Was searching for something close to my hotel in a union Sq, and stumbled across this restaurant. Called the concierge to book a table for my family and I, and they said no need to book as it was a Monday - so ok we turned up - goes without saying it was packed but the staff was very helpful...

This restaurant was quite busy for a Tuesday night, we wanted something different to the normal US fayre. We managed to get a table right away. We ordered the the lamb naan to share for starters and then the Indonesian fried rice for main. Both were really good although the naan could've had more filling and be not so flat.... More

Really nice place with delicious food, a good atmosphere and a very nice service. We got some dishes to share which is recommended so you have a chance to try more different things. We got Tuna Tartare, satay sticks, spring rolls and a pad Thai to share 3 people and that was more than enough. The tuna tartare is especially... More

We came with a group on this return visit. The food was just as good and fusiony as in the past BUT the difference was in the service. In the basement (probably reserved for groups), the staff simply placed the dishes on the table without explanation and without panache. The result was that the food become background noise rather than... More

We visited this restaurant on a Friday lunchtime and I can't fault the food or the service. The Ahi tuna tartare was a real highlight. Given the quality of the food and the ambience of the restaurant I think it's great value for money.

The restaurant is nicely designed and looks very inviting. The dishes we had on the other hand weren't what you would expect from an Asian restaurant. Meat on a stick with pickled carrots doesn't seem asian to me. The meat was also cold but they didn't charge me for it.

Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your meal with us more. All of our dishes are Asian inspired, with a modern take on traditional Asian dishes, so I apologize if they didn't remind you of the common dishes prevalent in many restaurants. Pickled carrots, while it might seem strange, are definitely a staple in Vietnamese and other Asian cuisines --... More

We ate here on a Saturday night around 7:30pm. We didn't have a reservation as we had just got into town, and the hostess was a little pretentious about it. (But being from Louisiana, I'm used to southern hospitality). Regardless, there were tables open and available around the restaurant and we were sat immediately. Service was prompt and efficient.

Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the pot stickers, Neil. While I would have appreciated more detail about what you didn't like about them, I'll still take your concerns back to the kitchen.

We were looking for the best Asian restaurant in San Francisco - reckon we found it. Not a single bad dish, as per other reviews we had the Tamarind and Hoisin Ribs - they were as good as everyone said. Also highly recommend: Butternut dumplings (amazing sauce) Tomato & Watermelon Thai Salad (fresh, healthy, tasty). Tuna Tartare (gorgeous) Wood Smoked... More
