Don't be put off by the outward appearance as it looks nothing from the street. However once you have either climbed the stairs or used the lift to the first floor, things look vastly different. Went very early in the evening so not too many...More

Enjoyed quite an adequate Chinese meal here. Located just of main Streets of Chinatown. Make sure you visit the small park on Clay Street where local Chinese gather, great people watching & one of the only public restrooms in Chinatown area.

My family of five really enjoyed this restaurant. Try the lunch specials - they are a much better deal and have a lunch appropriate amount of food. Loved the sweet and sour pork.

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,
