Love, love love Jitlada! – I have discovered Jitlada some time ago and I believe it to be the most incredible Thai place in town. Every visit is marked with excellent food served in a warm, inviting environment. Anyone visiting has got to try the chef-special mango salad!!!
Are you kidding? – If this is the best Thai in San Francisco...that is very disappointing. The pad thai was probably the worst we've ever had. Tasted like box noodles with ragu pasta sauce. The ginger shrimp egg rolls were tasty, but didn't make up for a below average meal. Would not send anyone I liked to this restaurant.
consistently excellent – my favorite,always fresh,great presentation and friendly owner. Recommend going earlier than later as they could use an extra server when it gets later. Never disappointed after numerous visits, I bring all my Thai enthusiasts here
Best ever – Jitlada has some of the best Thai food I have ever had. The quality and presentation of the food should put some of the more pricey Thai restaurants to shame. Chef Pai and her staff has created a feeling of an extended Thai family.
Excellent and authentic – Very courteous service. Artistic presentation of every dish. Try soup (Tom Yum Koog), Crying Tiger Salad, Red Curry Duck. Mango sorbet in a rice bowl makes a wonderful desert.
Don't believe average rating below, the customer was obviously disappointed with chef Pai not visiting her table. Chef Pai usually greets people she knows, i.e. return customers who come back again and again.
Average Thai Restaurant – I went there for the first time a few nights ago after seeing a high rating here on Citysearch. I was at first delighted with the appetizer we ordered (Ground chicken and prawns in sleeping bag), but was very disappointed with the main course dishes. The black sticky rice was great though. I thought the service was good, except for the fact that the Chef came by each table except for ours. Opps! This restaurant was mediocre (5 out of 10) and I was naturally disappointed after seeing such a high rating.
perfect attitude adjustment! – Chef Pai is wonderful- she creates beautiful dishes that are as creative as they are tasty- and she comes out to speak with each table. If she does BEFORE your meal- ask her what she reccommends-then order it! You won't be dissappointed! The service is unbelievable. There aren't many tables - so you always get individual attention. My advice is to try a bunch of the salads, soups and appetizers so you can taste as many things as possible. If you have to get one thing...the MANGO salad....MMmmmmm. I ordered 2 last time I was there(blush) It's also a great value for the price.
All Round Excellence – I have dined at many fine restaurants in San Francisco, but Jitlada superceded all my expectations. The service was excellent and the food was Finger-Licking-Fantastic!!! This by far has been the BEST THAI food I have ever eaten. Probably the best food I have ever eaten. I cleaned my plate with my fingers. The coconut sauce was sooooooo delicious my eyes rolled backwards with every spoonful. Every spoonful was accompanied by a "Hmmmmmmmmm!" Desert is a must - Fried bananas w/ coconut ice cream and the black sticky rice. Hmmmmmmm!! My compliments to Chef Pai....
Extremly Enjoyable!!! – I've been to many Thai Restaurants in San Francisco and Jitlada is the best so far. The waitress there are very friendly and attentive. All the dishes they served were fresh, delicious, and beautifully presented. Will always return there whenever I crave Thai food.
Warm, Wonderful & Delicious! – Since we discovered Jitlada years ago we have strayed once or twice and always regretted it! You just can't improve on perfection! Chef Pai has created a lovely oasis full of delicious aroma and incredible flavor...and we thank Her so much. We once ended up with 16 guests...I called ahead...we were seated promptly, served beautifully and Pai ended up with 16 repeat customers/fans. My nephew of 3 years was charmed by the Dancing Prawns and managed to finish one! We have tried the entire menu over the years and found everything to be a winner.
