I normally like osha thai but the service on friday night was terrible....After being told by the hostess that our table would be ready in 15 minutes about on hour later, we left.\r
Be upfront and say one hour if that is the case. Also,

I've always been a fan of OSHA Thai; especially when I worked a couple doors down from the SOMA location. I appreciate OSHA Thai for introducing me to Pad Se Ew and Volcanic beef. I like places that I visit that are consistent, and OSHA

I love this place. Never been disappointed in the food...everything I have ordered has been great. Especially like the pad thai and panang curry. Reasonable prices.

Have only come here for lunches. We always get the penang chicken curry, very good. Usually the pineapple prawns or duck does it for me. This time decided to try the angry prawns. Giant prawns and eggplant nicely done, but the sauce

The food is off-the-hook at this place. This is the best Thai food I've ever had. The place gets very busy at the peak times (eg, 12:00 - 1:00PM), and service can be difficult at times, but I still love Osha.

I've been to the unglam, original Osha which was the best of all Osha locations. Visited this location around 10 times since it's close to work. Each time the food & service is worse than before. Last night will be the last. My friend

I've eaten here a few times and each time there was something to ruin my dining experience. The food's quite good, but doesn't make up for the appalling, snotty service you're pretty much guaranteed. The chairs are like sitting in a fryer

I went there recently for a birthday party. Since the party was so big we had to be broken into two tables, which was fine. They only have one option per wine - ie only one cab, one pinot, one zin. We ordered the Cab and it was terrific

You know, by now, I should know the routine: Great Thai restarant opens up, offering great food at unbelievably low prices. Once they've got the patronage of the surrounding area, they jack the prices RIGHT UP! When I first moved to San

Fun spot to go to for lunch or dinner. Usually stays busy and has a lively feel. The red curry duck is good, as was the eggplant with chicken.
