Diner Reviews
  • "Near AT&T park, this Thai restaurant is fantastic. The prices were moderate and the food excellent. Service, as is typical of every Thai restaurant I've even eaten at, was superb. Really a wonderful find. There was even easy street parking!"

  • "I enjoyed taking a candidate for our company there. The food was good and good service"

  • "We started with the sirloin salad which was excellent! The meat was cooked medium rare, tender and seasoned beautifully. The crispy spring rolls were a nice contrast of crunch and savory with a sweetness from the sauce...Then came the SCALLOPS! The scallops with squid ink noodles was to die for! The scallops were seared perfectly and melted in our mouths...the noodles were perfectly seasoned and paired beautifully with the perfectly cooked scallops. We finished with the pumpkin curry with chicken which was also delicious with both sticky rice and brown rice accompaniments. Since we were there on a Tuesday, we had a half-priced bottle of wine to go with this feast, the place was fairly empty and the service was fantastic!"

  • "This place was recommended to us by a friend,so on a recent visit to San Fran we decided to pay a visit. We were not disappointed the food was excellent the service was good the waiters were attentive . The only downfall was the location, it is out of the way from the rest of the city. But the food made up for it."

  • "It's a great restaurant and bar. The waitstaff are dressed in authentic Thai clothing and very friendly. Our server was happy to describe dishes and make recommendations. The wine and drink menu is extensive. The prices are fair and portion size is good. I will definitely go there again."

  • "We dined here for the first time, and I was amazed at the grilled lamb and other very tasty offerings. If you like very salty/ savory food, stick to the meats and simpler preparations..many dishes mix slight sweetness in with the savory. Many items on the menu are not the usual offerings from Thai restaurants--a welcome change. Mango salad was crisp and spicy, and the grilled pork and scallops and curry dishes were all very fine. Noise level is notable when the dining room is full. Good specialty mixed drinks, though slow to appear at the table."

  • "The service was awful, 20min to place our order, food was subpar at best. 20 min for food the arrive and then we had to wait another 20 to pay. The worst part was that the place was half empty the whole time."

  • "We had to wait a long time for waiters to come by."

  • "Overall this was good but we had a bit of a strange experience. We were on the late side and they had a large party but the staff seemed overwhelmed. It seemed like it was the bartender's first day. We had to order our drinks twice and it took forever to get them. The staff, though, is super nice and I'll cut some slack for that. The food quality was very good as always. It was just a bit longer of a dining experience than we wanted."

  • "We used to go to this restaurant years ago and thought we'd go back and give it another try. Nothing has changed, the service is still slow. It took the waitress over 10 minutes to even look at us and we were one of only three tables seated. The food is good, but needs some imagination and the interior looks tired. We won't be going back even though we live just around the corner."
