The best thing about Khan Toke is the architecture. The walls are wood paneling and in our area there was a carved Thai mermaid. Patrons take off their shoes and sit on pillows on the floor, though the tables have sunken areas so that patrons can sit with their legs below. There appears to be a nice garden outside, though...

I went there 33 years ago when it first opened, it was cutting edge. Well the owner must be to old to watch the quality. He used to comment to me about other restaurants not being real Thai food and he was right then. Interior wise it is still kind of cool, take your shoes off, sit on floor, or... More

I searched the web for "best Thai lunch San Francisco" and this was high on the list. Although we couldn't find a hostess, and were seated right next to only other people in the restaurant, we were delighted with the food choices and $$! As it turned out, the other couple had been eating here for 30 years...same chef...and they... More

Seriously, I've had some of the best meals of my life here. I moved to Denver, but whenever I go back to SF, Khan Toke is on my list of "must dos." Besides consistently wonderful food, it has a beautiful and peaceful atmosphere that has not changed a bit since the late 80's!

On Sunday, early evening, my wife an I decided to visit Khan Toke Thai House Restaurant. I had been there in 1997 and good memories came to my mind, so I wanted my wife to experience the mystic style of the restaurant. We were asked to take off our shoes, same as it was done back in 1997. Soft light... More

I have been going to Khan Toke for over 25 years. Whenever I am in San Francisco. I love the food, the service and the atmosphere. The food is fairly authentic; which is hard to find in the States. I am very particular; as I have traveled to Thailand over 30 times. Enjoy Yourself!

Most Thai food is great. At Khan Toke, the food is great, but it is the experience that is really special. You are invited to remove your shoes after entering. The staff are in full Thai garb. The restaurant is divided into a series of intimate, fully decorated and gardened rooms, each with space for one to several groups. The... More

Authentic. Indulge me a bit. My wife and I first ate at Khan Toke in about 1978. We were in San Francisco north of Golden Gate Park and went looking for a place to eat dinner. We drove out Geary and saw a restaurant - Tommy's Enchiladas. Seemed good, but when we walked up to the door we saw it... More
