I chose this restaurant in all of China town because my gluten free app recommended it. They do not have a gluten free menu, but they understand what it is and will make recommendations. I do not have celiac so I don't know if it is safe for those who do. I ordered prawns with honey walnuts and chicken with... More

We had a really rude waiter which made us feel quite uncomfortable. Food was very disappointing as well. Will never be back here

We can highly recommend this restaurant. Came in late and wanted to eat dim sum. The staff was very helpful and service oriented and let us order outside of the menu. The food was very good.

After reading the good reviews on trip advisor we decided to give this place a try. From the outside it doesn't look very inviting, to be honest i probably wouldn't of went in if it wasn't for the reviews. Once you get inside it looks completely different, very smart and clean. The staff were very friendly and prompt. Our food... More

The food was so horrible. The chicken was all fat and gristle. Berry disgusting. I had a shrimp dumpling they use peanut oil. Our server was very rude to us when we asked her to take the food back.

Has a very late dinner here!! We were greeted by exceptional customer service, fast service and fresh and yummy food. Ordered the vegetable chow min which was delicious and hubby had seafood chow min. Food portions are huge so will definately have left overs 😀

Nice place. Went upon recommendation of concierge at hotel while in town for conference. The hot and sour soup was the best hot and sour soup I've ever had. I had the Mongolian beef which the waitress warned me was spicy. Great! That's what I wanted. I think we had a different definition of spicy. It was good, the beef... More

The Oriental Pearl in Chinatown was recommended to us by one of the locals. This restaurant was very nice and clean. The staff here is very friendly and the food is DELICIOUS! We ordered Dim Sum for appetizers, which were incredible! My friends and I ordered Cashew Chicken and Sweet & Sour Chicken, which were all perfectly cooked and full... More

We were looking for a place that served traditional Peking Duck and we found it. Prepared and served "as it should be". In addition to the duck, we chose several of their dim sum offerings and were quite pleased with it all. This restaurant is off of the tourist track but well worth finding it.

Thank Nancy-SC

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighborhood decorated with colorful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighborhood.
