Was disappointed when eating here, as I’d read positive reviews on line. The Capital starter was over cooked and the egg rolls rock hard. My husband had the set menu and the sweet and sour was tasty, but our chicken chow menu had stringy chicken...More

Found this little gem in Chinatown tonight. The food was great, service efficient and the beers were cold. The Egg rolls, Kung Pao Chicken and mixed vegetables were all tasty, but the highlight was the Salt and Pepper Shrimp....yum! 😋 We got there a little...More

Randomly gave this place a go when wandering through Chinatown in search of lunch, and so glad we did! Food was reasonably priced and absolutely delicious, service fast and friendly and the place got very busy with many locals coming in for their mid-week lunch....More

Chinatown
As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's

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,
