Great combinations of flavorful food, vegetarian and meat. Can't beat the quality, service and price.

Always good, love the food here; favorites are the green and yellow curries and the pad thai. Service is good, there is a large dining room and always a buffet if you are on the go.

Nice clean Thai restaraunt in shopping plaza. They have a large menu. The combinations on the back looked good and reasonable but their pre-cooked already so you can't substitute chicken for pork or vice versa. The appetizers seemed a bit pricey so I didn't bother ordering any. The entrees seemed priced about right for the area. I'm not sure if... More

Summary based on one lunch: --decent Thai food that they'll prepare "non-Americanized" if you ask --prices higher than what I'm used to, but probably in line for the area --good service --easy parking I was skeptical, but had a good lunch equivalent to better than average, pretty authentic Thai food elsewhere in the Bay Area. Indicators: spoon/fork on the table... More

I'm writing this review after seeing how low this wonderful restaurant ranked in Marin. I've been a customer since before they moved to their current location. The food is carefully prepared from fresh ingredients. It's delicious. You can buy a combo plate or order a la cart from their wide ranging menu. Every dish I've had from here has been... More

We stopped by this restaurant for lunch. There were only 3 Guests eating in the restaurant. Ordered from the "Combination Plates" Menu. Only entrees that we recognized where curry and pad thai (which had no option to add chicken, beef, etc, only tofu. We ended up ordering 2 beef dishes and were disappointed. One dish consisted of a ground beef... More

I don't each often in Thai restaurants, so qualify my comments by that. I have eaten at Calgang about 6 times. Most meals were very pleasant and a few dishes disappointed. But the good ones are very good, and make that worth visiting this neighborhood restaurant (albeit in a strip mall). The seating is Uncomfortable. That is the drawback. Small... More

This is great food, in a very convenient (but in a shopping mall) location. If you love Thai food, you won't be disappointed!

The decor in the restaurant is lovely, the seating pleasant and the service sufficient, but the foods here were just average. My Pad Keemo (or Keemao) seems to be different from the ones I had in the past. Instead using the very wide and soft rice noodle, this one is not that wide nor soft. I had to put some... More

The portions are very small for the price. Also, I found three small pieces of meat in my VEGETABLE pad Thai. Not a good sign.
