This restaurant was in the lobby of my hotel, the Orchard Gardens. I was surprised the were not open at check in, but it seems they are only open 6a-10a weekdays and 7a-10a on weekends. Which would explain that. The price is very expensive. An...More

I had a breakfast burrito with turkey sausage. In all of my travel, I have not had a breakfast burrito sooooo good. I did not want to go back the next day for fear it would ruin my feelings of the cook.

Convenient when staying at The Orchard Garden. I was pleased with how tasty the food was and would eat there even if I wasn't staying at the hotel but was in the area.

Hidden gem. The waitress was so nice and talked to us while our food was coming. The waitress suggested a vegetable soup after my mom asked. The chef made us a delicious vegetarian soup along with the other yummy food we ordered. Definitely recommend!

Accommodations were made when there was a couple items missing from menu and free ice cream provided in lieu. Our children were warmly welcomed in our "tourist's" attire despite the classy atmosphere. No need to search for organic on menu as according to website, it's...More

Roots has the best food I've had in San Fran- my partner says his was the best burger he's had in America- and he is picky. I think the business would improve if you could see it was a restaurant from the street. At the...More

This was a recommendation from a friend who lives in SF. Located inside the Orchard Hotel on Bush Street near Grant and China Town, this was a lovely, elegant and relaxing place for dinner. Service was attentive and the menu choices were creative Asian-Fusion selections....More

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,
