I've eaten here now and then over the years. The service is unfailingly friendly and attentive. The food is consistently delicious and plentiful. I'm a fan of hot and sour soup - it's great here. On my last visit, I went with a friend and we had an excellent table by the window. We talked for 3 hours. There never was any pressure on us to leave.

Simon has been in Marin [and around the Bay Area] for a long time... yet he is a regular fixture at his San Rafael restaurant and knows most of the locals. His foods offer so many flavors, and you can dine in the large restaurant or in the enclosed patio by the street. It is rated one of the 25 best Chinese restaurants in the country!

We frequently dined at this restaurant when it was located in Larkspur Landing. Food: Excellent. Service: Attentive.

Two decades later, we dined for the first time at its present location on Fourth Street. We were generally disappointed. The pot stickers were served without hoisin sauce. When we pointed this out to the waiter, he directed us to the containers of vinegar and soy sauce. Kind of saying -- 'help yourself'.

The hot and sour soup came so microwave-nuked that my partner had to apologetically spit the first spoonful back into her bowl. It also lacked the traditional presence of large shrimp, seaweed and meat. There were a sampling of miniature shrimp though. The Szechuan Spicy beef was acceptable but not the Scallops w/snow peas and cashews. It was assuringly insipid. And as one reviewer adequately remarked, it is the windowed dining area that one sees from the street which has an inviting allure. But once inside, it turns out to be a small dining area with the main dining area tucked in the rear, and is is windowless and dreary.

We went there for lunch, having eaten there several times a few years ago. At that time the food (and service) were very good. And there used to be a Yet Wah restaurant in San Francisco that is now out of business.
So, there was only one other table occupied when we arrived, but we waited almost 10 minutes before they brought the menu. The waitress was not helpful and didn't seem very interested in serving us. When the food arrived it was... mediocre.
We will not be returning.

We dropped in for an early dinner and were pleasantly greeted and served. Large menu selection. Good tea. Nice to know that this restaurant stays open late to attract after the event clientele.
