Great find thanks to tripadvisor! Food was so good, service was ok only thing is the groups meals didn't all come out together but that's us being picky. The tempura isn't really tempura batter, more like just fried but still recommend the shrimp just not what we were expecting. Yellow Thai curry is fantastic with just the right amount if... More

We stumbled across this restaurant looking for something close to our hotel in Lombard Street. The menu promised "authentic" Thai cooking. Admit we are no experts with Thai cuisine but we found our experience an entirely enjoyable one. We arrived early, round 6 pm, so few guests around, which might explain the speedy service. Both our meals were very tasty,... More

First, the service even though very efficient was far to be friendlyand it is something we really enhoy everywehere we go. Hard to understand given that we were alone in the... More

We ate here on our first night in san francisco as it was close to our hotel. The ambience of the restaurant is nice, if not a little faded and dated in places. We were pleased with the quality and prices of the food. We had 3 alcoholic drinks and two courses each. This came to $60. The waitresses were... More

We went during a slow time of day. The Thai tea was intense. The spring rolls were spot on. The Papua salad was good. The curry was perfect. The waitress was friendly and attentive.

We ate here on Weds 23rd July, a after reading the good reviews and staying on Lombard. We ordered seafood tempura to start, heavy deep fried batter surrounding 2 scollops, 2 prawns and some calamari with 6 muscles as well that aren't on the menu, a cheap unwanted filler, my son spat out a piece of calamari saying it tasted...

I went there based on TA reviews but the food was just far from expected! I love Tom Yum soup and go often to Thai restaurant just for to eat this soup, but this one was definitely the worst one I ever had! everything was wrong with it, I had a feeling that just boiling water was poured into already...

I haven't seen Som Tam on a menu since I was in Thailand so I was impressed and excited by the prospect of some authentic Thai cooking. I was not disappointed. The food was wonderfully spicy and tasty and the menu was extensive. They have Singha beer available. It lacked atmosphere, but then we visited in midweek and there were... More

I ate here with my mum. The Thai Green Curry was one of the best I have had, very fragrant. My mum had a cashew dish i think and although it said spicy, it wasnt too hot for her so she loved it. A great place to enjoy some Thai that you can trust will be enjoyable. Will return next... More
