Great ambience with average food

Very rich and unique ambience. Very polite staff. Take off shoes at entry and be ready to "sit down" and enjoy. Food is average for a Thai place. We ate a good Papaya salad and noodles. The beef kebab was chewy and overdone. Taste was good but meat was destroyed. Will definitely come... read more

From the beautiful decor, to the menu, to the staff - this is as authentic Thai as it gets. As is usually the case when dining at ANY Asian cuisine restaurant, service was a bit spotty. But everything else made for a GREAT dining experience. NOTE: There are NO Domestic beers available.

Yum!! A cool spot with beautiful Thai decor and even better food. The service was polite, attentive, and quick. The pad thai was perfection!

This is an excellent restaurant with delicious sauces and varied options. The food is not doctored for American palettes. The service is also good. We were there for lunch, which was very reasonably priced! They have seating on the floor with room to drop your legs down under the table (into a hole in the floor). I preferred to sit... More

Twenty years ago Khan Toke was the hottest Thai restaurant in town. We probably hadn't been back in ten years. Sadly the years have not been kind to Khan Toke. No surprise. Few places can stay on the hot edge for that long. It's not that Khan Toke is bad. It's just uninspired. Has the kitchen lost a step or... More

This place ticks all the boxes. The food here is amazing, I'm particularly partial to the beef Musaman curry. The service is brilliant and feel of the restaurant lends itself to a romantic meal, family get together or just a feed with friends. The wine list is comprehensive with something for everyone. I've been to many Thai restaurants up and... More

Khan Toke is my most fave Thai restaurant in SF. Not because it has the best Thai food, but because of the entire dining experience. This is like no other Thai restaurant I have been to. It looks to be a converted house. The restaurant has been in business for over 35 years. You first take off your shoes as... More

Khan Toke was such a unique beautiful experience. My boyfriend and I went on a Sunday night after biking around San Francisco. We were led to a hand carved wood table, so beautiful and cool to look at. The ambiance was cozy and romantic, although I could also see coming here with a bunch of friends. The food was great!...

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
