Great food. They are very busy. Offers only beer and wine. I especially liked the Peking Duck. Not a great place to have to wait. No bar.

Authentic Thai food in a little strip center. Fresh items. BYOB corkage fee of $8.00. Very friendly staff. Sometimes crowded but it's worth the wait. Great variety of items which they are willing to customize.

Don't let the old strip mall fool you. Inside, the decor is modern and very inviting. The service is great, they are extremely friendly and service is quick. The food is great. Very tasty, good portions and fairly priced. It's quite busy at lunch time,...More

A hole in the wall in an ugly strip center that is Michelin rated!. Always crowded because food is excellent, and reasonably priced for the San Francisco Bay area. Favorites are Penang Curry, Pad Thai and the peanut sauce on the Chicken Satay. Go early...More
