Land of Thai in Studio City

So this place used to be called J. Joo Cafe, I liked it. It's been remodeled and now known as Land of Thai. Went there at first opening, was decent, not great. Been going back since to give it more tries, and it's been getting better every time. I'm NOT an authority on thai food. This could be total gringo food and I wouldn't know it. But I DID go to Renu Nakorn, albeit once and probably didn't order the right things, but I like LoT better. Went there last night with the girl. Was stuffed up so started with tom yum koong, asked for extra extra spicy. What arrived was a big beautiful steaming bowl of a fantastic broth, brimming with tons of chilies, cilantro, green onion, and not-overcooked-shrimp. Excellent. Perfect flavor balance for me. Also got a tofu curry and of course a pad thai. I know, this isn't mussel omelette thai, this is noodles and soup thai, but I love it. I'd like this place to stay in business seeing as how it's right across the street from my apt, so give it a try! It's cheap, 6-8 bucks per plate, good lunch and dinner specials too. Also (re: thi and anyone else who knows their way around thai) let me know what you think as far as authenticity goes. I'm always interested if, good or bad, what I'm getting is the real deal.

Oh btw, it's really close to the Vineland and Ventura intersection. It's in the same strip mall as a Supercuts, Tortas Mexico, Popeye's chicken, and a bar called Residual's. Coming from Vineland, make a right onto Ventura, will be on your immediate left.
