“AMAZING Mai Tai!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

You won't be disappointed! I was able to have 2, but they definately are STRONG - but TOTALLY worth the $9. You can also order a few snacks from the place across the street that will deliver for you. Our bartender was so sweet. I can't wait to return :)

“A different place to have a drink!”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Ended up visiting this place by accident really and only found out its name through Tripadvisor reviews, cheesy decor but was a pretty cool place to stop for a drink in Chinatown.

“Tie on a Mai Tai at Li Po”
Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

My spouse and I recently traveled to SFO, for a special birthday celebration! While in Chinatown we recognized the Li Po Lounge from an Anthony Bourdain special and decided to stop in for a Mai Tai. We were not disappointed! We had a great conversation with the bartender and she described the ingredients of the Mai Tai . . . Dark rum, light rum, Bacardi 151 and Chinese Liquer and pineapple juice. We actually had two and almost missed ou dinner reservations! It was a very memorable birthday experience! We also purchased a jug of the imported Chinese rose liquer, the special ingredient for the Mai Tais. Happy to say it traveled safely back home with us wrapped in bubble wrap in our checked in luggage!

“Kick butt Mai Tai”
Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

Stopped by after dinner and had a great time, Mai Tai's are potent but fantastic. Best dive bar ever, you have to stop in if you're in China town

“Small dive bar with one great drink.”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

Pretty small dive bar. Chinese Mai Tai is their specialty. It's $9 and tastes pretty awesome, and will get you sort of drunk. If you are in Chinatown check it out.
