    This is a cute little restaurant staffed with the nicest young people who work hard but never show fatigue or anything but loving it and the customers they serve. Food is tasty, somewhat salty, and served in decent portions--so it's a good value. The restaurant is clean and cheerful.

    Simple place with great service and good food. Dinner for two was a little over $30 so good value for the city. Neighbor hood was good too (no homeless). Seems like they also do a good to go business which may explain why it was fairly empty for a Friday night.

    The staff seem to be nice, but this place needs a lot of work. My group was pretty disappointed that there wasn't a full drink menu available and the food was honestly pretty lackluster, especially compared to nearby Thai food options.

    We sat inside because it was cold outside. It was just as cold inside. I know these are challenging times, but heating a dining room is not a luxury. The food was okay, but not exceptional.

    My friend and I ate here before an event in The Mission district this past Monday. We got there early so it was not crowded. Service was good. The pad thai could have been a little more varied in terms of including veggies and (more) meat, but overall it was a satisfying meal. My friend ordered the crispy chicken and that was delicious. Pricing was comparable to standard SF restaurants. Would recommend!

    We visited as a family before the theater and we were so happy with the food, experience and service. All three kids enjoyed the food and were able to try lots of new things. Us adults enjoyed the curry in particular and the sampler. The service was super friendly too. Great value for a family of 5!

    This restaurant was clean but only average compared to other excellent Thai food I've had. I was looking for something more authentic. The spices were very mild on the dishes that were supposed to be 'spicy'. The wine/beer list was just okay.

    On a second visit we tried some different menu items and weren't disappointed. It's definitely not your average Thai restaurant peddling Pad Thai, although it's also on the menu…. The staff are very accommodating and service is good. My only complaint is that the restaurant can be VERY NOISY. In fact sitting opposite my partner we couldn't hear each other talk. Hopefully the owners will take notice and do something about the acoustics.

    Good everyday Thai food with some not so common menu options. The prices are reasonable and the food is good. We started with steamed gyoza and for the main course had a nice Penang curry with chicken as well as a ginger and prawn dish. They were tasty and the portion sizes were generous. The brick walls make it a bit noisy but the staff are good and it appears to be a family run business.

    The best part is the location. Servers were friendly but they bungled up our order a lot. The first glass of wine we ordered was vinegar-y, so we had to ask for a replacement. We ordered Tom yum soup and they brought tom kha. We asked for brown rice and they brought white. Food was also good, not great. Maybe they were having a difficult night but after such an experience during the first visit, I'd hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

    I had dinner with friends on a Friday night, we were looking for some good Thai food without having to wait, and in a relaxing place. Krua Thai was perfect! I got a reservation, we had a really nice meal for reasonable prices, and really enjoyed not having to raise our voices. Will definitely go back for some more delish Thai food!

    Service was excellent and, besides the room being a little too bright for my personal dining preference, the ambience was nice and friendly. The food was excellent, but our salad was way to spicy, to the point that we couldn't taste at all the sweet flavor of the Tom Ka soup that was served to us right after. Besides this small inconvenient, we would still highly recommend this place to friends and we will be back. Curry samosas very phenomenal!

    Food was pretty good and the price was about right. The appearance of restaurant was contemporary and comfortable. However, not sure if the smell was coming from the street or if it was a one-off incident but intermittently my husband and I smelled a slight odor like maybe "wet rag"???
