Like a lot of people in Glendale, I had noticed the Sedthee Thai Eatery sign lit since October, yet I had never seen any signs of life. I had all but given up on the restaurant opening. So it was with a fair amount of surprise when last week, I saw people inside and thought I’d give it a shot.
I’m not a bona fide culinary critic, but I am a lover of Thai food. So I’d like to think I can competently discern between good, better and best. I am overjoyed to say that what is happening at this new spot on Brand goes above and beyond anything I’ve experienced in the genre.
The two people responsible for Sedthee Thai Eatery are siblings Jimmy Vanavi and Christie Vanavi-Lin. While this is their first restaurant venture, it’s clear that they learned well from the two generations of their family that have owned Thai restaurants in Glendale and Thailand.
