This is our "go to" place in the local neighborhood for tasty Thai food. At times we'll drop in for lunch (several combo lunch specials), or for dinner. The restaurant has been at the corner of Grand and S. Linden for quite some time. Lots of parking on the street. The people there are very friendly, and the service is... More

I am not big on Thai food but my husband is so we went. I am so glad we did. This was the best Thai food I have ever eaten (my husband agrees as well).

We enjoyed the meal very much. I had very tasty beef slices with mango, my boyfriend had vegetables and shrimp. White wine was excellent and the restaurant was nicely decorated, in a modern way.

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!
