We eat here whenever we visit San Francisco. The menu offers an extensive variety and there are also tasty dishes in the counter as you walk in. Our favorite is the mixed gluten. Service was very good and the staff very friendly. Highly recommended!

Delicious and authentic Hong Kong style vegetarian cuisine. No meat, whatsoever, you won't need it. Some dishes are gluten free as well.

I have eaten here twice and it is incredibly welcoming and the food is really rustic. The crispy wonton is light and incredibly moreish. I also recommend the mock goose as a main course. The portions is really large and this is great value for money. You will have change for some great deserts. We had the sweet bean to... More

A small place off the main street. They were accommodating to steaming food and not using oil. Prices were very reasonable. Vegetables were not as flavorful, so needed lots of soy sauce. On a side note, this is a CASH only restaurant. Nothing was posted on the doors or inside. Nice waitress.

On holiday with a friend and her children, one of who is a vegetarian so after a Google search of vegetarian restaurants in San Francisco we decided to try Lucky Creation - I am so glad we did. 3 non vegetarians were extremely pleasantly surprised with just how delicious, and tasty our dishes were. Thankfully we'd all agreed to try... More

We asked the front desk in our hotel to direct us to a vegetarian restaurant and this is where she sent us. Except for the fried wonton appetizer which was freshly prepared and o.k. the other dishes were bland and tasted the same. Before leaving we used the restroom, accessed via the kitchen. I believe if we'd used them before... More

This cozy restaurant on a side street in Chinatown specializes in vegetarian food. From bean cakes to meatless chicken many inspiring and tasty dishes appear on the menu. Homely atmosphere and affordable prices. I would recommend stopping by even for just a quick or small bite.

As a vegetarian, I was really excited to try this place. What sealed the deal for our group was that it was located centrally in Chinatown, which was an area we all wanted to visit. The restaurant itself was a charming, if bit dated hole in the wall. Service was very good and prices are extremely reasonable. My favorite dish... More

Given this restaurant had a 4 star rating by trip advisor I was expecting something good. The food was typical bad western-Chinese food with over reliance on corn starch to thicken the sauces. Black mushrooms were the standard Chinese dried mushrooms you get straight from a packet. Chrysanthemum tea and steamed rice were the nicest things I had there.

Food was not that great. Better off ordering steam rice rather than fried rice cause it was hardly fried and was a bit watery. The curry and the tofu were not seasoned enough. Staff member were not that interactive. If you're in a rush to get food then I guess it's ok but otherwise I wouldn't go here for quality... More
