I've eaten at this restaurant almost every week for years now and I just can't get enough of it. I've tried other places but none of them wow me everytime like Pacifica Thai does. The food is awesome and unique. They have the best homemade peanut sauce, and because it's made from scratch, it's different every time you get it, but always spectacular! I've tried all the veggie and fish dishes and love them all. My favorite is the Koong Prick Pow with breaded Red Snapper that comes with a garlic tamarind sauce. The flavor of that dish just explodes in your mouth, but oddly enough it's not that hot (spicy) and it's not richly sweet. Again, it's different every time I get it, but it always blows my mind.
Now, the family who runs the place are really great. One or two people who work there may a little shy and may not say much, but they are all more than happy to talk to you if you have something to say or ask. I personally like it that they don't come around 10 times to ask if you are ok. I feel like my privacy is invaded when other restaurants do that. If I need something it's easy to get their attention and they're happy to help.
Overall Pacifica Thai my favorite restaurant ever. And why eat in SF when you can go somewhere with a free parking lot and be able to catch a beautiful sunset over the ocean?
