Ben Thai Cafe

1331 Polk St (Austin)

San Francisco, CA 94109

This simple Thai kitchen stands out among the saturation of Asian restaurants on Polk St for mixing standard fare with experimental dishes most diners likely haven't heard of. The green curry is great, and so are the family recipes that the mother-and-son team will probably suggest you order. Ben Thai has a small but sold beer selection (including local brews like Almanac), daily happy hour, and Thai-style brunch.
