Went at Kim Thangs on a Friday evening. Was crowded but luckily still one table free. We ordered the crab and seafood clay pot. Both were very tasty. Was quite a lot also. Service fast and efficient. Definitely good price-quality.

We went here hoping it was Vietnamese , there was some dishes but not huge variety. Service was slow , we almost walked out after waiting 10 mins for a menu. The food was OK, but probably wouldn't return. The best dish was our starter which was spring rolls , cant really go wrong with those. There are plenty of... More

Stopped in while passing through the Bay Area on my wife's craving for Chinese food, chose based on good reviews. The house special crab was fantastic - great flavor and lots of garlic. We also ordered pea sprouts plus Walnut shrimp and spring rolls for the kids. Pleased with the quality and service.

We went to this restaurant based on the reviews and it was close to our hotel. We got a table right away. We order our usual dishes that we love, so we were familiar with the dishes. What a disappointment. It was like Chinese fast food with no real flavors & not fresh. We are not Chinese food snobs, but... More

Hotel concierge highly recommended, as long as we didn't mind lack of ambiance. Plain decor but an interesting menu, primarily Chinese, but with some Viet influenes. They specialize in seafood, but be aware of high prices for some of the fresh fish. Rock Cod was $24.95/lb with the fish weighing in at 1-1 1/2 lbs. Ergo, the dish could cost... More

Dropped in for dinner around 9am on a Sunday night, had to wait around 15mins for a table. Service was ok and nothing special, but we had a beef egg noodle dish and a beef/broccoli dish and both were very good! Dont get put off by the cheap decor or non-attentive service, the food is the real star here. Would... More

We were walking around union square after a day of shopping and was craving Asian food. Kim thanh had good enough food, not excellent nor truly memorable but good enough. After ordering soup, fish, clams and noodles it cost around 55 usd for two m, good enough value for an expensive city like San Francisco.

We stopped in for some quick laab and papaya salad. My daughter had some pho. The food and service were spot on.

Doesn't look much from the outside but amazing food awaits. When we got there it was pretty quiet but soon filled up. They must be used to it because the food came out quickly and it was really good. We ate it all!!! I had the shrimp and vegetables and wonton soup. So good, fresh vegetables and perfectly cooked shrimp.

Thank Ruthnicole
