Lunch time take out means that I get to go out and explore my surroundings. The only Natalee Thai location that I have been to is the one in Culver City.
This location is much smaller than the Culver City location. The atmosphere is much more casual. There is both indoor and outdoor seating. There is valet, a parking structure, and street parking available. The restaurant is located inside a shopping center.
I went straight to the vegetarian menu and decided to order fresh vegetables and fried tofu, sautéed with garlic and brown sauce. I called and made sure that brown sauce did not mean meat broth and also asked them not to use any butter. Also, I noted, when I placed my order, not to include any mushrooms, since I am allergic. I ordered a side of brown rice as well.
At first, I thought that I had ordered way too much food. Once I finished all my veggies I decided to eat half of the brown rice. Then, I decided to eat the rest of the rice. I felt satisfied, but not stuffed. It was the perfect portion.
I ordered on-line via Eat24, which is convenient. My order was ready on time and there were no mistakes. I was greeted immediately, when I walked in and I was in and out in less than 5 minutes. Overall it was a good experience and I know this will be one of my regular lunch spots from now on.
