Definitely one of the better Thai places in the Bay Area-
The head chef and sou chef from San Francisco's beloved Thai House Express on Larkin in SF have left and brought their adventurous menu across the bay to Oakland, with many items not typically available in your standard American Thai restaurant--this is always a big plus in my book, as over-played, over-sweet pad thai, green curry, and satay quickly get tiresome. There are items on offer here that I have only seen in the tropical kingdom, so gratifying to know that I can get authentic kao mun gai just a few miles from home. Tuck into some kao soi, bah mee moo daeng, or kao kha moo, authentic and very tasty, great appetizers as well--aroi mahk! Hopefully they will get beer on the menu soon.
Highly recommended Bangkok-style fare--Kor fahk kham chom hai por krua duay
