Simple fare. Modest decor. Well-priced luncheon menu. Many selections. Curry chicken and chicken chow on rice noodles are both good. Portions plentiful. Fast service, if you are trying to catch your parking meter. Bathroom needs attention.

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,
