This review has a good rating. 5 dishes and one fried rice for 5 for us came up to USD100. Decent dinner and I strongly recommend the walnut with shrimps and seafood claypot.

After walking thru China Town we stopped at the Far East Cafe. The Vegetable Spring rolls were delicious. For lunch we had Szechuan Chicken with rice. They had a clean bathroom. Good service and delicious food

We fancied trying one of the many restaurants in China town. We were greeted with a cup of tea and seeing as it was so cold outside this was gratefully received. The food was no different to what we get from the Chinese takeaway at...More

Our bus tour group of 22 were treated to a family style lunch at this super place. The staff was very attentive. The walnut shrimp was my favorite part of the many servings we were offered.

We probably should have realized this would be a let down as soon as we entered. If you go into a Chinese Resytaurant in a Chinatown arrea, at a busy period, and it is only half full and the only people in there are Caucasian,...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,

Sorry, I was with a group and have no idea what the overall price per person was. I would call and talk direct with the catering, or restaurant manager.
