Big variety of food, very nicely prepared, fresh and clean ! The personal were very kind and trying to please everybody! However take care with the spicy things, since for them a little spicy, mean a bit more for the ones that are not used to it. It is not a negative thing, it is more an advice ! I... More

Some of the best Thai food we have had for quite awhile. Best dishes we had were duck curry, beef salad, and sticky rice with mango dessert. Restaurant is very casual. Seating mostly consists of long plank tables where you take a seat amongst many other diners. We would recommend you make a specific reservation for a table along the... More

My wife and I were recommended to try this restaurant by the staff in the nearby Phoenix Hotel and we were delighted with everything about this excellent establishment - simple minimalist decor, really friendly staff and great food - I had rabbit which was delicious. This was on a par with some of the best restaurants we have visited on... More

We dropped by for lunch and the place was pretty packed, not full house though. We ordered pad thai, tom yam soup and crispy pork belly, which comes with rice. I would say all three dishes were great but what impressed me the most was the crispy pork belly dish! Avoid this dish if you dont fancy a little bit... More

My boyfriend and I went here having walked past the night before and seeing how busy it was (people were waiting on street). We had pork skewers to start which were delicious and probably not needed after we saw size of mains. My boyfriend ordered the pad thai which was huge and very filling despite only having a few prawns... More

I had lofty expectations for Lers Ros, since it's lauded as the best Thai in SF. However, I was a little disappointed after eating there. I came with my wife and my parents, as they were visiting from out-of-state. While my dad and stepmom enjoyed their meals, my wife and I were not as impressed. I had the Pra Ram... More

Lucky to find this nice Thai restaurant. Location on Larkin in the Tenderloin district probably keeps it off the usual restaurant lists (Michelin, Gayot, Zagat). The setting is minimalist but the food is fantastic. Service was excellent and very friendly. The San Francisco "Eater" column picked Lers Ros as one of the top restaurants in San Francisco, and I credit... More

The best Thai food I've had in the USA! Only in Thailand have I had anything to equal the food at Lers Ros Thai. The service, from a huge staff of young, well-trained, uniformed and attractive Thai servers-- all of whom spoke good English, was phenomenal. The only negatives are the noise level (loud,) the fact that's in an unattractive... More

The food is pretty good, though not great. We were satisfied with our meals and the service was very good. Probably would not try it again, but it's a good deal if you're looking for fairly decent Thai food.
