Didn't review beforehand but figured it'd be worth a shot when we were collared by the street hawkers handing out coupons. Meal was ok, nothing too special. Service was very good.

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

practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands,
