Kitchen Story Ratings and Reviews
They sat us 15 minutes late and ignored us for the first ten minutes we were waiting, even though we had a reservation. The waiter was extremely rude both in the way he spoke to us and practically ripped the menus from our hands when we were done. The food was poor. They also did nothing for the birthday even though they called to confirm we had a birthday on that reservation.
Our first experience overall was lovely and delightful. We visited KS for brunch and lunch while we were visiting Castro District. We were seated right away for brunch and our waiter Kip was polite and attentive, for brunch and lunch. Our first brunch, we ordered Belly Ranchero and Frisco Benedict and it was tastefully delightful. The two Bloody Mary is a must to taste. Our second visit for lunch, we ordered Bulgogi burger and mom’s Benedict-another amazing meal. I would recommend KS and would be back again in our next visit..
"Castro Tower" is one of the Most Delicious! dishes I've ever tasted...will go back just for that. My friend said his pad thai was wonderful. Our party was rushing to a nearby movie so didn't have time to explore more dishes, but look forward to doing so in the near future.
I've been to Kitchen Story twice and had great experiences both times. The food is tasty, and the service is great! The first time, I had a red curry which was the perfect amount of spicy (just enough to make my lips tingle!), and the second time I had the sexy Hawaiian (so much shrimp!). Appetizers were excellent, and the service was friendly. It's a great spot!
The menu was varied and imaginative. The food was tasty and portions are generous.
Overall, it is a good place to go when you are hungry and want a variety of choices, including some very interesting Asian-inspired dishes. The only downside is that seating is quite cramped and the restaurant noise level is high. It is hard to have a conversation without shouting.
Stopped by because it looks ever so festive and cozy. The menu is unusual, which is great. It's an Asian fusion type restaurant, with some very random seeming ingredients in traditional meals. This is kind of exciting! The service is trying but seems over worked. The food was interesting but not 5 stars. I'll go back.
I have passed this restaurant many times and there is always a good crowd. On Sunday mornings, the line to get in is quite long. I went for a weekday lunch with a friend visiting and we both loved the food. Great menu. Super service. Excellent food. Definitely a must try and, for me, a must return!
Found this while looking for places to eat near a concert we were attending. Took one look at the diverse menu and new it was the best place for my crew: a vegetarian, a seafood lover, and a guy cutting out red meat & carbs. We all were happy with the selection. I was blown away with the pumpkin fries! They were gone before I had the chance to instagram them :)
This was a great surprise. We chose it because it is close to the Castro Theater where we were going to see Art Garfunkle through the Commonwealth Club. What a fantastic surprise. The food was outstanding. I had a seafood dish with great sauce and rice that had just enough hot spice to make it interesting. I also tried their Bloody Mary which was a great choice. It was also spicy enough and not too much alcohol because it was made with the Japanese rice whisky. There was actually too much food for all of us (3). The Asian influence made for tasting sensations. We will be back. A great treat and a great find.
