So many restaurant choices in China Town, so I'm so glad a friend recommended Oriental Pearl. We ate at three different Chinese restaurants by the end of our visit to SF, but Oriental Pearl was our favorite! Delicious fried rice, hot and sour soup, and...More

Second time here-we were drawn in by Zagat reviews in the window. It's very clean and relaxing. The food is delicious. I highly recommend it.

Highly recommend chicken fried rice, Mongolian beef (spicy) and crispy duck with pancakes. Pancakes are a little thicker than ones you get in the UK and you get carrot instead of cucumber!! Very quick service.

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,
