Excellent Thai food! – Delicious Thai food if you know what to order! Even the Pad Thai here is quite good, considering I try not to order that. It's not too sweet!

We started with the Tom Yum Goong [spicy and sour prawns and mushroom soup with a touch of lemon grass in roasted chili aroma]. My oh my, this soup is SPICY [in a good way]! The prawns were perfect, probably thrown into the soup at the very last second so that they wouldn't be overcooked. Who likes overcooked shrimp?

We ordered the Gai-Kraprao [sautéed minced chicken in sweet basil and fresh chili garlic sauce] and the Nur-Toon [a combination of beef cubes and spices cooked in mushroom and garlic sauce served in a clay pot]. The clay pot was nicely flavored.

All portions were generous, and we had enough food for lunch the next day.

Disgusting Overall – I heard that this was the best Thai Restaurant in the city, but I was very disappointed. The food was mediocre, with very little spices. The curry chicken had 3 huge chunks of potato in it, as if they couldn't spend the time to cut it and just sliced the potato twice and tossed it in there.

My glass was still dirty with a lipstick stain on it. My ice water contained no ice, even two of me refills had no ice in it, so I had to ask for a cup of ice.

Service was very slow for the most part, until the end when we were done and ready to pay our bill.

The couple in the table next to us kept on hugging, cuddling, and kissing the whole night!

I would never go back to this dirty, disgusting place!

Favorite Thai Restaurant! – Excellent food at reasonable prices! The atmosphere, decor, and waitstaff outfits are also very authentic. I definitely recommend their BBQ chicken and yellow chicken curry. Yum!

Diamond in the rough – If you have never been to Manora before, you are really missing out! But beware - once you try their food, you will keep comming back for more. Their prices are very reasonable, portions are large, the staff is very friendly and accommodating and the food is AMAZING! Seating is limited, so if you are planning on bringing a large group, deffinitely make reservations in advance. When it gets busy, service can become a little slow, but the food is deffinitely worth a little bit of a wait.

SOMA jewel, I can't wait to go again! – This restaurant has everything I look for deilcious food (I tried several dishes and they were ALL amazing especially the seafood), the hostess was very attentive and we were seated promptly, then our waitress was helpful and never left us wanting anything. The atmosphere is that of a very expensive restaurant, but none of the pretentious vibes that go along with it. You can get any dish as spicy or mild as you like, but you'll want to save room for desert!

Excellent and inexpensive – We are always seated quickly, have great food and great service. I've been to MANY Thai restaurants in San Francisco and this is one of the top places on my list. Your food is always made to order (spicy, medium, no spice) and has excellent flavor.

Expensive, but not very good – I've eaten here a few times, but only because the people I did. I'd never pick to eat here on my own - the food is bland, and the service was abysmal. Not only that, but their prices are outlandish for a Thai restaurant.

Thai – Lunch is the best. The "pick of two" items for $7.50 is great. You also get rice and soup. This is the best lunch value south of market and the food is spicy and great.

No reservations necessary for lunch.

A quietly elegant restaurant serving innovative, affordable and remarkably intense Thai cuisine. – The Scene
Filmy white curtains veil Manora's diners from the outside world. The tranquil space is on the elegant side of casual, with dark-wood wainscoting, carved teak details and ornately framed Thai prints. Even when full, the room feels quiet and spacious.

The Food
The menu diverges from the usual peanut sauce and curry standards with fresh, interesting combinations of flavors--and all the dishes are a couple bucks cheaper than at comparable Thai places. A Yum-ma-keur appetizer offers tender charbroiled eggplant with prawn, chicken and hard-boiled egg in lemon-garlic sauce; gang jurd soup's clear, mild broth allows the simple flavors of shrimp, spinach and napa cabbage to shine. A dish of sautéed Chinese broccoli and bits of salt cod in a perfectly assertive garlic sauce tastes both healthy and addictively savory. Pong-pang clay pot is a bargain and a treat, with tons of seafood and vegetables in a silky, dark-red chili sauce.
