  • Entrance is at SE corner of Mason & Ellis
  • The best authentic and ambitious Thai food in SF. It reeks of fish sauce from around the corner in the best way. Standouts: mushroom hor mok (curry terrine) and khao soi (chicken curry noodles).
  • Don't believe the hype. This place is meh. Salad was SALTY. Chicken wings were RAW. Horrible execution.
  • Seekers of authentic Thai flavor will like Kin Khao. Expect housemade curry pastes and chili jam and unusual offerings like the saeng-wah salad, a ceviche-like shrimp dish over ground catfish.
  • Start with the mushroom hor mok or hot wings. Try the green curry with rabbit or spicy noodles. End by paying with Cover to split your bill without the wait.
  • Penang curry was spicy and delicious, pair with sticky rice!
  • Michelin star restaurant with no frills -- for the beans and squid dishes, you must love spicy food! Don't skip the rice throughout the meal. Black cod curry was my favorite.
  • One if the best Thai restaurants I've been to. The Yaowaraj Noodle dish is awesome. And check out the Pretty Hot Wings appetizer.
  • This Thai spot takes it's curries seriously. The green curry rabbit has the food world in a tizzy. Come for lunch since it seems they've axed their late night hours.
  • If you think this is authentic, you don't know anything about Thai food. Go to Sai Jai Thai/Lers Ros if authenticity is what you're looking for. Or better, Jitlada in LA. That's the best one!
  • It's a block off the main drag (on the back side of the Parc 55 Hotel), but it serves the best Thai food in the Bay Area. The menu is extensive but be sure to try their warm black rice pudding!
  • Mushroom hor mok and sai ua (grilled thai pork sausage) lettuce wraps are on point. Skip chicken fat rice and black rice pudding dessert; nothing special.
  • Look for the Hua Hin Beach (dark rum, coconut cream, stout, lime, kaffir lime, salt) and the Kafe Mao, which complements the more spicy dishes with mezcal, cassis, coffee and cream.
  • Try the Pretty Hot Wings - so good and tasty!
  • Comidas bem temperadas e apimentadas. Delicia!
  • Comida bem temperada. S pra quem gosta de pimenta estilo mexicana. O prato que comi estava levemente apimentado. Adorei!
  • Chicken noodle and fried duck egg
  • Great green Papaya salad - beware spice-a-phobes, it's pretty hot Pork belly to die for, don't forget the sticky rice!
  • Everything was nasty. Worst service evaa
  • This place is not authentic. They specialize in over salted dishes. Use the same sauce for everything
