Craving Thai? You're in luck: a new business has opened its doors in the neighborhood. Located at 3226 Geary Blvd. in Laurel Heights, the fresh addition is called Derm Restaurant.
The new eatery, which replaced the former La Belle restaurant, features an extensive menu of Thai specialities, which the business says incorporates the "perfect combination between authentic spices and modern ingredients" in a casual dining atmosphere. It offers a selection of appetizer, noodle and curry standbys, plus a plethora of more unique dishes such as pan-fried mussels, ribeye steak with tamarind sauce, stir-fried pork spare ribs, and Thai-style marinated chicken wings. (See the full menu here.)
The new spot has garnered rave reviews thus far, with a five star rating out of 10 reviews on Yelp.
Keith W., the first Yelper to review the new spot on May 5th, said: "Just opened last week and I've eaten here three times already! The owners are super nice and the service is quick. By far the best Pad Thai I have ever had."
Yelper Greg C. added: "Great addition to the neighborhood. Very good service and quality food. The Pad Thai was excellent and the red curry Kang Daeng Pak was over the top. We started with the shrimp rice wrap and added wok tossed Brussel Sprouts with garlic. Great location and easy area parking if needed. Strong recommendation for dinner or take out."
And Calvin S. said: "Defiantly digging this place. Fat portions, they got Leo beer and everyone is friendly."
