Welcome to iThai, a dining experience not to be missed when in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco. Here, our priority focuses on outstanding food quality, generous portions, unique vegetarian options and an overtly cozy, inviting ambience. According to our legion of return customers, we have achieved this day-in, day-out goal…and then some.
San Francisco, as most seasoned tourists and locals alike are blindingly aware, is absolutely inundated with dining choices up and down the proverbial gamut – from Italian fare sumptuously flowing from the plethora of cafes and restaurants in North Beach to the Cantonese culinary fantasies being fulfilled in legendary Chinatown, it is easy for more ethnic-oriented styles to get somewhat forgotten in the mix. At iThai, however, we don’t let this happen. Here, Thai food fanatics will find everything that puts smiles on their faces, from Larb and Som Tum salads to Silver Noodle, Tim Yum Goong and Thom Kha Gai soups…and believe us when we say this is only the beginning.
iThai’s “Bangkok Seafood Favorites” and “Gotta Have’em Entrees” menu sections summarize what a satisfying Thai culinary experience is all about. Consider, for a moment, our Hoy Todd dish, made with fried mussels and bean sprouts in an egg batter, served with house chili sauce. Or, our Pla-Duk Pad Phed, a spicy, crispy catfish specialty prepared in a unique dry red curry sauce with kaffir lime leaves, galangal and young peppercorn.
We also serve tempting dishes for those with a more adventurous, daring palate, such as Kao Mun Gai Tod, a crispy fried chicken creation served over garlic rice and with a delicious house sauce and Kao Mok Gai, a Thai-style curried rice with herbed chicken originating from the Southern Thailand terrain. We even offer Kao Na Gai, which is chicken in a Thai brown gravy combined with Chinese sausage over rice and fried egg. How’s that for “daring” and “adventurous”?
