This is my favorite restaurant for lunch when I am in downtown San Francisco. You're just not going to believe the size of this place. I dine there at least once a month and I have never had a bad experience. And after you eat, if you wander over to the bakery in the Bristol Market next door, well, don't... More

Wide array of options including Thai, Japanese, Mexican, Italian, and burgers. Also a not too bad vegan option. Located in the basement level of Westfield San Francisco Center, the place can get quite busy at lunch and dinner. Convenient and quick, and recommended if in downtown.

The entire experience at the food court is ruined by simply going into the restroom to wash your hands. If the condition of the public restroom in this food court is any indicator as to cleanliness of the restaurant or their employees avoid this place like the plague.

The food emporium in San Francisco is very popular with people for dining when at the Westfield Shopping Centre in San Francisco. It is one floor down from street level and has a variety of small cafes, food court style. There is comfortable seating. I like to go here when in the area and want a good but quick lunch.... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
