“Great Thai food near Parnassus”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

After a long day at UCSF my husband and I visited Marnee Thai after hearing about it from a friend. The food was fantastic. The location was central. The only down side was a pretty cramped space with uncomfortable seating.

We arrived at a few minutes past 5pm (highly recommended if you want to get a table) and ordered straight off the specials menu. I had a banana (plantain) curry with shrimp that knocked my socks off. My husband had some sort of a pork curry that was good too but mine was better.

Tip: Parking sucks. Get there early and ask for a table towards the back so you don't have to look at the person waiting to take your seat.

“really good food”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

we actually went here twice on our week long trip. solid thai food with reasonable prices. the only issue we had was even for take-out, it took a long time as they are super busy, so either call in your order early or make a reservation.

“Very good Thai Food”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

This is definitely one of the better Thai Restaurants I have been to. Each dish was well prepared, tasted different than the last and was not too spicy for me.

“Always great!”
Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

Every time (twice a year or so) we come to the city we need to get our Marnee Thai fix.
The food is always fresh and flavorful, and this time was no exemption. The vegetarian Pad Thai was the best I have ever tasted. We also had Praram chicken that also very tasty. Steamed rice and 1 Thai iced tea for $27.00. So for less than $32.00 we had a perfect dinner for two.

“Delicious food”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

This place came recommended by someone who loves authentic Thai food and Marnee Thai fit the bill. The food was delicious! Tables are close together. Service initially was a little slow in taking our order, but once we did order, the food came out quickly and the server checked on us regularly. The decor was pleasant and clean. The place was busy and bustling---good city atmosphere. Definitely a repeat!
