Anybody know of a Thai place that serves Pad Thai like they do in Thailand?

When I was in Thailand a few years ago, I was in noodle heaven with the ubiquitous pad thai street vendors. Unlike virtually all pad thai I have had in the States, in Thailand you find it with green onion, sprouts, peanuts, tofu, and meat of your choice. The seasoning is mild with fish and soy sauce and you add sugar and chili flakes and squeeze fresh lime on your own. For some reason the pad thai here is overly-sweetened with something akin to a sweet and sour glaze. Any help hounders would be greatly appreciated; preferably something near the Valley.
