Very good Vietnamese food, Very informal, a bit crowded, so don't be in a hurry! The food was some of the best I've had. Recommended.

We were early, and Tin (half of Tin-Tin) was quiet. The spring rolls were excellent, as was my beef pho. My wife had a dish with tofu and no soup and enjoyed it. The portions are large and invite sharing. We'll keep it in mind...More

A simple Vietnamese restaurant with no other "Asian" dishes mixed in. Good solid fare at very reasonable prices. Great flavors, authentic, clean with a lot of local traffic.

I was actually surprised how much I enjoyed this place. Everything we had was good...I think we enjoyed the beef salad the best. Service is great, though the restaurant is a bit small (I have to imagine it probably can get busy). From other reviews,...More

The side dish--Sautéed Baby Bok Choy with Garlic--came first to our table, and it was really good. Unfortunately, it went downhill from there. The pho was average at best, and so was the Hu Tieu Kho. The iced-coffee is sour; not even the condensed milk...More

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
