Had a mid-day meal and it was good but the portions were on the small side. Great wait staff and the food was well prepared. I had the Carnitas scramble and could not find much egg but a lot of beans. My partner had Thai chicken salad and there was not much chicken in the dish. Did have a Pliney... More

This place is very low key and chill. The wait staff is pretty laid back. The food was delish! We were a party of 4 and everyone enjoyed their food. I had the Thai Style Noodles with Chicken and Steak, peanuts in a spicy lime garlic broth. It was the BOMB! I love pad thai and this dish was similar.... More

The restaurant looks very unclean and let go. Waitress was MIA. Entrées lacked flavor and spices Would not dine here again

Stopped in for lunch. Heated seating outside, which is nice, or at tables or the bar inside. Comfortable ambiance, and at lunch anyway it was seat yourself. Good fish tacos, although they're definitely a norcal variation--lettuce not cabbage, pico de gallo, and an interesting vinegarette dressing instead of a creamy one. Good, though.

After doing the science museum in Golden Gate Park we passed Park Chow on the way to catch the train downtown and stopped in for a late lunch. Service got off to a slow start due to a change over of staff but then one of the bartenders came over to to take care of the four of us and... More

This place is amazing for any meal on any day. However, if you find a cool day here in the bay and want a bite to eat, make your way to Park Chow and ask to eat your meal on the second floor by the fireplace. You will thank me later.

Great little restaurant off the beaten path. Worth the walk from UCSF. Had the 2 Mexican breakfast options. Delicioso! Beer and wine bar looks fun. Great ambience and service.

I love this place! The atmosphere is cozy and the people are great. The fireplace on the first floor makes it very homey and the upstairs deck is fabulous - even if it's cold. There are heaters! The food is reasonably priced and the staff is very San Francisco - hip and friendly.

Thank Karen H
