I wanted to choose a convenient location in San Leandro, halfway between my house and a friend's. Someone I know in San Leandro recommended Thai Satay, and it was a very good choice. We shared the fresh spring rolls as an appetizer. The kitchen accommodated us by making the rolls vegetarian. My friend had the pad Thai and asked that the kitchen substitute squid for the prawns. I ordered sautéed eggplant and asked that the dish be mild. The kitchen got it just right. I liked that the restaurant was quiet enough for conversation. And also that it was close to BART.
