Charles Phan’s The Slanted Door serves a modern interpretation of classic Vietnamese street food, with a focus on locally-sourced, fresh ingredients. Located in an airy and relaxed new space in the Ferry Building, it has become a must for food-loving visitors; a meal here, overlooking San Francisco Bay, is not to be missed. — Allison Beck, 2/18/11



  • claypot chicken is amazing
  • Charles Phan broke the mold for modern Vietnamese food when he opened the original, and the current incarnation remains the standard-bearer of ingredient-driven Asian cuisine. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Unforgettable yellowtail with shallots app. Tim and Nate at the bar are amazing.
  • The crab with cellophane noodles is a's #7 on 7x7's Big Eat SF 2010
  • Vietnamese street food meets West Coast farmers markets in this hip see-and-be-seen spot. Try the barbecued Willis Ranch pork ribs with a honey-and-hoisin sauce.
  • Try Charles Phan's take on Chinese cuisine for late night supper. -Roy Yamaguchi, Top Chef Masters
  • Quite possibly my favorite restaurant in the country.Humble family recipes from Vietnamese Chef Charles Phan, made exceptional with locally-sourced ingredients, all overlooking the San Francisco Bay.
  • Make a reservation
  • If you do not have a reservation ... you can usually get in for lunch. If you'd like a dinner reservation make it in advance, the sunset view and delicious food are too amazing to miss.
  • food is great, hostess is a biotch
  • 7x7's Big Eat 2012 says the cellophane noodles with crab are delicious. Yum!
  • A Vietnamese restaurant with great views of the Bay and an even better pre-fixe menu for lunch.
  • Wow perfect!!!
  • Get the Shaking Beef :)
  • The move here, one I make on practically every San Francisco visit, is the late lunch c. 215pm when the bar has cleared out and the sunlight shifts. Chicken claypot did the trick this time. Next?
  • whatever you do, order the spring rolls.
  • Rice cakes are so f*cking good
  • Is it possible to mouth-orgasm? If so, this place took my gspot and made all kinds of oral love to it. The shaking beef will CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
  • One of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco. Offers classic and contemporary Vietnamese food. Big high energy room. A must see when in SF. -Rick Tramonto, Top Chef
  • One of the best restaurants in SF. For appetizers we ordered the Dumplings, the Yellow Tail sashimi, the Oysters and the Tuna Tartare and the Crispy Vegetarian Imperial Rolls. Unforgetable!
