Love the lantern aesthetics here, the ambiance is relaxing and cool. The food is good, tried the osyter, excaliburger and the snow dessert. We came here just to grab appetizer, wish could have ordered more but maybe next time.

This restaurant was just what we were looking for! Cool place in the basement, funky crowd and comfortable for us all. Food is sort of an Asian mix. Food and drinks were really good. Very glad we found it!

Went with 3 friends, immediately liked basement location, then the projector tv's then the picnic table under the framework roof constructed within the building. I chose rabbit hearts, very chewy, wouldn't do it again but happy that I tried it. It was fun and different.

While the atmosphere was entertaining (as well as the name), I wasn't impressed by the food and the drinks were overpriced. There are so many other bars in Oakland to eat and drink. Go to them. Blind Tiger is not worth the wait or the...More

Don't let the bench seating put you off. Be surrounded by an artsy atmosphere, weird movies on big screens while eating good food, I mean seriously good food. Go with a group so you can try more dishes.
