Good thai in SF

If you are worried about missing out on dinner, just go to lemongrass and you will not be disappointed. The pad thai and the chicken curry are very nice.

This place smells great from the street but doesn't live up to those lofty aromas. Decor is a bit dated. Ordered the Prawn red curry (8 small prawns in dish) and BBQ chicken which was so dry it was not edible. Had obviously been sat the oven for some time. Service was average, but gave us no reason to go... More

We had beef noodle soup, fried rice, salmon curry and chicken satay were all good. Fried Calamari was ok a tad chewy. Rest was nice.

I guess that I have to continue searching since I haven't found a great Thai restaurant yet. The food here was fine but nothing that you would remember. The menu choices were fine, the staff were friendly but the food was not all the special. I will keep on trying to find something memorable but I would not have a... More

This quaint eatery is nestled on a busy restaurant street with good food and views away from the hustle and bustle of San Francisco.

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. The starter plates were still on the table and our son was still eating when they brought out the mains. We didn't go there to have a fast food experience! 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.

Neighborhood Profile
Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner. Combined with several great cafes, restaurants, antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any visitor would gladly leave their heart in San Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world, and make the slow creep downhill past charming period homes. Polk Street is the main drag in this neighborhood, where you will find trendy bars, cafes and shops populated with locals, but for one of the most charming rides in the city, grab a cable car heading up and down Hyde Street.
