Step off Haight Street into Citrus Club; soothing low-lit cafe/bar. Beer and a great selection of sakes offer thirst quenching. Hunger, on the other hand, will be more than satisfied by the wide range of noodle dishes. Generous portions of recipes from all over the Asian continent give you more than enough sustenance to brave the Haight again when your meal is through. As the name implies, many dishes here are seasoned with citrus to enhance the spicy flavors. Favorite dishes include coconut chicken with spicy lemon, and noodles with garlic and shiitake mushrooms.
It doesn't get better than this. The atmosphere alone is extremely unusual and unique. The wait is part of the experience, not an inconvenience.
The food is unusually fresh. The waitresses are subtle and intelligent.
The food/money ratio is unusually high.
We always go there.
Looking for a cheap, but healthy dinner? Citrus Club will fill you up with their zesty noodle soups and tangy garlic edamame. I live across the street from the Citrus Club, but it took me months to discover it. The window peeks into the kitchen, where vats of broth are waiting to be ladled into soup bowls. I didn't know what was in those vats and based on the amount of steam they were creating, I thought the place looked dodgy.
I am so glad my sister called me crazy, because I really was insane to skip this place for so long. I crave their delicious food so much now, I have to limit my attendance to once a week.
PS. I won't give it 5 stars, only because some of their wok noodle dishes can be greasy. Stick with the soups.
Delicious, zesty, and amazing value for money. Vast noodle dishes for $8 or less. The largest and tastiest six-dollar soup you're likely to find anywhere.
The only downside is that you can expect a long wait for a table at peak times. And forget about parking...
The Citrus Club has to be my all-time favorite noodle bar. The food is delicious, the prices are negligible, the restaurant itself is lit and decorated perfectly and... they play good music! That's all I really care about when I eat and I find that the Citrus Club never plays music that doesn't fit in with the atmosphere. The wait can be painful sometimes, but it's worth it!
Citrus Club is named thus because they use juices instead of oils to do their stir fry cooking. While the place is nothing fancy in terms of decor, it's presentable and the menu's set at a respectable price for the quality of food you get. I thought the dishes I had (a peanut stir fry noodle and some green beans / tofu starter) were both tasty and different from the run of the mill Thai restaurants in the area.
I went to this place with a group of friends this past Saturday. We waited for about 30 minutes for a table. I ordered a Shanghai Noddles, which is a little bit salty. They added too much soy sause I guess. The value of the food is fine, not too expensive, about $13-15 per person.
This place has a great vibe. You usually have to wait but you can grab a drink and squeeze around the small bar area. I think the food is excellent for the price and LOVE the tiger shrimp dish and spring rolls. A neighborhood fave for eat in or take out. Only drawback is on occassion getting seated next to the bathroom.
You can't go wrong with Citrus Club for great noodles, and their fresh vietnamese spring rolls are delicious (with the soft rice wrappers, not the deep-fried stuff). I had the yellow curry noodles and my friend had the shanghai noodles. While I was happy with but not ecstatic for my noodles, I almost devoured the shanghi noodles, they were sooo yummy. Recommended with a large Saporo (but what isn't).
