“All dishes disappointing ”
Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

As a party of 5, we all found ourselves not enjoying our entrees. The tom kha stock was watery and tasted bland. The cashew chicken tasted like it was from a food court.
4 of us had eaten here in previous years and had been excited to return. We were all shocked to find such a dramatic change in quality.

“Awesome Veggies”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We are only in San Fran for 5 days, and the Citrus Club is just around the corner from our hotel. We stumbled into it the first evening, jet lagged from London. Miso soup stuffed with amazingly tasty shitake mushrooms (they soak in anisette and citrus) and just blanched pan choi..was a perfect choice for eating at what was UK time 3am. We've been back 3 times, Addictive seaweed salads, crisp green papaya salad, the vegetables zing. I even regretted trying the Magnolia gastro pub down the road, the one evening I thought we should try something different. And for a house red, the Cabernet is a smooth full bodied mouthful without a tannin in sight..Using that wonderful American phrase, truly awesome

“Gotta do this one!”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

This place is fantastic. The best Asian food I've outside, or inside Asia. Had their Cashew Chicken (or some other nut chicken). It was superb, flavours gushed out of it and the price was well within reason.

“The Best Chicken Soup”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

Stopped by the Citrus Club with a hankering for noodle soup, also had a cold and was craving chicken noodle soup. Ordered an egged chicken noodle soup with veg, and it was the best! The portion was huge, and could not stop eating this soup even though I was stuffed. My gf had a cold buckwheat salad and she really liked it too. Great value, tasty dishes, service ok. Recommended.

“Awesome noodle joint.”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Simple, tasty, fresh, affordable. What else do you want!? I had the Tom Ka coconut soup with shrimps. Huge bowl of soup, with the freshest of ingredients and plump yummy shrimps. Just what I felt like. ;-)
