it is a bit out of the beaten path, and we did have to go down to the basement to eat, bit it was well worth the trip. some amazing Wonton Soup and some very good Peking Duck. The service was enthusiastic and very friendly. Our cab driver recommended this restaurant as being the cleanest Chinese restaurant in Chinatown. He may be right. I will be back to try more!

We were in San Francisco on business, so didn't stay in our usual area. The hotel recommended this restaurant - which is always kind of risky. We were quite pleasantly surprised - while the exterior of the building doesn't really seem inviting or impressive, the food was delicious - every appetizer and entree was fresh, prepared well and looked appetizing in addition to just being so tasty! - but the service was noticeably more considerate of the "locals" or regular customers, versus those of us who so obviously read the menus and had not been there before. While it was good, I would not make a special return trip .........

So we read such great reviews of this place and we decided to try it for lunch. Not sure if I'm just picky or if we came at an off day. The food is underwhelming and the staff is tolerable at best.

Be careful, they give you a dinner menu but they also have a lunch menu which we later found out about. The prices are completely different for the same food. Dinner is twice as much.

The dungeness crab was one of the best I've had. Many napkins were required as this is strictly a hands on experience. The mushroom medley was so fresh that each type of mushroom maintained a different taste and texture. Service was impeccable. Cloth on tables and in lap. Will definitely eat here again.

This place is definitely a hidden gem. We were taken here by a friend whilst on a trip to San Francisco. The outside does not look like much at first - just what you would expect from any bog-standard asian themed restaurant - but it blew our minds (and tastebuds) away! Everything we tried was honestly delicious (there were six of us, we ordered a lot of food and shared everything)! We did have to queue at the door for a little while as we had not made a reservation, but it was worth the wait. In particular, I recommend you try the crab and the black cod. Everything was good but the thought of those 2 dishes in particular still makes me salivate! :-)
