The Asian population of SF is heavily concentrated in Chinatown, the Tenderloin, the Richmond District and the Sunset District. The Tenderloin tends to be mainly South and Southeast Asians who are mostly poor. The middle class Richmond and Sunset Districts are where you find the wealthier Asians--small businessmen, professionals and so on--but in all these areas there are numerous establishments with signage in Asian languages (many but not all Chinese) and a majority of Asian customers.
