Large bowl of Hot and Sour soup stretched easily for 3. Try the cold jelly fish - excellent, you can also add it to the soup 3 main... More

We stayed over two hours watching the Germany/Italy game and enjoying some awesome dumplings. The place is family owned. The sisters run the place but their brother helps out on weekends. He was super cool and we totally engaged us in conversation when he learned we're Korean. We totally enjoyed the food and conversation. I drank more Tsing Taos than... More

Loved the spicy wontons. Waiter forgot our dumplings but we were so full after the wontons and an order of Gen. Tso's chicken (too sweet for me) that we'll have to go back for them another day.

This is a very good Chinese restaurant right in the middle of China town. The spicy wontons are a specialty and are delicious. Service was very good and, on the night, helped us with recommendations including downsizing the meal as we were ordering too much!

Great food, enough said. Who cares about the service. Just enjoy the orange beef, twice cooked pork. Awesome. Great. Fantastic.

We tried the house pork soup dumplings, veg spring rolls, beef curry noodle soup and vegetable din sum. The soup had delicious flavor. The restaurant is clean and prices are very... More

Would have never went into this place if not for a monthly gathering of friends from Facebook. Very unassuming from the outside, but very nice on the inside. Comfortable and welcoming feeling. The food was pretty good and good sized dishes. Reasonable pricing and good service. They have a desert that's a little different then I'm use too but I... More

Terrific menu variety and great food. This has dim sum, but not the Cantonese variety, but instead the Shanghai and Northern variety, such as steamed soup dumplings, a variety of dumplings with different fillings, and various hand-made noodle dishes. If you love hand-made dumplings this place has perhaps the best pot-stickers I have ever had (other than my mom's -... More

Good food. Limited decor. We were able to sit in a comfortable booth. Bright light. Service was fine. Inexpensive. The bathrooms were a bit grotty. I wouldn't go out of my way to return, but I also wouldn't be unhappy to eat here again. Eggplant with garlic sauce was very tasty and better than the orange peel chicken.

We have been to this restaurant twice during our visit to San Francisco and the food has been very good both times. The first time during the busy Xmas/new year week when we had to wait 20 min for a table. Even though it was super busy the staff were very polite. The Second time we had a table of... More
