Cafe Linda’s Restaurant Review

: This largely undiscovered eatery sits on a quiet street in Old Pasadena, a couple blocks from the congestion of Colorado Boulevard. In addition to a well-executed menu of modern Thai dishes, its sleek décor and friendly service make it a worthwhile destination when you’re craving Thai cuisine. The menu is filled with the ubiquitous Thai staples, including respectable panang curry and pad thai. More modern options include starters like wonton curry pouches with cucumber dip and fried oysters with hot chili sauce, followed by a lemon grass-marinated pork chop with peanut sauce or peppercorn-crusted salmon over crisp asparagus. Coconut ice cream makes for a nice finish to a contemporary Thai meal.
