Hi, a few friends and I will be visiting union square west this weekend, and I was curious if anyone had any recs for moderately priced, unique dining options. Two of us are vegetarians, so any restaurants with veggie options are a big plus. We are mainly hoping to find a place that offers international fare, especially indian or japanese, but any other worthwhile options are very much appreciated.

We're staying at the Hilton, and the closer proximity to the hotel, the better. I have been there once before and there were so many options to choose from, I didn't know where to start. Thanks so much for your help!!!

    We call the neighborhood to the west of Union Square the Tenderloin. Lots of Pakistani and Vietnamese restaurants.

      Robert listed some great links.

      The veggies may want to check out Golden Era, an all veggie Vietnamese restaurant on O'Farrell. There's also Millennium, an vegetarian fine dining restaurant, on Geary.

      Shalimar offers some of the best Indian around. Just be prepared to leave smelling of curry and naan! Colibri offers upscale Mexican in a fun environment. If you're up for a little walk or bus ride, Saha over on Sutter offers some really delicious Arabic fusion.
