butternut squash soup.
oooo the butternut squash soup was amazing; i had no idea it would taste so great. it kind of reminds me of Indian Curry.
we ordered a grilled artichoke as an appetizer and it was okay but i definitely favored the soup above that.
i forgot what i had for a meal but i remember my significant other giving me a bite of his Thai BBQ and that was YUMMY... well, it had to have been good 'cause it made me forget what i had ordered. :)
i don't remember how the service was; i was too busy giving my food the attention it deserved. ^_^
2007/08/13 - i just remembered, all i had was a grilled artichoke to share (add some lemon for flavoring) and the butternut squash. yep, i definately need to o back for more. yummy!
Best fresh healthy grill. This has got to be the best food I have ever had in my life! Great prices too! I live in Sacramento CA and I have never felt like I needed to drive 2 hours just to eat somewhere and Asqew Grill makes me CRAVE their food. Everything is grilled so while it is super tasy ,it is super healthy as well. After eating their food you don't feel bogged down and gross. I highly recomend the artichoke starter. It has a sauce I believe called soy beurre blanc...that is absolutely to die for. The sauce is an absolute explosion of flavors in your mouth. I get the artichoke all to myself along with a skewer platter...and I won't share....thats how good it is:-) I have only been to the one location on the marina. I wish they would build an Asqew in or near Sacramento...Anyways you must rty this place! P.S. the banana split is amazing too!
NICE PLACE - GOOD FOOD. Easy and fast food- tastes healty. Nice atmosphere filled with energy. Service was speedy and staff were friendly.
Heaven on a skewer. Is there anywhere better than Asqew? It's cheap, it's easy, it's healthy, and I could drink their soy beurre blanc sauce by the gallon. I think it's wonderful that it's popping up all over as a chain, even though none of them seem to be quite as good as the haight and castro locations. I've yet to try a dessert b/c I'm always so full from my meal, but they look/sound really good (ie a grilled apple sundae). It's got options for everyone, everything from meat and potatoes to tofu and veggies, all grilled to charry perfection.
This casual restaurant dishes out fresh food on a stick..
This Upper Haight eatery draws a dressed-down crowd and the sliding picture window provides prime people-watching opportunities. Order from the counter and take a seat. The menu's specialty is gourmet skewers served with sides such as garlic mashed potatoes and citrus couscous. Options vary depending on availability, but expect dishes like herb salmon dressed with lemon-wine vinaigrette and chicken or beef in a Coca-Cola-based "Thai" marinade.
Pretty Good. I like most of the sauces and the fish skewers are really good. The chicken is very tender, but the lamb and and beef are too tough and chewy. Mashed potatoes are good, salads are weak. All in all a good spot for under $10. Staff is casual and friendly.
Not good for three or more. While the food is ok, the seating is a problem. Most tables are for two, and there is an unposted rule that you can't sit down at a table till after you order. We didn't know this and were asked to give up our table after waiting 30 minutes for food. We went up the street and found a place where we were treated properly.
A True Gem in the Haight. After shopping on Haight St with my gf and her brother, we were starving and stumbled across this place...it was our lucky day! I had the chicken skewer with the pesto sauce and it was simply AMAZING! I would go back a second, third, fourth,....time.
what a find!. My boyfriend and I are always on the lookout for cheap, healthy, great-tasting food. This was a gem of a find. Particularly nice is the option of half-orders, which is totally adequate if you're not starving. Definitely try the suggested combinations. We'd probably go on a weekly basis if it weren't for the parking hassle in the Haight.
User review by conoiseur. This place serves some really good affordable food. The food is fresh, grilled to perfection, and overall excellent. I ordered the half portion for dinner, and it was enough to reach full satisfaction. There's something about their jasmine rice that makes it better than any jasmine rice I ever had. This place is definitely good for the money concious individual who also seeks good healthy flavorful food.
