I usually stick to pretty safe options when I order Thai food with the usual pad thai, pad see you, mango fried rice, etc. Other than the pad thai, this restaurant didn't offer any of my usually preferred options. I opted to venture out and try something different instead. I had the yellow curry dish based on the recommendation of... More

We've been here several times and were never disappointed with our meals. As long as you are clear with your taste preferences and ask about the dish being sweet, spicy, tangy, hot, etc. you can be more assured of getting something you'll enjoy. We like the curry puffs, green curry, pumpkin curry, pad tally (assorted seafood), dancing prawns, coconut sticky... More

We ordered the red curry and pad mee kao noodles. It was amazing! We also had the tea. The only downfall was that, the waitress came and grabbed our dishes without asking if we wanted to take the leftovers. She assumed we didn't like it.

Great location across from the Buchanan Hotel! Felt welcome the moment we walked in. The food here is excellent so much so we came back the following week! The puff pastry appetizers were excellent and the spicy basil is terrific. one can't go wrong eating here!

Had a party of 25 and enjoyed the meal. Good variety of dishes and drinks. Service was good and prices were reasonable. Looks and feels like a family run business. Close by Japan-town so parking can be difficult at times. I'll be back.

Returned to Jitlada Thai Cuisine after 2 long years away. Oh yum. Its still delicious and IMHO probably the best Thai food in San Francisco. Yes...Krung Thai in San Jose is excellent, no doubt there, but going to San Jose is a little far for a dinner or take-out, so I ALWAYS eat every meal possible at Jitlada Thai when... More

Our visit here was about as good as it gets. The food was delicious, the service was perfect. The Basil Stuffed Eggplant is NOT to be missed. Nice, quiet, comfortable restaurant in/near Japantown. Loved it!

Very good meal. Under 40 for two with added soup appetizer. Spicy and very flavorful, the music was a bit too calming, funny contrast to the food.

We are staying in Japantown, saw that this Thai Resturant had gluten free options and was right across the street from our hotel. We didn't get pad Thai for the first time in a long time and were rewarded with a special dish. Khao Soi which they say is a northern Thailand dish was outstanding. The lemon flavor in a... More

We knew about this place when we last stayed in San Francisco, but ate somewhere else last time instead because we wanted to watch Sunday night football. This last week we were staying at Hotel Tomo again and this time it was raining so we decided to give them a try for dinner since it's right across the street from... More
