Listen to everyone else on trip advisor and went for lunch. By far the best restuarant in San Francisco and amazing value

Very tasty soups. Efficient service. Good prices. You might have to walk past some homeless to get to it depending on route. However we did go twice.

We just loved this place! Ordered 5 dishes to share and all were really tasty, especially the lemongrass deluxe. Cheap prices a well. You must give this place a visit.

Such a great place where you can find vegan menu, so rich and accurate that it will be hard to choose what to eat. I enjoyed as well a great mango with sticky rice as a dessert, it was sooooo gooood! Service is fast and kind, and portions very huge: wait to order for a second course :)

We love coming to Golden Era, despite the dodgy downtown neighborhood. (Their other location on Clement, also with difficult parking, is another option, but not quite as good.) The food is so delicious and we have brought many people, veg and non-veg, all of whom have enjoyed it and asked to go back. With various soups, appetizers, tofu and gluten... More

Was in SF after a few days on the road eating lots of meat. Wanted some healthy food, and saw this place online. The food was absolutely fantastic. Decently priced and very tasty and creative vegetarian food. The kale smoothie was great, as was the vegan pho. This place deserves the great reviews it gets, and would definitely recommend to...

This is not a "romantic" or "fancy" restaurant; the interior is actually very basic (but clean) but the quality of the food is really OUTSTANDING! They could charge 3 times what they do and I'd still be happy to eat there. Goes to show that if you put good quality fresh organic ingredients in the hands of a genial chef... More

After 2 years we went back to Golden Era and it is still good. Dishes are flavorfull and decently priced. Our kids (10 & 13) also still like the food. The service is good. We went for a late lunch (14:30) this time and the restaurant was about 15% full. This meant the food was quick at our table. We... More
