Thai Monkey in the Beach

One of the most offensive culinary crimes is to charge a high price tag for very bad food. With Asian cuisines gaining more and more trendiness in the culinary world, you’re starting to find yourself paying $20 for Thai food that you know you should only be paying $10.  Koh Samui and the Monkey is not the worst offender, but it still gets put on the growing list of restaurants that try to get away with charging more for a cleaner, nicer setting while serving up a menu of blah sometimes terribly unauthentic food.  Considering the location in the South Beach neighborhood of San Francisco, one of Koh Samui’s most redeeming qualities is being an option for Thai food in a relatively low traffic part of town.   The food isn’t bad, but it’s not that good either. At the same time, it’s not that expensive but it’s definitely not cheap (the way Thai food should be). Drinks are decent. It is a nice place for a simple dinner or a first date, because it has that urban chi chi feel that makes for a cool vibe.
