I am writing a review after my second visit. I had one of the best meals ever here recently. The food is excellent: creative preparations, fresh and delicious. I do not like conventional potato salad, but Shinmai’s version of it is just remarkable—with slightly pan-fried/roasted baby potatoes and furikake aioli. I’m also a big fan of the mussels in the curry broth. And the ramen is to die for! It’s a great place to share and taste a host of dishes, from the specials to the permanent ones on the menu. I really love this place. My service this time was outstanding; the waiter I had the first time I visited put a shadow on my visit. I’m really glad to have given Shinmai a second chance. More

Love Chu for lunch: regular menu is still available and they are happy to modify dishes (we usually request lower salt). Chu offers better quality ingredients in smaller portions, far preferable to the greasy cheap slop most EBay Chinese places offer. Excellent dumplings - don't miss the oxtail dumplings if you love this hard-to-find meat. Gan Shao lamb, Beef with Silken Tofu, and Buddha vegetables are excellent. Dan Dan Mein, Crab Sauce Prawns, and Hot/Sour soup are very good altho Chu likes to add edamame soybeans to these dishes, sometimes too many. But the dishes are still tasty, especially the Hot/Sour which is a superb version. Teas are very high quality and excellent; service is top-notch and restaurant is blessedly quiet. More

Neecha Thai Cuisine was established in 1988 at the corner of Sutter and Steiner in San Francisco. Neecha’s mother, Saranya, designed a large menu based on her unique Thai-Chinese-Isaan background. Half of the menu was dedicated to vegetarian offerings that Neecha’s vegetarian grandmother had once enjoyed.

Now, over a quarter of a century later, Neecha Thai in Oakland is a blend of three generations of delicious Thai cuisine. From favorites at our flagship restaurant to creative new dishes, we offer rice and noodle dishes with an emphasis on balance, flavor, and health. Most dishes come with vegetables or salad and a slice of fruit to round out your meal, and we also offer white jasmine rice, brown rice, sticky rice, and quinoa.

Our produce is purchased fresh daily and we do not use flavor additives like MSG. When you dine with us, you can count on a fresh and flavorful meal!More

What a pleasant surprise. Must have walked by this little gem for past seven years and missed it somehow. It will now become our new fav 'go to' place. It's very popular on weekends so we'll do midweek as often as possible. More

I am writing a review after my second visit. I had one of the best meals ever here recently. The food is excellent: creative preparations, fresh and delicious. I do not like conventional potato salad, but Shinmai’s version of it is just remarkable—with slightly pan-fried/roasted baby potatoes and furikake aioli. I’m also a big fan of the mussels in the curry broth. And the ramen is to die for! It’s a great place to share and taste a host of dishes, from the specials to the permanent ones on the menu. I really love this place. My service this time was outstanding; the waiter I had the first time I visited put a shadow on my visit. I’m really glad to have given Shinmai a second chance. More

I had read about this restaurant from local newspapers and I was curious to try it. I was not disappointed. The food was very good, the ingredient super fresh and the whole experience was unlike any Vietnamese restaurant I had tried before. There are options for everyone, from shy to adventurous (frog legs and pig ears in my case). Service was very friendly and so were the prices. I'll be back More
