“Great family owned Thai”
Review of Thai Nakhorn

Thai Nakhorn
Ranked #23 of 158 Restaurants in San Bruno
Cuisines: Thai
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 26, 2013

We've had several great meals at this small Thai restaurant in San Bruno where my brother's family lives. Last night we were back and had fantastic green curry (the vegetarian version is quite tasty with big pieces of Thai eggplant and fresh basil). We also enjoyed the omnipresent Pad Thai (with a side of sweet peanut sauce), veggie fried rice and other delicacies with very refreshing Thai iced tea to drink. I heartily recommend this place to people traveling solo or with friends and family. The restaurant is not fancy, but the food is consistently good and served in a friendly and casual establishment.

Myself and my wife where staying by sfo airport . We were surprised by the number of restaurants in San Bruno but we love this food.The restaurant is simple the service attentive but not over the top. The food was great we just had a beef salad, pad gra prow chicken and egg fried rice,the rice was fantastic we are spoilt for choice for Asian food in liverpool but this place could rival any going again tonight before we go to Las Vegas tomorrow,don't think we will get the quality for the price

This place possibly has the best pad thai I've ever tasted. The coconut lemongrass soup is amazing too. Service a little slow but not too bad.

We have been coming here for a few years now. Family owned and run; we walk in and are quickly greeted and seated. Water is brought to the table. The server ( who is the daughter) already knows our "usual" order. She even knows it if we call in a to-go order. She has an amazing memory and very friendly demeanor. Makes you feel welcomed into their "home" and kitchen.

Food comes out fast, hot, fresh and filled with flavors. I don't think you can go wrong with anything you order.

Never had Thai food before, don't be afraid... especially here. Ask for recommendations. We always end with the fried bananas dessert. It is so warm and paired with coconut ice cream. One order can be shared, especially after a filling meal. Be sure to leave a little room for it.

Next time you find yourself in this little town, make this a must stop and try. Well worth the stop! :)
