This little eatery is decorated with softly colored Thai motifs and several mirrors. It is cozy, relaxing and pleasant. If you choose to visit, give yourself some time to enjoy the excellent food. Try the stuffed chicken wings with silver noodles. The fried tofu pieces with sweet and sour sauce is a perfect munchie to have in the afternoon (I... More

The waitress was unwelcoming. The food came out at different times. Some dishes had to be chased twice. Water requested never came.

Whilst the food was delicious the service really... More

When we walked in and were the only couple in the restaurant, I was scared. However, the lunch crowd quickly files in and we enjoyed a fabulous meal! I had green curry chicken and my husband had the ragnan with beef. The plates are large. So unless you're hungry, you could easily share.

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.

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.
