Our Anniversary experienced @ be my guest THai bistro.
My boyfriend and I went to be my guest last night for our anniversary dinner. People are very quick to complain about somewhere when its not good and not so quick when it is, so I felt the need to write about this absolutely fabulous restaurant....where to start? From the minute we walked in the door and were greeted by a smiling helpful waitress
it just got better and better. We decided to share a starter and were provided with an extra plate, a lovely touch, every mouthful was to die for, from start to finish. I asked the waitress to recommend a white wine for me, which she got spot on. My other half was drinking water, he was provided with a glass of ice and a spoon to help himself to this, another lovely touch. All in all I could not praise or recommend be my guest enough. The fabulous staff made an already pleasurable experience even better.
Now The restaurant offer a 15% discount off the menu (excluding the beverage) to mark the 4th anniversary from August 22 to August 31.
Thai yummy and a cool decor. Went here for late lunch on a Sunday night. They have a very afordable pre-fix menu option, where you can pick a soup, a salad, an appetizer and a entree for around $12. With Thai food, I like to try just a little bit of everything, but dont want to have to order the whole menu, so this was a great choice for me. I liked the curry chicken and the crunchy tofu the best. Soup was also good, but I can't remember which one I chose!! Service was fast, restaurant decor was interesting and trendy. Would be hard to find parking I imagine, but if you are on foot, I would stop in and try it sometime.
Spice up you Valentine's night.
I love their food can't ask for more. Plan to go back on Valentine's night since the menu is perfectly fit for economic crisis. They offer 5 courses with wine for 29.99 per person
Happy hour 4p-6p you only spend $50 for a couple. What's the deal.

Good apps, good service, strange ribeye.
Went there on a Sat. night at about 8pm. The place was fairly empty, save a birthday group. We were promptly seated at a great table next to the window. We were immediately entranced with the menu, especially the "April Specials" and the apps. Everything sounded wonderful, and we were stoked that so many things sounded so good--means more trips to taste everything, right? We ordered the curry potstickers and a shrimp-pork crispy wrap that was fantastic!! We then ordered the ribeye with garlic, vegetables, and coconut rice. The rice was sweet and tasty, the veggies (zucchini, carrot, broccoli, asparagus) were smokily grilled and delicious. The ribeye, well, I do not think it was beef. It had a very, very gamey taste that could not even be covered by the garlic sauce. We both took our first bites and looked at one another questioningly. I cannot explain the taste other than extremely unpleasant--and I grew up eating game meat. We ate the rice and veggies, and left the meat, it was inedible unfortunately. I looked at the menu again, which described the dish as "ribeye" and did not specifically mention beef, which I guess we had assumed it would be. This led to a series of comic speculations on the meat (horse, ostrich, spoiled beef) and a close inspection which revealed a much longer longitudinal grain than beef. Oh well, everyone has different preferences for meat, but it would have saved us $13 if specifics were listed on the menu.
We may go back, but probably for apps that are better described.
Hey member "citysearchsf". Your review makes you sound like an a-hole. OMG, a 10 minute wait to order! The world must be coming to an end! Have some patience. Learn to enjoy yourself. I hope they had their way with your order in the back. Haven't you learned to be respectful with food preparers? And who orders a martini at a Thai restaurant anyway?! Ooh la la. Get the stick out of your angus.
Cute Decor, Slow Service, Cheap Owner, Food good, Martini's are non-existent in terms of Alcohol content..
I visited Be My Guest when it was new 2 years ago (2005). I was impressed by it's stylish look, and friendly staff. Word got around and since then corners have been cut, and the staff has adopted the typical "spoiled" routine. So long as the place is 1/2 full they will take their time after seating you. Waitstaff won't be attentive except to Large groups and the food arrives late.
A year after my first visit (2006) I brought a visiting friend. I thought it would be nice place to go again but I was wrong. Here's why:
- We waited 10 MIN just to order. The others (9 occupied tables) already were served
We decided to order one appetizer, a drink each and dessert for my friend.
-Drinks were listed in detail, including each brand of alcohol and the juice in the makeup of the drink
What I got was ALL juice- possibly a teaspoon of alcohol involved (so they could claim it was alcohol.
The Cocktail list is false advertising in depth. It shows the makeup of each mixed drink, and then providing JUST JUICE! I mixed my drink with my spoon and took a few sips and explained to the waiter and offering to pay their Juice price instead. I merely wanted to pay for what was served.
The manager was kind to listen- but she wanted to just make a buck. I bet she dreamed up this "SMART" idea in the past that if a customer complained to not fix the situation but instead offer to not charge for the cheapest dish unrelated to the actual problem.
She just doesn't GET IT, and that's what happens when greed gets in the way of common sense.
We were offered for free the $4.50 dessert. Stupid! I don't mind paying for a enjoyable dessert.
Just don't rip us off and then offer 10% off next time! There won't be a next time.
I didn't argue-I just paid and left- never to return unfortunately.
You can take my money once. Or you can provide service and get a repeat customer.
been there twice. great fussion Thai food, nice decor, nice ambiance in the evenings. This is not your typical thai restaurant. It is a new blend towards a more hipper crowd /target. A food is decorated nicely and it taste is outstanding. Try some of appetizers/ salads. papaya sald a must and curries too.
Excellent Thai Food with Cool Bar. I went to this place many time. The decor is very nice and clean atmosphere. They have a really good food all the time. Cooktail is great!!! Cool bar!!! . Last time we tried a new special "Cream Cheese Wontons". It was so good. I would enthusiastically recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Contemporary design marks this Thai haunt in the Richmond..
Gleaming white walls, tablecloths and ultra-modern furnishings create a uniform, stylish dining scene at this hip Thai eatery. Specialties include a trio of marinated prawns, calamari and scallops in lemongrass batter and roast duck in red coconut curry with green beans and tomatoes. Brunch options feature hearty Thai omelets served with steamed coconut rice. "Afternoon delight" prix-fixe lunch menus offer quick, tasty specials with soup, salad, rice and fruit.
Great fusion Thai food. Fun decor. We've been eating at this place for quite sometimes, and thought we should give them some points as they are well deserved. The owner (Yui) of this cute Thai place really take good care of the guests. They always have something cool to try out every now and then. So, if you are bored of the normal, ask her to recommend what the specials are.
