This recently opened place replaced Palms Thai in the strip mall at Hollywood and Hobart. They have a $3.99 lunch special - super cheap. I tried it today - I had the pad kra pao with fried tofu. Small serving of nicely spiced pad kra pao - Thai basil, peppers, onions and fried tofu. The plate also included a grab of straight from the bag salad and a dressing of the same caliber, as well as two fried wonton wrappers with a dab of sweet sauce. While both of the sides were forgettable, the pad kra pao was really pretty good - especially for the price.

My only complaint was that, at least for the lunch special, Thai Patio uses anemic rice. No kao hom malee (that fragrant Thai jasmine rice) here. Oh well - for $3.99, this seems like a nice bargain. And hey - it is right next to Bhan Khanom Thai, so dessert is taken care of!

Anybody else dive deeper into the menu at this place yet?
