This is the most perfect Thai restaurant we have been to! Small and popular so you better make a table reservation to be sure there is a table waiting for you ;) The Thai chicken curry puffs are to die for and my vegetarian husband also had the most perfect dinners there. Friendly staff.

This small, cutely decorated Thai restaurant has been rated locally as the best in San Francisco and I can believe it. The menu is an eclectic assortment which should satisfy anyone (whether a fan of Thai or not). We love Thai cooking and the flavors are authentic without being overly spiced. The service is VERY friendly, attentive and accurate. They... More

The best place on earth with NO comparison is Krung Thai on Winchester/Forest in SJ/Santa Clara, CA...nothing measures up to it...I'm biased! Told ya!! I had red curry with Tofu. It was good...but only "good"...had it been at Krung Thai on Winchester and Forest in San Jose....it would have been excellent. So...I really should not be writing reviews on Thai... More

Great pad Thai, cold Singha beer. Not your average Thai place. Creative, changing menu. Real good food! !

My husband and I were in the area to apply for Chinese visas. Went there for lunch and it blew our mind. We actually went back again when we went to pick up our visas. Got red curry -- best curry ever. Pad thai is decently good, too.

We were one of the last customers of the night at Jitlada, so when we ordered the sticky black rice with mango the owner came to us saying the mangoes may not be fresh enough any more, but she would try to make it anyway. What we got was THE most delicious dish I have ever eaten in my life.... More

This restaurant is our go-to local Thai place in the neighborhood, and a dish rarely fails to disappoint the customer. They have good salads with fresh ingredients, traditional American staples (Pad Thai, curries etc.) and a surprisingly eclectic group of special entrees. My better half and I are particularly addicted to the Thai Curry Puff appetizer. The staff is always... More

Cute little Thai place in Japantown. Small, fairly quiet, nice for meal with a friend. Enjoyed while in from the Midwest. I think they close by like 9:00 or 9:30 though.
