This Miracle Mile mainstay isn't much different than all other Thai food spots. The décor is pleasant but unimaginative - tropical fish tanks, soft reddish lighting, and glass-top tables adorned with an orchid centerpiece. The food, likewise, is tasty but nothing overly exciting that screams out with flavor. In fact, if you're a fan of spice, it's best to alert your waiter as the de facto protocol is to err on the side of mild heat. Besides usual favorites such as pad Thai ($12.95), noodles sautéed with ground peanuts, scallions, bean sprouts, and vegetables, there are a few house specialties. Myra's pond ($22.95) is a dish of snapper chunks sautéed in wine and ginger served with glass noodles, napa cabbage, and string beans. Volcano chicken ($15.95) consists of crisply fried chicken and steamed vegetables cooked in a chili sauce. A jumping shrimp appetizer ($8.95) features grilled shrimp marinated in lime juice, onions, scallions, and Thai spices. The restaurant is rarely full to capacity, and yet service can be spotty. Nevertheless, dishes tend to arrive quickly, and takeout is efficient.
