It is always nice to eat with a group because it affords one the opportunity to try a variety of menu selections. This Thai restaurant will stand out in my mind because not only is the food satisfying, but it is creative while still adhering...More

The family was exhausted so we did not want to go out to dinner but we wanted some good Thai. This fit the bill! Great appetizers and mains. All cooked as expected with great sauces

Thep Phanom Thai is located in the Heights section of San Francisco in a Victorian building. The Thai food is authentic ( Pad Thai was very good) staff is dressed in traditional Thai cuisine, went with friends and would recommend and go back.

Went for a business dinner and just ordered 8 items to share family style. Nothing wow- just average. Sticky rice was dry and the seafood in coconut was not worth mentioning. Interesting to walk around Haight-Ashbury

My partner and I were walking past one afternoon and an older couple walking by remarked that it was the best Thai in San Fransisco... I haven't tried every Thai restaurant in SF, but I'd dare say they were correct! Certainly one of the best...More

Their food was very scrumptious. The mango sticky rice desert was even better than the one I had in Bangkok, which is saying a lot.

We live in the neighborhood and have been to Thep Phanom in the past and so had every expectation of a delicious dinner, unfortunately every dish was off. The Pad Thai, a Thai restaurant staple was bland and had an off taste. The Siamese rolls...More

I have no idea how we found this little restaurant but very glad we did. (I even thought it was called Thai Thep on some sites). Not too crowded which was astonishing because they serve real good food. Very friendly and modest and enthusiastic service....More

The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and
Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of
the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage
clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops.
While the Summer of Love ended decades ago,
Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of
hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through
its streets can still feel like stepping back in time.
