We were staying across the street and, based on reviews, walked over to give it a try. We were a little unsure at first because when we walked in we were the only customers. But we were greeted warmed, shown to a table and given menus. As soon as we opened the menu we knew it was going to be... More

We have been here many times, so was surprised that I have not written about them. We usually order the dong bei fried pork as it's one of my favorite. He loves the beef pancakes. And finally a vegetable dish of some sort. On some days, we like a pot of very spicy noodles and some dumpings. Very authentic northern... More

Went there after a day at the Golden Gate Park, just about a mile away. Had a great meal there with family at a very reasonable price. Got the beef roll which was very good, perhaps needed a bit more sauce but still yummy. The Szechuan boiled fish filets were also delicious and I have had it in many other... More

We ended up eating here as it was close to our hotel. There was plenty to eat and the prices were good. The menu was really good at explaining what the different dishes were. The food was really good and service was quick.

Wow! We are so glad that we wandered across the street from our motel to eat here. Service was prompt and professional. Incredible variety of cuisines and options represented here. The Chicken Chow Mein (noodles) is amazing. We also enjoyed Cashew Shrimp and Potstickers. If you are visiting this part of SF and love authentic cuisine, don't miss this place!

We lived in China for 6 years and miss Chinese food so much! This was just perfect for us! It is Northern style (what we like) and authentic. We got all of our favorites and everything was great. Only thing is that I think the Yanjing had gone bad.

Staff were very friendly and helpful and gave great service. Serving sizes of all the dishes were very generous and great value. If in San Francisco again - would definitely... More

This is a northern style food, Manchurian/Szechuan. If you like spicy food, you'll like this place. It was my first time there and I like it. We had 10 people and everyone ordered a dish so we had a good variety of dishes that most of us have never had. They are know for their beef pancake, so we ordered... More

This little gem was directly across from the motel we stayed in. The staff was very friendly and helpful. All food is cooked to order and served with a smile. A wonderful experience after a long and trying day. I loved the pot of tea that was left at the table. The sizzling beef platter, orange chicken and chow mein... More
