Good value, taste, atmospher

I ordered mushroom soup made with coconut milk it was tasty but wasn't hot as put in the menu. I also order pad Thai and I would say it was ok not special. I liked sticky rice mango desert probably needs more juice! Good responsive staff and clean and beautiful setting Overal 3.75

This is our go-to Thai Restaurant. Food is amazing and plenty of options from Curry Puffs to Noodles. Restaurant is decent size and eating in or take out are both excellent. Portion sizes are decent and have plenty of vegetarian options. Lot's of parking around the restaurant as well.

The egg plant, however, was the worst I've ever had. I absolutely adore Thai food. This was flavorless and lackluster. The eggplant was tough and way overcooked. The sauce was adequate, but did not soak into the overcooked eggplant. Should have heeded the negative reviews I found on Yelp. There's another smaller Thai restaurant around the corner, more of a...

A lot of choice. Food is good. Service without comments. Decoration is a bit old fashioned but that's OK.

I ordered from this location a few years back and it was decent. We ordered delivery during that order because they were one of the few places that delivered late night. While back in South San Francisco recently for business, I happened to pass by their restaurant in downtown South San Francisco. It was a cold and windy day and... More

Ate dinner here with my wife one evening while staying near San Francisco. As far as Thai food goes, this was OK, but far from the best I've had. The chicken soup used breast meat (not so tender) and even though they served it in a soup warmer, the heating element was not used thus the soup was not served... More

I have lunch here one day with my son and I was surprised how good the food was. Usually I go to the City for authentic Thai food, now I can just go downtown and get good food with a nice atmostphere and friendly staff

We were staying at a nearby hotel and didn't know any of the restaurants in South San Francisco. We love good Thai food that isn't too spicy, and another reviewer for this website recommended Thai Satay. San Francisco is a very crowded city, and that is true for South San Francisco near the Airport too. We like to eat pretty... More

I was in the mood for Thai as I waited to head to the airport to catch my flight. So, I stopped in and enjoyed the chicken fried rice with a cucumber salad. They were both outstanding, huge pieces of chicken and plenty of vegetables and egg in the rice. The cucumber salad was equally good with huge chunks of... More
