Useful information


Reservations are a challenge at this modern stunner with a killer view of the Bay Bridge. The Slanted Door has managed to stay atop tourists’ hit lists even as its Northern Californian spin on Vietnamese food has steadily become less inspired. It’s an efficient and professional place, but with little warmth; the hospitality is hit-or-miss at best. Instead of the cellophane noodles with crab or overpriced shaking beef, diners should stick to more solid offerings like gau choy gow, featuring pan-fried dumplings with Gulf shrimp and garlic chives accompanied by a zippy soy and fish-sauce dip. Take advantage of this kitchen's varied repertoire by sampling more than one of their vegetable sides, like the crisp and spicy broccoli with pressed tofu. - MICHELIN guide inspectors
