Don't judge a book by its cover...went here for dinner with my husband as we both fancied some Thai and this was close to our hotel. The food was so tasty with generous portions and a reasonable price. It may be small but if you arrive for an early dinner you won't have to wait for a table. We arrived... More

Got into San Fran late Friday night and wandered in after 10PM; only 10 tables in the place. But all the meals were great! Lots of variety especially the noodle dishes. Great find!!!

Completely authentic (and good!) Thai food in the center of town. It's very simple inside, but there are a few tables, the food arrived super fast, the meals were large and the price was great. I'd definitely return there for another meal.

Saw this place across the street from my hotel and just wanted a quick bite for lunch. Ordered the chicken cashew nut and vegetables with rice and enjoyed the generous portion. The staff were helpful and the cafe was filled with locals and tourists.

We discovered Chabaa on our last trip to San Francisco and looked forward to enjoying their food again. This is a tiny place with good flavors. On our servers recommendation, we ordered the Red Curry with Roast Duck. She said the Roast Duck was her favorite and since we love curry we opted for the curry with duck. The Red... More

We wanted a change from eating regular cuisine so chose Chabaa after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. This bustling little place had a great selection on the menu. My husband and I decided to share Chicken Pad Thai and Green Curry Shrimp. Yummy! The service was great and the staff were very friendly. Our order arrived promptly as did our... More

This little tiny Thai restaurant is sooo good! I would recommend it to anyone who likes great Thai food! They were very busy and we lucked out and got a table real fast but there were many people that had to wait a bit for a spot to open up. I'd definitely go back next time I'm in town!

The food here was standard Thai, pretty good with a wide range of options. However, I showed up to the restaurant around 7.30pm with 3 friends waiting for 2 more who were 5 minutes away. Although a small restaurant, there were clearly about 4 open tables and no one else was waiting to be seated. However, they insisted their policy... More
