Where's the good Thai food in San Fran?

lacy | Aug 10, 200208:31 PM     14

Having just relocated from New York City, my s.o. and I were very excited about the prospect of having a myriad of good Thai restaurants available. Much to our disappointment, all the Thai food we've had so far has been, at best, unremarkable; at worst just outright bad. We tried the place on 5th and Clement--King of Thai Noodle, or Thai Noodle King or whatever and the food we ordered was bland, the sauces watery and too sweet. Worse--we asked that the food be served spicy and it was probably the least spicy Thai food I've ever had. We went to another place on 10th and Irving that was also nothing to write home about. So where's the good stuff? Is there anything approaching the authenticity of a place like the legendary Sripraphai in New York? I'm not looking for anything fancy or "atmospheric". Just some good, cheap curries, etc.
