The place may look shabby, but once you get over the décor you may just enjoy yourself. There's always a different crowd so it varies. (Hit or miss) They have a killer view of Union Square on a clear night, and the staff is decent and accommodating at times. I was here a couple of weekends ago for my bday and had a blast. Although the dance floor is teeny, we were able to shake a little something with everyone else. As a side note, I was given some crazy cocktail with an odd flavor (Coconut Infused Vodka?) with pineapple juice, shouldn't have indulged for I was sick the next day. We coined it the "Roofie drink" ;)

Don't come here solely for the food. Don't come here solely for the entertainment. If you come for both, you'll almost get your money's worth. We arrived without reservations and as an AsiaSF virgin, the guy, who seemed like a manager at the time, gave me the run down that on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, we had to order off a prix-fixe menu at $33/person. For $33, each person has a choice of an appetizer, entree, and dessert. Beverages, alcoholic or not (excluding tap water), have a running tab. We ordered the blackened tuna sashimi and a steak salad for our appetizer, crab cakes and filet mignon for our entree, and the beignet split and a muscat for dessert. The sashimi was not the best, but the salad was decent. The filet entree was good; the meat was tender, but was lacking in flavor. The filet was served with potato stars, which were like french fries, and became the absolute favorite part of my meal. I also can't complain about the beignet split, but I wasn't a fan of the muscat, which I didn't finish. As for the entertainment... We stayed long enough to catch 2 shows even though the manager told us we could only catch one. They gave us an hour and 45 minutes to eat and hang out, enough time to watch just one show, but we stayed a bit longer anyway. It didn't surprise me that most of the trans-sexual performers were Filipino. You can find them in great abundance if you visit Boracay in the Philippines. The show was entertaining, but I wasn't impressed by the Caucasian performer. I'm not being biased, but I think Filipino trans-sexuals practice a bit more, especially if they came from the Philippines; they have the tendency to be more flamboyant. The highlight of my evening? The entertainment I got from the bartenders, Carlos and John, the server Ray (who kept bringing me more stars because I kept asking!), and a few of the servers/performers I met, like Jasmin. Oh! One more thing... I can't forget one of their patrons that evening. A former employee of AsiaSF was there with an older male friend... I asked one of the bartenders if he thought the gentleman friend knew "she" used to work there and his response? "Hell no!"
