The best place on earth with NO comparison is Krung Thai on Winchester/Forest in SJ/Santa Clara, CA...nothing measures up to it...I'm biased! Told ya!! I had red curry with Tofu. It was good...but only "good"...had it been at Krung Thai on Winchester and Forest in San Jose....it would have been excellent. So...I really should not be writing reviews on Thai... More

The Thai food here is fantastic. The flavors are a little different from the regular Thai place around the city so it's definitely worth a trip over to Japantown. The chicken yellow curry is especially great - it's not the usual heavy sauced curry but it's light with a nice citrus undertone. The rest of the dishes are fantastic -... More

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.
