Used Google to search for a good restaurant in Chinatown and not did we found one. Clearly a good find when half the customers are Chinese! Nothing much to look at in terms of interior but the food was awesome and the service was efficient...More

What a joke. Not many people who actually live in the Marina district eat here because it is wildly expensive and very average. They are, however, the only Chinese restaurant on Chestnut. A very simple spiced meat dish is about $18 and then with the...More

We visited this modestly appointed restaurant, which is not in Chinatown, but it is in the more residential Marina District of San Francisco. We are extraordinarily pleased. First of all, this is truly a neighborhood restaurant, so if one is looking for a place that...More

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.
