restaurants in Noe Valley near the Ministry?

I am planning to go to a concert at the Noe Valley Ministry (21st & Sanchez) tomorrow night. given the weather, I was wondering if there's somewhere nearby to get a bite to eat before the show; someplace low key and not too pricey. I know the neighborhood isn't exactly great for places to eat, so I'm not going to be too picky; but fast food is out. Is there anything within an easy walk to the Ministry? It would be nice to scour for parking only once... if there isn't anything, a suggestion or two for somewhere not too far away and parkable (hah) would be helpful.

We especially like Indian and Thai, for reference.

  1. Unfortunately Indian and Thai are not what you want to eat in Noe Valley. Okay, I almost never want to eat in Noe (and I live here).

    Sawadee Thai (up 24th st above Castro) is pleasant enough, if bland. Fresca? I haven't been to this branch.

    I'd probably eat on Guerrero near 22nd and park in between: Kiji, La Provence, Tao Cafe, Liberties The ministry is at 23rd and Sanchez btw.

    1. Venture a few blocks over to 21st and Valencia and eat at DOSA! Its amazing south Indian food. They have amazing crepe-like dishes.
