Not a big place. Probably sits 50 people. Mainly Szechuan style of cooking. Also Shanghai and Hong Kong style. Fresh ingredients. Highly recommend. Service was very polite, courteous and attentive. Will definitely go back if in San Francisco again.

My family and I get takeout from Dragonwell or eat there at least 2-3 times a month. The food is incredible and the menu provides a dish for everyone (vegetarian, meat lovers, salads, soups, etc.).

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.
