Loved it

Tried the new branch (there are two in San Francisco). Loved the food (fresh and tasty) and friendly service. Simple, clean place. We would definitely come back when we visit SF again.

Not to expensive and good food. If you love all things bread, try their Roti - a flatbread (home made). They serve it with Curry sauce. This alone is worth a visit.

I had a hard time finding this place because it is below the street level with a faded sign outside. Usually there is a line if you go during meal time because there are very few tables. I love their corn fritters, the texture is quite unique. Roti Pratha and potato cake are worth to try for appetizers. For the... More

We chose this place quickly on our way to GGP and absolutely loved it! It's a cute little hidden gem set back from the street. We started our meal with the Roti Pratha which we found to be quite good. The bread was light and not too filling and the curry was mild and on the sweet side. I ate... More

Quaint little SE Asian rest. Many locals go here. I had the spicy pork sandwich on french bread-very tasty-not too spicy. Wife had the daily special-curry with shrimp and a hard boiled egg. It had a lot of shrimp. We will go back!

You will enjoy the tastes of several countries all in one spot. Try the Matabak, corn fritters(best) and love the tofu with shrimp.

It is not easy to find an affordable Indonesian restaurant in the city... but then I found Lime Tree. It is very small place but cozy, clean enough. The food is met with my expectation considering the price. They are friendly and try their best to service you. Try their "Ikan Pepes"... so yummy and inexpensive. Eating here just like... More
