The wait staff are very ready to guide you through Pomelo's intriguingly different menu. There are lots of wonderful choices for those who prefer not to eat meat. I had the ayacucho - grilled fish of the day with quinoa cakes, a delicious roasted sweet pepper coulis, avocado and yam crisps. Fabulous!! A good choice of wines was available, albeit from a limited list, and you have a gourmet selection of teas to choose from to round of the meal. I tried the Numi organic Mate Lemon, which is now my firm favorite tea!

I returned to Pomelo a second time on this trip and was once again pleased with the service, ambiance and good value prices. This time the restaurant was busy, so reservations may be a good idea if you are planning a special date.

Had a catch up dinner with a friend at the Church St location in Noe Valley directly in front of the J train. The place is intimate but roomy enough to accommodate two parties of six when we were there and a few outdoor tables. There were a few couples on dates too. As promised, the menu represented its interpretation of global dishes with international names - Koh Samui for curry chicken, New Orleans for gumbo, etc. We started off lemonades, moved onto polenta/mushroom, panko encrusted chicken tender/egg plant/yam/zucchini and for main dishes - gumbo, nan (a little confusing as this is Thai porridge) and finished off with opera cake and coffee/tea. Everything was tasty and fresh. The portions were just right - not too small and not too big. The bill came out to about 60 not including tax/tips. Pretty reasonable for a place with great ambience and really tasty food. I would love to come back and try other things on the menu. I hear brunch is great too.

Great neighborhood place, but parking may be tough. Unusual menus but the food is great. A fusion of Asian, vegetarian and Cuban choices. Well worth the trip to Noe Valley. Take the "J"

Best meal where noodles and grains meet. Very much enjoyed their fish with noodle dish. It was fun to go where the locals go. Small, casual restaurant in the Noe Valley area. Great prices also for wonderful entrees!
