Three of us, habitues of Savory Orient, ate at the Savory BISTRO the other night. What a disappointment! The house special duck was over-done, the pad thai just okay, the soup mediocre, and the prawn dish had two under-cooked prawns. That we were the only guests in the whole restaurant at dinner hour should have warned us. I do hope... More

While the decor is the same, the menu has changed. There are now French, Italian, and Moroccan dishes as well as Thai. (Yes, I know France is not "the Orient.") My review is mixed. The "wild mushroom" appetizer had very tame mushrooms - shitake and portabella, but was tasty in a tomato cream sauce. The main flavoring was ginger and... More

I had lunch there today. I found it online and was curious what fusion meant in San Rafael for Thailand. What I look for is layers of flavor and it needs to be above the norm. From being seated to leaving it took 45 minutes without dessert. Light room, not so busy. I got the lunch combo. Value here as... More

My wife and I were in San Rafael in the springtime. We were walking the street fair that takes place every week, and we were getting hungry. We like Chinese cuisine so we went to Savory Orient on C street. Let me tell you the food was FANTASTIC! We have never tasted Asian food so good. We returned the next... More

We went for dinner. Lots of parking across the street. Interior was very nice. This restaurant has a very diverse asian food menu. We liked the Korean Beef with Spinach and the Shanghai noodles. It has the most interesting and unique asian food menu in Marin. Food was delicious.

My wife and I wandered in here before heading to the Rafael theatre. Not knowing what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised to be served an excellent Thai meal. We started with a spicy and sour prawn soup with mushrooms and tomatoes in a light broth flavored with lemmon grass. Then I had a very nicely-prepared alaskan cod sauteed in... More

Food and service is consistently good. This place is a little off to the side on a side street so it doesn't seem to get very busy. Their corn fritters (which are only at dinner) are amazing! For lunch they have a special "lunch club" menu where you assemble your meal as you like from a series or courses.
