Our waitress was kind. The water glasses were dirty. One had lipstick stain and the other a weird film. The Crab Rangoon barely had anything inside. The special fried rice and Mongolian beef were ok. We've had better and cheaper Chinese food elsewhere. Would not recommend this place.

As native San Franciscans maybe our palates are spoiled, but this was a ghastly representation of Chinese cuisine. The place was close to the Metro and Chinatown Gate and one of the first establishments you happen upon, but we should have continued farther into Chinatown. The service was poor and the Kung Pao beef was tough and gristly. The extra... More

Three of us went for dinner and initially we just want to have light dinner (our son already had a lot of sushi in asian spices nearby). Initially we ordered a soup, 1/4 portion of roasted duck and wanted to share a bowl of rice, the server told us to leave, no need to dine there with a rude attitude.... More

In Washington on business, looking to eat Chinese in China Town, passed the Irish Pup and continued to get Chinese. Big mistake, the place is tired, service poor, and food was so so. If you want fried rice $2 more, drink refills charged $2.24 per refill, learned the hard way. Food was average, had the Kung Pao chicken and friend... More

We stopped by for dinner and we were pleasantly surprised. The spring roll was just okay and we were a little worried the rest of the mean would be the same. The entrees were great and very large portions. Service was okay. Would go again.

Great food. We all got something different & only one dish was so-so. That was the shrimp & cashew dish which had way too many green peppers.

The good there was great. Everything was so good and it all came out the way we wanted the food to be. The only thing wrong was the service. Our waiter was not very friendly and seemed like she could be doing better things with her time. Otherwise this place was great

My boyfriend and I loved this place. We had been looking for an authetic Chinese restaurant and we found it here. We knew we were in gor authetic Chinese when we saw that we were the only white people eating at the place, tge rest of the customers were Asians. The food was not given in huge portions but it...

I'm just choking down as much of the steamed dumpling as I am able while writing this. My litmus test for any Chinese restaurant is always the steamed dumplings and hot and sour soup. Soup was cold and bland. Dumplings arrived with a long black hair that was not in the description. They brought a fresh order. I wish they... More
