back and at that point I thought I was on candid camera. Had I been dumb enough to send anything back I would have deserved everything I got and then some. Unfortunately one of the few places that is dog friendly- where I definitely won’t be trying again.

Overall the meal was well prepared and fresh. The fresh rolls were presented beautifully with edible flowers and peanut sauce. The Pad Thai with chicken had a tumeric base and had chewy noodles and the yellow curry with shrimp was rich and flavorful.

Restroom is up a treacherous flight of stairs. Only one toilet for the entire restaurant.
That one flaw must be rectified.

We enjoyed a delicious meal on the outdoor patio though it was a bit chilly as our table
was located away from the limited number of heat lamps. The papaya salad was excellent,
fresh, crisp and seasoned perfectly. The fall off the bone tender lamb shank curry was also amazing, but the pork belly stew though flavorful was a bit tough and greasy.
The service was good though a bit slow since the same staff had to work in the interior
and the patio, which was about a half block away from the main restaurant. Overall,
we had a great time and strongly recommend Thai District for its great food, but would
probably chose the interior dining option next time.

My lamb osso bucco was especially good, but my guests were not terribly impressed with either the yellow curry or the pork with basil. I thought our chicken satae appetizer was a bit dry, but the coconut panna cotta with guava sauce and the churros were a big hit with the table. We also liked the transparent plastic bag with ice that held our bottle of riesling. All in all, a mixed experience, but I'll be back because I know the boat noodles are definitely the best in town, and the osso bucco was terrific!

I take colleagues here regularly. The restaurant never disappoints. Our waitress was Patty and she did a great job. She even bought us a nice mango sorbet at the end. It was great. The duck as a main is really super good.

We all agreed that is was the best Thai food we had eaten in a long time. I ate there a few years ago and the menu has expanded to include some great items. We had 3 of their summer specials; Duck Curry, Trout with seasonal vegetables, and a Thai Osso Bucco. All were perfectly prepared, beautifully presented and delicious!

The food was amazing!! My daughter got a little cold sitting outside, but I told our server & they brought a heat lamp right away!! The service was fast & efficient!! I do recommend asking for the crispy pork belly if you get pork with your pineapple curry, not just regular pork. Overall it was a great experience.

This is by far the best Thai food I’ve ever had since moving to the west coast. The service was a tad slow but as a former waitress, I could tell our server was working the entire area we were seated at so I didn’t fault her one bit……she was still A1 & so was the food.
Give it a try. You will not be disappointed. 🙂

Food was great but took my granddaughter for her birthday made a reservation for inside was told we had to sit outside cause the inside was full but we did do what was asked for a reservation. So that was really disappointing cause the inside was very nice and was what I seen on the site . Overall food good waitress great she bought a ice cream at the end .

Four of us went and ate outside. The food was excellent. We had 6 different dishes and they were all excellent. One of our party said it was the best salad she had ever had.
If not for the service, the rating would have been a 5. When the server was there, the service was great. But, I believe she had too many tables to cover and was not as attentive as she should have been. Since we were not in a big rush, all and all the lunch was enjoyed by all.

While the food was good, the service was just awful. It took 20 minutes after we sat down for someone to come check on us. We were a table of 4 and one of the meals came out nearly half an hour after everyone else’s and it was a salad. Part of one person’s meal came out 15 mi items before everyone else’s. There just wasn’t any speed or common sense applied by the staff.

Amazing food! I spent month in Thailand and this place has the most authentic flavors that I have found in LA so far. My only critique is that the green papaya salad had a non traditional spin which wasn’t what I wanted but still was good.

They don’t do a Birthday thing.. although we asked for it.
They should offer it and charge on us which we will be ok with that. We eat there so many times too, so a not disappointed. All the rest is good.
