“Cozy authentic Thai on Haight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

Our tour bus guide narrator, Doug, who lives in the neighborhood had recommended this quaint little place. Had he not pointed to it when we passed it on the Big Bus hop off hop on tour (best one btw), we might have missed it. Glad I paid attention. It's actually on 2nd floor of a 3 story historic Queen Anne style subdivided home/building. Anyway, It's hard to find authentic Thai food made by Thai cooks (no offense to the Vietnamese and others who attempt to get Thai flavors just right). I am picky as I compare all Thai food to my own Thai mother's home-style cooking. Dinner for two with a glass of wine and a beer for my hubby cost us a whole $48 which is reasonable for this over priced city. The waitresses are Thai and even wear traditional Thai dresses (not that it matters) but adds that touch of Thai ambiance to the dining experience. The place is more shabby-chic than upscale or fancy in decor, but the good food, prices, and location goes a lot further than fu-fu decor in my book any day. Chicken satay and peanut sauce is the real deal. Enjoyed our meal very much.

“Good food poor service.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013 via mobile

We visited this restaurant at 3:30 p.m. on a Monday. At this time they were very slow. The food was above average but the service was not that good. We received our Chicken Satay but were not given plates and never received them even after making a request so we dripped the peanut sauce all over the table. We never had our water refilled nor did the waiter stop by to ask us how we were doing. This was baffling as we were pretty much the only patrons in the establishment.
