Middle of the road Thai

A little cramped but a nice place to stop if you are near Golden Gate Park. The waitstaff is nice, the food is good.

The food here wasn't terrible but it wasn't great, either. I like Thai food with more flavor. By that, I don't mean spicy hot. Just more of the great flavors that Thai food is known for. The place is tiny and cramped.

The food here is delicious, and to be frank quite reasonably priced as well. The knock for the overall rating comes from their lack of customer service. 1) when my friend and I arrived our reservation was no where to be found. When I called to make reservations they specifically said "Marnee Thai on 9th" so I know I didn't... More

I drive from Walnut Creek to eat here or at their Irving St venue. Flavors are the best I've had, and I love Thai food. Prices are a little high, but worth it. Outstanding service. Floors/counters could be a little cleaner/neater.

Such good Thai food! I love having a great Thai place as a standby, and this place is delicious! They have a great waitstaff, and such a great menu. You can tell by the packed house, and devoted regulars that this place is worth every bite, and every cent!

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... 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
