Ok neighborhood choice if you need Thai food like we did on that day. Flavors did not really meet our expectations on this occasion. We will need to go back and give it another shot. Service was excellent tho.

We had 3 different dishes, coconut chicken soup, crispy chicken over fried rice, and seafood & vegetables over crispy noodles. All very good. Service was friendly and quick. Prices were decent for a lot of food.

I ordered Pad Thai for my first visit. Rather a bit disappointing while my kids went for the duck noodle soup. They raved so much about it that when we came back the second time, I had to be the judge of it. The soup base was very tasty! Perfect during a cold weather as well as if you're under... More

Crispy chicken is always good, the fried rice is a nice compliment to this dish. The yellow curry was exceptional this visit, perfect blend of spices and coconut milk. We have been to this location a few times as it is close the family. This was the best overall meal we have ever had from here.

Pro: Its open till 2 Cons: i mean they fried rice and like how do you mess up fried rice, it was chicken fried rice, it tasted like fish not to mention the whole place smelled like this. It's not that cheap, the prices are not unreasonable until you actually taste it. Hard to find parking

We were a little disappointed. We ordered takeout and as is our custom ordered the medium spicy. We did have a "discussion" trying to place our order but hopefully this had no bearing on the actual order. There was a lot of chilli in the dishes and although able to eat it I felt it overpowered all of the other... More

I didn't think I would be able to find decent Thai food in San Francisco until I chanced upon King of Thai Noodle. I am a big fan of green curries and they did not disappoint.

Had a hankering for that yellow chicken curry with potatoes, onions, etc where you have enough sauce that you can pour it all over the rice. Version here was much sweeter than I was expecting but boy oh boy was it tasty. Exactly the experience I was hoping for. Actual name is King of Thai Noodle Cafe at 1541 Taraval.... More

Favourite dishes are the pineapple fried rice, the pad thai, and the red curry. Good Thai iced tea, as well. This is some of the fastest Thai food you'll ever have. It's not a detour-worthy place, but good.

Restaurant is deceivingly bigger than it looks from the outside. It's also hard to miss with that lavender color. The lavender does not end on the outside, as you are greeted with lavender walls throughout the restaurant. It will definitely, "brighten" up your spirits while you eat. As for the food--they have the usual affair of what you come to... More
