Hi all Chowhounds -- Being a transplanted Minnesotan, and still pretty new to the Bay Area, I am just beginnning to enjoy more ethnic foods. I've long been a devotee of Italian, French, and Greek food, and since Mr. Smith has very limited food tastes it's been hard to break out of this rut. I know how everyone raves about Thai food, but the few experiences I've had have been a bit frightening so far. I'd really like to get to know this cuisine, and would welcome recommendations. Anything you know about I'm happy to learn, but if you have any info that fits into these categories it would help a lot!

a) I'm quite a wimp when it comes to hot food (and Mr. Smith is even worse), so please recommend a dish or two which is on the milder (but I hope not blander!) side. I know that this is a hot cuisine!
b) Any standout Thai restaurants in the city -- in or near the Marina would be a plus!
