Inman Square suffers of a lack of great Thai, which means this spot gets tons of foot traffic. The surprise? It’s actually authentic. Fish cakes, brown sugar mango curry, Thai chili fish and honey pork are some of the lesser-seen dishes you’ll do a double-take over. Even the more traditional entrees are eye-opening, especially the country style pad thai and the drunken noodles, which are refreshingly spicy. The atmosphere is welcoming and the staff gracious, which means you’re more likely to linger over your dish of fried ice cream.
