    If you are going to eat here (preferably on an expense account) at least get one of the Japanese-French fusion plates. Sushi better had elsewhere.

    I'm really upset with the service at the Chaya restaurant in San Francisco. Last Friday i had my purse stoled at the restaurant and the servers couldn't do nothing about it.

    All night happy hour in the bar area - with some specials for food also (I love the spicy tuna which is only available in the bar area), or you can order off the regular food menu if you want.
