BIL recommended this gem. It's on Grant Stbut up further past Chinatown so make sure you Google map if you're not that familiar with SF. My husband and I got the calamari and special appetizer, which was a soft shell crab on soba noodles. It was good, but the soba noodles were a little over cooked and too sweet. The... More

Very busy , small restaurant in a dodgy corner. However , the food is excellent. Our server was new on the job and we had to ask for the restaurant manager to get to vegetarian options.. After the initial hurdle the experience was great and the food excellent.

Had dinner with friends at The House. Everything was just great. The food - miso cod, sea bass, pork chop, steak and noodles - all excellent. Good value in this bustling little place. Make a reservation for sure. It's fusion with a lot of Japanese and Thai influence. Tables are really cozy, you will definitely know your neighbors better by... More

My fiance, her family and I stopped in here for lunch. We had heard that it was a great place for dinner, but didn't know they were open for lunch. The cuisine is a Thai Fusion and I was impressed. It was delicious. We did not go for dinner while we were in San Francisco, but we were told that... More

I don't know a lot about reviewing food so I'll keep it brief. No bar, No frills interior. Focus seemed to be on the food. Food was fantastic. We really, really enjoyed our meals. Visiting SF, we also really enjoyed dining at a spot that wasn't the typical tourist restaurant. Highly recommend

This small and charming restaurant straddles the Financial district and Chinatown. They graciously accommodated our group of 7 for a business lunch. Service was efficient and friendly, the food was terrific. The wasabi noodles had just enough heat without being overpowering. I enjoyed them with the pork, which was well spiced, but a bit dry. The calamari appetizer is delicious... More

This small restaurant creates amazing dishes all with very distinct flavors. The menu is wonderful and service is surprisingly quick. It's so popular, it's not easy to get in. Reservations are definitely recommended.

Ok so just as I was about to write this review I just read in one of the previous comments that apparently what I was just served is fish flakes! That's really gross!!!! Take it out of the menu immediately! That said, this small Chinese restaurant is a little gem in north beach. The food is very tasty and the... More
