“Genuine and Family-style Chinese Food”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

We decided to eat dinner in Chinatown. From our motel n Lombard St. we took Bus No. 30 and exited at Stockton and Clay Street. A student on the bus had recommended this restaurant when I asked her for a place with good food, good service and a Chinese family-style ambiance. She told me to walk one or two blocks downhill from Stockton St., then take stairs to the basement location of the restaurant. We were not disappointed: there were young and old Chinese guests there in a large and nice-looking room. We were offered two tables for six persons each and handed menus in English and Chinese letters. The waiters were friendly and efficient. The food was great and rather inexpensive.

“Go someplace else”
Reviewed August 13, 2011

Stumbled in here after a shopkeepers recommendation in China town. Just one more thing not to trust Chinatown shopkeepers about. The place smelled like cleaning fluid--and I should have left immediately but they kind of sweep you in. Food was slightly below average and the price way too high. Our waitress was helpful and attentive, but service can't make up for food and atmosphere when both are poor.

“Excellent value for money”
Reviewed October 4, 2010

We stumbled across this place when wandering around chinatown. Don't be put off by the decor! The food was really good and very cheap. We had a set meal for four and the plates of food just kept coming. The service is a little less impressive but the food made it worthwhile!

“Great Chinese restaurant!”
Reviewed September 21, 2010

A little off the most beaten of tourist paths, every other diner was Chinese when I entered - which is always a good sign, especially in San Francisco! The beef with broccoli was delish. The meat was melt-in-your-mouth tender and prepared with thin slices of ginger, which I love. The broccoli was just-right crisp. With a bowl of white rice and hot tea (no other except water for me), the meal was under 10 bucks before tax, a very decent price for great food.
