Zao Noodlehouse is like some of the best trendy Asian noodle restaurants in major cities. The difference is a bargain price for excellent
food. Vietnamese style noodle soups or Thai style spicy noodles are combined with many fresh ingedients. The service is great and the staff are friendly. We
love the fresh summer (not spring) rolls - hot noodle soups and pho noodles. Your average bill here of $10 could be double or triple that for the same food in
a candles and white table cloth restaurant. Zao restaurants are located in true San Francisco neighborhoods are are highly recommended.
