We offer Northern California’s seasonal, sustainable, and locally sourced tapas food along with over 75 brands of premium sake, organic Shochu cocktails, as well as eight Japanese and local beers on tap.

We open Street Food window after 11:00pm on the weekends to satisfy the hungry soul of the hip Mission crowd.

Diner Reviews
  • "The Dine About Town meal (which they so nicely extended for 2 days because they had prior commitments for 2 days during the time period) surprised me with the quantity and how AMAZING it was. Chicken karaage was primo, crunchy and oily, but not too oily. The edamame hummus with homemade taro chips was the right balance of garlic and salt and crunch. I think I had some high expectations for the Ramenburger and would have liked a little more sear on the outside of the Ramen. I also had forgotten there was blue cheese on it that was a little too strong in flavor. What took the cake without being a cake was the apple pie gyoza a la mode, crunchy and warm and sweet. A perfect end to this place that I'll definitely return to."

  • "The Miso version ramen burger included blue cheese and shitake mushrooms with kobe and pork belly meat. We also had salty fries with an amazing sweet chili sauce on the side. The service was most outstanding."

  • "had lunch here for two reasons 1. ramenburger - which was oily and bland in some spots and super salty in others GROSS. 2. it was on the list for Dine About Town - big mistake. i would not come here again. Our server, a young asian guy was helpful but not really personable and enthusiastic. However, my gf ordered the okonomiyaki which took about 25 mins to come out. the rest of our party was already finished with our meal. I asked some guy behind the bar where her food was and he rudely said "who's food?" "well i dont know what you are talking about but i'll go check" REALLY BAD customer service on his end. He did come over and apologize as we were talking about writing a review on yelp. LOL"

  • "Went with 2 friends to check out their dine about town offerings. The manager sat us at our table immediately, but took 15 mins before someone took our order. The server had taken orders of two other tables before us, all of whom came after us. The service was not any better through the night. They were either short staffed or their (only) two servers were new. Regardless, the manager apologized for the delay. Also of note, two tables down from us, two men were seated but ended up walking out because no one had approached their table. I don't think the staff even realized that they had walked out. By the time we had our 5th course, I was no longer hungry. I've been trying to convince myself that overall it was a good experience. I can't."

  • "We tried this restaurant for Dine About Town and we're sad to report this place isn't worthy to be a Dine About Town restaurant. I was with a group of 7 and all of us agreed that the food was rather mediocre and the service was ridiculously slow for the venue capacity and limited number of folks dining on a Tuesday night. The salmon sashimi was slimy (who wants slimy sashimi?), the famous ramenburger was extremely greasy (don't go if you have a sensitive stomach), and their rendition of an apple pie (apple gyoza) was worse than the apple turnovers from McDonalds. The wait staff kept messing up our orders and someone in our party was kept waiting for their burger AFTER everyone else had finished theirs. No comps for the inconvenience."

  • "Food was ok but the atmosphere was about as flat as it gets. Service was inattentive and seemed distracted. Not the best."

  • "I came here expecting good things. Inventive-sounding menu, great location. The food was embarrassingly bad across the board, with terrible execution on dishes I had to struggle to eat. I couldn't even choke down my iced tea. Service went from ok to bad when owner could tell we didn't like the food. It was awkward, and then even more so when he had to run my credit card through Square 4 times and made me sign with my bare finger on his broken iPhone screen. To make matters even worse, I never got my 1,000 credits for using my United card, even though it's a certified restaurant. Never again."

  • "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."

  • "The location is convenient but the food, is rather blend. The yaki, or the grill items are not spiced right and not cooked right. Their special ramen burger although has fresh meat, somehow the seasoning is not there to help bring out the essense of a burger."
