How I heard of this place: My sister’s good friend and fellow PhD. She’s local and all about tasty food.

Type of cuisine: Authentic Thai.

Sutha Thai Kitchen Indoors

Ambiance: A tiny, cramped hole-in-the-wall found in a small Tustin strip mall, this establishment is easily missed.

A handful of tables sit extremely close to each other, as diners bump elbows with their unknown neighbors, and await take-out orders. The close quarters are warmly infused with deep, rust-colored walls and simple decor.

A haven which places great attention to simplicity, while delivering some of the most authentically spiced Thai food I have had in the USA.
What I ordered: We started with Cream Cheese Wontons ($8.99): crispy fried wontons with cream cheese and onion,

and Shrimp Sarong ($8.99): deep fried shrimp and ground pork wrapped in crispy egg noodles served with sweet and sour sauce,

and a Papaya Salad ($8.99): shredded green papaya mixed with crusted roasted peanuts, green beans, palm sugar, and tomato with seasoning and spicy lime juice.

and the too-spicy-to-consume Pad Kee Mow ($8.99) with chicken: flat noodles stir fried with chili and mint leaves in a spicy sauce.
What I loved: The cream cheese wontons were a special treat and a delightful surprise, as were the shrimp! I loved the fried rice! The Pad See Ew also a table favorite was a sad thing to see come to an end.
