    Prices were great and decor was cute. They were super fast with service and waiter was very nice. Ordered Pad See You while my friend had pad thai with pawns (no tofu). Great presentation and taste!

    Top Thai of the Bay Area. Get the Thai Samosa and the Dungeness Crab Ragoon for starters. Pumpkin Curry is great and finish a great meal with the Fried banana with the coconut ice cream!

    Cumin Tofu is tasty and satisfying. Firecracker Shrimp has delicious kick. Any meat dish can be made with tofu instead. Tom Kha soup is delish, but don't eat the little bamboo pieces.

    I think this is the best Thai restaurant in SF Downtown. Osha is kinda franchise Thai restaurant so you can see many of them in SF. But Osha on 2nd & Minna St has the best food than any other Oshas.

    I don't care what others say. The fresh spring rolls melted in my mouth and the flavors blended sweet & savory. The pork belly reminded me of lechón but dantier tastier, plus the sauce was spicy warm

    I love the cocktail menu. The Lychee Martini is delightfully light and flowery, with a wonderful kick. The Rama Breeze is fruity and accompanies seafood and lamb nicely.

    Roll in at 5pm on a weekday and listen to handbag house with the cute staff. On Mondays and Tuesdays it's so serenely empty you could bowl right down the middle of the dining room.

    Solid options include the chicken pad thai, beef pad see ew, and pineapple fried rice. Pair your choice with a lychee martini.

    Don't sit at the bar. The stools are too tall and you can't put your legs under the bar, so you have to sit like you're riding a horse Western or sideways.

    Some of the best Thai food the bay area has to offer. This location is a particularly nice location for girls night out or drinks and dinner with pals. Thai Samosas are incredible!

    Love the food here but watch out for the credit card slip when it has % for the bill total, not your portion of that. You could be tipping 30-50% because of their misleading receipts.

    Average and slightly pricey Thai spot. Volcanic beef and Pad See You are the best dishes. Drinks are way too sugary.

    Nothing if you want authentic Thai food. This is very salty, not enough fresh herbs and sauces are nothing like you will find in any part of Thailand. Gross misrepresentation of being authentic.
