One of the best restaurants in San Francisco easily. Granted, the menu isn’t expansive by an means, and the decor and hospitality might not be top notch. Simple food that’s flavorful is what makes this tiny place an institution. Give the ladies that run the...More

I've been coming here since 1982 and it's still yummy-good. I eat here at least once but more like twice during my visits back home to San Francisco. It's easy to find as it's on California between Polk and Larkin Streets. The food is good...More

This really is a hole-in-the wall restaurant but I love it. I love the 7 spice chicken; comes with cabbage salad and white ride covered with meat sauce. Serving is plentiful and inexpensive. Love the taste! I am guessing family owned because it has been...More

You get what you pay for, and you pay for what you get, generally speaking. And this place is a prime example. Its cheap and plentiful food. I have to say though; it appears to have questionable health standards and less than authentic cuisine, only...More

Great portion size for a great price. Great hole in the wall place. I usually always order the mixed platter which is chicken, grilled pork, imperial roll and tons of rice with meat sauce. One of the best imperial rolls I have ever had.

This little hole-in-the-wall restaurant has been around for quite awhile and is quite a neighborhood gem serving good food at a very fair price. They used to have a very limited menu but has recently added more selections. One of these new selections is their...More

People stand in line in the rain to get this incredibly savory food! Since 1972, I have loved this place. The family run business (Say HI! to Karen!) never skimps on quality and flavor. Flamed grilled chicken, and thinly sliced pork skewers dunked repeatedly in...More

We found this little gem through TripAdviser - thanks! It really is tiny, more a hole in the wall than a restaurant. We managed to get the last two seats and struck up conversation with a couple of regulars who offered their recommendations. My partner,...More

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
