The Good:
Delicious Thai food and fast service. We had the Pad Ke Mow, the pumpkin curry, and some Thai iced teas. All were very delicious. The spices were apparent but not overpowering, and the pad ke mow was flavored well. The pumpkin curry was really acorn squash curry, but also good. Lunch specials were all under $8 a plate.

You can walk here from My house, which is another plus, and the outdoor area is super cute. It is in a courtyard area, and would be hard to miss of not for all the signs and arrows on San Leandro.

Open 10am to 9pm, and they also serve traditional American Breakfast. I'll be back to try this!

The Bad:
The inside atmosphere is lacking. Lots of tables and lack of planning make it feel like a cafeteria more than a cozy Thai spot, but the food does make up for it.

The Thai food at the Vulcan in east Oakland is good. Really good. So good that I'd eat there twice a week. Their Pumpkin Curry ($5 or so) is their signature dish and should be obligatory. You can get it with chicken or tofu - or I suppose just with warm chunks of pumpkin. The curry itself is creamier and just slightly sweeter than a green, yellow, or red curry, and very, very good.

Other menu items of note are the pad thai and satay chicken.

PROS: Yummy Thai food
CONS: The Thai iced tea can come in a bigger glass....
