Thai
“Soi” is a Thai word for side streets or alley ways which, together, form the essential life line that makes up the fabric of Bangkok city. Like the city, our menu is a reflection of our love for Thai food from the streets to the highest echelon of a traditional Thai kitchen.
…inspired, influenced, accented, and tinged; anything but ‘fusion’. We prefer to think of it as "Bangkok style” eatery.

We had a delightful dinner at Soi4 on Thursday evening. Our daughter was visiting for the evening from Sacramento and we were celebrating a work-related event.
Food was delicious and beautifully served. Everyone was friendly and helpful.
We will definitely be back soon!

Simply the best Thai food. So fresh. Every dish we ordered was yummy! Only issue was that when we arrived, we must’ve waited 5+ minutes at the hostess station, because because they were really busy! But once we were seated, the service was great. Highly recommended!

The waitstaff were so helpful to us. We couldn't make a reservation for 7 online, but when the first of our party arrived they gave them a table for 7. The staff was gracious and patient. Overall the food was fine, although some dishes (for instance, the cauliflower dish) lacked seasoning although the cauliflower was not overcooked. I would definitely go back.

I've been eating periodically at Soi4 for years and always enjoy coming back to sample the exciting creative eye-and taste appealing Thai dishes that can't be found in any other Thai restaurant where I have eaten in the Bay Area.

Soi Four never disappoints. Love this place and I’ve been going there for years. This time I took friend visiting from SoCal. They loved it. Hostess was very accommodating when we arrived early.
Food and ambiance were great. Our hostess seemed new and she can use some training. She brought the check without asking if we wanted desert.

The food was excellent and the servers were very solicitous and prompt. The price was reasonable.
The noise was significant, at least for my tolerance. Over all it was good.

Our first time at Soi, we loved the modern (air conditioned) spacious dining room and friendly service .
Especially enjoyed the chicken satay , hot and tasty straight off the grill with a thick, not too sweet peanut sauce . The innovative pineapple fried rice was a delicious combination topped with crunchy cashews.
Definitely will return for happy hour, not only for the special prices, but to arrive before the noise level peeks, which made conversation difficult.

While in Rockridge for 3 weeks we ate at Soi4 at least 6 times. We tried many of the offerings and loved them all. The Pad Thai is delicious! This is the best Thai food we have ever had, and we will be back the next time we are on the mainland! You cannot go wrong. The service was friendly and welcoming. It is our favorite place in Rockridge.

The food is great, which is why I return regularly. The service can be off sometimes but it's worth coming back for the food even if there is an off night on service. Great neighborhood place, nice happy hour treats and cocktails.

We had a lovely 62nd anniversary meal for my in-laws. We requested a quieter table so we could talk. The table was perfect - we could hear each other speaking - my in-laws loved the food and look forward to coming back again.
We got there on the early side when it was fairly slow, but once things got busier it was a bit harder to get the waitresses attention. Overall we had an excellent experience and highly recommend Soi 4!

This restaurant is my favorite. Every year on my birthday I travel to Oakland just to experience the food! They did not disappoint again this year. We order a little bit of everything but the service is always great and our table always ready. No complaints here.

Best restaurant in the Rockridge! Have been going there for years. Always consistently good food,
lovely service people, and a great experience. Have also been to several private parties upstairs that have been very nice.
Favorite dishes are the turnip cakes, pad thai, grilled rack of lamb, veggies in yellow curry, etc. Everything is really wonderful.
Good happy hour too!

The mustard leaf appetizer is always amazing.
The shrimp dish with tamarind was tasty and had a nice texture. The skirt steak was less interesting than Soi 4's dishes usually are. Unique flavor is what I expect from this great restaurant.

We had a fabulous meal at Soi4 with a group of 7 friends. The staff were terrific and very accommodating to our needs. The food couldn't have been better, the service could not have been more attentive. It was just right -- from start to finish. Everyone enjoyed their meal and some of us even got some leftovers to take home! Yum.

I've been to Soi4 many times...almost always we order exclusively from the small plates and we've never been disappointed. 2 nights ago we went w my brother-in-law who has celiac disease, and keeping our menu gluten-free was no problem for the wait staff. 5 stars all around, and it's only 1/3 mile from my house!

We went to Soi 4 Bangkok with a group of ten people to celebrate my birthday and had a great time! I highly recommend the ginger martini to start things off right. 4 of us lived in Bankgok back in the 1990's so we are pretty picky. We found all the food (which we ate a ton of and had too many dishes to count) were all very good and as close to the real deal as you expect to get in the US. I would definitely go back and highly recommend Soi 4 Bangkok!

A nice time, we sat by the window and the waitress got to us pretty quickly and gave us great descriptions of items I wouldn’t have normally gone for. Took all her suggestions and was not disappointed at all! Drinks were not bad either.
