This restaurant provides beautiful and sincere service and food. A great venue for large groups or a solo feed. I didn't get a chance to try the seafood but it was fresh ad my Chinese friends finished it off completely.

I got in to the Hilton around 9 pm and my friend and I went to the Garden as it's next to the Hilton. We found the food to be very good. We had a shrimp dish and a pork dish. We got there around 9:20 on a Thursday night. The restaurant was fairly full and there's a sign on... More

This was the worse fried rice I have ever had. The rice was over cooked and you could count the amount a bits of pork in it. Barely an veggies. Could make it through the it. I would have the Yong cho fried rice again, but I would try something different here.

Wow. Our post ballgame chance at this restuarant was a crowd pleaser. The BBQ pork is moist and sweet not covered in a dry red glaze like backhome. We had several different meals that you can get in any place on main street america and every single choice was better here in san francisco. Our party of 8 had no... More

Cantonese style food, I believe. I had the spring rolls which were tasty but nothing special. Also had the lobster & noodles. Very tasty - but you have to take the shell off yourself. And they simply cut up the lobster with kitchen sheers (or maybe a sharp knife), not the more typical approach back east. Very basic, unadorned place.... More

It was right across the street from my hotel, making it totally convenient for me to dine at. And what a place! Excellent food, well prepared. The fish dish I had there was out of this world, and I look forward to returning here one day.

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s version of Wall Street. The rush of business people make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of historic and contemporary architecture, including the iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours, bars and restaurants quickly fill up with happy hour revelers. Stocks aren’t the only kind of market being followed, the Ferry Building Marketplace on the Embarcadero is a gourmet food emporium and farmers market that will satisfy anyone working up an appetite.
