Visited on a Monday lunchtime. We had vegetable spring rolls for starters and I had chicken black beans sauce. Food was freshly prepared and of good quality. Restaurant seemed fairly busy and well used by the locals.

Six of us were visiting SFO and were recommended to go to this Chinese as it had awards... many years ago. It looks extremely tired and to be honest dirty. We were seated where they almost threw the plates and glasses down on the table....More

This place is very cute. Service was a little slow but the food was very good. Reasonably priced. My friend and I shared the mini egg rolls and the General Tso’s Chicken. Super Yummy! I would eat here again.

Moderately priced to a bit expensive for Chinese. Pleasant atmosphere, good service, on the edge of Chinatown, and near Kearny St. parking garage which is a plus!

As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's
Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique
neighbourhood decorated with colourful shops, historic
streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs
awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on
dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who
gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or
practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands,

I think there was a tofu dish that didn't contain meat. However this isn't a vegetarian restaurant so do bear in mind that the same wok is used to cook meat dishes.
