A Thai traveler once said that the best thai restaurant in San Francisco was Osha. So we pushed the door of the one in Valencia st. From outside, it was difficult to locate it. Inside, we were surprised by the quality of the decoration : simple but elegant (walls), a touch of fun (the seats), some plants. What a difference... More

Great food- used to eat here alot when I lived in SF. Great soups if you have a cold and very tasty sweet n sour options. Also has great salads with mango, passion fruit etc. Stimulates your taste buds and reasonable from a price perspective. Great place for casual dinner with friends.

Like your Thai food? Traveling to San Francisco? Then you have plenty of really good options! Osha offers a true Thai Experience right here in the Mission District. Easy to find on Valencia str. you'll find some nice typically Thai signature dishes on the menu. Try stuff out. Order some items and share. You will love the taste experience. Tip:... More

Delicious Thai food in an elegant setting. Perfect for an evening out with a date. No wait and food was served so quickly.

This was a nice surprise while walking the neighbourhood. Superb service and the Pad Thai was delicious! Ice cold Singha Beer in frosty glass addressed the thirst from shopping. I would go back!

Very average - the food lacks punch and many dishes lack authentic Thai flavours and spice. The Boat Noodle soup was a let down - lacked spice and the pungent flavours typical of this dish. The Green Curry was a little insipid and should be very hot/spicy - but was not. The stir fried beef (graprow) with chilli and basil... More

One of the worst experience I had in a restaurant in San Francisco. The website indicated the restaurant was closing at 11PM. We arrived at 9.30, ordered food and beverage and the waiter informed us after that all will be served at the same time because the restaurant was actually closing at 10 PM. By 9.45, the light were turn... More

Osha Thai is consistently excellent for delicious and well priced Thai food. They have many locations now in SF and they are all great. Tasty food and reasonably priced, you can't go wrong with Osha Thai!

This is my favorite Thai restaurant in the Bay Area! I've been here several times, but the first time was in May. We started with Veggie Crispy Rolls, then I had the Pad Thai with tofu and Moroheiya noodles. I hadn't heard of those noodles before, but man, they are SO GOOD! I can't stop eating them now. They are... More

I haven't had a lot of Thai food, but my sister and my dad (who have both eaten a lot of Thai cuisine) both agreed this was a very great place. The ambiance was great, fun crowd, excellent service, clean place, and I found the food to be delicious!

Staying in Mission District

Neighbourhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighbourhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighbourhoods in the country.
