Yummy in the Tummy! – Osha is so good. I cannot get enough of it. Too bad that parking is horrible or elsewhere I would go there until I'm sick of it. I love their crab fried rice. That is my favorite because it's not as good elsewhere. Their pineapple fried rice is good too. Their noodles are also good. Everything is good so you just gotta try it. They don't take reservations so if you go during the busy hours, you'll probably have to wait a while.
really good majority of time – osha is hoppin, and the food is good most of the time. i mean, don't you know about this place yet? jesus.
Love the Late Night? – I was only introduced to this place a few months ago, but I've definitely become a fan quickly. This place has been a haven many times on late nights. There are few late night restaurants that I really enjoy... I mean, sure there's Mel's Drive In not that far away, but Osha's service and food is way better. And you know the late night crowd loves this place because so many people arrive right after the 2AM cut off. You might have to wait for a table, but it's never more than 15 minutes. This places turns tables pretty fast. If you go, try any of the curries or noodles, they're delish!
Late night noodles – What a graet idea; spicy noodles or rice and just the right amount of deep-fried goodness served well after the bars close. Sure, I'd probably die of heart disease within six months would that I chose to eat like this daily, but Osha is a great budget place indulge in salty, oily foods post-bar.
MMMMM Yummy! – There is nothing else to say, this Restaurant is AWESOME!
The only time I got a dish which was different from #71 (Fried Sauteed Garlic Beef W/Rice), was my first time going there back in 2000. Other than that I've been to Osha countless times & I still order the Garlic Beef, this is the Best Thai Restautrant in SF.
If you want to be ignored... – If you want to be ignored, I recommend this restaurant. We were promptly seated; however no one attended to us for well over 15mins, not even a glass of water. Our food came about the time as our appetizers. The food was not warm. It was definitely a disappointment dining in my neighborhood that night.
Hungry after clubbing late at night? Think Osha – Osha is great for all you partygoers living the life in SF. Their pad kee mao is the best I've had in the Bay Area, and their green curry is quite tasty. Prompt service and late hours are definitely a plus. If you're looking for good Thai food at starving-student prices, come here.
grease, armpits and crap service abound – The armpits belonged to my sleevless male server who literally threw my food on the table. A total joke of a restaurant.
Thai in the Neighborhood! – We live in the area and were disappointed when Jour local Thai restaurant closed. We were on a the search for a new place to replace it and Osha has done that. The menu is quite extensive, the food is delicious and the service is pretty good. Prices aren't all that cheap but pretty reasonable. It is a good option if you are in the Union Square area because the food options are so limited there, it is a 4 or so blocks away.
A diverse crowd of noodle lovers frequent this inexpensive Thai find well into the wee hours. – The Scene
The hippest noodle parlor in town draws a diverse crowd of tattooed and wild-haired youths, happily slurping away in diner-esque, blue vinyl booths. A stylish Thai staff dishes up these economical bowlfuls at lightning speed till after midnight daily.
Bold, creative variations on Thai noodles take center stage, but standards are also exceptional: Spicy egg noodles are stir-fried with chunks of crispy, succulent roast duck, then perfectly finished with licorice-scented Thai basil and a hint of sweet soy. Ever-popular pad thai is rich and peanut-y, though slightly oily; and chicken tom yum's thin noodles can be overwhelmed by a complex broth. The teo chew pork wontons float in clear, greaseless stock. Fiery, lime-infused beef salad and Osha's Sea, a robust red curry brimming with moist salmon chunks, crab claws, shrimp and calamari are ideal examples of the signature Thai balance of hot, sour, salty and sweet.
