Love Thai spice! Might go to Thai restaurant in the city. Delivery or eat in quality is always great! Baby/kid friendly as well.

Great food overall —we ordered a wide variety for 4 people and enjoyed all dishes from vegetables, cashew chicken, duck and of course pad Thai. Very good value in a city where eating out is expensive. Service was slow with only one server on a Thursday night but we weren’t in a rush.
So happy to have discovered this gem
In a cool neighbourhood.

This is one of my favorite easy Thai places. The food is reliable. There's usually no wait. The service isn't superb, but pretty solid. Overall, it's a great and unpretentious neighborhood gem.

Amazing food! We loved that all the ingredients tasted very fresh. You have to wait a few minutes for each plate that pretty much lets you know they are actually preparing the food. We all raved about the flavors too! Will definitely be back!

We are locals to the neighborhood and this is our "go-to" spot for Thai food. The service is always pleasant and the food is consistent. Whether it's curries, Pad Thai or some spring rolls, highly recommend Thai Spice -- either for dining in or take away.

It was our third time to include Thai Spice as part of our visit to San Francisco. The Curry Puff appetizer was mouth watering, just excellent. My wife's Almond Prawn entree was perfect. My Panang Beef entree was very good though surprisingly all beef and sauce with no vegetables cooked in.

Great service and staff. Clean and well kept restaurant. Appreciated that we were able to still enjoy many option even though my boyfriend has a strong seafood allergy. They checked with the chef on every dish, made sure nothing was cross contaminated. It was a great food experience with tasty, fresh food.

We found this restaurant on the Open Table app as we were visiting San Francisco and wanted to find something near where we were staying. We both love Thai food, the reviews were good, the menu looked good so we took the plunge. We were totally satisfied and now have another place to eat nearby our hotel when next in SF. I posted a comment on Facebook only to find out that a good high school friend has been eating here for 20 years! What had impressed us in the comments on the Open Table app was that they'd been in business for 27 years! Surviving that long in a very competitive culinary city of San Francisco told us that it must be good and it certainly was. Five out of five stars! We will return and look forward to that day.
