The food was good, I expected more meat with the pad Thai. The noise level was frustrating, loud and the tables from other parties are right next to you. My appetizer, a chicken soup, took them 15 mins and arrived later than my friends one. Unfortunately, the waiting time for the entree wasn’t better.
Price was decent and I would go again if I wouldn’t mind the noise level and waiting time.

Did not receive our Open Table reservation (may be technical issue) and staff were cold/dismissive after that. Only two main staff people for the whole restaurant on a busy Friday night. Tried to get their attention for many minutes, even though our table was close to the kitchen. Eventually just got up and grabbed the water pitcher myself. After we finished eating and even after the restaurant emptied they still did not bring us the check. Maybe the had people out but needed more staff! Food was good, but the service won't have me coming back.

Wonderful food and met friends. We arrived early at six and it was quiet and beautiful. As the Friday night we're on a got quite loud, but that's likely to be expected. They needed more white people as the night got more crowded. I would go there again. The food was delicious.

The restaurant was closed for 2 days and it was embarrassing that I was not aware. I even got confirmation texts for the booking. This is a blatant failure of Open table. I had to take my business guests to a different restaurant across the street.

The food was delicious we each got a different entree to try and it was hard to choose between them. The stand out was the duck with carrots and vegetables in a spicy coconut curry sauce. It was a Friday night and as it got later the place was full and many to go bags were picked up in the 2 hours we were there which may have been why service got slower as the place got busy. Main course arrived after appetizers bu additional water cocktail orders were long in arriving. We would all go back and have the duck!

I live local and am really regretting not going here sooner. I want to eat everything on the menu. The signature dishes are so good. Specifically the plummy duck.

Service was not great but they were clearly very understaffed on Valentine's Day, didn't bother us. Definitely going back soon.

I was pleasantly surprised by the restaurant. It was a delightful experience and the food was absolutely delicious. The service was also simply amazing. The 3 of us started with the Lychee Martini and it was delicious. I had the lunch special which was extremely reasonable. I ordered the yellow curry with chicken and it came with a lovely soup, crispy egg rolls and a great salad. Colleagues ordered the Yum Beef salad that was delicious and crispy fish fillet. Everything was exceptional. Not sure why I had never been there before. It was very enjoyable and I plan to return. I have been telling everyone in my network.

It was great! The only thing I would mention is that even though the staff did a wonderful job accomodating us, I would say they were actually "understaffed", hence some long waits along the way. But friendly and like said, the food was great. Would definitely both recommend and go back to.

We had a birthday party for 27 people at Krua Thai. The staff managed the reservation incredibly well, even adjusting the table settings at the last minute as plans evolved. Everyone there commented on the quality of the food, the service, and how enjoyable the setting was. The staff was amazingly accommodating, even with such a large group. They let nus bring our own cake and served it for us in style. I'd go back!

Probably the worst Thai food I've ever had. Menus were dirty and my plate was dirty. My instinct was to walk out once I saw the dirty plate, and I wish we had. The food was bland even though my curry was indicated on the menu as 3-star spicy. Date night was ruined by this crappy restaurant.

The food was tasty, and the Sangria came in a cute wine glass. The service was a bit slow, I will try again maybe in the future to see if they were just understaffed that day.

Great Thai food here and being able to reserve on Open Table was a major convenience. This was a get together of 6 friends, a couple of whom had said they might be delayed in getting there. I knew from having dined here previously that, if one or more of the group are going to be delayed, the managers/owners here are very accommodating in allowing the rest of us to be seated at our table.
We were there on a Tuesday night, and I hadn't realized in advance that they had a special offer of 50% off all Wine and Beer. That was a very nice surprise and coupled with their already reasonably priced food it made for extremely good value.

To experience this restaurant for the first time was enjoyable. It's a local restaurant I can walk to. The food is the ultimate winner; food presentation was good and service was fast.

But on the service side, the staff lacked personality and were a bit impersonal. It seemed like a task to get us seated. Staff should recognize if we are still having our soup dish to time the rest of the food to come out AFTER we are done so our food isn't sitting in front of us cold.

I would definitely come back and focus on the food and ignore the service as I don't expect them to change. It's a business. Serve. You. Next.

It was our first time at this restaurant. We were looking for a place that could accommodate our party of six for an early dinner before the 6:30pm show at the Orpheum Theater on a Sunday. We ate family style and the food was excellent. We ordered a number of appetizers, papaya salad, drunken noodles, red curry, and more! We couldn't have been more pleased. The table was perfect for our larger party and the service was attentive, yet unobtrusive. The noise level allowed for conversation. Highly recommend.

Excellent value, nice ambiance. I came here on a special date, and though it's mostly casual we didn't look out of place dressed up. We had an appetizer, a soup, two entrees and polished off an entire bottle of wine and the bill was barely $50. Amazing for SF.

This was probably the most bland and gross Thai food I've ever had. The curry was super watery and not much flavor. Over all the food tasted poorly. Sooooooo many better Thai food choices in the city.

This restaurant is the biggest disappointment ever considering that I've been to Thailand number of times and I happened to know what is a good Thai food supposed to be.This place is very far from traditional Thai restaurant and Thai food.There is a very poor decor or I should say not at all, very uncomfortable seating ,tiny tables , lousy service and it's very loud .Regarding the food it 's not a place where you want to pay $10 fir a half of flash of mediocre wine and not place for a dinner or a date .Food is bland, unattractive and presented as a very small size portions. It's either too spicy or too salty. Soup was terrible and we both had a stomachache after $90.00 spent there. I would not come back there again or recommend this place to anyone. Unless you want to get sick after spending a fortune on terrible food.
