What's like Natalee Thai but in OC?

My wife just loves Natalee Thai, on Venice Blvd, in Culver City. Her sister lives in Topanga. but the third person who usually sets up meetings there is moving away from the LA area, so my wife is yearning to find a sub nearer to us in South OC. I wish I could describe exactly what she loves so much about Natalee Thai’s food, but hopefully there will be someone (or two) here familiar enough to suggest some places that we can actually try without a long drive. Hoping to keep my wife happy. ;o)))

What city? Irvine, Aliso Viejo, Newport Beach

Newport/Costa Mesa south to San Clemente, with exceptions for someplace that does whatever it is Natalee Thai does.

Tom Kha Gai is her favorite at Natalee Thai. Here’s her text as to why: “bigger bowl lots of everything “heavier” mouth feel just better overall flavorwise i think {has the ltttle cute mushrooms too}”

We like Mongkhut Thai very much, but she says it’s not as good. Haven’t tried the other two. Thanks for the recs.

You’re a good hubby
