Service
 
Some of the city's "top" Asian-fusion fare can surprisingly be found in North Beach at this "small" but "mighty good" "eclectic" stalwart that "continues to impress" with its "phenomenal" "high-caliber" dishes ( "especially the melt-in-your-mouth sea bass" ), presented along with an "amazing" sake and wine list by an "accommodating" team; the "cramped, noisy" setting is "maybe not the best romantic date-night choice" , but fans attest it offers some of the best "food and value" in the city.

Hidden gem. Everything from appetizers to main course is delicious. The service is usually very fast. Seating capacity is small based on the demand. Making a reservation is always a good idea. Lot of fun bars around the vicinity for post dinner drinks

Visited this place last year. Had to wait for over an hour for a table for two here at dinner time. It was worth it. What I loved most was the scallop dish. The pork paired with pomegranate sauce was delightful. The food incorporated Asian touch with unusual flavor combinations in harmony while preserving modern Western technique on it. Very tasty, very clever and innovative and offers good value for money too.

Worst service ever!!! My friend tried to make a reservation and was told they do t take them. When we arrived we were told that there was a 30 min wait so we went for a walk around the block. We came back 45 min later to check in because we still had t heard from the restaurant. The host told us 3 times that he was cleaning a table for us...yet then proceeded to sit someone else. When I confronted him about the wait and that everyone that came after is was set before us, he didn't so much as apologize. All he said is that everyone except for us had a reservation. I call BS on that and will NEVER try to go there again!!!!!
