Cha-am Located in the heart of the rapidly developing SOMA (South of Market) district, Cha-Am has become a well-known and popular, neighborhood lunch and dinner spot for those visiting the Yerba Buena Gardens, Center for the Arts, the Moscone Convention Center and the highly acclaimed Museum of Modern Art. Local San Franciscans, as well as tourists, enjoy Cha-Ams modern, elegant decor, accented with a blend of art-deco and traditional Thai ceramic pottery and beautifully framed Thai paintings. Its spacious dining area affords ample room for relaxation and privacy. Cool, soft jazz affords a perfect mix. The authentic Thai cuisine, inspired by the owners family home cooking, is exquisitely delicious to the Western palate. Cha-Am, San Francisco, opened in 1993, has secured its regular clientele and plans to continue its proud tradition well into the future. Chef and proprietor Yotin Srisawat, who grew up in the coastal towns of Cha-Am and Hua-Hin, proudly follows in the footsteps of his mother who is still an excellent cook at her home in Thailand. Yotin also follows his two very successful brothers, owners of Cha-Am, Berkeley, a popular East Bay spot for over a decade now.
