Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to make a reservation?

Reservations are not required but are highly recommended. For Fridays and Saturdays we recommend at least several weeks in advance, when possible, for prime reservation times. Midweek reservations may usually be made the same week.

How do I make a reservation?

Reservations may be made both on line and by phone. On line reservations may be made 24 hours a day on our website by clicking HERE. Phone reservations may also be made 7 days per week between the hours of 1 pm and 8pm by calling our reservations office at 415.255.ASIA (2742).

What is included?

Our dinner show packages include all food and both of the performances during your dinner-show seating. Except for Wednesday night specials, all patrons must have dinner in order to enjoy the shows. Parties of 6 people or more choosing a Gold, Platinum or Diamond menu will receive souvenir keepsake menus with a personalized menu heading. (example: “Happy Birthday Josie!”). The dinnershow prices do not include: beverages, taxes, or gratuities.

Is there a service charge included in the bill?

For all parties of 6 people or more a 20% service charge will be included.  On all special pricing offers or deal vouchers, promotions, holidays and special events a 20% service charge on the full retail value is included for parties of any size.

Why do you need my credit card number? Do you take a deposit?

We do not take a deposit but we do ask for a credit card number to hold all reservations. Your credit card number will only be charged if you fail to show up for dinner on the day and date of your reservation. SEE CANCELLATION POLICY BELOW. At the end of your meal, you may choose to pay your bill with cash or any credit card(s) you choose to use.

I don't know exactly how many are in my party. Will I be able to make changes to my party size?

Yes. You may reduce the number of people in your party up to 48 hours before your reservation. If there are any changes after the 48 hours, please call to let us know- but we may charge you the $35 per person no-show fee at this late time. If you wish to increase your party size, call us immediately and we will do our best to accommodate your request – but we cannot guarantee you that we will be able to increase your party size.

What is the cancellation policy?

We ask for 48 hours notice if you are going to cancel your entire Friday or Saturday reservation. You may make changes to your headcount up to 48 hours before your reservation as well (if you are trying to ADD people to your party please let us know as early as possible, there are only a set number of seats available and extra seats are not guaranteed after time of booking.) If none of your party show up for your reservation we will charge the credit card you used to make the reservation the per person price of the dinner show package times the number of people that were supposed to show up. If only some of your party fail to show up for your reservation there is a $35 per person no show fee for each missing guest.

Can someone in my party come without eating?

All seats in the dining room are for dinner and the shows. On Friday and Saturday nights, if you have some friends who want to join you for the party without eating, they can meet you in our downstairs nightclub/lounge after you have finished dinner. We can put together a guest list for you so your friends will not have to pay a cover at the door. There is, however, nowhere for non-dinner guests to view the shows.

How old do you have to be to come to the restaurant?

Guests of all ages are welcome to have dinner and enjoy the shows in our main floor dining room every night we are open. However, we ask parties with guests under 21 to book the first seating only on Fridays (7 PM) or on Saturdays (5 PM). For guests who ARE 21 and older, on Friday and Saturday nights, your dinner show reservation also includes complimentary admission to our downstairs dance club/lounge.

Can we just come for the performances and not dinner?

All seats in the dining room are for dinner and the show – it is a “dinnershow”. On Friday and Saturday nights, if you have some friends who want to join you for the party without eating, they can meet you in our downstairs nightclub/lounge after you have finished dinner. We can put together a guest list for you so your friends will not have to pay a cover at the door. But these guests cannot view the show in the maining dining room without having dinner.

What time are the dinner shows?

You may see a list of the daily show times HERE.

Will i see a show at my showtime?

There are performances at every dinner show time. No matter which day or which time you choose you will always see two performances, each with three or four Ladies of AsiaSF performing.

What are the shows like?

The shows are performed by the Ladies of AsiaSF. They are lip-synch, cabaret style shows with choreographed dancing performed atop a red runway stage in the middle of the dining room. Each Lady of AsiaSF has her own style; from popular dance songs, 70s ballads, to more comedic numbers.

What is the seating like? I want the best view.

The red runway stage is elevated and it is in the center of the dining room, so every table has a great view! If you have been here before and have a specific seating request, we can take a note of it and try to accommodate your request. There are NO GUARANTEES that you will be seated in that section, it is just a request. Persons with disabilities/special needs or wheelchairs may need specific seats- and those requests will be honored – please be sure to let us know in advance so we can reserve necessary seating.

Location and Parking

We do not have valet. Street parking is typically easy to find, and the parking meters stop running at 6pm, so it is free after that. (For 5pm Saturday reservations, you will need $3 in quarters if you use on-street parking.) There is paid off-street parking on 8th Street between Market and Mission, but you can usually find closer, free street parking. You may also see an interactive map with directions HERE.
