    1. re: Robert Lauriston

      Thanks for the update.

      I'm sure you know that I can no longer edit my original post. I mention it only so other, less frequent posters will understand why I don't.

      1. re: Gerard

        I think only frequent posters know that there was a short period when posts remained editable.

      2. re: Robert Lauriston

        There's a lot of outdated information in this three-year-old topic, so call to confirm hours before going out of your way.

      3. Also, I think that Naan 'n Curry previously located at 478 O'Farrell is now located at 336 O'Farrell.

        1. re: shortexact

          Right you are.

          I'd love to update the original post with your info, but editing is now/again only available for two hours after posting.

          Thanks,
          G

        2. Awesome list, thank you!

          1. Thanks for mentioning Cafe Colma....my parents took me here last time I visited, and it's my new fave. Chinese, Vietnamese, Filipino, and American cuisine all represented.

            1. WOW- If only this had been accessible on my way home from the airport (late) the other night!
              Thanks so much!!

              1. Sumiya, a Japanese yakitori grill place, on Saratoga and Lawrence in San Jose is open til 11 PM every night except for Sundays.

                1. The OP missed Tropical Paradise in Berkeley, open till 11pm.

                  2021 University Ave Berkeley

                  1. Cafe Couleur in Potrero is open till 11 every night.

                    1. People confuse Koryo Charcoal BBQ with Koryo Sushi right next door in the same mini mall. Koryo Sushi is small, cozy, and is open until 2 am or later almost every day.

                      1. re: grocerytrekker

                        Koryo Wooden Charcoal BBQ used to be open until 2am. Are you saying that it is not anymore?

                        1. re: Melanie Wong

                          Don't know what time Koryo Wooden Charcoal BBQ closes (according to OP's list, midnight), but the nice folks at Koryo Sushi told me they are the only ones open that late, quite busy at that hour, it sounds like. I've heard bad things about Koryo BBQ's food anyway.... but Koryo Sushi would be definitely worth checking out at that hour. Can someone stay up late and report back?

                          Sushi:

                          1. re: grocerytrekker

                            I've only heard good things about Koryo, and it's general reputation has long been "best Korean restaurant in the Bay Area." Others swear by Brothers in S.F. There are likely many other restaurants vying for that reputation. It really comes down to preference when selecting "the best" of anything, but it's hard to imagine anyone who likes/ knows Korean food not ranking Koryo near the top.

                            Koryo Sushi is open until at least 2 or 3 am. I've had many a late-night meal there. It's really good, and one of my favorite East Bay sushi places, but as it's Korean-run, don't expect super-traditional Japanese sushi.

                            1. re: peasprout

                              In a recent thread, Oghane beat Koryo hands down. I think Koryo's good, and I enjoy the atmosphere, but I doubt anyone would say the food's better than Shan Maru or Oghane. And there's a litany of other east bay korean - really, go find the post.

                              1. re: bbulkow

                                Yeah, but Ohgane closes at 11, and I think Sahn Maru's now closing at 10:30.

                      2. Says it above, but I missed it in the mass of detail: I noticed last night that the Naan 'n' Curry on O'Farrell is open 24/7.

                        1. CAV in SF -- the kitchen is open until 11 p.m. (Monday-Thursday); 12 a.m. (Friday-Saturday)

                            Add one more 24/7 choice for San Jose:

                            Cardinal Coffee Shop & Lounge

                              2. re: coolbean98

                                Sahn Maru now closes at 10pm on Sundays. People kept coming up and banging on the door. On the way out I brought it to their attention that the sign still said 11.

                                Korean Kitchen at the end of the block is open till midnight or later.

                                        Sad news that they've cut back the late hours on Tuesday and Wednesday.

                                          Had a late night snack at Maritime East with my fiance after watching "Sex in the City". Didn't order a Cosmo :), but my favorite Stormy Sunset was $5. Shared a perfectly cooked, medium rare burger and some good-sized oysters. For late night in the Albany-Berkeley area, this place is a great alternative to Fonda or A Cote. We just go to Fonda too often. IMO, what we had at Maritime is as good as other late night places but more economical.

                                            Two newish places in the Mission are also open on the later side:
                                            Beretta, on 22nd and Valencia, is open until midnight every day
                                            Monk's Kettle, on 16th and Albion serves food until midnight, albeit not the full menu

                                        3. Home, on Market and 14th, is open until midnight

                                            Sinaloa taco truck at 23rd ave and International in Oakland is open till like 3am on weekends

                                          2. Rudy's Cant Fail Cafe is open until 1am everyday. Good diner food. Hot tattooed servers (with attitude--go with it). $1 beers from 9pm-1am everynight. Beats the hell out of Denny's or Nations. Note: sometimes the music is loud (punk rock)--not a place for those looking for a quiet, romantic evening, or for folks who are hard of hearing, but a fun late nite hash house with breakfast served all day.
