Why did we dine here? – Turtle Tower is a popular Vietnamese restaurant in San Francisco with several locations. We dined at the original, located in the heart of the gritty Tenderloin District of San Francisco. It moved down the block and reopened in June 2013 and added banh mi sandwiches.
Insider Tip – Bring cash. Go down the block and purchase some other Vietnamese food.
Cuisine – Vietnamese
Location – San Francisco Tenderloin
Opened – 2000
Service – Turtle Tower had typical service for a mom and pop joint. The place is small but you will probably need to hail down servers to get things done.
Verdict – Turtle Tower serves up inexpensive bowls of quality Pho. This original location is renowned by many to be their best location.
Turtle Tower Signature Dishes – Pho
Turtle Tower’s Menu includes many Pho dishes along with a variety of other entrees and appetizers.
Turtle Tower Food Picks:
Pho Tai Gau ($7.80 large) Rare and Well-done Beef (Flank or Brisket) Noodle Soup was a classic bowl of piping hot noodles along with tendor beef. This definitely hit the spot although a recent version at Tamarine was even better, albeit at almost double the price.
Pho Ga ($6.20 small) Chicken Noodle Soup – was their most popular dish. A steaming hot bowl of the same rice noodles topped with chicken that still had bones and skin.
Che Ba Mau ($2.95) Three Color Bean Dessert – was a bit sweeter than most, and it also possessed lots of firm beans.
OK: (Order if you like this dish)
Pans: (We would not reorder these dishes)
