Fresh and delicious Thai food at a very good price. Really enjoyed the food and the service was impeccable. The prawn and mango starter was a great main for me- very refreshing and a good size.

Just a block away form Moscone and they will put tables together for big groups (reserve for dinner). Plenty of choices. Soups were excellent, curry and noodles standard Thai food. Service slow to order and slow to serve. OK if you want conversations while you...More

It’s kind of a hole in the wall; delicious authentic Thai food. The service was good and the prices were reasonable. The location is very convenient if you have an event as the Moscone Center.

One of the best, from the Thai iced tea to the specials. Some Thai places tend to turn on the spices and ssume that this is all that is necesary, but this place concentrates on the food. Worth a visit.

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
