Osha Thai redecorates with butt-chairs, subliminally encourages take-out orders


I don’t care how good their spicy eggplant dish is, being spotted in a butt-chair is totally not worth dining in.

    I hope they didn’t toss out the old Kartell eros chairs, I’ll take one.

    Wow, they really just ruined the entire eat-in experience there. What were they thinking?

    Actually, Osha has had those chairs for at least a few months.

      ACTUALLY, congratulations on being a smartass! How does it feel to know everything? Read the article and notice that nowhere therein does Vic indicate any temporal relationship between the arrival of the chairs and the publishing of this piece. It doesn’t say “New Chairs Have Recently Arrived At Osha!” It just says “Osha Thai Redecorates …” Perhaps your own Mission culture blog would keep us all better apprised of goings-on in the neighborhood?

    congrats, osha, you’ve discovered a new an interesting way to keep me out of
    your restaurant. i like the food and i would sit on $10 folding chairs to eat there. i’ve never felt awkward just sitting in a restaurant until now.

    Not only do they look like butts, but they kinda look like toilets.

    You can’t look lamer, what with your “Iconic” mustache, “iconic” flannel shirt, and your GF’s skinny jeans.
    So it’s not the same type of chairs that you knew at your favorite IHOP back home; get over it, it’s San Francisco, the city.
    What, your sexuality is so tenuous that you’ll feel compromised sitting in these chairs?!?

    They lost me a couple of months back with the cheesy ass grade school Halloween decorations they put up.

    Tonight we ate at Osha Thai on Valencia and loved the food. Liked the decor very much and got the sense of humor with the great chairs. But first and for most nice servers and excellent Thai food. I will go back and I feel that this is the beginning of a food romance. Great job guys. Keep the chairs they are comfortable and cute.

    We ate the lettuce wraps which were so good then the jasmine rice with artichoke salad another good choice and finally the Australian lamb chops oh such good lamb cook to perfection. Too full for dessert. But next time…
