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.

It was $54 and I give $60 and they did not bring cash back. Asked the waitress and said they kept it for tip. Food was average. Don't really recommend Curry.

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.

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...
