Located in Anaheim’s Thai Corner, this is what a good Thai restaurant should be: unassuming, cheap and all about the food. The Issan-style cuisine is served two ways: combo platters from the premade-food counter or tableside service, ordered from a long menu printed on tri-fold paper. Fresh ingredients and Thai spices make up dozens of excellent dishes, but the gem is the crispy fried rice: a bevy of flavorful veggies punctuated by rock-hard rice crisps. You can even shop at the adjoining Thai market and bring delicacies of Southeast Asia home with you.
