Food was really good, I would especially recommend the imperial rolls!! My partner and I also shared the beef with bamboo and mushrooms and the spicy beef noodle soup. Both were delicious with lots of crunchy vegetables, and portions were big enough that we couldn't...More

This place isn't fancy and you have to walk through the Tenderloin district (through a sea of pee and weed) but boy is it great and cheap! The lemon beef salad was incredibly fresh. The pho was fantastic with layers of flavor, the number 27...More

I live about two blocks from this place located on this filthy 6th street SOMA slum, hitting Tulan's whenever my friend, a HUGE fan of this place, is in town. From the outside, and inside, this nondescript restaurant exudes your average old, greasy, low-quality skid-row...More

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
