We've been to Thailand and their food was very spot on. Only difference is if you don't specify anything, it won't come out spicy (mild actually). If you like it spicy, you can wing it and up the ante or use the chilis on the table. It's a loud atmosphere and has a hole in the wall feel. But food... More

I come to Matinee Thai every time I go the Academy of Sciences or de Young Museum. Delicious food, pleasant environment and great location. Try the Thai tea. It is more than a beverage, it could be dessert!!

Service was quite slow, but I liked food I had. It's in a great location; we walked from California Academy of Sciences. Fresh Egg Roll (V): It was good though sauce can be less. Noodle and Curry w/Prawns: Wide noodles. It was very tasty. Fried rice: It was delicious. Roasted Duck: My favorite of the night. Red Curry w/Chicken: It... More

I usually start it with the TEA LEAF SALAD which is to die for. Dessert definitely deep fried banana with honey my favorite. All together a gastronomical experience! Plus... More

Since so many of the other restaurants, we tried this place out... It served the pursue of filling our stomachs with food... The service is plain and basic... It is what it is... We tried some pad Thai and a beef dish... They were hot and tasty.. Parking can be a real issue

If you Like Thai Food, don't miss this place... their corn cakes (entree) and their Chicken Tom Ka Soup are the best... Even though the soup is for two... I could easily eat it the whole thing myself... its just to good... try it !!!

Parking can be a hassle but we were fortunate to find one around the corner Restaurant was freezing, the heater had little or no effect but it was fun; the atmosphere was filled with patron eating and waiting to be seated. This resto is highly rated and often praised. Food was good; among the better more authentic Thai cuisine available... More
