Decent enough. Since we wanted something else from the Moscone West center, we went across the street to this establishment. Think Chipotle but with a Vietnamese flair. Picking your own ingredients for a roll, bowl... and then pick your sauce. Not a lot of seating, but people move quickly in and out. next time for a quick bite, will revisit.

Each dish is prepared in front of you, all fresh vegetables/salad with no hidden sauces or ingredients. The restaurant has free water on tap so grab yourself a low calorie deliciously healthy lunch. The restaurant itself is pretty basic, just fast-food style benches and tables, however you are here for the food, not the restaurant.

This location of Freshroll is located on 4th Street between Howard and Mission streets. It has a large sign outside so it is easy to find. My wife and I went there for a Sunday lunch on the early side and were able to immediately place our order at the back counter. Lots to choose from including salads, sandwiches, and... More

We ordered for two rolls one with tofu and another with prawns. I liked the prawns one as compared to tofu cause tofu was over cooked. It had lost all its moisture and hence did the roll did not taste well even with the sause.

The line was out the door when I arrived with a friend, but we were at the counter within ten minutes. I ordered a noodle bowl with lemongrass pork (even though I wanted pho, but that's only served on weekdays after 3) and my friend got 3 fresh rolls, each with a different meat. We also grabbed a few sauces:... More

We are vegan and this place is a dream. My daughter ate fresh rolls from here 3 days in a row. Food is made right in front if you, fresh and absolutely delicious. Service is quick and friendly! Love it!

The line of people stretching out on the sidewalk during the lunch hours is a good indication that the food is great. Very convenient to the Moscone center. Wish they'd have these on the East Coast.

I got the three fresh rolls and they were great. The vinegar vegetables and dipping sauces were amazing. Oh man those dipping sauces were great. The citrus one and peanut one were my favorite (yes I did try them all and I suggest you do too). Overall its similar to a Vietnamese Qdoba.

Neighbourhood Profile
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 find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
