Tasty Thai!

Went here for lunch on the recommendation of a friend who works nearby. We arrived just after noon and the place was sparsely occupied, but that didn't last for long. By the time we left there were others waiting for a table. The menu offers many options from appetizers to soups and entrees so it... read more

We met at this restaurant and luckily we arrived early. This gave us time to enjoy the drinks this restaurant offers. I opted for the pineapple filled with various runs. Careful, it's delicious and strong. For appetizers we ordered Papaya salad and Satay. Excellent for both. Our group ordered a variety of dishes, from Pad Thai to different curries. All... More

Recommend only if you have lots of time to dedicate to dinner. Great food but they forgot our sides and we spent 2+ hours to eat. Try the pumpkin curry and the coconut mango tapioca served with a side of patience.

Walked here fo dinner one night based on a recommendation from a local that worked there. I had the lamb chops and a crab roll. My dinner mate had some sort of Pho looking bowl. Food was pretty pricey since those 3 items were $55 with water as drinks. Food was OK.

If I passed this restaurant on the street, I wouldn't go in - the entrance is not inviting. However the restaurant itself is cosy and inviting. My colleague and I had a crazy cocktail each. His was a coconut carved out to hold some concoction including coconut rum. Mine was a pineapple also containing a mix of rums. The imperial... More

Nice Thai restaurant a little on the pricey side. We had the duck and veggie curry which were both good.

The service is wonderful---what you'd expect of a suberb restaurant; yet the sense is not that of a super-elegant place requiring fancy dress. The food----ooooooh soooooo good. melt in your mouth appetizers, tremendous soup, fascinating flavors in delicious entrees. I'd eat there at least monthly except it is a two-hour drive from home, so it is our to go place... More

Came to this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend. We had pad Thai and panong beef curry. Both were delicious, but the beef curry was amazing! It was like a mix of pulled pork and curry- so tender! The staff we very welcoming and never let our water get below half a glass. We also thought it was great... More

Outstanding food, especially the beef and chicken satay. The peanut sauce was wonderful and plentiful. Our server was delightful. Highly recommended.

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
