Great pad Thai, cold Singha beer. Not your average Thai place. Creative, changing menu. Real good food! !

My husband and I were in the area to apply for Chinese visas. Went there for lunch and it blew our mind. We actually went back again when we went to pick up our visas. Got red curry -- best curry ever. Pad thai is decently good, too.

We were one of the last customers of the night at Jitlada, so when we ordered the sticky black rice with mango the owner came to us saying the mangoes may not be fresh enough any more, but she would try to make it anyway. What we got was THE most delicious dish I have ever eaten in my life.... More

This restaurant is our go-to local Thai place in the neighborhood, and a dish rarely fails to disappoint the customer. They have good salads with fresh ingredients, traditional American staples (Pad Thai, curries etc.) and a surprisingly eclectic group of special entrees. My better half and I are particularly addicted to the Thai Curry Puff appetizer. The staff is always... More

Cute little Thai place in Japantown. Small, fairly quiet, nice for meal with a friend. Enjoyed while in from the Midwest. I think they close by like 9:00 or 9:30 though.

We've been to Thai restaurants all over the world. This is not just the best in SF, it competes with any in the US. Very small, very authentic Thai. We have not had any service problem that one reviewer mentions. Service has been wonderful, consistently. But, no doubt there must be some inconsistency at times we have not been there.... More

Great little Thai restaurant in Japantown across the street from Hotel Tomo. Nice soothing decor, not Asian tacky. Menu covered Bangkok and northeast regional food selections. I started w/the cucumber salad which took me back to Thailand. It is traditionally served w/satay. Next, the pumpkin curry w/beef. Tho pumpkin is bland the homemade curry was tasty. I asked for spicy... More
