Diner Reviews
  • "I was in SF for just a week and found time to eat here twice....loved it both times."

  • "Food was fantastic and service was good. I would definitely go back. Red Curry was my favorite of the 3 dishes we had..."

  • "Krua Thai is just west of the busy block of 16th St. We were 4 people on a Sunday evening discussing a business matter over dinner. The dining room was not crowded. Lots of window space in an chic understated decor. Service was helpful and non-intrusive. Shared dinner was delicious. If you like Thai cuisine, don't miss it."

  • "Interesting menu, excellently prepared. Every dish our group had was very good. Low noise level is a plus."

  • "Beautifully, lightly fried tofu appetizer, very good larb salad, and flavorful curries, especially the Pan'ang curry. We will go back."

  • "Can't understand why only two other tables were filled. This place is a gem - no complaints."

  • "We had a wonderful dinner here on a quiet night. Food was very good and the service excellent. Wine list, which we skipped, was well rounded and moderately priced. We plan on returning!"

  • "Krau Thai is located in a very popular part of the mission. However, they're never very busy. I think it's because they're not extremely trendy. The food is delicious without any fuss, the staff are friendly and respectful, and there is no stress of jockeying for a table. I will certainly return the next time I'm craving Thai food or looking for a great place to go with friends for lunch or dinner."

  • "Very tasteful interior space, calm, sophisticated, friendly. Menu was diverse and they were able to easily make accommodations for vegan/gluten free. Tasty, not oily, lovely presentation. Staff were attentive, kind and professional. Would highly rec to my foodie pals."

  • "Had a friend's BDay here. Had a flawlessly good experience. Shared our food Thai style. The curries were particularly superb. Great red wine selection, and was even impressed with their sangria. Ambiance is nice. Also doesn't hurt that one waiter who shall not be named is gorgeous! : )"

  • "I lived next to this place before it became Krua and no one was ever in there. feel like it's a tough location. Went there last night and the food was great! I was pleasantly surprised as the place wasn't very crowded, when we first arrived which had me worried. I feel like this place just needs people to try it and they will return as the food is the best thai in the area(Malai and thai house are sub par at best) and the service was fast and friendly. Try this place!"

  • "Service was good, but we asked if for mild dishes because we had children, but 4 of our entrees were medium to hot."

  • "Love this place! It's a gem that worth the search for parking if you're as crazy as we were to visit the area on a Friday night. Amazing service and amazing food, with beautiful decor. What else can you ask for?"

  • "Great place to eat Thai food. Has many traditional and fusion Thai-style dishes."
    Dined on 2/14/2013
  • "Our whole party really enjoyed the food here. Our party included two people who pretty much eat anything and two vegans. Everyone found something that they really liked and even had a hard time choosing with so many great options. We had tofu triangles, tom yum soup, drunken noodles, massaman curry (1 with vegetables and 1 with beef), and hot green beans. Everything was excellent. We all commented that we wished we lived closer - we would come very often."

  • "The restaurant itself, the food, and the service, are all fine. The problem we encountered was parking, as in, there is none [at least on the Saturday night @ 7:15 pm of our reservation]. If you're walking to the restaurant, by all means, give it a go; if you're driving, well, unless your karma is outstanding, be prepared to circle for a lengthy, lengthy period."

  • "Nice restaurant. Food not that special. Pretty typical Thai food. Not all that exciting."
    Dined on 3/16/2012
  • "Krua Thai provided a pleasant blend of good service and excellent food. The pad thai was deliciously sweet and savory. The Krua Thai sampler platter was a perfect starter at an amazing value. If you find yourself with a Thai craving in the Mission, Krua Thai will certainly provide the cure."

  • "The quality of food and service at the end of the night overcame the problem of locating a parking space in the neighborhood for at least 35 min. The restaurant should have a valet parking and/or recommend the closest public parking."

  • "Some of the best Thai food I have enjoyed in a very long time. The Colored duck is highly recommended and they do traditional Pad Thai very very well."

  • "The food was very good....but the service was horrible! The only time you got a smile from any of the wait staff was when you were leaving, if you asked for any thing they snapped at you. When we asked for another mint they said NO!"

  • "I love their menu approach. You can pick the protein source of your choice (chicken, topfu, pork, prawns, etc) and the presentatino of your choice (noodle soup, stir-fry noodles, cashew in brown sauce, etc)."
    Dined on 6/13/2012
  • "New restaurant with very good thai dishes. The mandaman curry and sriracha vegetables were very tasty. I was surprised about the Riesling wine they had in stock - isn't very Thai - but it worked well with the curry and spicy dishes we had."
    Dined on 5/3/2012
  • "One of the few places in the country with Crispy Pad Thai. Amazing experience (I actually planned an entire trip to San Francisco around getting THIS dish at THIS restaurant. It did not disappoint.)"
    Dined on 4/21/2012
  • "Great ambience and service. Dishes were hit-and-miss. Green curry was outstanding, tasty and good and spicy! The chicken in my kid's sweet/sour was bland and a little tough, though. Good sangria."
    Dined on 5/6/2012
  • "Very nice decor, sleek and modern, maybe just a little too spare, but very attractive. The service was fine and attentive. The food was decent Thai food, nothing spectacular, but perfectly fine nonetheless, i.e., I'm not saying it was bad, I'm saying it was good."
    Dined on 4/14/2012
  • "We had an open table reservation but the waitstaff did not know what to do. They sat us in a corner table but did not bring water or menus for 20 minutes. Everything we ordered was mediocre at best. On open table it appears they never used our reservation… just a strange experience. I live next door but probably won't be coming back."

  • "the food was fantastic, and the price was right, and the ambiance was great. its too bad the wait staff couldn't be bothered. they were aloof and unresponsive."
    Dined on 1/27/2012
  • "We arrived for a 7:30 reservation to find that the maitre d' had given our table to another couple who claimed to be us. We waited for a table. Then waited 15 minutes before being offered water, or having our order taken. The waitstaff seemed to run around, without specific assignments. The summer rolls were good. However, my husband ordered duck curry, but received pork. Food is ok, but service is chaotic."
    Dined on 1/27/2012
  • "the food was great quality: appropriate portions, very well presented, great taste. Somewhat quiet for a Friday evening, so not much atmosphere. I would go again. Had asked for a romantic table and they did give us a very nice one. Thank you!"
