Times turns Thai at Talesai: S. Irene goes ethnic

Thai sausage from the L.A. Times

Where to get "upscale" Thai food is a perennial Chowhound question, with possibilities including Nakkara and Naraya. Add to these the 25-year old Talesai on the Sunset Strip, which S. Irene Virbila reviews in Wednesday's L.A. Times, giving it 1 1/2 stars (between good and very good). Talesai has undergone a Jitlada-style makeover with new regional dishes and the likes of filet mignon larb -- I'm trying it tonight, and it's entirely possibly I've eaten more Thai food than Virbila, so I'll let you know how it goes.
