Marnee Thai: Restaurant Info 27 August,2010Wendy Goodfriend

    More on excellent, authentic Thai Food.
    Please authentic only restaurants.

    After the TV program we were expecting a lot but we were very disappointed. I would give it 2 out of 5 stars. The fresh statay was good, but the tom yum (my benchmark for thai restaurants) was mediocre. Plus, they completely forgot the soup and people on both sides of us were served long before we were, even though we arrived at the same time. I had to ask 2 times for the soup.

    The curry dishes were unremarkable. I have eaten lots of Thai food, in Bangkok too, and this did not come close, no matter what people say.

  • Well, though I am not an expert on Thai food I know what I like. My friend and I decided to try Marney Thai since we were in the area today. I have been wanting to try it out since it aired on Check Please Bay Area. We ordered the pot stickers to start and I was hooked. They were perfectly spiced with a mild curry and had my palate yearning for more. I ordered the hotcakes thinking they would be like pancakes. I was so pleasantly surprised when they turned out to be mini bite size actual little cakes.

    They are fried in rice paper and consisted of rice, corn, green onions, coconut and pumpkin with a coconut cream sauce. There were about eight of them. The complexity of the ingredients were the highlight of these cakes. They were luscious to say the least. I could have downed another order.

    I loved this place and will definitely be back when I could splurge and order much more.

    Thanks, Check Please Bay Area for featuring this restaurant.

    I love Marnee Thai! This is hands down the best Thai food in San Francisco. I like to go to the original Marnee on Irving and 23rd, but the one on 9th and Coriander in the San Francisco Center are both amazing. The Drunken Duck Noodles, Garlic Pepper Fish (special or Sea Bass) and Angel Wings are my favorite. Thai food is my favorite food and I’ve tried many places in San Francisco (and Thailand) and Marnee Thai stands out above all the rest. Go to Marnee Thai and eat family style and you won’t be disappointed!

    I am Thai and I agreed with all of them. I always go to Marnee Thai for Thai food with the same reasons mentioned in the clip. Family welcome feeling, great food and pleased my palate at all time when I’m there. Salute to Chef Chai who represent Thai food to San Franciscan in the Thai way.
