Located on the edge of Chinatown, near the Financial District, this mom & pop Thai restaurant offers tasty, high-quality Thai good. I had the Pad Thai with duck--delicious. My son Tom Ka soup woth prawns--yum. No liquor license. Sidewalk tables available.

First time ever in SFO and very hungry. All places in the area looked extremely crowded, so we picked the only one which seemed to have free tables. We weren´t disappointed. We had a nice fried rice and a curry. Service was very fast.

Very good food. Do try the ice tea and spring rolls. Little crowded at times but quick service will make your life easier. Curries are very unique flavored and a must try.

Great Thai, lunch spot (only open Mon-Fri). No liquor license but patrons have been known to BYO. All the usual Thai favorites with perhaps a bit more spice (which I like) than the dumbed down spots catering to the faint of heart & tongue.

At first glance, this unpretentious restaurant may not even warrant a second look but for a very affordable price, good food was delivered! I ordered the Panang curry and mango rice - delicious. If memory serves correctly, alcohol can be bought in a small shop...More

We whipped into this restaurant for lunch and it turned out to be a great find. Excellent quality and flavourful food (chicken all white meat) with large helpings for a great price. The restaurant was clean with fast service. We would gladly return.

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
version of Wall Street. The rush of business people
make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of
life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the
narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of
historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,
