Recommended by the hotel concierge and can only assume he must be on a commission as the place was tacky and the food was awful Cold and bland....the food and the service. Avoid! You've been warned!

City tour bus brought us to the 'gates' and we walked here. Happy, happy combo of quality and choices. Got Dim Sum for two. Fabulous flavors.

This was recommended by a friend so my wife and I tried it. We've been to Chinatown hundreds of time, and I don't know why we missed this place. It was a Monday so it was not too crowded. The place was clean and the atmosphere was relaxing, not too noisy and good for business meetings. The prices are $$$... More

we ate here as part of the walking tour, it was upstairs and you could easily miss it. We were served a 10 course dim sum lunch. Some of the items were familiar others were new but all were very tasty. The chow mien was great. The decor was so-so but the service was good. Overall it was a fun... More

On holiday in San Francisco we asked for a recommendation for a restaurant in Chinatown, looking for a relaxing evening out. It was anything but. The food was ok, certainly nothing special. But each course arrived as you finished the previous one, leaving us feeling rushed. If we'd been having more than 3 courses I would have had the chance... More

This restaurant was ok for South Dakota. The Hunan beef had so much msg it was mushy. You don't want to hear how I slept (or didn't sleep) that night. Another case of kickback to the hotel concierge.

Oriental Pearl restaurant was a "Gem" hiding in China Town. I was advised by a good friend of mine not to miss the opportunity to dine here. We loved the dumplings and spring rolls we had for appetizers and our main dishes were NOT DISSAPPOINTING! This was a great find and I'm glad I made time to eat here. The... More

After scouring for some good Chinese and ending up in dirty restaurants we found this treasure. As soon as we walked in the staff were very accommodating with glasses of water and orders straight away. Clean place with linen tablecloths. Food was great , Hot and Sour Soup outstanding. Would go back, enjoyed every mouthful.
