Almost perfect!

I like my Thai food hot . . . really hot . . . Thai hot. I seldom can convince my server to order my food hot. I had pork kra poa and it was 99% perfect. They almost made it spicy enough. They did fix it when they brought me a small dish of finely chopped peppers (those were... read more

Have been coming here for years. Last night had one of the worst dinners there. The main dish was on the special list, coconut curry with Tamarind, cellophane noodles, shrimp and chicken. It was barely edible. The service was so poor, didn't have anyone to return it to. Got the check and left. This was all before a crowd came... More

Stop by the restaurant or to pick up food to take away. Either way, you'll get good Thai food at reasonable prices from nice staff.

As with taquerias, there are only a select few Thai places in the city that I will trust with my hunger. Marnee on the 9th is always first choice. I've lived in Thailand for 7 years and I still come back here within days of returning to San Francisco every time. The flavors are bold, fresh and genuine, not weak... More

The service was good. The people were nice. The only problem was that, having lived in Thailand for 6 years, I expected good Thai food. We were disappointed. Go to Slanted Door at Peer 1 and get good Vietnamese food, instead. Make a reservation.

Try the pumpkin curry, so creamy and delicious. This place also make sure to get the spice level correct meaning spicy is spicy.

Wow, this was special. Make sure you make a reservation, line is out the door in this small, neighborhood place. Imperial rolls, banana curry (red with duck) and pad Thai were excellent. Service was good once we got started and the price was right. Strongly recommended.

So many restaurants in the world.... so much competition.... How can one hold its head higher than the rest? At Marnee Thai, you feel in another country, the Siamese/ Thai cuisine is so delicious that you forget you are in San Francisco... As soon as you enter the restaurant, you notice the nice fragrances and the small (but clean) space.... More

Delicious food, super fast service and surprising specials. We tried two specials, coconut cakes and banana curry and our favorite lemon grass soup and were impressed.
