“Authentic Chinatown eating experience”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Walk along bustling Stockton Street in the middle of San Francisco's Chinatown with all the tantalising sights and smells of fresh fruit veg and fruit, some of which you cannot recognise, and you arrive at the above restaurant. The noise of the street does not diminish as you are seated in the clean, basic seating area and listen to the Chinese banter between the chefs and the waiters. The menu is the usual range, but the ingredients are incredibly fresh, and the courses of king prawns and rice and abalone with chicken and noodles were excellent. The wine list is either local Californian Chardonnay or Cabernet Sauvignon, and the beers are Tsing tao or Heineken, but that does not matter as they suit the food which is very authentic, tasty and inexpensive. Not sophisticated, but a welcome break and an insight into the real side of San Francisco.

“Great food, HUGE portions”
Reviewed July 22, 2012 via mobile

A group of 4 of us arrived in San Francisco late and ventured to Chinatown for a late dinner. This is a well known place in Chinatown and although it is in a sketchy part of town it's delicious. Just remember that everything on the menu is separate so if you want chicken, vegetables, and rice for instance you have to order them each separately. For two of us it was $65 and that included a couple beers for my husband. We would definitely recommend and return!!!

“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.
