About B Star Bar
B Star takes inspiration from India, Burma, Thailand, China, Japan and California to create a unique menu for brunch, lunch and dinner. Start out your day with a Hijki tofu scramble or chicken croquette hash along with a make-your-own mimosas option. Come in for dinner and enjoy some fried smelt, platha dipper or satay bites before dining on an entrée of spicy duck skin fried rice, pumpkin pork stew or steak tomato kebat. Ask the B Star staff about group seating or special events planning such as a corporate event, wedding or large get-together. B Star requests that you make reservations for parties of seven or more, which can be made online.

B Star Bar Ratings and Reviews
Our group was looking for something a little different and decided that B-Star sounded interesting.
The B Sprouts, Tea Leaf salad and Sautéed Peashoots with garlic were all-around favorites at our table, even more memorable than the entrees! However, the Pumpkin Pork Stew is definitely a favorite among the meat-eaters in the group.
The place is pretty small, but they do take reservations. We arrived a little early and the hostess offered to call me on my cell when our table became available so that we could go get a beer across the street while we waited. That was really convenient and appreciated.
I'm a fan of Burma Superstar and B Star. During my most recent visit we had the tuna crudo and mussels to start, both of which were great. The bar screwed up and didn't bring us our drinks until we were almost done with our entrees, but they comped them so no hard feelings. The chili tofu was great, although I feel like I could get something similar at a decent chinese spot for cheaper. The Khao Soi was very underwhelming and not very good. Overall good, but not great.
A full half-hour by bus from our hotel, we were skeptical to start with. But the service was warm and welcoming, as though we were regulars at this charming and obviously well-loved local restaurant. The appetizers--duck lettuce cups and fried brussels sprouts-- were delightfully different from those we'd tasted at other Asian restaurants, but not a jarring note anywhere. The lamb curry was incredibly tender, and my husband's Salmon curry potpie was superb with a flaky crust that seemed more like croissant dough (and better) than any pot pie topping. And the flourless chocolate cake which was intensely chocolate and not too sweet, was the best I've ever tasted. We will go again any time we are in San Francisco--even it is further from where we are staying.
We had one serious regret, however-- that we had not tried more of the wonderful-sounding appetizers (although I am not sure where we would have put them).
B*Star is one of my favorites restaurants in a city filled with great restaurants. Nearly everyone who comes to visit from out of town I recommend or take to B*Star, and so far everyone to a person has loved the food. The B*Sprouts , Tea Leaf Salad, and Platha Dipper are staples of any dinner there, followed by an array of delicious entrees. Mmm mmm good!
This place is wonderful. It's well designed and casual but the food is top notch. I got the Nicoise salad as a lunch entre which was so hearty that I was full until dinner. We also shared some appetizers and couldn't resist dessert. The sticky black rice was delicious and not too sweet.
We made some dining faux pas like bringing a baby stroller in and the servers handled it with some frustration but were accommodating.
Maybe a year since last time we ate here. Knowing we were going to spend the day in the city, we booked an early table for my family of 5. Everyone loved the food, lots of great flavors. The service was friendly, and overall we had a very enjoyable time. If we lived closer, we would probably become regulars.
Made a reservation,received confirmation,met with my friends, who came out of SF, waited for 45 min, went to near by restaurant to find out that B Star closed on Tues. we've planned a B-day party for our friend, very very upset and disappointed. How would you make a reservation on the day place does not even open?
Love Burma Superstar and love this place usually but most recently the food was much to heavy, oily and carelessly prepared. So much sweet or salty sauce on everything that it wasn't enjoyable. We had a 5:30 reservation so I don't want to believe it was just too slamming for them to be more attentive. Had to wait 15 or 20 minutes for drinks. A bummer.
