The four of us needed something tasty for dinner that would also go down easy for one in our group recovering from some intestinal troubles. Eliza's was just the ticket. We got some green beans, pot stickers, a chicken dish, and some moo shi pork....all...were fine, and we enjoyed it in the comfort of home.More

This was a great choice for a family meal. The decor is modern. It is very clean and bright. The place was busy and the dishes were very good. Good location at California and Divisidero.

My wife and I enjoyed dinner . Chicken drumstick appetizer was crunchy and slightly over cooked. The green bean with pork dish was very good, very little oil, well seasoned perfectly cooked green beans with dry crispy peanuts, but not very much pork. The chicken...with cashew nuts was again not oily, perfect cooked broccoli crowns, very tasty, and again a modest portion of chicken. The chicken, shrimp & spicy Eggplant dish was tasty, not oily, but again a modest amount of chicken, and even a more modest amount of eggplant. Overall all main dishes excellently seasoned, not oily, and very tasty. But was put off by the modest amount of protein in each dish given the prices. I am sorry but given my experience at City Chopsticks where the serving sizes are more plentiful, I always leave satisfied and full. At Eliza's, I left still hungry with 3 main dishes, where as at City Chopsticks we would have been satisfied with only 2 main dishes at lower prices.More

This is a wonderful Chinese restaurant tucked into a little neighborhood on California. The portions are not generous, but are sufficient and very tasty!! The service is very friendly and quick. The place is small and very inviting. There are some awesome glass peices decorating...the restaurant, including awesome pieces in the bathrooms. They also do a lot of take out!More

Tasty lunch meal at a reasonable price. I had a crispy duck salad with several sauted vegetables, light sauce and brown rice. Rapide service and unique artistic glass asian décor.

Eliza’s is a great neighborhood Chinese restaurant. Atmosphere is very inviting and food is really good. I always get Eliza’s veggie chow menu and they customize it just like I like it. My husband has ordered several different items—all good.

Eliza’s has wonderful Chinese food in a somewhat out of the way location. But though SF had an abundance of Chinese restaurants Eliza’s stands out.

Our plan was to do a Vietnamese takeout, but they didn't have any soup, so we did a takeout order of hot & sour from Eliza's. The restaurant itself is pretty strange: very few seats, lots of crazy decor, and remnants of some seafood theme....It took a while to get our order, but the wait was worth it: one of the surest and spiciest hot & sours I've ever had.More

Based on what other reviewers wrote, we hoped to love this neighborhood Chinese restaurant. Sadly, we didn’t love it. Potstickers were large, but heavy with a thick dumpling. Mushu pork was OK, but kinda bland. Mongolian lamb had tiny pieces of lamb which were difficult...to find, and the dish was very mild although it was starred as being spicy. Finally the shiitake mushrooms & broccoli were in a very heavy sauce. Service was good. Parking is on street only, so that can be challenging.More

The food here is excellent. Chicken Divine has lots of chicken and excellent vegetables. Won ton soup has shrimp and snow-peas. Veggie pancake appetizer is very good. Moo-shu is excellent. The restaurant tends to fill up quickly and also has a major take-out business. No...problem parking within a block the last time I went.More

This is my favorite Chinese restaurant in SF. I love their kung pao tofu with veggies, but you can't go wrong whatever you choose. Everything is fresh & tasty, cooked to perfection. Dine in or take out. Generous portions. Reasonable prices. Casual yet modern ambience,...decorated with blown glass art and Buddha statues. Lunch M-F only, 11 am to 2:30 pm. Lunch plates include soup of the day, entree, rice (white or brown, your choice), fresh orange wedges & a fortune cookie. Dinner M-F 5 to 8:30 pm, Sat & Sun 4:30 to 8:30 pm. Dinner is a la carte, so soup and/or rice must be ordered if desired. Dinner is served on beautiful plates with varied designs. Servers efficiently take your order, deliver your food, top up your beverages - without extraneous conversation. Eat here for delicious food in pleasant surroundings. Conveniently located on the California 1 bus line, cross street Broderick. Street parking only. Worth the trip, wherever you are in SF!More
