Tu Lan is the best value in San Francisco! Do not hesitate the food is that good. The location is center of Market St so expect homeless folks and drug addicts as you make your way but do NOT let that detour you. The food...More

Everyone had something different and huge plates of wonderful Vietnamese food. Fresh veggies and bean curd for me as a veggie but heaps of meat and fish dishes as well. Friendly hosts and servers and very fast!

Hidden in a corner of the main market street is this very decent and affordable Vietnamese restaurant.. No frills but their pho is great! The broth is slightly spicy but very appetizing. Had the pho, spring rolls and the grilled pork... All for 33 dollars....More

We walked over from the Int'l arts museum (1025 Market), and of course lots of homeless on 6th ave. First thing we noticed, full of young people, so should be good. The portions are generous, the prices are low, and the most important thing -...More

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

Upon the recommendation of a SF native, we ate lunch here (mostly because it was across the street from Golden Gate Theater). What a treasure! The Imperial Rolls alone are worth the trip, even without a ticket to the theater. When we arrived at noon,...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

This Vietnamese restaurant is cheap and good. It's a bargain "fast food" type place. It's a small, tight and crowded place that works on volume, so don't go if you are looking for a cozy, leisurely lunch. However, service is quick and the food is...More

This is a good spot before theatre. Quick service. A very broad menu. Decor is Chinatown pre-1935. Like others say huge servings determined by the plate size, not calorie count. We'll be back.

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
