I think Chaya is great. I was reading San Francisco Magazine and really liked the article on service in the city. It was pretty informative. But I don't know if things are as confrontational in restaurants as they say. Maybe I'm a laid back guy though I have had some bad times at restaurant, just not too many. Even at Chaya, but there really friendly.
I wanted to know if there are any places like it in the city that I haven't been to. You know not too stuffy with a good bar, and good happy hour stuff.
