A coworker and I went here for dinner on our last night in San Francisco. It came well-recommended by local Asian friends and the hotel concierge. Our food was mouthwatering. It was perfectly. Staff were friendly and efficient. Definitely a place to return to.

We were disappointed as we expected more. The food was average at best. I asked for spicy and the dish was bland. I wish we would have had an another opportunity to eat elsewhere in Chinatown during our vacation.

We asked for a recommendation on where to find the best Chinese food from a local and he directed us here. It doesn’t look like much from the outside. When you walk in you’re directed to the basement to the dining room. I’ve been here...More

My guess is that the dishes that are individually prepared could be customized. I'm not familiar enough with Chinese cooking to know if all is created to order or if some items would be more like ordering chili or stew... More
