Amber is a stylish and utterly terrific Indian restaurant off of Market Street. The food is great, with many excellent vegetarian options. Service was quite good, and the setting is very nice.

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to

this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
