Lively neighborhood spot with a stylish interior serving Thai food & Asian-inspired cocktails.- Google
"For food, I like the steak with peanut butter sauce and the tamarind shrimp."
"I would recommend the pad thai or the curry with chicken and rice."

Really nice place. Good atmosphere and vibe. Food is very good and comes in big portions. Service is fine.

Vegan/vegetarians beware! They give every table puffed rice wafers that are actually shrimp chips; they didn't warn me and I had to ask what was in them (after eating 1 D: ). That being said their vegetarian dishes are decently priced and very good. They have a few dishes that you can't really get at other Thai places that are delicious. But if you want Thai and don't want to worry about vegan/vegetarian I would go to Thai Idea (vegan thai)

Being an visiting asian in the US, we always thought it's difficult to find good asian food there, but boy, were we wrong. This place is extremely popular, and they serve pretty decent food too! Of course, don't expect the authentic Thai taste.

Great Thai fusion. Don't go expecting authentic or anything, but it's the upscale SF interpretation of Thai food.

This is a very reliable lunch place. I always know what my food will taste like and it always comes out quickly. We go here a lot with new interviewees at my job. I really like their penang curry with eggplant, but I've also heard good things about their pad thai. The serving sizes are decent and not too overpriced.

Interesting how crowded it is for how mediocre the food is. I guess it fills up a need for the location. The service was not that great either, the waitress had blank eyes. They had Roti on the menu which is quite unusual for a Thai place, we ended up being served a so-so $8 roti-based appetizer when we ordered a $3 plain roti. The stuffed eggplant was pretty bad but the wok-fried lamb was ok. The Pad Thais ordered by our friends looked uninspiring. The place itself looks nice but while shiny on the outside it appears their health score was 54/100 last year.

The best happy hour you will ever experience. Also, generally good food, a great Gewurztraminer on tap, and a good vibe. I would highly recommend it, particularly given their proximity to City Beer Store, Cellarmaker, and a bunch of other places. Great restaurant! (Particularly for happy hour)

Courteous staff, bangin' Pad Thai, HEAVY PORTION SIZE....1 orfer of Pad Thai can easily be split into 2 and pricing is moderate. Great date spot, but the area where the restaurant is located is bad. Highly recommended.
