I fell violently ill after eating at Koh Samui yesterday. I ordered the pumpkin red curry, bok choy, and white rice and within an hour or two fell ill. I am still recovering from the sickness today. Perhaps stay away from the curry - it was not freshly made. The bok choy also wasn't properly washed. Overall just a terrible... More

My wife and I had an early meal last night before going to the Cirque Du Soleil. We had eaten there several years ago and remembered the good experience and the location was good for a meal before the show. We did not have any appetizers as we had been snacking earlier while spending the afternoon on the waterfront. I... More

We tried this place yesterday, we had Spring Rolls and Chicken Satay for starters. Peanut sauce is absolutely delicious. We had the Scallop Curry as our main All accompanied by a crisp French Rosé wine, which was really good. Service is efficient and friendly, though I hate it when plates are removed when your still have food in your mouth.... More

Great food and a bright space at this restaurant was a pleasant surprise in the business area of San Francisco. Close enough to the ball park to have a meal before or after a game. The take away looked good too.

I have been to this restaurant a few times. Mostly with work colleagues and the food has been pretty good each time. The atmosphere could be better but the food is good.

We checked out Fang and Osha before we styled on this restaurant. Very pleasant, looked clean, with a good menu. We went here tonight with 2 young children (4&1). They were very welcoming and gave us great service. The restaurant had a very pleasant feel, seemed to have a local clientele. The food was very flavorful, good choice, fresh, and... More

My office frequently orders takeout from here. The food is great and reasonably priced. I have tried the chicken in green curry and beef in red curry. Perfectly spiced and good portions. On request, they also offer brown rice in lieu of white rice. They truly offer something for everyone.

I went to eat here in the afternoon but had to go before 1 to make sure that I had a table. The food was really good. If you like Thai food I recommend it

Great Thai food and very friendly servers. Street parking only and that can be a challenge if the Giants are playing. Best to check Giants schedule before going to restaurant.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
