Welcome to our 7th San Francisco location. Thai food emphasizes balance of ingredient flavor, texture, and seasoning and is constantly evolving (remember chili peppers originally came from the Americas!).

We offer an escape from "carbon copy" Thai restaurant menus. Our goal to serve the Bay Area's most authentic traditional Thai, as well as modern riffs using local fresh ingredients and Thai sensibilities. We offer a seasonal menu that we update monthly; stop by to check it out. Besides delighting the discerning palate, our kitchen takes pride in sophisticated presentation.

Our wine list is a labor of love. It is constantly updated with new, exciting selections that we personally like with our food. See our Wine PDF on the Menu page for a look at what kinds of wines we select.

Come in to relax and remember our staff is eager to make your time with us a wonderful experience. Don't hesitate to ask for advice or special requests.

Good food but service seems like they want to rush you and free the table

I would not suggest the pad see you, it’s very bland

Very tasty meal. Portions were just right. Wait staff was friendly and efficient. Overall a good experience

Delicious food and fabulous presentation! A true feast for the eyes as well as savory.
(quick caution - their mild still has a bit of a bite)

We had an enjoyable dinner here. The food was fine, service was great. We were there at 5:30 on a Saturday evening and the restaurant was quiet. It is conveniently located to go to Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, where we were going to attend a performance. We wanted a medium priced sit down quiet restaurant close walking distance away, and it was perfect for that. We would go there again for that purpose.

Service is usually slow, but it was lightning fast today.

Love OSHA ! The Pumpkin Curry is delicious as is everything else. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful.

A nice place. The food was good; the setting comfortable. Service was slow. I will go back.

We went to Osha for my boyfriends birthday dinner and it was an overall good experience. The food was pretty good, but nothing spectacular, but the service was what really made it a great experience.

I was really looking forward to our dinner. Unfortunately the quality in food has gone down and not worth the price paid. Service is the same mediocre would receive anywhere else. Normally order the Volcanic Beef. The sauce on the beef appeared very oily and odd looking. The beef was drowned in sodium.
Overall I feel they’ve lost their touch with quality dishes..

This was a great choice for a business lunch during a busy conference. Only complaint was that it took a long time for everyone to get their meal...10-15 mins between first plate and last, which is always a little awkward. But as it was a very busy time it was not that big a deal. The food was excellent. Would definitely recommend.

3.0Dined on April 12, 2018

My least favorite part of the meal was the server telling me "these ones are good drinks for ladies and these ones are good drinks for men" as if it's 1950 when all I asked is if the bourbon-orange cocktail was too heavy on the orangey flavor (because if that was gonna be the case, I'd rather just have straight bourbon). Doesn't this guy realize he's in San Francisco in 2018 and he's serving a very obvious queer couple? Seriously. Anyways, the food was 50/50. The yellow curry was watery and the potatoes in it were halfway raw/crunchy. But the Pad Thai was good and the "man's cocktail" I ordered was decent.

The restaurant did not have a table ready for our reservation. We ended up sitting at a fold out table jammed between two standard tables. We arrived on-time for our reservation.

Simply great! We had 9 for Dinner, service was great and food brilliant

Osha should update their website to let people know that they are no longer on 2nd street. We walked to 2nd street, only to find out that Osha moved to 3rd street. we wasted 20 minutes just having to re-route and find the new location on 3rd street. very inconvenient, and we had less time to eat and socialize because most of us had to get back to the office for meetings. food was great, as always

3.0Dined on March 4, 2018

Overall a good food experience. Our server was unhelpful and only wanted to "take the order " and move to the next table, questions were not welcomed I suppose because they took time. Border line rude actually. The experience was okay but not one that would cause us to make a return visit.

We did not enjoy our meal at OSHA Thai at all, mostly because of the service. The waitress seemed to be in a hurry and hardly had time for pleasantries. A person from the kitchen came and placed the food in front of us. The food was extremely salty and the lettuce wraps had no taste at all. I would not go back nor would I recommend this restaurant to anyone else. An evening out should be pleasant.

One of the worst restaurants in San Francisco! Wouldn't you think a Thai restaurant could make Pad Thai?!

Lovely place but noisy and poor service. We could not get a server to come to our table.

3.0Dined on December 15, 2017

Portions are too small. Their "entrees" are more like appetizers. The large plates are for show, as only the middle section of the plate is filled with food, leaving a rim around the food that is at least as large (if not larger) than the part with actual food.

Their staff seems to be unable to take down the correct details for the reservation. We had reserved at a specific time and double checked it. Received a call from them to confirm on the day of the event to be told a different time. They kindly corrected on their end, as our emailed confirmation was originally correct. When we arrived on-time to check in with the host, he gave an incorrect total count. Again, different from our emailed confirmation. Since his count was actually higher than our party size, this was just a minor mistake. But it seems like they are unable to get the small details right.

Too spicy and too expensive

3.0Dined on November 20, 2017

To expensive for the amount of food you get.
Portions are very small. Sad that they moved from 2nd Street and raised their prices and made their dinner dishes smaller.

5.0Dined on November 20, 2017

Good for a group lunch or a business meal on a weekday

Unexpectedly good!!! My husband, my friend and I went there for an early dinner. The staffs were friendly and the most important thing is, great food! We'll definitely go back!

When we arrived they could not find the reservation made through Open Table, even when I showed it to them on the phone. They asked us to eat in the lounge at a low, uncomfortable table in a different building. We refused and asked to wait on a table as there seemed to be several available. The hostess still asked us to go to the lounge to wait even though a perfectly good bar was available right there in main restaurant. When we finally got to the other building's "lounge," the waitress could not tell us if we would be notified when our table was ready. We finally ordered drinks to wait, but we were called to our table just as our drinks arrived (about 10 minutes). We made the long trek back to the other building and were finally seated at a bad table by the entrance. But we could not hear each other because the noise was SO unbelievably loud. The food arrived about 5 minutes after ordering and was good, but a little rushed. Overall, this is NOT a restuarant to which I will return. Incompetent service cannot be improved by relatively good food.

I've been here 3 times and this is turning out to be one of my favorite Thai dinner spots. Whether its a girls night out, date night, business meeting, or someone is town visiting and I want to show them a cool spot that's affordable, I bring them here.

its such a good spot with a nice ambience, great location, minutes away from shopping and also great Thai food that you cannot go wrong with! I highly recommend.

I have been to this location a number of times and am aware that it is part of a small chain of restaurants. It is usually quite good. I realize we were here on a busy night, but I don't know when I have ever been to this restaurant when it wasn't busy, so I am not sure if that is a contributing factor to our service on this night or not.

We had to ask multiple times to get water refills, it took a very long time to get drinks, some of which never came, some which came after the meal. There were 5 of us and the main courses came one at at time 5-8 minutes apart over the course of 25 minutes. The servers were nice enough, but this is not acceptable, even for Asian food, which does often come out at different times as the dishes are ready. The question above asks if I would recommend this restaurant to a friend, but a binary yes/ no option is not sufficient. Normally I would, but after this experience, I might reconsider. Open Table: Please consider giving a third option here of maybe/ it depends.

Nicely decorated interior, friendly staff. My only complaint is the dishes were super salty. The taro pot and green curry with roti were delicious, but salt content was preset.

Cannot recommend for lunch. Too slow. Our food wasn’t good. Didn’t enjoy simple dishes like fried rice. My broccoli was cold and the onions hadn’t been sautéed. They were raw.

4.0Dined on October 13, 2017

A good variety of options on the menu. Great drink list! Good for a date night or just casual dining.

All the dishes are too sweet, there seems to be extra sugar added to everything.

Really good Thai with nice atmosphere.

The service was lousy. Water and ice tea glasses were never refilled . One order of sea bass arrive 15 minutes after everyone else was served so three of us ate cold food when the fourth meal finally showed up. That really did not matter much as the food was very pedestrian and unappealing. I will never go to Osha again and will never recommend it.

The place is ok - the duck roll was so so. The clay pot rice was large and good. The wine selection is limited.
