The restaurant is locate on 21st and mission. Easy to get to and find. The style of dinning is small plates intend for sharing. We order about 8 different plates to share for a group of five. Pork belly, chicken sampler, chicken wings (really good), bacon wrapped asparaguses, ahi tuna. I really joy the meal. I would go back again.

Great food bad location
When my wife and I first walked into Nombe we weren't sure we were in the right place. It certainly doesn't have the look or appeal of the foods that they serve. More like a bar that would fry everything. They even have a TV on above their bar. However the food and sake pairings that we had were far above my expectations and I would recommend Nombe solely on their culinary prowess, if nothing else. Service was friendly and professional as well. All in all, we had a good time and I would recommend it to others.

Nombe = Bomb
I had the best b-day dinner at Nombe. The owners, Gil and Nori, made the experience outstanding. Their warm welcoming smiles and friendly demeanor....in addition to the best home cooked Japanese food in the Bay area brought back memories of trips to Japan to visit my Grandmother and the delicious meals she made.
p.s. I need to check into rehab soon...just can't kick the strong craving for mochi wrapped with bacon.

I've been to Nombe a few times and their food execution is spot on every time. The ramen burgers are obviously delicious, and whenever you see brussel sprouts on the menu, order them. The owner has an eye on how long your food is taking and if he feels like it's verging on too long, he has been known personally deliver small glasses of sake to the table to keep you happy- and it does, for me at least. If you're in the mood for some playful Japanese food done right, come here.

Ramenburger is it
We went to Nombe for the ramenburger and it did NOT disappoint. The patty was juicy and the sauce so flavorful. It didn't even need the bacon. Loved the ramen substituting for the bun. It actually made the burger more enjoyable because you're not filling up on bun. It was described as a "slider" but it was the size of an In N Out burger. Also recommend the cod with the quinoa coating--very good texture and the fish was just right. If I lived in the Mission, I'd go there at least twice a month.

I'll be back
Every time I eat here I think, "why don't I eat here more often?". Everything is great! Nice wines, delicious food, wonderful service. This place deserves to be way busier.
