“Good food, reasonable price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

The place was a bit small and cozy but we came early to avoid the dinner rush. The salon was painted in pink and purple, so reminiscent of the colors associated with Thai silk. They served authentic Thai food, which was served piping hot and the soups were flavorful. Spicy entrees were enough to clear your sinuses but there were non-spicy options for those with a tongue & tummy which could not tolerate the heat, like me. Food was generally good and enough to share, if one was so inclined. Well worth the trip, especially since we had to literally look for it as we drove down the road due to its relatively small frontage. Would certainly love to eat there again the next time I visit San Francisco :-)
