So to be clear, this is a basic Cantonese Chinese eatery - functional, perhaps unattractive in appearance, but on the food front it does deliver - stick to their key dishes and you won't go wrong! Also, choose the $20.99 for 3 dishes menu if...More

I can't tell you how the food tastes. The waiter would not bother to ask if the food I'm allergic to was in the dish I ordered so I got up and left.

Just like a jump to Asia. This place serves authentic Chinese food. Everything is fresh and very tasty. Huge portions, friendly service. We had a 3 dishes deal. Highly recommend (!)

Very rare to find goose meat and Yee's delivers a jumbo sized portion for under 9 bucks. Great value and better taste. Not for the food snob but perfect for a meat lover. Great over noodles. Great roasted look and taste did not disappoint.

This is a classic, old-school San Francisco Chinatown eatery and that’s what we were searching for. With the assistance of Yan a lovely old Asian man just walking by and who overheard our conversation, he led us to this restaurant. Yan (a retired school teacher)...More

In the heart of Chinatown, definitely not a touristy place. Clearly frequented by residents of the area, and super busy! Friendly service, menu a bit intimidating if you're not familiar with this type of cuisine. Did the "lunch combo" and was so much food we...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,
