Lunch

Had lunch here at three different occasions while I was working from a friend apparent that was next door. Both the food and the service was really good.

Nice people and ambiance. The food is not very special however. Out of 4 meals only 3 of us liked their meal. We normally really like Thai so a bit disappointing.

We really enjoyed the fresh food and great service. It was a nice quiet and clean restaurant. If we are near by we will go back.

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

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

Staying in Russian Hill

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.
