We've eaten here often. The staff is friendly and helpful. The garlic eggplant is excellent. The green beans were excellently prepared and were cooked just tender crisp. The beef chow fun seems to depend on who is cooking that day. One meal it was well...More

I loved this restaurant. It is so cozy but beautiful. Food was great and service was very fast. I have no idea why anyone would call this a hole in the wall.

My children and I sought out this restaurant after a damp day of walking in Muir Woods. I had read the reviews and hoped for a very flavorful experience. We found street parking (which was a nice surprise), arrived fairly early (5:30) for dinner and...More

I've had way better Chinese food in Chinatown. The food was good but not great. It's a nice environment and caters to a more affluent demographic in the area. They do a lot of take out and there was a line so make a reservation.

We had four separate people recommend this gem on Chestnut Street in the Marina District. It was delicious- more innovative than most Chinese food restaurants, with an upscale atmosphere. We ate here twice during our stay in San Francisco and would highly recommend it to...More

Overpriced Americanized Chinese food. Far from authentic and caters to the taste of those who don't know what authentic Chinese food supposed to taste like, the people that live in the area and willing to pay the price. Go visit Chinatown in San Francisco for...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.
