Went for early dinner on a Sunday. Not the best Thai food I've had, but good. Nice location on main downtown street in South SF. Service was okay, although husband had to ask for his entree when it failed to arrive after he finished his...More

The food is pretty good. I've been to other Thai restaurants that may be better, but still enjoy eating here and is great option when looking to eat in South San Francisco. In the evenings it is rarely busy. Tends to be more of a...More

The restaurant was very quiet and the atmosphere very pleasant at 5:30 on a Saturday. I started with samosas which consisted of a plate with three medium sized vegetarian samosas, cucumber salad, and a green salad. The interior of the samosas was very finely pureed,...More

Average. They show it as "Authentic Thai food". There is nothing authentic about it. It's been butchered to suit the American tastes, nothing wrong with that, but don't say you are authentic Thai when you are not. There is not a Thai person in sight,...More

The menu choices were plenty and easy to read. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. The prices were less than I expected for the amount of food served.
