One of the best Thai foods that I had. All dishes are good. Seriously, I had zero regrets. The portions are reasonable and the price is ok. But if you want to be super happy, just add one more dish than the number of people. Usually, I and my friend order three dishes and we come out with big fat... More

If you have guts, go for this, and you will have more guts. Like spleen, liver, tendon, beef parts in a soup base of blood. But let me tell you, it was really good. Could have used more noodles in my book, and maybe some more vegs, but it was really very good. And SO inexpensive.

We originally discovered Sapp during a Thai food tasting walking tour with Chef Jet Tila several years ago. We returned yesterday and enjoyed some more of their delicious authentic Thai food. We ordered the famous Beef Boat Noodles, the Drunken Noodles with Beef, the BBQ pork and Chinese sausage with steamed rice, the Seafood with Glass Noodles, and the Jade... More

We were so happy when this place was open on Christmas. We stopped in to eat a late lunch after arriving from the East Coast around noon. It was chilly out, much chillier than we expected, so I really just wanted a bowl of something warm. For my main I ordered something familiar - a shrimp wonton soup in a... More

Having lived in Los Angeles most of my life and worked a number of years in Thailand, I can say that Sapp is not just some of the best Thai food in LA, but also some of the best in the world. Indeed, the food here is more authentic than much of the food you can find as an average... More

Went to this place as it was recommended by Mr. Bourdain. I must say, it was a real treat. I've never had boat noodles before and well, now I have! Went with my girlfriend. I ordered the boat noodles and she ordered the Jade noodles. Both were quite yummy. I would say the boat noodles are of course their specialty,... More

I do not know what the hyper is about. The Jade noodle is noodles without soup and minimal sauce with a few toppings. The Pad Thai noodles were ok, nothing to write home about

I loved eating here, and I will go again and again. The jade noodles were perfect! I could eat them every single day without getting tired of those awesome flavor combos. Nicely sized portion, not too spicy. Also, dinner for $7 is hard to beat in LA. The service was great, food came out fast and our waiter was really... More

The last time we were there, the staff asked us "the usual?". I've been eating at Sapp since I was a freshman in high school and I am now well into my 30's. That's how devoted I am to this great, nondescript restaurant that we visit almost once a week. I have tried alot of variations of Boat Noodle Soup... More

Sapp is a tiny, family owned restaurant buried in a strip mall in Thai Town on Hollywood Boulevard. Everything is cheap, and they have a wonderful array of soups and noodles. Some of the dishes are standard Thai fare for Thai restaurants in the US, but many are not. I haven't found jade noodles in many places, and theirs are... More
