Any word on Osha Thai in Embarcadero Four?

It's drawn a full and bustling crowd for lunch every day since it opened a few weeks ago. Meanwhile, the NY-ish deli across the way (good pastrami, knishes)isn't doing very well.

  1. if it's the same osha thai as the one on valencia, it is great. good thai food in a pretty setting. i am sure you can't go wrong with eating there

    1. Same owners as Osha on 2nd St., on Valencia, and on Geary at Leavenworth. We had lunch there about a week ago and loved the food. It's different than the TL location, and we think the soups are better at the Geary store, but they did just open, so it may be early to judge. Service on 2nd St. is absolutely horrendous, and that was NOT the case at the Embarcadero. It seems like they're aiming for a more upscale experience at the Embarcadero. It's a lovely setting and there's an actual wine list (not amazing, but decent, and much better than nothing).

      The beef wasabi rolls are amazing. We also had an artichoke salad that we all loved.

      Check it out.


      1. I went once and found it to be okay but not as good as the one on 2nd. My co-workers have gone a few times since and they were not happy. I didn't get specifics but they feel the flavor is better at the 2nd street location.

        1. I have gotten such awful service at the 2nd street location that they could try paying me to eat there and I wouldn't. The food may be better in general just because Embarcadero has only been open a couple of weeks. This is one instance where I'd take a hit just to be treated competently.
