This used to be a pretty special place for many years. The food was magical and delicious. The atmosphere eclectic. On a recent Saturday I met a business partner for early dinner. The menu has changed and now differs in nothing from a formulaic "Asian fusion " hack restaurants that are currently "in". Prices appear to have actually gone down,... More

Walked along Union from our hotel, and stumbled into this place. Sat just inside the windows/sliding doors that were pulled back, and had a smashing experience whilst watching the world saunter by. Food excellent, if slightly expensive. I would recommend to anybody in the area.

The food was delicious. You could tell each dish had a lot of flavours that were married beautifully. The sticky ribs were delicious and exceeded my expectations definitely. The service was a bit slow at the start but it improved once the staff got organised. Would definitely go again.

Busy and loud on a Weekend evening. Just up along from Union Square and next time I am in the area, I will probably look at some of the other dining options. Might be better for a drink and bar food but not a relaxed experience at a table. Wait persons rushed and difficult to have a one to one... More

Excellent food and dessert. They suggest you order two plates per person which worked out for us. Papaya salad, spareribs, chicken dumplings, fried rice...I'd order them all again. But the desert was the topper: pumpkin ginger ice cream and tempura fried bananas with carmel sauce. So wonderful!

This was a return visit (about 10 so far). Food is still eclectic and innovative. There were quite a few new and unfamiliar (but delicious) additions to the menu. Service is solid and the atmosphere comfortable.

The front area of the restaurant is inviting and vibrant, great for people watching with friends. The rear of the restaurant, where we ate, was a bit dim. Service was a little slow but friendly for an afternoon mid-week meal. The food was all pretty good, and we sampled a good bit of the menu. Prices were reasonable but the... More

Why have I missed this place before? Friends invited us to this great neighborhood place and I am glad they did. It has very comfortable seating with option for outdoors and the very friendly staff that had spot on recommendations for dinner. We all loved the chili crusted calamari (we had to get 2 orders of this it was so... More

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
