Delicious Thai with Wide Variety

My office frequently orders takeout from here. The food is great and reasonably priced. I have tried the chicken in green curry and beef in red curry. Perfectly spiced and good portions. On request, they also offer brown rice in lieu of white rice. They truly offer something for everyone.

I went to eat here in the afternoon but had to go before 1 to make sure that I had a table. The food was really good. If you like Thai food I recommend it

Great Thai food and very friendly servers. Street parking only and that can be a challenge if the Giants are playing. Best to check Giants schedule before going to restaurant.

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

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 took a while to zero... 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.

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.
