Nice decor, acceptable food but nothing to write home about. My eggplant shrimp dish was good but had too much oil. My colleague's "spicy" tofu dish was not spicy at all, but this was addressed via some condiments. The red wine was decent. TIP: The veggie spring roll was fresh and tasty

Good selections. If you're vegan ask if the dish has fish sauce. They were able to accommodate us though and we were satisfied especially with Tom Yum soup and pad Thai.

The food was delicious and authentic, with generous portions. The staff was very friendly and both my husband and I enjoyed our meals: salmon with chili garlic sauce, and hot chili paste scallops. We also had the Tom Kha Gai soup with shrimp, which came to our table on fire and which was delicious.

Setting out for another Asian restaurant option, this location turned out to be a well organised and tasteful restaurant. Try the Tom Yam soup and the basil beef, both good. Also the satay and the grilled salmon with lemon leaves left a good impression. A nice little star on the Asian horizon in South San Francisco. Go there!

I have eaten Thai food many place and highly recommend this place! The Panang Beef was killer, so was the Tom Yum soup. The portion size was more than adequate with enough Curry to cover all the rice, which is hard to find especially in to go orders. I will come back to Thai Satay!

I went here for my first that food experience with a friend from Thailand, who is visiting. He was impressed with the menu offerings and ordered for us. The food is wonderful! The service is wonderful, and it is a genuine that experience. The mango sticky rice is heaven!

This is a very nice, modestly-priced restaurant in South San Francisco. We came in at about 8:30 on a Wednesday night, and there was only one other party there. Usually not a good sign. The food was tasty, well-prepared, and the portions were ample. I had the yellow curry chicken, which can be prepared without spiciness. The service was very... More
