Granted there is nothing particularly special about Sage except that it is reasonably priced, with fast and friendly service. There is rarely a crowd here, which is perhaps why some avoid it in a neighborhood of interesting eateries. But, for neighborhood locals it is a perfectly acceptable choice for a quick meal. The menu is typical fare, but you'll find less variety than the usual twelve page Chinese menu. A table in the front window provides for decent Hayes Valley people watching. Takeout portions are rather skimpy.
Pros: Value, Speed of Service, Friendly Staff
Cons: Nothing Special Here
