Star Anise serves works of art
Star Anise, a Thai restaurant in downtown Livermore, is a gem just waiting to be discovered. Located a few doors down from Livermore Cinemas, across the street from the building that housed Movida, Eddie Papa’s, and now Clay Pot and next door to what was once Starbucks and is now Nestle’s, Star Anise has survived in the downtown area where others have not. The decor in Star Anise is modern, calming, and in very good taste. The food is excellent and can be works of art as the chef really makes an extra effort to attractively garnish each dish before it leaves the kitchen. One drawback is that the restaurant is fairly small and there is often only one young man running the show out front, which can make for very slow service as he is the server, cashier, busboy, and bartender. Speaking of bartender, they serve beer and Livermore wines.
