San Francisco is a hotbed for Thai food, from buzzy Michelin-starred restaurants and food trucks to authentic, family-run mainstays. The Tenderloin is the best neighborhood to find the latter, from the original Lers Ros (a local Thai legend) to Thai Idea and House of Thai. For more modernized takes on traditional fare, head to these new restaurants in the Mission, where spots like Farmhouse Kitchen and Hawker Fare are whipping up innovative spins on the classics in party-like settings. Whatever your style, San Francisco Thai food ventures far beyond pad thai and green curry.
