Not what it used to be – This used to be my favorite Thai restaurant in the city. The reviews from 2004 were very accurate to what it was like then. Now it is under new management, and I can no longer recommend it. The quaint classy arches that used to greet the patron are gone, and the menu has changed to being half Chinese food, half Thai. Worse, the food is really bad, probably the worst meal I actually paid money for, ever. And the prices have risen considerably, probably to pay for the recent remodel. Despite that, the place still appeared to be in a state of disrepair, and seemed dirty. The service was still courteous, and we were given complimentary Thai ice teas while we waited for take out, but that is certainly not enough to offset the negatives.
Theives – This place is shady. The woman who helped me was white trash and overcharged me for my take-out. When I confronted her about the price, she got defensive and started acting weird. When I checked my credit card statement, they overcharged me AGAIN and I had to call my credit card company to dispute it. DO NOT EAT THERE! Or... if you do, pay with cash and bring a calculator to make sure they don't overcharge you!
Do not patronize this restaurant! – Okay, first of all, I read the previous two reviews and I got neither the courteous service nor the hot tea. They brought out the wrong order and then forgot one of the dishes we had ordered. Towards the end of our dinner, one of the employees turned on the music so loudly we couldn't speak without yelling. Worse yet, I paid with my ATM card, never got the card back and this morning awoke to numerous charges using my ATM card. BEWARE!
Good food, cheap prices – I love ordering or stopping in, they are always propt, and the food is always delicious, and the prices can't be beat! Try the curries.
Great : food, service and price – When I first moved to San Francisco I came across this little Thai Restauraunt off of Mission. I looked at the menu and was surprised at the prices, so of course I went in. The server was very friendly and inviting and I was immediately seated. Hot tea is complimentary and served while waiting for the best Thai food ever!! The prices are very affordable and the food is excellent! I have tried some of the other places in SF, but nothing beats low prices, excellent food, great service and easy parking. I have never had to wait to be seated and neither will you!!
