Very friendly staff, good vibe in the restaurant. Good prices. We had very good chicken Gai Pad. Mas-a-Mun was good but not unique. The squid dish was quite good though squid is usually tough and this was no exception. Still. A good rating. Good Russian Hill neighborhood place. We are here for only 4 days and wanted to eat in...

One of the best Thai restaurants I've eaten at in any city. Friendly, cozy atmosphere. The green curry chicken and the pumpkin curry with prawns were both outstanding dishes.

We are by no means experts on eastern food but this was top drawer. An intimate little restaurant the staff were very welcoming and efficient. The food was varied in choice and tasted totally delicious with non of that back taste you often get. Will definitely go again.

It was a nice quiet place near the da Vinci villa. The place is a small intimate restaurant with interesting choices and good drinks. The people were very welcoming.

We were out exploring our hotel neighborhood while visiting San Francisco when we ran across this little gem. It's fairly small with only about ten tables but I never felt crowded. There is a good selection of food so I am sure you could find something you like. Enjoy.

Food was pretty good--we had just stopped there on a whim as it was close to our hotel. Saw that it had high ratings from a local survey and we love Thai food, so we gave it a try. Food was very good, service was excellent, seating was a bit crowded, even though the restaurant was not full that night.... More

Had a good dinner here, many locals came by for take-out while there. It is good Thai food at a good price but not the "best" Thai I've ever had and with so many good places in SF to eat, you might want to try another.

First meal (larb) was awesome. Second meal of penang curry not so good. I would have gone back to try the red curry which looked great but ran out of time
