Used to love this place and would seek it out whenever in San Francisco. This last time though, the food was extremely greasy. The service was very average and one of our appetizers was under-cooked. I was not impressed and will probably not be back. This is unfortunate as it used to be a great spot. Meal breakdown Green Beans... More

WoW ! WOW ! - I mean WOWWW ! Absolute serendipity. I've known for tendency to have a sixth sense when it comes to finding good places to eat in the unfamiliar cities. But this place.... We had an Japanese dinner at Chotto few blocks from Betelnut and walking down the street considering some deserts that Chotto lacks. Stumbled upon... More

A lifelong friend who lives in SF brought us here. First thing is that, from the outside, it appears to be a pretty small but lively hole-in-the-wall, but the dining area opens out way to the back and then makes a dog leg to the left so that it wraps around and behind several other addresses on the same street...

Visited about 15 years ago and thought we would try again. Really good promotion service and loved the good we had - calamari, short ribs and turmeric fish. What we really liked was the fact that we had ordered a fourth dish but the waitress came back and asked if we still needed it before bringing it, which we didn't... More

After an afternoon of wandering the trendy Union Street shops, treat yourself to one of the best Asian fusion restaurants in the U.S. Appropriate for the neighborhood, Betelnut is trendy and popular among the hip locals so be prepared for a somewhat loud restaurant (but in a good way). There are so many tasty options, do your best to order... More

Visiting San Francisco? Don't know where to eat? Like Asian food at relatively reasonable prices? This is the place to try! Tonnes of restos in SF - but for great food, great value in a trendy place, Betelnut is a must for any new visitor to SF. The menu is always different each season/year. Each time we've gone there, we've... More

We ate here at the recommendation of our guide after we finished a Victorian Home Walking Tour. We browsed the stores on Union street and sought out the restaurant next to the only palm tree on the street. Funny thing is, the sign is facing the entryway. So even though we were standing in front of it- I had to... More

Great fusion food, good for sharing, and a pretty decent gluten free menu (if you're in to that sort of thing). They've got some good sakes on offer as well, service was good too.
