I walked into Asia SF by accident. I was in the area and was really hungry so I went in to the bar to have a snack. I didn't know what was going on but someone told me the show was starting soon. Intrigued, I ordered some food and waited to see what would happen. Without spoiling the show for... More

So our Uber driver told us that this was a popular spot and we went on Saturday night at 9:15. The earlier dinner crowd was still seated so they routed us downstairs to a club to listen to music. So it was kind of like doing things backwards, clubbing before dinner and a show, but I had a GREAT time... More

Came here to see the show but either we were not lucky and it was a bad day or their show has nothing special to offer. I have been to travesty shows in Asia and those were on completely different level. Food was Asian and it was good. Waitresses were very kind and attractive however their show was extremely amateur... More

I thought the food was fine, nothing to write home about. But the show - AMAZING!!! I went to a drag brunch at the Drake Hotel (you should skip that one) for breakfast that day and went to this drag show that night and it was so much fun. The ladies were beautiful and good dancers, they were fun. They... More

We visited Asia SF for a birthday dinner last night and I must say "Wow"! Everything was outstanding from the food to the drinks to the "miracles of modern science". Particularly the ahi tuna, salmon firecrackers and soba noodles were among my favorites of the multiple food items brought to us and we all tried different signature cocktails that again... More

This place is unique and an awesome place to take out of town (or country, in our case) to visit. The staff were all very friendly and attentive. We even met two of the owners and chatted for a bit. The food was plentiful as well as very tasty. The Salmon burger and entrée looked very appetizing. I ordered the... More

Visited Asia SF for a business dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance, food, and entertainment. Take a break from a boring, traditional business dinner and come to Asia SF for a wonderful change of pace.

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
