Good, cheap restaurants in San Francisco?

I'll be attending a family event in San Francisco in mid-March. In the past when I visited I had money but now, not so much, so I'm looking for some great cheap eats in the city. I'm partial to Asian food of all kinds (and I include Indian in that category) but am open to anything. We're staying on Geary out near Golden Gate Park - are there still fabulous Chinese places on Clement? We're also going to be car-less so much as I would love to travel to Berkeley or Oakland for great food, if I can't get there on the bus or in a cab, it just won't work. Oh, and if there are specific dishes that shine at a restaurant you love, I'd love to know what they are. Thanks in advance, Serious Eaters.
