Kirin was a little disappointing as we had gone there years ago and it was very good. The food was mediocre although the portions were large

Went with a friend who knows the owner. He ordered all the great dishes. Squab, fish salad, melon soup, crab, and stuffed chicken. Loved it all.

The portions are very large here. I enjoyed the dried fish fried rice. The place is not fancy nor the dishes but if you're looking for a big meal under $10, then this is the go to place. The staff were nice..

Come here for the food, not the atmosphere - which... More

I enjoy eating here when I'm in the Richmond District. The lunch menu is inexpensive and served quickly. The dinner menu has a great selection and is very authentic. Our favorite dish is the fish salad, it has thin fillet of fish and great layer of flavors -pickled, slightl heat, sweet and salt. The small will easily feed 6 people.... More

The food is the normal stuff you get everywhere else except the Sticky Rice stuffed chicken. It's really good but a lil expensive. $28.00 Service was ok.

My brothers and I have been coming here for years and before Henry, the owner, we frequented their other restaurant where they worked before called Happy Immortal. The food is always pretty good and the service friendly. The rice plates is what we usually order. Everything is good in this place. Love this spot!

We were on Holiday from AUS, and stayed in a rental nearby. We had been in the US for over a week and tried much of the food offerings, but had yet to have Chinese. Well we are sorry we waited, for a family of two adults and 3 children, we would normally order a bigger order than we did,... More

Went here for their spicy chicken wings and they did not disappoint. The place is okay, in atmosphere but the food is the real standout? The wings arrived hot and crispy - the Chili seeds added the right amount of spice. The meat was tender and juicy. They offer a complimentary soup of tofu and collards greens that was awesome.
