Looking for good Asian fare-- staying in the Financial District

Hello all,
My husband and I will be in SF for one night in the next week. Looking for good Asian fare. Will have car, but don't want to venture out too far. Staying in the Financial District. Husband isn't crazy about Indian, but aside from that we are open to suggestions. Thanks in advance for your help!!

  1. Do you have a particular type of Asian food in mind? Also do you want higher end, hole in the wall or something in between. I could suggest the Slanted Door, I have never been disappointed there but is a pain to get a reservation. Lovely views though. My favorite linoleum and formica table spot is Brandy Ho's by the Transamerica building. I also like Yank Sing for Dim Sum.

    1. Chinatown's not far away. Z&Y Garden (Sichuan) and R&G Lounge (Hong Kong Cantonese) are a couple of board favorites there.

      Osha Thai in 4 Embarcadero Center is good.

      Yank Sing's not open for dinner.

        I am curious: What do you recommend at Osha Thai in E4?

            we go to the one in the Mission, but the menus appear to be the same. i love their Tom Kha - best i've had in a long while, even better than Lers Ros (a place i don't normally get "standard" Thai dishes). also the duck rolls, and the Osha Kobe Bites with caramelized eggplant is to die for. love the beef curry as well.

            but i'd vote going to Z&Y if i had to choose between the two.

        1. A nice walk to City View for Dim Sum.
          I like Hunan Homes IN Chinatown.

          Are you looking for Chinese? Or are you including Thai, Japanese? etc
