Took our medical office (8 people) to dinner on a Friday night and the staff loved the experience to the MAX - great food and entertainment - and yes the "girls" at sf asia are hot.

“Cheesy, yet mildly amusing. Not for foodies!”
Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

We were hoping for a fun place to celebrate a big birthday for our brother. He had heard good reviews of Asia SF and put it on his Bucket List! We arrived and waited outside on their "red carpet". Once we checked in, they shuffled us downstairs to their bar. It was dark, loud, and full of party goers! A little uncomfortable at first and hard to carry on any conversation. Since we had a party of 3, they could only seat us at the bar. Only big parties got the tables. It was literally elbow to elbow! Their menu was average at best. Seemed to take forever and was nothing to write home about. The bartenders were cute and on top of it, which was one of the few highlights of the place. FYI, drinks are not included in the $50 per person price. The drag show was cheesy but mildly amusing. The majority of customers were bachelorette parties! We decided to bail after the show and skip the nightclub. Now we can mark that not only off the Bucket List...but now to the Overrated List.

“Food was so slow we walked out.”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

We went to Asia SF for dinner and a show. We got there a little before our reservation and were hearded downstairs to their dance club. It was empty yet still they had very little seating. We got called up and we were seated at the bar. This place is SMALL. Even the seats at the bar were placed close together. There was hardly any room to walk between the tables and bar...very uncomfortable. The bathroom was atrocious! We ordered our appetizer and got to see the first show. The show is a lot of fun. We waited around 30 minutes for the appetizer and it was average (satay). We waited over half an hour for our main course (it is supposed to be a 3-course meal served by the performers). We decided it was not worth the wait and left.

“Dinner and Entertainment - Very good & fun”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Asia is a very unique place. We love the food there. There menu is one of the most interesting, tapas style. A great place to taste and share. AND then there is entertainment on the bar. Don't want to spoil it, but I highly recommend for those with an open palette and mind.

“You are in San Francisco...why not???”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

This is a girls night out place! The service and food was excellent. Sat at the bar with a full view of the show. The "women" were stunning, friendly and professional. Great place for a celebration of anything!! Didn't stay, but I understand there is a dance room downstairs.
