This is a small restaurant, with a few tables and bar seating. Two chefs and one host/waiter. The server was friendly and was happy to make recommendations and talk about modifications (e.g. less spice available). A nice list of wine by the glass as well as bottles. The menu is eclectic -- a little bit of everything -- west african,... More

This is our go-to restaurant after a hectic week at work. We sit at the bar overlooking the kitchen and watch the chef work with our wine. The dishes are a combo of global influences. The menu changes slightly-there's always a couple new dishes and there's special Friday night special. We each have our favorites-the Havana, with rice, beans and... More

Just what you want from a neighbourhood restaurant. A warm friendly welcome - the place is tiny, and when 5 of us came in it was clearly going to be a struggle, but a couple of people offered to move without being asked, and we were in. Pricing is sensible, you can see everything being prepared and cooked, you can... More

My husband and I have lived in this neighborhood for 5 years and we just had our first meal at Pomelo tonight. We have been missing out! The menu was creative, extensive and affordable. We went with the Koh Samui, Gilroy and Lanzhou. All were delicious and I would order each of them again. Bold flavors, cooked to perfection and... More

A regular favorite of ours. We love the Manila, the Havana, and the Cabo San Lucas. Always fresh ingredients with amazing spices.

What a delight to find this wonderful restaurant. At first it appears to be a tiny Asian fusion restaurant until I tasted the amazingly fresh version of Panzenella salad. My ahi Tuna on fried egg noodles with green scallions was kmouth watering. The service was accommodating and efficient. They happily prepared the noodles with a grilled chicken beast and Parmesan...

I reviewed this place a little over a year ago and this time took my wife for lunch. All I can say is, awesome. I think there's only 16 seats in this place so it could get very busy. There's not much in the way of ambiance but the service was great and menu had a small but wonderful selection... More

A very nice comfortable little place with great Asian fusion food. Everything was very delicious. When we asked for a bit of fresh basil, they brought it right away. I especially recommend the Ulsan seafood pancake and the seared ahi tuna.

A cute small restaurant just below UCSF Medical in Sunset. This is a great little city to stay in if you are in San Francisco... No McDs or Burger K among the shops and restaurants on Irving and 9th. Pomelo is off this grid a little bit...on Judah and 6th. It is worth finding! I had several meals there but... More
