Good location for solo dinner. Bar and kitchen on ground floor when u enter. Friendly and helpful staff. Food good but average. Typical American Thai version. Would recommend if u want fresh Thai in a friendly atmosphere. Also low price. Starter & main plus two glasses of nice Chardonnay for under usd 50.

I love Thai food, tried several Thai restaurants along my trips and this one didn't really impress me. The overall feeling is that they massively employ great distribution-level ingredients with poor attention to raw materials quality. Rolls were tasteless, pad thai - which is delicious if well prepared - was just a plate of overcooked noodles with some chicken chops... More

Hanuman Thai is located on a non-descript street in downtown San Jose. In fact, it is easy to pass this Thai restaurant with an understated menu posted outside. Inside, the staff is welcoming into the bar area (downstairs) and dining room (upstairs). Peaceful sculpted statues grace both areas; and, at the top of the stairs, a beautiful piece of golden...

first time here, the food was really good, service was good, a little noisey from the open plan take away section and bar, but well worth the visit

Hanuman offers delicious and abundant Thai cuisine. They also give new meaning to the term "moderate" when applied to spicy food. "Moderate" at Hanuman, especially for soup, means fiery; it was a little less so for entries. But after the heat washed over one's palate, the tastes were excellent. I empathized for the waiter -- the dining area is upstairs... More

I have eaten here several times now, and have eaten a variety of their dishes. My impressions are: (1) The food is really good. If you like Thai, you will like this place a lot. Flavorful, adequate portions, and a terrific selection. (2) Their selection of non-alcoholic drinks is poor - basically soft drinks or tap water. I will give... More

Don't know what sort of disaster was occurring but no excuses were given and nothing was done to try and fix anything. Kitchen failure compounded by service failure. The little food we got was serviceable Thai but nothing special. Decided to try this place out and were very unhappy. Were seated fairly quickly and order was taken. Then waited almost... More

Strange layout of restaurant where the bar and cooking area are on main floor and to eat dinner you have to find table upstairs. So service is slow and hard to get waiters' attention if he is downstairs when you want more water or anything else. The atmosphere was more run down than I expected after seeing positive reviews. I... More

Restaurant and building in general needs some TLC. With a wheelchair, we had to sit in the bar area. Very limited seating. There's a bank of seating along the wall that's way too high for the tables. It was that or a short stool. The service was quick and nice. Amazing, since the waiter was also preparing the food! It... More
