We very much enjoyed the excellent, friendly service and the several entrées that we shared. The Spring Rolls were not remarkable but the spicy beef & mushrooms, shrimp and mushrooms, sweet / sour chicken were all excellent. Nice selection of wine and beer.

Despite the language barrier, we were able to order some food. Waited for a while and one of the plates was not what we ordered but ate it anyway since we were really hungry.

The food was great. The service was great. The server was courteous and helpful. The steamed pork buns touted as the house specialty were excellent. We ordered a second round of the BBQ pork buns they were so good. Highly recommend - off the beaten path and not at all touristy

Pretty average food and restaurant, wouldn't go out of my way to go there again. Was close to our hotel after a long day. Cheap though, so that is a plus.

Delicious food, wide variety of choices. We ordered directly from the menu and felt the dishes were tasty, generously sized, and reasonably priced. I also appreciated the modernized, more up to date decor. Very good service. We had a better experience here than in several restaurants in Chinatown. Next time I'm in SF I will seek out this or other... More

Delicious dinner consisting of combination chicken chow mein, beef hor fun, sweet and sour pork and prawns and various dim sum dishes with egg fried rice. Service from a particular waitress was very good as she was able to recommend and advised as to gluten free dishes. Restaurant was very busy during the weekend.

Good dim sum in a clean nice atmosphere. Enjoyed a quick lunch and loved the dishes we had. Got 4 dishes for about 20$ and was happy with the food and service.

When I go for Chinese, I really am not adventurous, but I did see lots of Asian customers eating more adventurous options (dim sum, soups, fish, etc.) We just had shrimp won ton soup, chicken satay, and pot stickers, but they were very good!

Ok Chinese food in city centre. Not worth to commute for, but if in the neighbourhood it's ok. The meal will not enter history, but plenty and well cooked. Not too good English. Fair pricing.

This spot was close to the hotel and looked not as busy and crowded as all the other spots we passed while searching for food! It wasn't empty due to a lack of tasty food! The food was economical, quickly prepared, and very delightful - hated that we had to rush back to a conference! Any of the soups are... More
