It is the best place near Telephone Pioneers Communication Museum. Come here for good quail eggs, mussels marinara and soondae if you are hungry. Nicely cooked sesame ice cream, pudding and gâteau are among the dishes to be tried at this restaurant. This place is known for delicious chardonnay, cordial or bitter. Get your meal started with great ice tea, juice or coffee.

Choose between indoor and outdoor seating. The high ratings of Benu would be impossible without the cute staff. Fabulous service is something that people note in their reviews. You are to be pleasantly impressed with attractive prices at this place. The divine decor and spectacular atmosphere let visitors feel relaxed here. It's a three-star Michelin restaurant that is worth a special trip.

Warmly welcomed by such a pleasant server. She recommended the freshly made white sangria which was good. I ordered the corn tostada off the appetizer list. I was hesitant but for no reason at all. The tostada was delectable, I'd recommend it. And try to sit outside if the weather allows.
One of the best restaurants in America that I hope makes it through this time. With impeccable service and amazing food with layers of sophistication that make you cherish every moment you are there. I have not tried your take home dinner option but I am looking forward to real soon. Keep up the perfection and dedication that we all look to get from you.
Hello all,I ordered two entrees for takeaway during this covid pandemic. Total cost was $130 and the food quality was extremely poor. Comparable to a KFC takeaway meal.I was extremely upset and disappointed because I had been waiting to try the restaurant for years. In hopes that the experience would be at least decent from takeaway, it was quite the contrary.I have ordered from Mourad, Aziza, and MINA family kitchen here in San Francisco. Aziza is overpriced for one entree and sides. Mourad is running a special where you pay full price and you cook the food they prep (awful idea).Michael Mina’s experience blows all of these OUT of the water. I would suggest for anyone to go to MINA family kitchen if they are seeking a fine dining experience during the pandemic. 6 different dishes all made with love and passion for $60. Tasting feast to try different genres of food from all over the world.I would definitely NOT recommend spending money at Benu during covid.I emailed about my unsatisfactory experience with the quality of the food and there was not a single attempt to make things right, no thanks to general manager Sinead Quach.If it is possible to lose a Michelin Star during covid, this restaurant has struck the catalyst by allowing awful food to leave the kitchen.Best,Thomas Perkins
