“Good service, good food”
Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

I stumbled upon this place while walking around Chinatown and it was great. Anytime our president visits a place and takes pictures with the staff, you should now its going to be good. I got beef fried rice and it was yummy!

“So disappointed!”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Went to Great Eastern because the concierge at the hotel made the recommendation. Awful service from the waiters, the food was not good. Got cold duck and the waiter almost threw the plate on the table. Definitely will never return!

“great chinese dinner”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

we read about Great Eastern on tripadvisor & it lived up to the rating. We went on a week night & there was no waiting. Took cable car to a close stop which is a fun way to go to dinner. Restaurant was full with about half tourist & half oriental. had shrimp in lobster sauce & a half duck dish. Both dishes were very tasty. Had appitizer of spare ribs that had a nice pungent taste. Had a beer with dinner & total bill was $55.00. Friendly waiter who was able to describe dishes. Would go again if in San Francisco.

“delicious and authentic”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

A quick clue to authenticity in any ethic area is the proportion of obvious tourists. Given that my family was the only non -- Asian family at lunch time tells you a lot about Great Eastern's authenticity.

The waiters seemed nice, but we had to communicate in pantomine. Fortunately the menu had pictures, making it easy to chose multiple varieties of dim sum; as well as clams in black bean sauce and the day's lunch special -- szechuan lamb (which was fantastic)

Well worth returning to for a piping hot, delicious lunch
