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

We stumbled in here on our first night in San Francsico whilst staying at the Da Vinici hotel. The food was really good and great value for money. We returned a couple of nights later and it was equally as good. Howver, the staff aren't very friendly although they're efficient. They also returned my tip pointing out at the it... More

We were at a hotel just around the corner from the restaurant and it is favoured as one of the best thai restaurants in San Francisco. Excellent cuisine, prices and portions!!! Very flavourful.... we were so impressed and would have gone back every night while we were in San Francisco. There are a couple of good restaurants in the neighbourhood... More

Was recommended to go to this restaurant by a local - it was good. I was on my own and took the waitress recommendation of what to order and which wine to pair the food with. Both were great! Nice atmosphere and a great neighborhood!
