Hungry and venturing out for my first evening in the area, I just arrived in San Fran. today and wasn't interested in taking the Grand Tour quite yet.
I found a terriffic restaurant close to my hotel and it was definately a good choice. The wait staff was friendly, and both my appetizer and entree were extremely fresh and tasted excellent. I arrived a bit late in the evening so the waiter was happy to suggest which items wouldn't be recommended this late in the evening. I quizzed him about a few of the suggested entrees and he was quick to help direct me towards the item that sounded best. I was very happy with my choice.
I like to enjoy a coctail with my meal and Thai Satay was complete with a full bar with a heavy pouring bartender. I recommend the curry items on the menu and don't be afraid to request it spicy (they dont go overboard). The spring rolls were also excellent.
I would definately choose this restaurant again. Two Thubs up.

I ordered the Panang Beef. The portion size was decent. I foolishly went with the reviewer who said their food was too bland and told them to make it extra hot. It was so spicy my nose was running and I eat Habanero peppers on everything. It was delicious. Now for the bad: The staff is extremely polite..when they're not COMPLETELY IGNORING YOU...which is 99% of the time you're there. When I was done I wanted a dessert, but the waitress quickly rushed my check over to me. Its some of the worst service I ever experienced. Food was great though. Don't be fooled by the reviewer who said its not hot enough. He must be eating battery acid with his food.

We went there for lunch and the portions are very generous. Great prices and good food. This place is way better than Thai Stick in Millbrae.
Nice atmosphere, easy parking and friendly staff.
Note: the spicey dishes have a * next to them on the menu.
I enjoyed the pad thai and the basil beef (spicey)

My wife and I eat Thai food on a regular basis. We are from South Carolina, but are travelling around the country on a 7 month RV trip. We have eaten at a Thai or Indian restaurant in every large city we have stopped at, and Thai Satay had, by far, the most tasteless, bland food we have had yet.
My wife and I split the Pad Thai and the Yellow Curry. The Pad Thai was not as good as the Thai for Two Pad Thai that you can buy at most grocery stores and prepare yourself. It actually tasted downright bad. and we did not eat all of it. The yellow curry, which is usually full of flavor, was lacking of any taste whatsoever. My wife would not even eat it, and I only ate it until I was no longer hungry, which did not take very long with this dish.
If you want an authentic Thai meal or just some good food, go somewhere else!

Excellent Thai food with an upscale ambience. Great for business lunches/dinners or a romantic evening out. Service is great, food is excellent and plentiful. Parking on-street or in lots around the main street on Grand Avenue (metered parking before 6pm).

The portion sizes here were definitely good, especially since the meal came with soup and a salad. The food was ok, and although I know that Thai food in general isn't my favorite, I think it could have used a little more umph, a little more spice to it. However, not bad, and very friendly staff.
