Places for a quick bite near the Castro Theater

There doesn't seem to be much on the Castro in the archives. I need places nearby where I can grab a quick meal in between film noir. I realized that I had not eaten in the Castro in along time. There used to be a good Chinese restaurant on the street just south of Castro, but that was many years ago.

  1. Thai House Express, 19th & Castro. Fuzio is quick and a few doors down, nothing special but serviceable.

    1. House of Chen-335 Noe Street
      Home- Market/Church
      Thai House Express - on Castro
      Chow- on Church

        Nothing too quick about Home or Chow, plus they're not even that close to the theater.

          They could do door to door MUNI which would take no time. At certain times a day you can get a quick meal, just depends.

        1. Some friends and I recently had a very good meal at Ararat on 18th at Castro just before catching the restored "Black Orpheus" at the Castro Theater. It was very good and everything quite flavorful. They describe themselves as being predominantly mediterranean small plates, but the entrees were very generous and the lamb shank in particular was very tasty.

          1. Two very nice spots in the Castro.
            Eureka - 18th and Castro, be sure to make reservations.
            2223 Market - Market Street between Sanchez and Noe, fun and delicious!

            Both within walking distance to the Castro Theatre. Enjoy...
