Where should we eat on Valencia near 22nd (the Marsh)? [San Francisco]

We're all Marinites with less and less exposure to fun new places in SF. All cuisines are fine, reservations essential and mid range in price - $20-22 per entree. Nothing too precious, please, just solidly good.
Thanks in advance...

  1. Check out Aslam's Rasol on Valencia between 21st & 22nd.
    We enjoy the Mixed Tandori Grill and the Seafood Curry.
    Good wine and beer selection too. Be adventurous

        would recommend DOSA. aslam's rasoi is good, but probably nothign you can't get in marin

          What are you liking at Nombe these days?

          1. re: mlutsky

            Not too much farther away is an izakaya called Yuzuki at 18th and Guerrero which I think is a whole lot better than Nombe.

            1. re: Tripeler

              I've not been a Nombe fan either. But it's been through so many changes in the kitchen with a new chef as of January, hopefully for the better. When were you last at Nombe?

              1. re: Melanie Wong

                I was there in the summer of last year.
                This spring I tried Yuzuki for the first time, and found it was much better and more focused.

                1. re: Tripeler

                  Thanks, that might have been a trough for Nombe. We haven't heard much on this board about it other than a discussion of the beef ramen, iirc. Reports on Yuzuki have been positive. I haven't been there yet, but it's probably the only one of the "izakayas" in SF that I'd be interested in. Had a taste of the soft tofu at a catered event.

          2. That price point would cover pretty much any place along Valencia. Range and Foreign Cinema come to mind, though they might miss on the "fun new place" score, but nail the "solidly good" requirement.

            For "new" I'm curious to try Lot 7. Looks good from the curb, reasonably crowded. But I have not been there. Anyone else here have a report?

            St. Vincent is another new place that has been getting good reviews here. Another place I'm waiting to go to.

            1. Try St. Vincent (new!) on 24th at Valencia (next to Arizmendi Bakery) or Garcon at 23rd and Valencia...both are excellent!
