Great food Great deal

This is almost one of the hole in the wall finds. The food has flavor and the portions are perfect to generous. The menu is simple which does not take away from the quality of the taste. We ordered 5 different dishes and every one was delicious. The two specials were worth it. I hear the crap... read more

So my husband and I live in SF and are on an Asian Food Quest. We've been to about five different places so far, five different countries' cuisines. Having a toddler along for the ride, our best option is either a noisy quick place or just taking the whole deal to Golden Gate Park and having a picnic so he... More

Everyone knows there are great Asian restaurants in San Francisco, Chinese places topping the list. But the Lime Tree brings together the best of Southeast Asia: Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. Three distinct cuisines that share many similarities. The Char Kway Teow stir-fried noodles are as good as you will find at any street stall in Singapore. And try their Roti... More

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.
