Open to suggestions, maybe 7:30pm at Beverly Hills Thai or Trattoria Natalie?
That could work for me.
ETA: I'd prefer Thai.

Imo Bodhi Thai is much better than BH Thai

Yehoshua and I have asked several respected mashgichim in LA who have all said to avoid Bodhi Thai.

+1, though I agree it's better and wish that it was reliable. I miss it a lot. They even moved to a bigger, nicer location recently.

Shame they don't go under a more mainstream hechsher.
Ever ask them why not?

I haven't. I really want to though. Maybe if people call they'll change? The hashgacha used to be more reliable.

Seems worth the shot. Especially if you know others in the same boat that will ask them.

I just called them and they say their under KOLA hashgacha. My sources say KOLA is a legit hashgacha.

Because mine and Yehoshua's are top notch.

Who's your source? I asked reputable kashrus people in LA and, while you're correct it's under KOLA, they don't recommend it.

"they" meaning? KOLA  or  respected mashgichim in LA

That. Of course KOLA will tell you their hashgacha is reliable. Which hashgacha wouldn't?
