I was staying at the hostel over the road and went with a small group. Menu selection was good and all the meals were brought out quickly. Everyone enjoyed their food and the price!

First of all, this place is not a genuine thai food! The waitresses and chefs are chinese! We went here after a long day around napa valley and it was a close thai to our hotel. We checked it out on TA before going. As soon as we walked in and sat down we were jarred by the blue neon light which meant you couldnt see properly. We also sat near the kitchen and it was absolutely disgusting! Extremely dirty and probably full of cockroaches and lord knows what else. I ordered a pad thai vegetarian took one bite and couldnt eat it because I was put off by the very dirty kitchen - it didnt even taste like pad thai. My husband ordered Gai Yang chicken and what came out didnt even look like chicken, and certainly the bones were way too big to be a chicken. All in all very disappointed, there are much better places in San Fran to go, dont be lured by other peoples reviews as we were!

Has to be the best thai food outside of thailand. The tom kai soup was absolutly 5 star, and the portion was so genorous, that alone would have filled me, but the main course, crab fried rice, was even better. The only gripe was, they served the soup with the main course, so it was a bit awkward juggling both courses to keep them hot, but still 5 stars all the way

The place stand outs wih authentic Thai taste and good quality of ingredients. The staff are very polite and caring. The service is fast. Do not fill in your hungry stomach with the starters- most are fried and the best is still to come. Be prepared for large portions of food. The soups are delicious (deserves to taste if you like really spicy Thai) and the green curry - just perfect! The place has simple outlook, so no need to specially dress up for the visit.

Nice thai food in San Francisco. Worth to visit when you are staying in the neighbourhood. Friendly staff, quick service
