Me and two friends came for a sit down meal, the waitress was very impatient and basically demanded we order just as we sat down. None of us had been to a Thai before so we were panicked by having to chose something so quickly. Anyway the food we did chose was delicious, and not that expensive either. It's was... More

After walking the Secret Garden & 16th Street steps, decided to have Thai food. It was recommended that we try this place. Had a great lunch and the place was packed. We happened to just walk in and got a seat.

Quite gross! They still charged other foods and only took this item off from the check. They should have given everything free after this terrible experience.

My favorite dish in the whole world is one of Marnee Thai's appetizers: it consists of fresh spinach leaves wrapped around dried shrimp, onions, lime wedges, ginger, toasted fresh coconut, and peanuts, served with an yummy herb sauce. I live in Florida now, but I still dream about the Miang Kum appetizer as prepared by Marnee Thai on Irving Street in San Francisco.

It's expensive to source authentic ingredients but this place does. The food tasted like I was back in Thailand, on the countryside, near a beach.

Very fast service...diverse menu options with tasty Thai flavors and recipes...made for the perfect lunch spot. we arrived early , but the place filled up quickly. especially liked the Thai tea...even thought the service was quick, they never made you feel rushed and gave us plenty of time of conversation.

Discovered this restaurant about 10 years ago through a friend who lives a few blocks away. Now every time I visit SF means eating at Marnee Thai. I have never been disappointed!

Authentic Thai Cuisine made from family recipes that the Grandma made. Very fresh produce & delicious food. Quaint & fun to eat there. Happy & helpful staff. Never disappoints!

Without question, the food at Marnee Thai is very good. It is not 100% authentic, but the flavors are great and the staff is very friendly. The only downside is the fairly small size of the portions, for an above medium price point. If you are fine with that, then this is definitely a place I can highly recommend!

Within walking distance of the Science Museum in Golden Gate Park you'll find the best little Thai restaurant you could hope for. Our server was very helpful in guiding us toward a delicious pumpkin-potato appetizer, followed by three main dishes which the three of us shared. The crispy duck was outstanding, the fish and chicken preparations also excellent. This restaurant... More
