Our old favorite, Cafe Kati, closed several years ago. We were taken to this place near Union Square by some friends when we were visiting. 8:30 or 9pm on a Saturday night. No problem being seated right away. The maître d' was extremely welcoming - chatting with us as they prepped the table. Sent the Indonesian corn fritters to our... More

This one of the best Asian restaurant I have been this a long time. Excellent Lapsouchong tea eggs, I definitely recommend the mushroom dumplings and the Char Siu black cod. Friendly service, small carte, and good value wine list. Decor minimalist, contemporary with good taste, the only, maybe, small annoyance it the noise. Fresh delicate, very tasty light asian cooking,... More

Impromptu dinner at 930pm on a Monday night. Took a chance on this place as we just liked the look from the outside. Really impressed. All food and drink was perfect. We ate at the bar - the barman was outstanding (not a word I use often) - recommended the highlights of the menu. Corn fritters, chicken & steak satay,... More

We stopped going to E&O a couple of years ago when the menu became mostly Korean. We decided to give them another try when, in passing, we saw the menu looked like it had in the past. We were not disappointed. Five very different but all delectable appetizers/small dishes were probably one too many for the two of us, but... More

We chose this restaurant due to unique Asian fusion menu that was also gluten free. It was busy and our waiter was either overworked or inept or both but we waited for drinks then they never cleared our appetizer plates before dinner arrived. I would not return based on the service we received.

I'm truly sorry for the service you received. This is very much unlike the friendly, quick service we are known for. I will absolutely be speaking with our staff about this. I can understand your hesitation, but I'd love for you to consider dining with us again in the future. Best, Sharon Nahm, Head Chef More

Was in SanFrancisco for a conference and went here for lunch with a group. Food and service were great. People had lettuce cups, corn fritters, spring rolls, satay, indonesian fried rice, drunken noodles and prawn salad. All were terrific. Highly recommend. For the quality the lunch items were very fairly priced.

Full house but managed a table for dinner without a wait. Looks like a locals' hang-out and a loud bar crowd to contend with. Varied menu which takes a stroll through most of Asia. The lamb Naan and chicken satay were good. This looks like a place where shared small plates are the way to go. If you like American... More

We've been going here for years and just love the small plates. Liked to old decor with the nautical style but food is always good. Try some of their unique cocktails.

Decided to bring another couple here because we enjoyed it so much on our last visit to San Francisco. Made Open Table reservation far in advance.

Was searching for something close to my hotel in a union Sq, and stumbled across this restaurant.
