THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Chan Darette Restaurant Review

: One of the first hip Thai restaurants in L.A., Chan Dara has spawned a few offshoots (this among them), which are as good-looking and sexy as the original-and with just as good-looking young Thai waiters and waitresses. They do the typical Thai dishes extremely well: crunchy, not-too-sweet mee krob, chewy phad Thai noodles, various vegetable stir-fries, spicy beef and commendable satays. The barbecued chicken is a mainstay, as are such seafood specialties as basil-and-chili-sauced rock and roll clams and deep-fried catfish. This one has a full bar.
