A friend recommended this place and we were not disappointed. Everything on the menu is delicious and very flavorful without being salty (like Kin Khao is horribly salty). So far, we've tried their scallops, salmon roll, sea bass, grilled octopus, mussels, BBQ pork ribs, soft...More

Based on previous reviews, we tried The House on our last night in San Francisco for dinner. We had the flatiron steak with wasabi noodles and my friend had the salmon. Both were superb. However, save room for dessert, as we had the chocolate truffle...More

My “discovery” of The House is the reason I rely so heavily on TA reviews. Finished a tour of Chinatown and wanted to stay in area for lunch. How to begin to choose? Easy- popped onto TA and searched for “restaurant near me”. This was...More

Amazing Asian fusion meal. We had a family meal here during our visit to san Francisco, and it was delicious. The soft-shell crab was spectacularly presented and delicious, and the main course of grilled sea bass was terrific. Everyone was impressed. The restaurant is crowded...More

A North Beach classic. Fusion food perfectly prepared using the finest ingredients. Family run and a terrific staff. Be sure to save room for their house made deserts.

Finest preparation, perfect fusion food ! An incredible treat. Best restaurant we ate at during our 3-weeks tour of the West coast. Totally worth the price, which was actually far from expensive.

Worth all the hype, the food is amazing, both tasty and instagram-worthy. The only down side--it's very small, with tables really close together, and an almost-deafening level of noise. Also only one rest room--be prepared to wait in line.

In an active and colorful neighborhood you'll find this small gem of a restaurant. The interior is 'snug,' but the delicious food is abundant in flavor. Many options from beef, chicken, fish, pork, noodles, rice and tasty vegetables.

Very popular Asian cuisine. Good food with beautiful dress-up for a reasonable price. Owner is able to mix new guests with her many reservations.

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.

The prices are not outrageous or anything to worry about unless you are on a tight budget. The portions are not huge but it is worth it. I would say it is midrange for SF and KBcolumbus is correct on the ranges. To quote... More

You may call them at (415) 986-8612. Reservation is highly recommended unless you go there a few minutes before opening: 11:30 for lunch and 5:30 for dinner.

Not exactly sure what the question is here. This place is a trendy fusion restaurant. It's crawling with tech-savvy yuppies. The food is mediocre at best, and overpriced from my point of view. In SF, people go with the... More
