We ate there tonight with friends. We were both visiting from Australia. The meal was delicious. We ordered 3 main meals with boiled rice between the 4 of us. Good service! The beer and wine were great prices as well the dishes.

Popped into here on numerous visits to San Francisco and I've never been disappointed. Yes it looks more like a cafe than a restaurant however service is always very pleasant and the food very tasty. I asked for something not on the menu and I was told it could be done with no problems. I had Orange chicken and on... More

There's nothing at all wrong with City Chopsticks, and if I lived in the neighborhood I'd be glad to have a standard old-fashioned Chinese around the corner. It's definitely not going for the more adventurous eater, but the portions are big, the prices right, and the beer ice cold.

We found this place on Christmas Eve. We were looking for something a little more "American-Chinese" than what we found in China town. The food was delicious and the portions were large. Note that rice has to be ordered separately. They seem to do a big take-out business. I would give a higher rating but the service was poor. The... More

The food was fine, but not exceptional, while the price was pretty expensive. I got "full" for $22. The service is okay too.

Polite and efficient service nice portions that look and taste good. Somewhat less pricey than the general surrounding of U square. Note that they already include tip on the bill...

We went out for a meal when in San Francisco, we were staying near China Town & wanted to have an authentic meal. The restaurant was a short walk from our accommodation. The meals were great, like most American meals quite large servings, which meant we had some to take home for the next evening. The staff were attentive and... More

Glad we found this, food was good, short wait. Portions were small and rice was not included in the price. Orders are taken quickly, after that no refills in water or check back to see if you'd like anything else. For freshly prepared Chinese in San Francisco this is a good option.

Quick and affordable, convenient location near many hotels. Good portions to satisfy after a long day of site seeing. Try the Combo Chow Mein, General Tso's Chicken and Mongolian Beef.

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
