We came here since our son has a cookbook by the chef who owns the restaurant and has enjoyed the recipes. Everything was very good, ribs, watermelon salad, chicken, and even the porridge which had some unique flavors. Prices were surprisingly reasonable.

I've been dying to go here, since a foodie friend mentioned it to me. And it didn't disappoint. It's good Chinese food with really small twists in it. And for the twists, you get to pay the privilege for eating not 'traditional' Chinese food. It's...More

If you are strolling the streets of San Francisco, walk the Mission St. It is fun, eclectic, filled with stores and restaurants and then stop at Mission Chinese Food. The place is filled with pleasant aromas that will make you hungry right there. The garlic...More

This is an original for sure. Great tasty dishes. But flaming hot, super spicey so if that's not your thing, ask them to chill a bit and make them manageable for you. The mapo tofu is my favorite; it is sublime.

Trendy, popular. Loud pop music. Food was not tasty. Chow mein was burned. Each dish shared a characteristic of acrid, burnt flavor. Pricey for what was offered. Wait service forgot to bring the drinks ordered (hot tea) I am not likely to return Three plates...More

Was expecting normally good SF Chinese food, but this place is something else. The lamb dumplings came in a sort of tzatziki sauce, the stir-fried kale and delicatta squash was perfectly seasoned, and we had the sour chicken with peppers and potatoes. Each dish had...More

street murals and a high density of bars and cafes
make this neighborhood a magnet for young people.
While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its
top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the
city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the
