fantastic, and very quick delivery. Green curry, pad thai and wings all amazing.


Ordered shrimp Pad Thai for take out. From the taste and smell of my meal you could tell that the chef had used frozen shrimp and the tofu was burnt and definitely not fresh. I ...

Editorial review from GrubHub 6/28/2013

Delicious food, friendly service, came way earlier than the time GrubHub said it would. And for bubble tea lovers (a.k.a. boba tea, tapioca ball, pearl tea lovers) Modern Thai has Thai Iced Tea with tapioca pearls on the menu! The only restaurant I've seen on GrubHub so far that offers it and delivers to me. Modern Thai is one of my favorite Thai restaurants on GrubHub and I'll definitely order again. more

They ignored the special instructions on part of my order and the Pad Thai was tough. Everything else was tasty. more

Pad thai was great! Panang is what I use as a measure of good Thai food, and this was really good. Not as saucy as I like, but delicious. more

Frozen Thai 6/19/2009

Ordered shrimp Pad Thai for take out. From the taste and smell of my meal you could tell that the chef had used frozen shrimp and the tofu was burnt and definitely not fresh. I can think of at least two Thai restaurants within walking distance that have better tasting food. Pros: Convenient Cons: Flavor more

We've ordered from Modern Thai several times. They are consistently 5 stars! more

Delicious, Delicious and Delicious 10/16/2007

My friend recommended this restaurant. After trying it out, I totally agree that this restaurant totally deserves 5 stars. If they have the option of putting more than that, I am more happy to do that. :-) Anyhow, firstly the decoration is stunning. Casual and yet elegant. I like the bold green color. It gives such a contemporary feeling. The waiters are extremely friendly, but not overly friendly. The food are really good. I've order a Pad Thai (my friend recommended this also), Tom Kha (coconut soup) and a dessert I forgot the name..and they all good. So yummy...:-) Ok, talking about the's really cheap...A place easily changes your bad date to perfectly date! Gotta give it a trial! :-) more

Underrated Thai in the heart of the City... 6/26/2006

Modern Thai has been around for years, but they never seem to get the accolades they deserve. I've been there a dozen times and they are very consistant. The food is excellent, the service polite, with clean surroundings. It's not flashy, but they are a great neighborhood venue, particularly when you want a easy-going spot. Pros: great food - everytime, nice people Cons: not the hippest spot in SF more

Pleasantly surprised! 3/19/2006

My husband and I were visiting from out of town and decided to give this place a try. We were pleasantly surprised! The menu had a nice variety of items. We started with the papaya salad with side orders of sticky rice this was so authentic (I am half Thai, so I know!). Please eat this with your fingers to be authentic! We ordered the red curry chicken which had a hint of ginger and chicken pad Thai which had a nice blend of rice noodles, bean sprouts, peanuts, chicken, tofu, egg and seasonings. We were too stuffed to get dessert but they looked to have several tasty options. Hot tea complimented our dinner nicely. The ambience was almost romantic and had some Victorian details. Dont let the area keep you away we went at night and it was fine. This is a must try!! Pros: Authenticit, Variety, Value Cons: Street Parking Only more

Best Thai Food in City! Give it Your Business! 11/14/2005

I absolutely love this place. Not only are the waiters and waitresses really friendly and on the ball, the food is fabulous. My favorite dish there, and of all time, is the appetizer Basil Tofu. My boyfriend and I now consider this 'our place,' and we go all the time. It's cute, good and convenient. Check it out! Pros: food, service, convenience more

Fantastic Thai Food 4/5/2004

Clearly, San Francisco has an immense number of Thai food restaurants to choose from. This is one you should not miss. Although the storefront is plain, and the location might not attract your attention, the food is truly outstanding and is a great value to boot. Two dishes really stand out, that I have tried: the Basil Tofu and the the Trout Lui-Suan. The latter may be my favoirite Asian meal of all time. The service is very friendly, the menu is solid, and you will not be disappointed. Pros: Food, Service, Price more

Attentive Staff 12/10/2003

I thought Modern Thai was pretty good. Actually, it was really good. For those familiar with Thai restaurants in the city, it's definitely on par with Marnee Thai. I highly recommend the basil tofu appetizer. The brocolli saute was cooked perfectly, and the Pad Thai dish was solid. The service particularly stands out--they were very attentive. Overall, it was a great dining experience. Pros: Service, Good Value, Clean more
