“Good Food”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

We came across this unassuming restaurant by chance on our second day in San Francisco. We ended up eating there often because the food was so tasty. You might walk past because of its run down appearance - outside and in - but if you are looking for good Chinese food at a very reasonable price this is the place. The staff were helpful in helping us choose from the extensive menu, and the food came quickly. It is a busy restaurant used by locals and tourists.

“Good Food Fast”
Reviewed June 11, 2012 via mobile

During our stay in San Francisco my wife and I were in Chinatown and were looking for some lunch. We were lucky to stumble across Yuet Lee. We were very satisfied with the food and service. We had chicken fried rice and shrimp fried rice. Also had the salt & pepper chicken wings. Everything was delicious, and service very friendly. Try this place if you're ever in Chinatown.

“A mixed bag.”
Reviewed April 25, 2012 via mobile

We visited and had three dishes - the salt and pepper squid was excellent, however the duck was extremely fatty and the chicken Kung Po contained some very fatty meat and was in a bland gravy sauce with no trace of the advertised chilli. Because of the mixed nature of quality felt very expensive but others seemed to be enjoying their food. It would seem we picked incorrectly from the menu!

“Good food”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

The restaurant was recommended by the owner of the convenience store down the street. The look of the restaurant was such that we might have passed it up without someone telling us about it. Good shrimp dish and mango chicken. My wife and I liked the meal and warmed to the kitschy atmosphere. A steady flow of locals and tourists at 7 PM on a Saturday night. Nothing fancy here; just good Chinese food.
