  • "Great food... Unique entertainment... Sexy surroundings...a flashy, fun experience." "The entire experience at AsiaSF comes together with a comfortable style that's never tawdry or tacky. It's fun, but not freaky."

"I took four unsuspecting coworkers here on our last night in town, and "forgot" to mention the real appeal of ASF. Because where is the fun in spoiling the surprise? In case any of you unsuspecting readers think you're perusing a page for an Asian restaurant with fine-looking servers... well you'd be kinda right. However you'd be missing the entire point of ASF's trademark, their claim-to-fame, their je ne sais quoi, if you will. The servers and DJ are drag queens and/or transgender beauties who perform on the red bar once you've been served. Oh yeahhhhhhhh."

"Seriously, one of the most fun, delicious meals ever!  My husband found it (again, courtesy of our fellow Yelpers).  We immediately felt right at home, the service was friendly and sassy and just plain fun.  We ordered our 3 courses each, and then came the big surprise!  Dancers!!  It was so much fun and such great energy.  I wanted to hang out here all night.  I had the mussels, which were abundant, my husband and I both gorged ourselves and couldn't finish the bowl.  The broth they swam in was addictive as crack, we had to order more garlic bread to sop it all up.  My husband had the tuna sashimi app, which was good in its own right."

"This is a San-Francisco must-do! There is simply no other place like it. It is one of the most entertaining dining experiences I've had. The atmosphere is trendy and classy with just the right kinda naughty and nice entertainment San Francisco is known for. The ladies are STUNNING and extremely talented. The show is both impressive and hilarious at times. The service was fantastic and the food and drinks good. You will enjoy yourself. AsiaSF is warm, entertaining welcome to San Francisco."

"Futuristic Shoji screens backlit with color morphing optics provide a way-feng-shui, high-tech, mood altering milieu while convincing gender illusionists serve Cal-Asian cuisine."

"Extremely hard to get into but absolutely worth the effort.  Asian cuisine served to you by "Gender Illusionists".  It's wildly over the top and that's why we love it."
