Khan Toke Thai House is located way out in the Richmond district past 20th Avenue where San Franciscan's really live. Just get on Geary & keep driving -- but it's worth it. Khan Toke's a higher end Thai restaurant where you get to sit on cushions and no shoes are allowed.

We visited Khan Toke in December 1999 and immensely enjoyed the hospitality and great food. The host will take your shoes and seat you at a low table. Some of the tables have a "well" to drop your feet, and at some tables you sit cross-legged. This seating may not always be the most comfortable.

The food is an excellent selection with great quality. The atmosphere is very authentic -- the servers wear traditional clothing of a Thai server. Background music is beautiful selections from the Thai culture. For an appetizer, we enjoyed fresh spring rolls which had an excellent mix of shrimp and vegetables with a delicious sauce. We sampled garlic prawns in a special, sweet vinagrette sauce -- excellent! We also tried a spicy chicken dish which was wonderful.

There are many Thai restaurants you can try in San Francisco. They range from diners to stylish, upscale restaurants. I would recommend Khan Toke as your best choice for a memorable and delicious meal. Just don't forget their trademark -- no shoes and you may sit on the cushioned floor!

Expect to spend around $20 per person in total and share your food -- it's the most fun...
