Fast service and good meal.

Got in very quickly. The Gai Gra Prow (w/ the fried egg) was delicious! Loved the sliced green beans and just enough heat! My mom had some sort of mixed seafood dish that she enjoyed as well! Would definitely go back.

Bland food, slow service. Not what it presents itself as and not up to its price bracket. MD forgot about us. Nice room but sadly just not very good.

Have eaten at Soi 4 a couple of times - tremendous menu / selection of very interesting Thai dishes. First time or two, meal was excellent. Fresh, hot, great spice - really reminded us of being in Bangkok. Nice service, good experience. More recently, the quality of the food has really slipped. Not sure if there's a different chef, but... More

Was invited by a loyal Soi 4 customer. Wasn't looking forward to it as Thai isn't a fave of mine. I was dazzled by the unique flavors, textures, colors, wine choices and deliciously fragrances that greets you when you enter. Do not be shy, this restaurant will not disappoint. Lastly, the services was pitch perfect & pricing was obscenely underpriced!!... More

My wife and I have been dining at Soi4 for several years, and I have arranged a party for a group of 30 in their upstairs dining room. I have also taken family and friends from abroad to Soi4. I have never had a bad or disappointing meal there, I have never heard a complaint or negative comment from any... More

I live about a mile away from Soi 4 in gourmet ghetto, and have to say that it is one of my FAVORITE places to eat. They have a great happy hour menu to start with if you are lucky enough to get there before 6:30, and I've just never had anything I didn't like from the main menu. I'm... More

This place has never disappointed us. My family comes to the Bay Area twice a year to visit relatives and each time we come to Soi4 since we discovered it about 4 years ago. It has never disappointed us. There are some dishes we like better than others but on the whole it's a home run every time. Although the... More

We had a very good meal at Soi 4 Bangkok Eatery (5421 College Ave., Oakland, CA 94618, tel. 510-655-0889, www.soifour.com). We liked our young woman server very much. We arrived at 5:30 p.m. just when happy hour prices were in going into effect. All appetizers were $6 at that time and wine and beer was ½ price. We were hungry,... More

I've been to Soi 4 many times since discovering it 3 years ago.

We had a delicious dinner here. The dining room is very nice and the service was excellent. We shared several dishes and all were great. The menu was interesting with some unusual items. Parking can be a problem along College Avenue but once inside the restaurant you won't be disappointed.
