Being from the SF Bay Area, I knew it was going to be a challenge finding a "good" Chinese food restaurant for myself. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find this place. They had excellent customer service, it was clean, great lighting, and the food was excellent!

The Vietnamese spring rolls were filled with noodles, one leaf of lettuce and a slice of plain tofu. They were served with shredded carrots and a sauce that was too sweet and too salty. I ordered the green beans and asked that they be barely cooked. They came to the table wilted and flavored with too much salt. The shrimp... More

The pineapple was freshly cut and the dish was actually... More

Great location near River Market. The lunch deals are pretty good and come with soup, rice and a fried crab rangoon. Service was just ok otherwise I would give it a 5 rating.

We were a group of 8 on a Saturday night, surprised at the low number of diners present. We ordered spring rolls, egg rolls, crab rangoon and a soup for appetizers. The crab rangoon were the best I've ever had. Our entrees included vegetarian dishes, chicken and lamb. I had the lamb and was very pleased. We all had enough... More

We really enjoy Bo Lings when looking for an elevated "American" Chinese style dinner. Good dishes, but again they are what you would get from your neighborhood place... just nicer.

He said it was authentic. I loved all the seating and the food was fresh. We did wait for a hostess for about five minutes to seat us but otherwise I love this place.
