We visited this restaurant on our first night in San Francisco, after a long drive down from Red Wood National Park. This place was phenomenal. All of the waiters were friendly (and sort of gorgeous) the food was out of this world amazing, service was prompt and the food was piping hot. Between three of us we ordered 2 starters... More

Staying in an apartment not far away from Chestnut Street we ate here twice. First time we ordered a main each and there was way too much to finish as the servings are very generous. Luckily we were able to take home the remainder. We returned on a Saturday night and found it very busy with families. Good tasty food... More

Well it was AMAZING! Best hot and sour soup on earth and the wok tossed prawns were insane! Go! Great relaxed... More

We visit our son in San Francisco often. Most visits include a stop by Dragon Well for their excellent pot stickers and a cold a glass of Piraat (strong and delicious Belgium ale). Casual and comfortable. Certainly a local's favorite given the number of people picking up take out on their way home from work. My wife likes the chow... More

It may not be authentic chinatown chinese, if there is such a thing, but it was very good and spicy and tasty and the kids loved it too. Cozy place so a bit tight. Service was friendly, Prices are OK. Parking in Marina is a pain.

I've been here and ordered takeout countless times over the years. It was barely passable, but convenient. After a long hiatus, dropped in again, and won't be back. Had a scallop noodle dish. Had to ask for a magnifying glass to find the bits of scallop. Greasy. Flavorless. Way too expensive for a tiny plate of greasy, flavorless starch. Used... More

Found this place on a restaurant app and had great reviews. They deserved them. The place is cozy and comfortable. Service was excellent. Food came out quicker than some fast food places. Fresh favors and great portions. Not pricy at all and would recommend this place to anyone visiting SFO.

Great dishes, nice atmosphere, reasonable prices at a cool neighborhood. A place to return to. (Tripadvisor forces me to add at least 100 characters which is quite annoying...)
