Very nice!!!

Loved the food; linens on tables. An oasis of quiet in crazy Super Bowl town ( we are here Friday before SB). We had Mongolian beef and beef broccoli, both great! Would recommend.

Had lunch and dim sun was what we ordered.The quality was good but some of the smallest dim sun portions we've ever had.Maybe we were spoiled by the larger # of pieces we got when we were in Hong Kong and expected something similar here.

About 4 streets in from the Chinatown gate entrance. Doesn't look great from the outside but the staff and the service was excellent. We had duck with pancakes to start which were really tasty. Proper pancakes and the duck is shredded for you and the pancakes made up ( came 6 between the 2 of us). We ordered sweet and... More

We were strolling round Chinatown and came upon this restaurant, one of the few open on Monday evening. It didn't look particularly impressive at street level but once we went up to the first floor it all changed. Lovely restaurant, great food and good service. We weren't that hungry so had Peking duck and Mongolian prawns with egg fried rice.... More

One of the best in town for a grat chinese meal Just in the heart of China Town The owners are so kind. The service very good. Their best on my opinion is peking duck. Also dumplings and spring rolls and mongolian beef. Always had a great experience!! Not to be missed!!

This is not a restaurant I would recommend. We had my great granddaughter with us, and asked for a high chair. We were seated in a rear corner between 2 windows, both of which were open. It was cold, rainy, and windy. We asked to close the windows as we were cold. She said it was only open a little... More

They have all of the typical major and popular dishes. It wasn't bad but it wasn't amazing either. The taste was average...the portions were big, but the price was a little higher too. The staff and management were friendly though. We had: Egg Plant Marinated Special - Good...I'd give it like a 6/10 Mongolian Beef - My favorite one...I'd give... More

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighborhood decorated with colorful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighborhood.
