Well, I like drunken noodles but you might want to be sure how spicy you want them. I get mild. I am just not a hot foods person and I know it goes against Thai food. However, even the mild has a bit of spicyness.
I don't know how the restaurant near you makes it but I got the chicken kind. Here's the description of the dish: "Fresh thick rice noodles stir-fried with fresh chili pepper, onion, red & green peppers basil leaves, and your choice of beef, pork, or chicken"
If you are a Thai newb, get mild and work yourself up. I would advise against green curries unless you want a shock to your mouth. My husband loves green curries.
I recommend Pad Thai - very basic and not hot at all. Drunken noodles are great but get mild so you can judge the heat of the restaurant's dishes.
Never order ped ped or Thai hot because that means make it hot and some restaurants go overboard.
Here's a picture if you are curious (I am one of those silly people that snap their food):
