It’s the end of an era for a popular Thai restaurant operating from a refurbished Victorian in San Francisco.

Ploy II Thai Cuisine, a hole-in-the-wall restaurant known for its cozy atmosphere and simple, comforting dishes, has announced its permanent closure after more than three decades in the Haight.

“To our neighbors and guests, thank you for supporting our restaurant for 33 years! We had an amazing race, and now it’s time for us to retire,” read a sign taped to the front window that was spotted by SFGATE on Wednesday night. “From the bottom of my heart, thank you for everything!”

The restaurant was reported closed on Yelp a few days ago, and its website was no longer live. SFGATE attempted to reach the restaurant by phone and email, but had no response as of press time.

This marks the loss of a premier solo dining experience in the neighborhood. After wandering up a narrow staircase to the second floor, you’ll find yourself greeted by wood-paneled walls, a converted fireplace, and a slate menu listing daily specials. White lace curtains separated the dining room, where people leaned over generous plates of pumpkin curry and pad kee mao served on red and white checkered tablecloths. The window seats were great for people watching from a bird’s eye view of Haight Street (and I’ll miss the rainbow The art of words leaflet reminding me to be careful where I step when going to the bathroom).
