i pretty much disagree with everyone. Why is this place so busy? The skewers are essentially flavorless and overcooked and the portions are tiny. I can get a huge plate of stir fried veggies with and rice anywhere in chinatown for a couple bucks and that makes a pretty comparable meal. That's just my take though.
Nothin but the best. Asqew is aswesome. Try the Garlic Mashe Potatoes with the seared ahi skewer.
hit or miss, but 95% hit. I love this place. I go to the one on Haight all the time. In the 20 or so times I've gone, I've had dry skewers maybe twice. Sometimes, but not often, they just leave it on the grill for too long. The salads are delicious, as are the mashed potatoes. My favorite was East/West Pork. I considered them as caterers for my wedding, but then I got a dry skewer and I couldn't do it. This is a fantastic value, no doubt. I can accept an off grill now and again when it's such a great deal, and generally very delicious, healthy food.
For a Cheap Eats it was OK. Well my taste buds are more particular than others I guess. My food was just OK they had run out of Beef (this was right after 4th of July weekend) so maybe I was the one that missed out. The Mashed Potatoes are heavenly, the grilled vegetables tasty, Fudge Brownie dessert was YUUUUMMMY, the beer perfect, I had the pesto Chicken and it was okay I would recommend getting the regular order if you are hungry as the Skewers does not have a lot of meat. Service was very nice and accomodating. Now the bad the jasmine rice was sticky and didn't have a good taste, the polenta was so-so but the Marinara sauce was watery and didn't have much *punch*, the corn on the BBQ skewer was gummy.
Great food. Nice spot on Haight, try the swordfish, its delicious. If your in Hobson's Choice order from there, if your passing by grab some food(its cheapish) and a beer. Service is good and the customers are'nt all hippies and not your posh Marina types either. Definately a place i will visit again and again and.........
sticks and skewers. a clever concept here...everything on the menu is grilled and served on skewers. skewers run about $6-$8/piece. choices range from salmon to thai chicken. try the mashed potatoes...or the grilled corn. everything is pretty much self serve here(kinda like a cafeteria). a good place to grab a quick bite if you're in a hurry.
NOT ALL THAT. I read about this restaurant here on CitySearch and decided to take the family there for dinner last night. The menu was very interesting so we ordered the Thai Chicken, Balsamic Beef, Peppercorn Ahi, Grilled Asparagus, and Tofu. What a dissapointment. The large orders came with 2 skewers and had about 6-8 pieces of meat on it. The sauce was all the same, a too sweet version of American Teriyaki. We spent $50 for dinner, nobody was full and went out for Hot Dogs at afterwards.
Generous portions, tasty sticks!. My boyfriend and I stopped by here while we were shopping. The staff was really nice and helpful. I ordered the Texas BBQ chicken, and my boyfriend ordered the east-west BBQ pork. both were delicious and had really different flavors (even though they were both BBQ). We'll definitely return when we're in that area again.
overcooked and cheap. The place is cheap, but don't be fooled by the high food ratings. Admittedly, I have only eaten there oncve, but the food lacked flavor, was overcooked and uninteresting.
Great food, cheap eats. The food is the best you can get for under $10 in San Francisco. I always take guests from out of town to the grill and I have never heard anything but good things.
