Entire family enjoyed it - teenagers and the parents, way too much food for four, fast and friendly, not enough room on the table, waitress spoke flawless English and was more than helpful

We sat down, ordered and then we started to look around. "Oh-oh, what have we done?" The restaurant is filthy and they should be living in dread of a visit by any non-visually impaired health inspector! Walls were in dire need of cleaning. Ceiling was...More

We had dinner there and ordered the set dinner for two. It consisted of sweet sour pork, dumpling soup, stirred fired beef vegetables, spring roll, and fried rice. The food was ok and nothing spectacular but the prices were affordable in SF. Service was non-existence...More

If the locals eat there it can't be all bad! Just enjoyed a really tasty dinner for 4 with way more than you could realistically eat including drinks for $85 including tip! Decor is basic but staff really pleasant and couldn't find any fault whatsoever...More

As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's
Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique
neighbourhood decorated with colourful shops, historic
streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs
awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on
dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who
gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or
practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands,
