Went to the Clay Pot based on TripAdvisor recommendations. Food was good but not extraordinary. Prices reasonable, atmosphere maybe typical Hong Kong, but not exactly nice. Staff was friendly, though

I don’t review restaurants very often but this one felt absolutely necessary. Came here as reviews had suggested that it was a good place for Chinese food in Chinatown. Service was slow but we understood it was a busy restaurant so wasn’t a problem. However,...More

Heart of Chinatown - second floor location. Friendly staff. Well priced. Decor needed an an update. Food was hit or miss. Unusual for Chinese but some dishes were somewhat tasteless. We wouldn’t return.

As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's
Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique

gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or
practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands,
