leela makes bad thai

Leela Thai Restaurant
1737 Silver Lake Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90026
(323) 660-6100

price: $
verdict: not worth my time

not the best thai food around but it gets play i think because of it's location. it's next to spaceland and the other thai restaurant in the vincinity that i can think of located in silverlake is rambutan thai which costs a bit more. i guess for silverlakers who don't want to drive, leela is an alright alternative.

anyways, the food is blah and greasy. the only thing i will still get from them is their thai ice tea especially after a warm walk around the reservoir (i really dig the ice chips they have in the drink). otherwise, i would rather make the extra effort to go somewhere else for thai...like vim's on hollywood.
suprisingly tasty mango sticky rice. the rice has a nice, subtle coconut flavor.


  1. I totally agree. I used to get Leela bc I'd walk around the res but I'd regret it every time!

  2. yup...oily. good ice chips though. the only silver lining.....
