Amazing service!

The food was pretty good and the service was amazing! We came here after a night of drinking with a few friends and we wanted noodle soup, but the server said they didn't have it on the menu because it wasn't that great. He gave us the noodles complimentary so we could test it, and it was... read more

This is an excellent little Thai place that provides great food and variety at very reasonable prices, especially for the Bay Area. The menu is extensive and varied. The value is very good and the portions are large. Staff is attentive. Food arrives quickly. Had the red curry chicken and it was very good - spicy but not hot. Thai... More

I stumbled on it and tried tod mun (fish cakes) and cat fish and it was one of the best ever!! And I am picky about my thai food! Perfectly spiced didn't even need the extra spice condiments tray after ordering spicy!

We again found ourselves at la Quinta South San Francisco after a long time and decided to pay a return visit to Thai Satay as we enjoyed the first visit. Nothing had changed; service, food and cost were excellent. I would highly recommend Thai Satay. It was only a short walk fro la Quinta and we had worked up a... More

Good value and tasty food. The Pad Thai was OK but the eggplant and pork was excellent (roasted eggplant was nice and creamy).

Dinner on September 28. We were going to visit Yoko's, supposedly a block away, but found that it no longer exists. So we decided to try this place instead, Mistake. The people were very nice, the atmosphere was good, but unfortunately, the food was not. When I think of Thai food, I think mostly of fresh vegetables in light sauces,... More

The food was not bad, better than most Thai places but not as good as Thai in the city. Not real clean , hopefully the kitchen is. Enjoyed the curries and pad Thai .
