Great portion size for a great price. Great hole in the wall place. I usually always order the mixed platter which is chicken, grilled pork, imperial roll and tons of rice with meat sauce. One of the best imperial rolls I have ever had.

On my last review, I recommended trying their Ma Po Tofu with rice and I still recommend this dish EXCEPT this business does not conduct itself like a business so you never know when it's going to open or when it closes. The woman who...More

People stand in line in the rain to get this incredibly savory food! Since 1972, I have loved this place. The family run business (Say HI! to Karen!) never skimps on quality and flavor. Flamed grilled chicken, and thinly sliced pork skewers dunked repeatedly in...More

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
