Good Reasonably Priced Thai Food – Ate here when I was in the City at a meeting. The food is very authentic and reasonably priced.
Great for vegetarian dishes – I had their vegetarian Pad Thai and it was the best I've ever had. The vegetables are fresh and cooked to perfection. Also for appetizer you must try the golden triangles ; they are delicious! Friendly service and nice atmosphere. This is my favorite Thai place in the bay area.
Best foods, Friendly Staff and Great Customer Service – I have been going to Cha Am Restaurants for almost 8 years. I enjoyed the variety of foods. Most of all, the staff are always very nice and friendly. The owners make you feel welcome and comfortable. They always smile when you come in the restaurant. Kenny, the bartender , is very good and he makes sure that everything is great. He mixes the best cocktail drinks. You are going to love him.
Cha Am Thai Restaurant have the best variety of foods and a very friendly Staff
Decent Thai Food, but not the greatest – Food isn't bad, but you tend to get more vegetables than meats in the stir-fries. I think Koh Samui Monkey is much better, but a tad more expensive, or Osha which is a few blocks down is about the same price and has much better food. I have been there a couple times and have not had the urge to go back there once I have tried Osha and Koh Samui.
WOW!!! An absolute MUST is their Fried Whole Fish with Mango Salad! Everything about this dish is 5-STAR! Also their Spicy Tofu with Mint Leaves is scruptuous! And their bartender Kenny realy knows his drinks! Plus the staff is so courteous and efficient -- everything you would expect Thai people to be. BTW, the restaurant has a partially separated alcove that is perfect for parties of 20-30 diners. I'm obviously preferential about Cha-Am -- I've probably eaten there 100+ times even though I have to drive across town to get there. And although parking is a bummer, they do validate parking in the garage for 2 hours.
Editorial Review – Tasteful decor and home-style cooking draw diners to this spacious Thai restaurant in the heart of SOMA. Sister to Cha-Am Berkeley.
One of my fave Thai places! – I've been going to this place for several years and I love it. The imperial rolls are outstanding. I also love their red chicken curry and their spicy tofu dish. I've taken several out-of-towners here and I STILL hear about how much they loved the meal at Cha Am. The decor is cheesy and the location at the intersection of Third and Folsom isn't all that scenic, but the food is tops. Great lunch or after-work dinner spot. Enjoy!
Shotty service, average food – It's priced and designed like a nice restaurant, but the food and service just don't stand up. Maybe I'll give it another try? The full bar is nice.
Good food, service free parking – Food is fresh and delightfull. My favorite are coconut milk chicken soup and crispy spring roll. The service is good though it a bit slow sometime when the busy time, but waitress still smile, nice and friendly.The other feature I like is free 2 hrs parking.
Super Duper – Stylish interior (a bit 90's) but nice sets the scene for very clean and distinct flavors. The selection of meals is semi-standard, but it's the execution that makes this place shine. The soups and curries are especially well done. It's a great lunch place too. Also, 2 hour free parking in the building!
