“charming.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

You found everything that is n San Fran's Chinatown but in a smaller area to walk in and less hectic. That made it much more accessible. Knowing Chinese would have made it easier with the vendors as many don't speak English. Authentic.

“A rapidly disappearing community as people move into the suburbs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Can be crowded on week-ends. Noisy, not too clean. Lots of places to shop for fresh vegetables. Walk the block to get the best prices and freshness of the various fruits/vegetables.

“Good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Not real large and most businesses closed by 5pm. Had a good lunch at a Vietnamese resturant. Close by downtown hotels and the BART station.
