All the standard Thai dishes are done very well at this well-known storefront restaurant in Thai Town, but the southern Thai specialties, many of which are found nowhere else in America, are the real draw. Try the oxtail soup, crisp catfish salad, soft-shell crabs with yellow curry, sea bass with caramelized garlic, and whatever else proprietor Sarintip "Jazz" Singsanong recommends — even the beef curry called khua kling Phat Lung, quite possibly the spiciest dish in L.A.

Foursquare Tips

  • Delicious pumpkin curry dish!!
  • Best Thai food in the city
  • Pumpkin curry and Pad Thai are amazing
  • My most favorite Thai place in the city.
  • They have khao soi, a curry soup/noodle dish from Northern Thailand, and it is delicious and authentic. Also, the pumpkin curry is equally authentic and tasty. We'll definitely be coming back soon!
  • Spicy basil with tofu wasn't great, but pad kee mao was delicious. Chardonnay here was also decent for the price
  • Such good service! They take care of you like family. The food is a couple notches above typical Thai food for SF. Definitely don't miss the pumpkin curry.
  • Arrived with a reservation for lunch and it still took a full hour to receive our food. Poor service overall. The khao soi was very good and different, but ultimately not worth the wait.
  • Stay for dessert. The fried banana with coconut ice cream is excellent (and cheap - $5)
  • Mango salad and kee Mae to die for. Amazing food all the way!! Don't think twice
  • Intimate and quiet. Get the fresh coconut!
  • Pad kee mow
  • Not at all ideal for large parties.
  • Try the mango shrimp salad
  • Golden baskets are crispy perfection. Red curry & pad keemow are delicious.
  • Jitlada Thai on Sunset in L.A. may be the best Thai in the country. Not so much here in San Fran. :(
  • Mango salad, banana leaf trout and pumpkin curry are my favorites. But so far everything else has been excellent too.
  • Small portions, average food
