The dishes I tasted were very good and had just the right amount of spice for me. My husband couldn't eat some of the food, so I ate it all (actually I took it home. ) There is a very good dessert that is a squash/custard combo. It may sound strange, but you have to try it.

My husband and I have eaten at Soi4 numerous times and always enjoyed it, so when we were looking for a place to hold our wedding celebration dinner we thought of it immediately. They have a mezzanine and we did not have a huge group (32) so it was perfect for us. (the maximum is 33) We found the manager... More

My daughter and I were wandering through the RockRidge area, thought the restaurant was cute and stopped in for lunch. An excellent experience. The restaurant is cute and clean with a light airy feel. Service is superb - water glasses quickly filled, wine appearing in short order, orders taken promptly and the meal arriving in a reasonable time frame. But... More

We had an excellent meal at SOI 4. We got 4 dishes to share plus an appetizer and were plenty full by the end between us four adults. I was very thirsty that night and kept the guy who was pouring water busy and he never let me down (and was very kind the entire time)! All the prices seemed... More

A group of four went here and everything was lovely. the food was good and there were more unique dishes than typically found in Thai restaurants. I like the traditionally served in america Thai but it was refreshing to have some of these more unique dishes. I would go back and nice drink selection also. Also it is a nice... More

We went to Soi 4 with friends who live in the area. We came out from the city on BART to hike in Tilden Park, then for an early dinner. A lack of reservations was not a problem at the opening hour on a February night. We were even early enough for Happy Hour specials. The food was so good!... More

I've eaten in once and got to go once. Never had a bad dish. Delicious food with a range of flavors that can't be beat. If you're in the mood for Thai this is the place for you!

I last wrote a review of Soi4 back in January 2015. Prior to then, we used to go to Soi4 regularly, but over the past 18 months, my wife and I focused on trying new restaurants, dining out two or three times a week. What we have come to realize is that are places that are worth going to frequently,... More

Dinner at Soi 4 Bangkok Eatery was the very LOW POINT of our 2 week trip to the Bay Area! We did our internet research before we made reservations at this restaurant. We wanted a special dining experience that offered a nice atmosphere and great food for our party of four. Three people in our group eat a vegan diet,... More

Our family ate at Soi 4 three times in one week, and loved every minute of it. We tried it first on the recommendation of a friend, and then couldn't bring ourselves to go elsewhere. The food is inventive (and probably best if you listen to their advice and also go with their dishes without asking for changes), but not... More
