Locals have voted this convenient downtown spot the City's best Thai cuisine. Very vegetarian friendly, good for groups. Located in the heart of the rapidly developing SOMA (South of Market) district, Cha-Am has become a well-known and popular, neighborhood lunch and dinner spot for those visiting the Yerba Buena Gardens, Center for the Arts, the Moscone Convention Center and the highly acclaimed Museum of Modern Art. Local San Franciscans, as well as tourists, enjoy Cha-Am’s modern decor, accented with a blend of art-deco and traditional Thai ceramic pottery and beautifully framed Thai paintings. Its spacious dining area affords ample room for relaxation and privacy. Cool, soft jazz affords a perfect mix.
